    Saune Shankranti/Luto Falne Din/Sombare Aunshi

    Pauranik importance and significance of the Month Shrawan
    Even in the Shiva Purana, it is mentioned that Lord Shiva, who walked along the river Ganga on his forehead, became water himself. Shrawaan is the month of water and its feature, Shrawaan is the month of Shambhu and his followers, from Kailash Parwat till the north pole, from the dead sea, will the south pole, may Shrawan prevail the goodies and purity, may Lord Shiva reside in every hearts.

    The month of Shravan or July started after the end of Asar. This month is also called Pavas Ritu as it rains heavily. There are many important festivals like Haritalika Teej, Rakshabandhan, Nagpanchami, etc. on different dates of this month. Shrawaan, is the month of Lord Shiva, which is why every Monday of this month, Sanatan women fast and worship Shiva to get a good bride. Devotees offer patram pushpam and falam-toyam to Shiva linga this month.

    Samundra Manthan and the Shrawan month
    Mythological interpretation of the month of Shravan states that "Samundra Manthan" ocean churning happened this month and then Halahal poison was released. It is mentioned that Lord Shiva went to the Himalayas after consuming the poison, to save the world. Lord Shiva, who swallowed the poison, went to sleep in Gosaikunda located in Nepal, and reduced the effect of the poison.

    BolBum and the Kanwars of Shrawan
    Throughout this month, the Kanvars reach the Shivasthali of their choice, without even wearing sandals on their feet until the water recedes. This religious group's journey and pilgrimage are called Kanvar or the Bolbom. Bombom pilgrim travels in their specific attire, every pilgrim wears yellow clothes as this is a favorite color of Lord Shiva. The Sun changes the sign of Cancer from Gemini today. Cancer Solstice is also called Shrawan solstice or Saune solstice. The month of Shravan is the holy month of the followers of the Vedic Sanatan Hindu religion and every Monday of this month has a special and exclusive significance. Clouds roar in this month, welcoming all of us in this super romantic month of the year, welcome to Shrawaan.

    Luto Falne din
    Today is also considered as luto falne di, let me deliver a precise focus on this prospect. As the Sun is in Cancer during the month of Shravan, the heat is extreme and it is constantly raining, so people are more likely to get drenched in the water when moving around. This is not an indoor month, irrigation and plantation are done underneath the open sky where people have to play with mud, water, and natural integrals.

    Therefore, the effect of heat and rain during the rainy months, and skin and skin-related diseases such as rashes, herpes, scabies, or sores are very likely to occur. In this context, Saune Sankranti is also considered a day of curing or eliminating scabies or luto. People take a dip in rivers and apply medicinal soils to the body and medicinal herbs to eliminate scabies or probable skin diseases. May this day deliver healthy skin and a pure heart, may you smile and chant Lord Shiva.

    Sombare Aunshi

    Sombare Aunshi , Monday no moon night

    Sombare Aunshi has a specific significance in Nepal, this dates back to January 2, 1990, when an earthquake of 8.4 Richter scale struck Nepal. This day was Monday no moon day or Monday Aaunshi. And that Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Rahu were in the same zodiac sign.

    Even today is Monday and its Aunshi. The day that falls on a no moon on Monday is called a Monday Aunshi. According to our calendar, one Monday falls every seven days and one no moon day falls every month. Even today is Monday. After the earthquake, Aunshi was seen on Monday with terror and fear, but not so, the greatness and importance of Aunshi on Monday has been inseparable and unbroken for centuries.

    But the coincidence of Mondays and no moon day is only occasional that it happens just once a twice a year. This festival is considered auspicious for bathing or giving alms. Devotees from far and wide visit various pilgrimage stalls only for bathing.

    According to Hindus, it takes a great coincidence or fortune to get the date of today's "Monday Aunshi". It is said that even the characters of the Mahabharata in their lifetime could not get the date of Aunshi on this day i.e. Monday.

    Increasing numbers of Sombare aaunshi
    In mythological times, the number of no moon day on Monday was very low, but with the onset of the Kali Yuga, the number of Monday Aaunshi began to increase on earth. It is said that such Aaunshi occurs to give devotees more opportunities for salvation and humanitarian activities. So what is your plan for this Monday Aaunshi?

    According to Hindu scriptures, it is said that one can attain virtue by bathing and meditating in silence on this day. Monday is the day of the moon. The moon is the symbol of the mind and the sun is the symbol of the brain. Monday is also considered as Shivaji's day and today is dedicated to Lord Shivaji.
