    Ravi saptami Wrata/Surya Pooja/Bhumi Pooja

    Do you know, if the Sunday falls on the Saptami tithi, this day is considered as Ravi Saptami, today is Sunday and the tithi is the seventh day or Saptami. On the day of such a coincidence, worship of Lord Surya Narayan, fasting, etc. is 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. 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.

    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 into 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 lives are the output of the sun and its rays. Ravi Saptami is a simple acknowledgment of Satan ritual towards the Sun, as Suryanarayanan.

    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 those 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.

    Surya Puja

    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.

    Bhumi Puja
    Before starting planting in Asar, it is customary to worship the soil in Panchatatva form.

    The famous festival of the Magar community is celebrated with great pomp in the districts of Rolpa, Rukum, Salyan, Palpa, Dailekh, Jajarkot etc. and in all the districts of Rapti zone including Dang. The Magar community of Rukum reached the lake in their traditional attire and returned with the flower from high lands after worshiping the forest deity. Besides this, all the districts of Nepal have their own tradition of worshiping the land. There is a history of celebrating this festival since the ancestors cleared the forest and started farming.

    Bhumi Puja is associated with agriculture and clouds
    Bhumi pujan ceremonies officially start from he last day of Jestha. Bhume Puja is associated with agriculture and clouds, on the last day of Jeshta, flowers are picked from the high lands of mountains and Bhume Puja is started in lower lands. It is believed that there will be no shortage of rain after worshiping the high land where the clouds are.

    Draught of 2080 B.S
    This year, there has been a very hot summer and drought all over Nepal, which means that the importance of Bhume Puja has increased even more in this situation where many other rituals have been performed since the wedding of frogs and many others alike. To avoid natural calamities such as floods, landslides and storms and to pray for good farming, Bhumi Mata is worshiped and celebrated with great enthusiasm for about a week, and at that time a small fair is held in every village of Nepal.

    How is Bhumi puja done?
    Whether there is any construction or agricultural work on the land, the land should be worshiped after testing and cleaning it. It is customary to worship Ganesha in the soil for the initiation and smooth completion of any work. In Sanatan Darshan, the land is considered to be the same as Gaurup (Holy cow), therefore, the land is worshiped with the idol of Lord Ganapati, as well as Ishtadev and Kuldevata.
