    Mahalakshmi Barta Samaapti | World Smile Day | Ashtami Shraddha

    Mahalakshmi Barta Samaapti
    Mahalakshmi Mahavrata concludes today with, simplicity and tenderness of the goddess of wealth and prosperity.

    Today, Krishna Saptami of Asoj, i.e. 16 days of Mahalakshmi's Vrata series is being concluded today. Welcome to this year's 16-day holy series of Mahalakshmi Vrat. In these 16 days, Goddess Mahalakshmi, the goddess of wealth and auspiciousness, is worshiped. Goddess Mahalakshmi appeared during the Samundra Manthan process from Ksheer Ocean (Ksheer Sagar), she is married to Lord Vishnu or Sri Hari. Every now and then metal coins fall from the palm of the hand of Goddess Lakshmi seated on the lotus flower. If you look at these images, the goddess of wealth is an idol of tender heart and an easy presence.

    The gross world pursuing wealth needs to learn a lot from Mother Lakshmi's simplicity and tenderness. In these 16 days, the devotee who worshipped Goddess Lakshmi faithfully attains wealth and prosperity. The longevity of wealth and prosperity depends on human service and good deeds. Mother Lakshmi is largely pleased with human service and humanitarian work.

    Milk, sandalwood, and dairy products are used to worship Goddess Lakshmi, holding a garland of lotus seeds and chanting Goddess Lakshmi's following mantra is super beneficial.

    The following are the Sanskrit texts and simple Nepali meaning of Mahalakshmi Mantra only available in Hamro Patro, Nepal's most downloaded mobile application.

    करिष्यकहं महालक्ष्मि व्रतमें त्वत्परायणा ।
    तदविघ्नेन में यातु समप्तिं स्वत्प्रसादतस् ।।

    That is to say, O Goddess, I will be faithful to this Mahavrat here and will be faithful to it.

    May the success of this fast be good for all, and May Mother Lakshmi live in the homes of every daily wages worker.

    World smile day

    World Smile Day is celebrated on the first Friday in October each year. In 2023, World Smile Day will fall on October 6th. This day is dedicated to promoting acts of kindness and spreading smiles around the world. The idea behind World Smile Day is to encourage people to do something nice for someone else and make them smile, whether it's through a kind gesture, a compliment, or a small act of charity.

    Artistic representation of smiles:
    Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts, is credited with creating the iconic smiley face symbol in 1963. In 1999, he declared the first Friday in October as World Smile Day, and it has been celebrated annually ever since.

    On World Smile Day, people are encouraged to participate in activities that bring joy to others and foster goodwill. It's a day to remember the power of a simple smile and how it can brighten someone's day. Many individuals and organizations use this occasion to engage in philanthropic activities and spread positivity.

    Whether it's through random acts of kindness, volunteering, or simply sharing a smile with those around you, World Smile Day serves as a reminder of the importance of kindness and the positive impact it can have on the world.

    Theme 2023:
    "Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile"!

    Best wishes, keep smiling.
    Sorha Shradhha: Asthami Shradhha

    Pitri Gayatri Mantra:
    देवताभ्यः पितृभ्यश्च महायोगिभ्यः एव च। नमः स्वाहायै स्वधायै नित्यमेव नमोनमः।।

    It means salutations to the gods, pitras, great yogis, svaha and svadha all the time.

    Pitri, Baitarni and Salvation
    With the commencement of the Sorha Saddha may all the godlike Pitri in the Pitri realm between heaven and earth obtain salvation, may all the Pitri cross the Baitarni River, and may the ancestral love be maintained.

    May the blessings of the ancestors be maintained, May goodness and good wishes are maintained, and we are the remnants of the ancestors in today's form, aren't we?

    Tarpan, Diyo Puja, Vishwedeva Brahman, and other pujas can be performed before the appointed time. There is a belief that if the Pinda is not donated at this time, the Pitris will not get it. Sanatana Philosophy largely acknowledges the importance of Pitri in the existence of life and the universe.

    In Vedic Sanatan Sanskrit, Pitrikarma i.e. shraddha is usually performed twice, regular shraddha is performed on the tithi of death and another shraddha is performed during the period of Sorha shraddhas. May peace and happiness prevail in every family with the commencement of this year's Sorha Shraddha Wishing for the salvation of the Pitri who passed away on the asthami Shraddha date.

    Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
    Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year.
