Vaman dwadashi Brata/International Day For The Elimination Of Neuclear Weapons

Vaman Pujan Mantra:
देवेश्वराय देवश्य, देव संभूति कारिणे। प्रभावे सर्व देवानां वामनाय नमो नमः।।

Those who worship Lord Vamana with devotion, Lord Vamana frees them from all miseries just as he freed the king Bali from the distress. Performing puja according to the method leads to happiness, joy and desired results.

Vamana Avatar
Vamana Jayanti is celebrated to commemorate the incarnation day of Lord Vishnu as Vamana. Vamana Jayanti is celebrated on the Dwadashi date of Bhadrapad Shukla Paksha. According to the Bhagavata Purana, Vamana was the fifth incarnation of Lord Vishnu out of the Dashavatara and the first incarnation in the Treta Yuga.

The first four avatars of Lord Vishnu were in animal form, which was Matsya avatar, Kurma avatar, Varaha avatar, and Narasimha avatar respectively. After this Vamana was the first incarnation in human form. Vamana Dev was born as the son of Rishi Mata Aditi and Kashyapa on the Shukla Paksha Dwadashi of the month of Bhadrapad in Abhijit Muhurta when Shravan Nakshatra was in vogue.

Vamana Dwadashi Katha
Lord Vishnu incarnated Vamana to restore Indra Dev's authority over the heavenly world. King Bali, the supreme devotee and very powerful monster of Lord Vishnu, defeated Indra Dev and established his suzerainty over heaven. Despite being an ardent devotee of Lord Vishnu and the Danavir king, Bali was a cruel and arrogant demon. Bali used to abuse his power to intimidate and threaten the gods and Brahmins. The extremely mighty and invincible sacrifice had become the master of heaven, land, and hell.

After losing his authority from heaven, Indra Dev along with other gods approached Lord Vishnu and pleaded for help, stating his suffering. Lord Vishnu assured Indra Dev that he would be born as a Vamana avatar from the womb of Mata Aditi to get the three worlds liberated from the atrocities of sacrifice.

Meaningful wishes.

International Day Against Nuclear Tests

Global nuclear weapon test profile
Since nuclear weapons testing began on 16 July 1945, over 2,000 have taken place. In the early days of nuclear testing little consideration was given to its devastating effects on human life, let alone the dangers of nuclear fallout from atmospheric tests. Hindsight and history have shown us the terrifying and tragic effects of nuclear weapons testing, especially when controlled conditions go awry, and in light of the far more powerful and destructive nuclear weapons that exist today.

On 2 December 2009, the 64th session of the United Nations General Assembly declared 29 August the International Day against Nuclear Tests by unanimously adopting resolution 64/35.

UN Resolution 64/35
The resolution calls for increasing awareness and education “about the effects of nuclear weapon test explosions or any other nuclear explosions and the need for their cessation as one of the means of achieving the goal of a nuclear-weapon-free world.” The resolution was initiated by the Republic of Kazakhstan, together with a large number of sponsors and cosponsors to commemorate the closure of the Semipalatinsk Nuclear Test site on 29 August 1991.

The world needs peace!
From the equator to the poles on both sides, from the Pacific Ocean to the Dead Sea, from Mount Everest to the Sahara Desert, we are all waiting for the time when the slogans of peace and brotherhood will resound.
