Hanuman Jayanti Vrata/Baisakh Snan Praarambha/International Day of Sport for Development and Peace/SEE 2079-Compulsory Social Studies

Remembering the living Lord Hanuman, Hamuman Jayanti
Hanuman is a mysterious character, mysterious and mischievous in several aspects. A favorite character of children with numerous activities cited in Ramayana, Hanuman often comes in mind when we think of devotion, power, innocence, and war. Hanuman Chalisa "Widely recited religious book" is a default book, widely referred and carried out by the majority of Hindu Sanatana followers worldwide.

He crossed mountains, flew towards the sky to eat the sun, thinking it to be a mango, opened his own chest to prove mother Sita of his loyalty, he defeated "Rahu" a malefic planet which stopped Hanuman on his pursuit of consuming sun, Hanuman manifests courage and protection. Hanuman is mentioned in Mahabharata, Puranas and also in some Jain texts. Hanuman Jayanti is commemorated to celebrate the birthday of Hanuman ji, the monkey god.

Different aspects and contributions of Hamuna are remembered and worshiped on Hanuman Jayanti. I begin with an ancient saying derived from Ramcharitramanas of Tulsidas, where he crafts stating that "If you want lord Rama to dismiss all your guilt and sorrows, you can only reach to Lord Rama through Hanuman." Today is the perfect day for this, Chaitra is an important month when a lot of spiritual and religious discourses happen around the majority of Hindu Sanatana temples. Hanuman's unyielding devotion to Lord Rama and his selfless devotion to god power have always been an example to this mankind. Hanuman is one among the biggest embodiment of Karma Yogi (Yogi whose meditation and devotion are reflected from hard work, service, and sacrifice.) Hanuman is a living god, his existence is beyond the cycle of life and death.

Hanuman said "I am a humble messenger of Sri Rama. I have come here to serve Rama, to do His work. By the command of Lord Rama, I have come here. I am fearless by the Grace of Lord Rama. I am not afraid of death. I welcome it if it comes while serving Lord Rama."

In return for his unconditional love, Lord Rama granted him everlasting life. He promised that he would be worshipped alongside Rama and that his idol would be placed next to his.

Hanuman has the ability to swim seven oceans in a single blow, seize clouds, move mountains, break clouds and fly as swiftly as bird Garuda, set fire to the tail and burn down entire Lanka. He even sent back Yamaraj (God of Death) when Yamaraj arrived to mark Rama's death however, ascetics have cursed Hanuman for forgetting his own power.

When asked to bid farewell to Rama after the war with Ravana, Hanuman desired to stay in this planet. Lord Rama had given the gift of Hanuman's wish to remain in the earth till Ram's name goes on in the world.

Hanuman Jayanti can be celebrated and commemorated in a congregation or also individually, wishes of a meaningful Hanuman Jayanti. May this Chatra Shukla poornima delivers you the gravity of Hauman's power manifestation, may we all get rid of our troubles and worries and gain strength to overcome every difficulties with ease.

Baisakh Snan starts

न माधवसमो मासों न कृतेन युगं समम्।
न च वेदसमं शास्त्रं न तीर्थं गंगया समम्।।
स्कंदपुराण, वै वै मा. 2/1

That is, there is no month like Vaishakh, no age like Satya Yuga, no scripture like Veda, and no pilgrimage like Gangaji. Baisakhi bath has started from Chaitra Purnima. Welcome and good luck to all who go on pilgrimage, go to the pool, take a holy bath and remember God.

The last day of Shukla Paksha is the full moon day. On this tithi, the moon is the brightest and magnificent. It is believed that fasting on this day brings immense lunar grace to health, prosperity, and peace. On the full moon day, Lord Shiva and Vishnu are especially worshiped. Special worship to Lord Vishnu is done in the form of Satya Narayan Puja. Satya Narayan Puja is usually performed whenever possible, although the fruits of this puja performed on the day of the full moon are very abundant.

From a scientific point of view, it is said that gravity will have a great effect on the earth on the day of the full moon and self-purification will be done by fasting on this day and remembering the name of God. By fasting on this day, the metabolic process will be strengthened, gastric problems will be solved and positive energy will increase in the body.

This day is fasted from sunrise in the morning to moonrise in the evening. Some people observe this fast without drinking water, while others observe this fast by eating only one meal and eating no salt (alino) food. In the evening, after the moonrise, the fast ends with the sighting of the moon. Happy Jestha Shukla Purnima to everyone this year.

Let there be an end to the flood and landslide, let there be the protection of both religion and the followers of religion.
