    Ravi Saptami Vrata/International Day for Biological Diversity

    Ravi Saptami Vrata 

    If the Sunday falls on the Saptami tithi, this day is considered as Ravi Saptami, today is Sunday and the tithi is seventh day or Saptami. On the day of such a coincidence, worship of Lord Surya Narayan, fasting, etc. are performed. Worshiping the Sun God, the revered deity of the Navagrahas and the gods, by enlightening the whole world with the radiance of His nature.

    Importance of the Lord Sun
    Worshiping the inspiring Sun God on this day to attain the position, prestige, prosperity, child happiness, and the desired outcome. The Sun God is considered to be the Sattvic form of Brahma in the dawn, the Sun God who gives Tamo guna at noon is considered to be the form of Devadi Dev Mahadev during the afternoon, and the Sun which exists in the majestic form in the evening art is considered to be the Vishnu form. Sun, in itself, is a mixture of several forms and features of god and godly power, a reference point of this creation and the lord of all planets.

    Surya is depicted with chakra, which is called Dharma Chakra and depicted as an epithet for major Sanatan gods, Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwar.

    Vedic importance of the Lord sun
    उदय ब्रह्मणोरुपं मध्यान्हेतु महेश्वर: ।
    अस्तकाले स्वयं विष्णु त्रिमूर्तिश्च दिवाकर: ।।

    In the process of worshiping and adoring Bhagavan Surya with twelve characteristics, Dhata, Aryama, Mitra, Varuna, Indra, Vivasvanta, Pukha, Parjanya, Anshavan, Bhaga, Tvashta, Vishnu, etc. 12 forms are worshiped.

    The brightly shining Sun signifies the power of universal consciousness, Vedas declares the Surya to be the creator of this universe and more parallel universes. Darwin also brings the same logic in his theory of evolution, the unicellular creator evolves to a human being in this universe because of the favorable environment contributed by the Sun. Vedas states that wisdom, vision, self-determination, realization, power, light, and life are the output of the sun and its rays. Ravi Saptami is a simple acknowledgment of Satan ritual towards the Sun, as Suryanarayanan.

    Ravi Saptami vrat
    Generally, fasting is done on Sunday to make the sun happy and bring good results. There is a scriptural statement that the fast of Sunday should start from the auspicious coincidence of Ravisaptami or the first Sunday of the Shukla Paksha. On the occasion of such auspicious coincidence, Surya Narayan should be worshiped by wearing red attires. If it is possible to fast for twelve months that’s perfect, but for them who can't make twelve months can fast for twelve Sundays. On the day of fasting, one can fast by worshiping Surya Narayan and requesting Argha. Argha means offering water to the Lord Surya with folded hands.

    By doing such fasting etc., the knowledge and intellect will be as bright as the sun and according to astrology, if there is a solar defect and planetary pain in the birth horoscope of the person born, the worship done on such an auspicious day will reduce the planetary pain and get auspicious blessings of Suryanarayana.

    Mantra of Surya Argha
    एहि सूर्य सहस्रांशो तेजोराशे जगत्पते ।
    अनुकम्पय मां भक्त्या गृहाणार्घं दिवाकरः ।।
    ॐ भूर्ब्भुवः स्वः जगतसाक्षिणे श्रीसूर्यनारायणाय नामः ।।
    Meaning, Lord Surya shall take care of wisdom, position, success, health, popularity, and all my desires.

    May light and life always favor.

    Bio diversity day, 2022

    Background of Bio Diversity day
    May 22 of this year is being celebrated by the world community as Biodiversity Day like other years. Let's talk in this context today. This day is celebrated all over the world to show the importance of biodiversity. On May 22, 1992, the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, decided to move forward with the Convention on Biological Diversity. Then, from 1994 to May 22, the practice of celebrating Biodiversity Day began.

    Theme for this year:
    Biodiversity Day 2022 is being celebrated under the slogan: " “Building a shared future for all life”.".

    The decision of the Geneva Conference was adopted by Resolutions 55 and 201 of the United Nations General Assembly on 22 December 2000, and May 22 of each year was declared International Biodiversity Day. Legally, in Nepal, biodiversity is defined in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act 2053 BS. Biodiversity means the diversity of ecosystems, species systems, and hereditary systems.

    Bio diversity in Nepal
    In Nepal, there are 207 species of mammals, 867 species of birds, 43 species of amphibians, 100 species of reptiles, and 185 species of fish, 653 species of butterflies, more than 3966-night flying butterflies are found in Nepal. These diversities are everlasting and the stakeholders and the community have a significant role to play in their institutional protection and tourism growth. There is biodiversity and we are, may Nepali air, water, soil, sky, and wind prevail.

    In the hilly and mountainous regions, the north-south facing walls of cliffs make it sunny on one side and humid on the other. If you travel even a shorter distance, you will reach a completely different natural environment, you can experience biodiversity in Nepal. Kechna in Jhapa district has a minimum elevation of 60 meters above sea level in Nepal and a maximum altitude of 8,848 meters on the top of Mt Everest is also in Nepal. More species of birds are found in Nepal than in any other part of the entire Europe. Most species of butterflies are found in Nepal. There are more than 500 species of edible crops in Nepal, of which 200 species are cultivated.
    Meaningful wishes on the bio diversity day
