Parshuram Jayanti/World Earth Day

Who is Lord Parshuram?
Hindu mythology defines Lord Parshuram as the sixth avatar of Vishnu upon this planet. Parshuram Jayanti is commemorated to honor the birth anniversary of Lord Parshuram. Lord Parshuram was born in the Tritiya tithi of Baisakh Shukla paksha, he was the son of Raja Prasenjit's daughter Renuka and Bhrigu's dynasty's Jamadagni. Parshuram is known for his indisputable devotion towards lord Shiva, Parashurama is also recognized for his immense knowledge and artillery making skills.

According to legends, he fought big wars 21 times in favor of the truth to establish righteousness. Even before Lord Rama arrived on the planet, immortal Parshuram arrived on this planet as an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Because immortal parshuram was born in this tithi, this Tritiya tithi is also called "Chiranjivi Tithi", Chiranjivi translates immortal. A true follower of patriarchy, Parshuram is the only ancient character who is beyond the circle of life and death according to Srimad Bhagwat Geeta. Parshuram is the engineer of ancient times, the architect of the artistic and physical infrastructure.

All the ancient villages and towns of the Indian subcontinent are built according to his plan and art.

The present-day remains of the ancient city of Dwarika found in the middle of the sea during excavations, and its relevant and scientific structure also explains Parashuram's contribution to scientific development since ancient times. By the grace of this immortal Parashuram, May truth and art skills are firmly developed in the lives of all of us, best wishes to all.

World Earth Day

Background of World Earth day 2023:
Earth is our basis, the importance of this universal earth, which is considered as the mother by Sanatan Dharma, is celebrated all over the world on April 22 every year.

The slogan of World Earth Day 2023 is "Invest in our planet".
This day is celebrated as the beginning of modern environmental programs and consciousness in the 1970s. In 2009, the 63rd General Assembly of the United Nations decided to observe April 22 as World Earth Day. On April 22, 1970, the United States celebrated this day for the first time. The day was marked as an environmental education program led by US Senator Gerald Nelson. The Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1992, provided much-needed support for the need for Earth Day.

Following the decision of the United Nations, this day is now celebrated with grandeur in more than 192 countries. April 22 is the northern hemisphere's spring season, and the southern hemisphere's autumn season, these differences of the mother earth are also represented by April 22.

Launched in 1970, this day enters its 52nd year in 2023. By then, the world community is committed to fulfilling its ambitious plan for clean and green earth by reducing pollution.

Concerns on the rising global temperature
Rising global temperatures are another major challenge in the 20th century. Earth's temperature is rising at a rate of zero point 18 degrees Celsius every year. Due to which the ice peaks at the North Pole of the Earth are melting. Incidents of natural disasters, such as ozone depletion, terrifying storms, and tsunamis, are increasing. Man himself is responsible for all these things and no one else. April 22nd is the day to look back on human steps and rectify collectively for forthcoming years.

Even the highest laboratories that can create and build large airplanes and atomic bombs cannot make a pinch of soil, soil is nature, the wind is nature's tendency and water is life. Today, workshops and other events around the world are being held in more than 193 countries to discuss the protection, utilization, and proper use of all these things. Unlike other years, the past two years (2021 and 2022) are more focused on virtual events because of infection risk.

Various public awareness programs are being conducted in Nepal on the occasion of Earth Day. Social organizations working in the field of environment and environment protection in Nepal have been conducting various programs on the occasion of Earth Day. Government officials show solidarity by attending such events.

On Earth Day, students from various colleges and schools organize awareness rallies against the growing pollution on Earth. In some countries, Earth Day is celebrated as a week-long event from April 16 to 22.

Despite technology and business, knowledge of planting trees, growing greenery, cycling, and using renewable energy as much as possible, less use of plastic, and knowledge of environmental protection are needed today. Nature is paramount, its protection is our duty. Happy Earth Day to the world May the love of the earth grows from the summit of Mount Everest to the surface of the Dead Sea.
