Dahi chiura Khane Din/ Rashtriya Dhan Diwas/Gorakhkali Puja

Dahi Chiura Khane Din / National Paddy Day Special Audio

Background of National Dhan diwas
National Paddy Day / Dhan Diwas has been formally celebrated in Nepal since 2061 BS. But for centuries, it has been the custom to celebrate the 15th of Asar as a time of eating Dahi chura, planting paddy and celebration remained. This year, it is being celebrated all over Nepal as the 19th Paddy Day. This day has a special significance in keeping the morale of the farmers high and reflecting on the problems and issues of the agricultural profession.

This month of planting paddy and growing maximum by consuming minimum is often said as "Mano Khayera Muri Ubjaune", this month is special for agricultural work. The clouds are now fully matured, raindrops pouring and accumulating in streams, this month is a milestone for the food sovereignty of Nepal.

For this reason too, the 15th of Asar is considered as the National Paddy Day.
As much as possible, let's play with the rain, rice plants, and mud again today. The lifestyle of the Nepali environment is very close to nature and soil. Food of the farmers are delivered in the fields, the array of colorful slippers on the field signifies the synergy of Asar.

The plantation "Ropai" of Terai
In the Terai, the food taken to the farmers in this way is called jalkhai. Generally, it is customary to take thick bread of wheat flour and salt, oil, chilly pickle, etc. in the jalkhai. In the Terai, if the owner of the farm comes to the field to plant paddy himself, it is customary for all the farmers to chase away the landlord by spreading mud.

The month of Ashadh has not only social and economic but also literary significance. Various exciting and popular songs have been written and sung in the periphery of Ashadh for generations, such as in the field of planting paddy in the month of Ashadh/ Asar. Since such songs are sung while planting paddy, they are sung simply and slowly, so that the working farmers can forget their fatigue and work for a long time. Ashadhe Pandhra, which is one of such plantations, is a festival that kills fatigue during a busy time. Ashadhe Pandhra is also called as Dahichura Eating Day (Yogurt and Beaten rice) because of the specialties made by Dahi Chura, Mango, and other dishes.

May the rain of hope be good for planting paddy, may the water of that rain also alleviate our sorrows, and may we sow love and harmony with each other along with the seed of paddy, may love to grow.

Let the roof of the house be filled with water, let the message of hope and love flow, let the leaking roofs be avoided, and let your
dreams be awakened.

Do try Dahi Chiura today, best wishes

Gorakhkali Puja

Baba Gorakh and Gorakhkali Vagwati are very important in Nepali history. The meeting between Prithvi Narayan Shah and Baba Gorakh, the vomit that fell on the feet of Prithvi Narayan Shah, and the auspiciousness given by Baba Gorakh to Prithvi Narayan Shah that there will be victory wherever he bows are the reasons for the energy and strength of Nepal's unification.The glory of Gorakhnath Baba, a unique devotee of Baba Machindranath, is special in the Sanatan community of Nepal, India, and all over the world.

Gorkha, the district of origin of Shah dynasty kings adjacent to the name of Baba Gorakh, and Gorakhkali temple have special importance in the former royal family of Nepal. It should be remembered that in the history of Baba Gorakh, the Gorakh palace and dynasty, as well as the Gorakh temple in Pashupati's mrigasthali forest and Baba's 15-year meditation are also connected.The Gorkha temple of Mrigasthali is in a state of neglect due to a lack of protection and management.

In the Gorkha Darbar area is the shrine of Gorakhkali Devi. This peetha is considered the Kool Devi of the Shah Dynasty. It is customary to worship Gorkhali on Paush Krishna Ashtami. Today, a special puja is performed at the Gorakhkali temple in Gorkha.

It has been a tradition for hundreds of years to bring Jamara to Kathmandu on Phulpati day in this Gorakhkali temple. In the post-republic years, such customs have not been given much attention, although the importance of Baba Gorakh and Gorakhkali Devi in the protection of Nepalese land has been incomparable.Nepali people need more blessings of Baba Gorakh and Gorakhkali Devi to protect cows.

Gorakh Sandesh (Message)
Guru Gorakhnath says - "The journey of the temples and shrines is Suno Yatra" meaning the pilgrimages of the temples etc. is spiritually meaningless, equal to zero, soulless, unless we can spread love to every being in this cosmos.

देवल जात्रा सुंनि जात्रा, तीरथ जात्रा पाणीं ।
अतीत जात्रा सुफल जात्रा, बोलै अमृत वाणी ।।

Yes, the role of temples is very important in terms of religion and culture, but if there is a pilgrimage but there is no faith, there is no emotion and there is no devotion, then what is the use of just doing a "deval pilgrimage"? Do not worship people who worship idols! Run to the temple, but can't make the house a temple! Worshiping the deity of the temple but unable to awaken the divinity in himself! Offering fruit, offerings, etc. to the deity made of stone in a small area and complex, but not accepting that the divinity resides in every human, animal, and bird! And unable to serve! Seeing such religious pretentiousness, Guru Gorakhnath made a sharp satire in the Khadi language (Prakrit language, folk language, rural language). Glory be to Baba Gorakhnath and Gorakhkali Bhagwati forever.

Infinite love for Gorakhkali Puja.
