Mahalakshmi Mahavrata commences today with, simplicity and tenderness of the goddess of wealth and prosperity.

क्षीरोदार्णवसम्भूता लक्ष्मीश्चन्द्र सहोदरा।
व्रतोनानेत सन्तुष्टा भवताद्विष्णुबल्लभा।।

Lakshmi who appeared in the Ksheersagar, Mother who is equally bright in the moon, and Bishnu Ballava, be satisfied with this vow I have made.

Holy 16 days of Mahalakshmi Vrata
Today, Shukla Ashtami of Bhadrapad, i.e. for the next 16 days, Mahalakshmi's Vrata series is being celebrated. 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 worships 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.

Best wishes!

World Suicide Prevention Day



An estimated 703,000 people a year take their life around the world. For every suicide, there are likely 20 other people making a suicide attempt and many more have serious thoughts of suicide. Millions of people suffer intense grief or are otherwise profoundly impacted by suicidal behaviours.Each suicidal death is a public health concern with a profound impact on those around them. By raising awareness, reducing the stigma around suicide, and encouraging well-informed action, we can reduce instances of suicide around the world.

Background
World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) was established in 2003 by the International Association for Suicide Prevention in conjunction with the World Health Organization (WHO). The 10th of September each year focuses attention on the issue, reduces stigma and raises awareness among organizations, government, and the public, giving a singular message that suicide can be prevented.

By creating hope through action, we can signal to people experiencing suicidal thoughts that there is hope and that we care and want to support them. It also suggests that our actions, no matter how big or small, may provide hope to those who are struggling. Lastly, it highlights the importance of setting suicide prevention as a priority public health agenda by countries, particularly where access to mental health services and availability of evidence-based interventions are already low. Building on this theme and spreading this message over the three years, a world can be envisioned where suicides are not so prevalent.
