Facts on human blood
There are eight types of human blood groups and blood from matching groups according to their blood type is transfused into them. In this way, before donating blood, the blood of the donors is checked to see if there is an infection. In this way, donors are also informed about their medical history and health.

Generally, there is a difference of 3 months between donating blood once and donating blood again. While talking about blood donation, we may be wondering what it takes to donate blood, but some of us may already know these things. The minimum body weight for donating blood is 50 Kgs, a minimum of 18 years, and a maximum of 60 years. Blood donor boundaries may vary by country.

An ultimate donation
Blood donation is the ultimate donation. Blood is an indispensable substance in the body of every human being, delivering the necessary things to every tissue, balancing the body temperature, and protecting our vitality, blood is life.

Because we donate blood, a parent gets his child back, a family gets the life of a loved one, and society does not have to lose a member prematurely. Donating blood does not harm our bodies and provides a measure of freshness and self-satisfaction. There is no need to be a doctor to save someone's life, blood donors are God's idols. It is possible to save millions of lives every year by donating blood. Blood donation is even more important during epidemics, wars, and accidents. Even during corona infection, plasma therapy and many other blood donations have made life easier for patients.

In Nepal too, the number of voluntary organizations and networks for blood donation has been increasing in recent times. Today, Hamro Patro also wants to commemorate all those organizations and networks, Youth for Blood, Blood Pal, Healthy Citizen Nepal, Red Cross, and many other organizations and networks to facilitate blood donation and spread public awareness, this is commendable.Some of us are afraid to donate blood because we are scared to be stabbed with a needle, which is very ridiculous. Blood donation is a very simple and common thing, what could be more proud than being able to donate life?

If you need blood to save the life of your brother or sister or family member, would you refrain from donating blood? Similarly, many brothers and sisters need blood, blood donors are life donors, don't hesitate to donate blood. All must unite to make Nepal free from blood shortage. Leaving a question to all of us who are above 18 years? Have you donated blood? Jayhoss

Gorakhkali Puja

Nepal and Gorakhkali vagwati- historical significance
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 is the reason 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 there are also connected.The Gorkha temple of Mrigasthali is in a state of neglect due to lack of protection and management.

In the Gorkha Darbar area is the shrine of Gorakhkali Devi. This Peetha is considered as 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)
Gorakh message
Guru Gorakhnath says - "The journey of the temples and shrines is Suno Yatra" meaning the pilgrimage of the temples etc. are spiritually meaningless, equal to zero, soulless – unless we are able to 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 temple but can't make the house a temple! Worshiping the deity of the temple but unable to awaken 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 Khadi language (Prakrit language, folk language, rural language). Glory be to Baba Gorakhnath and Gorakhkali Bhagwati forever.
Infinite love of Gorakhkali Puja.
