Bala Chaturdashi Barta/ Shatbij Chharne Din Special Audio

Bala Chaturdashi Barta, Shatbij charne din
Today, Mangsir Krishna Chartudashi or Bala Chartudashi and today is considered as a very important day for the salvation journey of the deceased members of family and society.

What happens on Bala Chaturdashi ?
Today, various Shakti Peeths and Triveni Dhams in Nepal and India are crowded with pilgrims scattering Shatbij. Shatavbij means seven types of grains to be sown in religious forests such as Kailash Danda, Shleshmantak forest, and other forests for ancestral salvation.

Sowing Shatbij
To sow the Shatbij, one day before Chartudashi, that is, on the day of Triodashi, it is customary to stay awake at night, light the lamp, and chant hymns without blinking one's eyes. It is believed that the seeds scattered in the world will be germinated in another world of the deceased ancestors and they will never go hungry due to these reasons.

Special fairs are held at Pashupatinath of Kathmandu and surrounding Kirateshwar, Gaurighat, Guheshwari, coast of Aryaghat, Shleshamantak forest including Chatara, Barahkshetra of Eastern Nepal, Setiveni Dham of Parbat district, Chakreshwar temple of Gulmi Santipur, Devghat Dham of Nawalparasi, Kshireshwar of Dhanusha and Shivalayas and Triveni Dhams. However, the prevalence of COVID might have adverse impacts upon these pilgrimages.
The most interesting context today is related to the idol of Ganesha next to the Pashupati Vishwarupa temple. The idol of Ganesha is considered as a symbol of the deaf ear and therefore the devotees try to make the idol hear by shouting, yelling, and shaking loudly.

Happy Bala Chartudashi to all of us, may the departed souls have eternal peace, and may our friendship be maintained. Until then, use Hamro Patro, the most downloaded mobile application in Nepal and the most liked by Nepalis.

International Mountain day

पखेरुमा जन्मे
टाकुरमा खेल्ने
म झुक्दै झुक्ने नेपालको छोरो

For centuries, the mountain has been revered in the Nepali environment and way of life. On this year's World Mountain Day, best wishes to the world from Nepal, the capital of the mountains.


Today, December 11, the world has been celebrating Mountain Day in recognition of the high mountains and its significant contribution to natural life.

Global talk of Nepali mountains
Nepali mountains and mountaineers are being talked about all over the world. Today, mountaineer Nirmal Purja, his record and his series of 14 peaks on Netflix are the talk of the world. This is followed by another series "Aftershock" which depicts the pain and social construct of Nepali mountain society and people focusing on the earthquake.

International Mountain Day 2023 theme

Restoring mountain ecosystems is the theme of this year's International Mountain Day on 11 December.

Nepal and mountains
We Nepalis are known as the citizens of the country of Mount Everest. 43% of the total land area of ​​the country is covered by hills, of which 15% of the total land area is occupied by mountainous areas. In this sense, we are the main focus of World Mountain Day and we have a great responsibility for the changing colors, temperatures, and the life cycle of the entire animal kingdom. Today, the earth is being affected by changing global temperatures, the snow-capped glaciers of the past are constantly turning to the black stone, the places where snowfalls are constantly raining, and various vegetation is appearing in such places.

About 1 billion people worldwide live in the glaciers of these mountains. They rely on the mountains for food, fuel, and employment, but these gigantic mountains are at risk for several reasons, including climate change, soil erosion, and indiscriminate use of natural resources. Today, all the human beings in the world seem to be united for the protection and support of the mountains by improving their habits.

Let's all engage in homework including safe living and protection of mountainous areas, Happy World Mountain Day to all!
