Van Mohtasa or tree plantation Factually, a forest week inception From 20th to 27th July 1947 As national tree plantation As a sacred mission Wherein trees were planted in great number to realize the vision Of fructifying the operation of tree plantation.
Literally Van Mohtasav means tree plantation As a festival of highest significance In fact a sacred obligation of all humans The need of which is felt because of critical position Owing to disafforestation Will have on the climate change And the adverse impact of environment around Turning lush green tree covers Into deserts – putting the ecology in huge danger With rains so sparse at some places A dry spell of highest order Just parching the earth crust But there are too much of rains in many of the places Excessive rains without expectation resulting in deluges Resulting in deaths and destruction Of highest proportion Destroying standing crops Including destruction of men and materials As has been happening Not merely in Indian states But also in other countries too And making the lives of people intricate Soaring the atmospheric temperatures due to dry spell Due to heat-waves of highest order Consequence of which is forest fires In many countries round the globe Due to which glaciers have been melting Thus changing the Eco-system in general Making the lives of general masses unsustainable Then who is not aware About the tsunamis and strong storm so destructive In different parts of the world.
Cure for all the woes Is planting of trees in great number Including reduction of pollution We should make the Van Mohatasav a tradition Which started in 1950 as an activity as national week Encouraging the general population Not merely tree plantation But also giving protection To the plants already planted Giving Van Mohatasav special significance Since it coincides with onset of monsoon season To plant more trees, in fact in great number Which in future Will create forest cover Which will prove useful for shade, shelter for birds And other living beings Source of food, fuel, households, furniture and many other usages. It will reduce droughts Prevent soil erosion Maintain the fertility of land. Unfortunately, trees are being cut For industrialization and urbanization Which though a necessity but should be done with absolute discretion.
Message should go to one and all That Van Mohatasav is a crying need of time And for this festival to be effective and beneficial for all It is necessary to plant more trees And afford protection to ensure protection to the trees so planted Useful not merely for current generation But also for the survival of our next generations May our Omnipotent and Omniscient Come to our succour In securing our future So Van Mahotasav should be taken as a National Duty To put an indelible stamp of security!
Shravan month (Maas) is the fifth month of Hindu Calendar which is dedicated to Lord Shiva wherein we pray for His bounties. He is known to as The Destroyer and subsequently to be recreated. In the hierarchy of Trinity – Lord Vishnu (Responsible for evolution which is created), Lord Mahesh (The destroyer for recreation) and Lord Brahma (The creator)
The Lord Shiva creates, protects and changes the universe for the benefit of His creations. Goddess Parvati is the partner of Lord Shiva. She is the SHAKTI (Nature). She is SHIV SHAKTI and together they are temd as ARDHNIRASHWARA.Therefore, it would not be wrong to infer both SHIVA and SHAKTI as the combined force who together come to the succour of their devotees.
Lord Shivaa is the One who is pleased easily and blesses his devotees. He could be pleased with simple bel leave. On this month, the people worship Lord Shiva for the entire month besides observing fast too. Various rituals like Holy Havan too is performed to please Him and get His blessings. In fact, His benevolencce and compassionate nature is known to everybody and that is why He is also termed as the BHOLE JI too.
Lord Shiva is the Param Atma (SUPER SOUL) of the universe. He is described as most fearful and most benevolent too. He is the simple Yogi who lives a ascetic life on Mount Kailash with His consort Parvati and his two children Lord Ganesha and Kartikaya. In his ascetic form He is described as the Bhola Ji (Very simple) and in His destructive nature He is responsible for killing the most ferocious demons. He is known as Adi Yogi Shiva. He remains in Yoga Mudra or meditative trace; seems detached from the outer world but is alive to everything which is happening around the world.
One of the best attributes of Lord Shiva are some of the icons like serpent around His neck, the crescent on the head, the holy river Ganga flowing from his hair which are matted. Then the third eye on his forehead is indicative of the depiction of anger. The Trident or trishula is his weapon of destruction and the drumaru or drum which indicates that He is music loving. Furthermore He is worshipped in the aniconic form of Longam.
It has been observed that Samundra Manthan or churning of the seas was the momentous event which was done by the Gods and the demons with a pupose of extracting some most precious things of immense utility amongs which was nectar. This was partly to showcase the superiority of Gods over Demons and also to obtain most important things which were to come out of the churning of the sea.
This month holds significance since this churning exercise was done in the month of SHRAVAN MAAS.
This was also done to please the Goddess Lakshmi – the Goddess of Wellness and fortune.
Chuurning was also done to get nectar as a reward from churning of sea.
Initially, the Gods and Demons had agreed to share the nectar amongst each other.
The sea chrning was done by Snake Vasuki (which adores Lord Shiva’s neck) while Sumeru Parvat was the used on which Vasuki was fastened to help churning by the Gods and the Demons.
After churning there came 14 types of things of immense utility. These included most precious stones
Halahal (the most virulent poison). Both the Gods and Demons did not know how to get rid of the poison since it could destroy every living being on the earth.
Here too Lord Shiva came to the succour of both the Gods and the Demons. He took hold of the poison pot containing dangerous poison and did not drink this dangerous poison but kept it in his throat which became blue due to which Lord Shiva too is termed as Neelkanth.
By so doing, Lord Shiva delivered the world off the sure destruction with the Halahal.
This is the reason why we call Him as the saviour of the living world of ours.
In essence, this is the reason why we consider this month as the most auspicious one since our LORD SHIVA saved the living world from sure death in the month of SHRAVAN MAAS.
In order to control the bad effect of poison, he had to wear crescent moon for its cool effect on His head along with holy water of Ganges in order to cool in order to reduce the effect of poison. All these events showcases to us all that for saving the living world from sure death He could even take any step.
The CHURNING OF SEA took place in the month of Shravan and particularly on Shravan Shukrawar (Friday) and Shaniwar (Saturday), these are considered as the most auspicious. Today being the first Monday of this most significant event, we consider this month as the most important for the entire humanity.
As Monday is most auspicious day, the devouts keep fast for keeping the body and mind pure besides worshipping the Lord Shiva for getting his bountiful blessings. On this day, the newly married girls perform Mangala Gauri Vrata on Tuesdays during this month. The chanting of OM NAMON SHIVAYE with sincerity will earn us His blessings for us. Even repeatedly chanting of AUM or OM will be of immense value for the devotees. Therefore, this month is construed as the most auspicious of all the months put together since our it is the month on which our BHOLA JI blesses His devotees. Even Lord Vishnu too is worshipped in this month with the Mantra OM NAMON BHAGWATE VASU DEVAYE NAMON; so much is the importance of this month.

GURU PURNIMA : A RESPECTFUL HOMAGE TO OUR GURU/ PREACHER/TEACHER
Guru Purnima or Poornima which is a sacred day and has special significance since it is celebrated to remember our Guru who changes our destinies by imparting ighteous knowledge. It is celebrated on the occasion of Poornima (when the moon is full). This day is commemorated on the name of our most revered one; our Guru or the Master who helps us acquire knowledge by removing ignorance. He inculcates in us the traits of forbearance, patience, enlightenment besides teaches us how best to remain balanced in any situation and condition. These traits are beneficial for us when we are facing the onslaught of COVID19 pandemic. It is the time when many of us are facing jobs or suffering business losses. It is now that we require the qualities of patience and tolerance since loss of our dear ones is irreplaceable while loss in business could be recompensated as time passes. Here our Guru’s insightful knowledge can deliver us from the difficult time and show us the correct path of enlightenment. We can also learn how best to transform our lives by caring and sharing what we have – i.e. to be compassionate to others and fulfill the needs of needy ones. All these positive traits can only be taught by our Guru. He is the one who is aware about our potentials and drawbacks and focuses how best to remove our weaker areas through persuations and suggestions.
Guru is the one who imparts us knowledge and through the medium of knowledge we can remove our ignorance. It is also a truth that Absolute Truth cannot be known merely through penance or contemplation. There should be a Master, the one who could understand us ins and outs and make it possible to inculcate changes in us for our holistic growth and development. It is simply because we ourselves inculcate the traits of self-awareness wholly without the active assistance of our Spiritual Guru. Even Vedic scriptures tell us about the significance of our Guru. It tells us that we should service our Guru with purity of mind, remove doubts where there are the ones and ensure happiness by the knowledge imparted by the scriptures and for this our Guru could be of immense utility. But this knowledge comes to us only when we surrender to our Guru. By so doing, we can be liberated from the drawbacks and attachments we have cultivated in our life.
Bhagwad Gita has rightly said: Learn the Truth by approaching a spiritual master – the one who assists you in enlightening us. We can inquire from him with reverence and render service unto him. Such an enlightened Saint can impart knowledge unto you because he has seen the Truth.
It is a fact that spiritual knowledge can make a world of difference. For acquiring knowledge, we have to puy in sincere work and even sacrifice our comforts. For acquiring knowhow in order to remove ignorance, we have to leave so many things to gain knowledge, the natural question that follows is, how can we obtain spiritual knowledge? Shree Krishna gives the answer in this verse. He says:
Approach a spiritual master.
Inquire from him submissively.
Render service to him as and when needed.
A true Guru or a True Master, transfers the spiritual knowledge to remove ignorance or darkness which engulfs us. It should always be remembered that spiritual knowledge cannot be obtained through mechanical teaching which we learn from formal institutions. It is obtained through changing the mindset of an individual through the sincere efforts of a Guru or a preaccher or a teacher who is knowledgeable and knows how best to impart the knowledge to the disciple in order to effect holistic growth in them. The disciplies too were disciplined and used to have respect for their Gurus. Mother is considered to be the first Guru who helps his disciples to attain necessary knowledge and gain spiritual orientation in order to know the Absolute Truth.
The significance of Guru is felt more since Lord Shiva is considered to be the first Guru (Aadi Guru). It is also important to say that His disciples were Seven Rishis of Sapta Rishis. It is also a considered fact that if we want to consider Lord Shiva as our Guru, we can perform the following:We can perform Prana Prathishta on the Shiva Linga then we offer sincere prayer to Shiva to reside in that particula LINGA after performing Abhisekha to the Linga with water and then with milk and honey.
Then we can offer Prasadam to the Linga.
Then we can offer our with sincereest prayers to Lord Shiva after requesting Him to be your Guru with a promise that you will be the best disciple to Him.
By so doing, we can consider Lord Shiva to be our TRUE GURU and follow all the good traits which are to be followed; a disciplined life, be kind and have compassion to the requirements of others, be humble to the core and follow spiritual lifestyle bereft of anger, greed, lust, bitterness, envy and other negative traits. This so doing, it is not only Lord Shiva to be our GURU. Subsequently, we can be our own GURU by following all good things in words and deeds.

Eid-Al-Adha or Eid-Ul-Adha Eid-Al-Adha Or Eid-Ul-Adha Eid-Ul-Zuha Or Bakr-Eid simply for us all Calling this auspicious day With any name Makes hardly any difference Factually, it is a festival of sacrifice The festival of giving to the needy Anything considered most costly Which one has for giving Thereby solidifying our faith in Almighty God.
Give this day by any name thee may prefer to call
The custom that started When most venerable Abraham Offered his only son named Ismail At the command of Allah Without even the slightest demur of any sort A reality check or test Which God wanted From devout Abraham And also his son Ismail Lo and behold! After actually offering Supreme sacrifice Surprise of surprises Found a slaughtered lamb!
Meaning the most benevolent God Tested the love and willpower of Abraham For Him – the benevolent One While Abraham was obeying The commandments of God Satan made attempts to prevent Abraham From scarifying his only son But he did not care to listen to satan The diverter of our attention from Him and His Commandments.
Instead obeyed the commands of Allah And left for us all A message so enduring God loves those who obey Him And are ready to sacrifice anything On His bidding May this day brings a feeling of self-sacrifice So that needs of all are met By distributing love amongst all Let’s all pray and sacrifice our ego Which divides humanity from each other
For the overall wellbeing of humankind around the world.
Thoughts on Eid-al-Adha / Eid-ul-Zuha / Bakr-Eid
Thoughts on Eid-al-Adha / Eid-ul-Zuha / Bakr-Eid – A Holiest Muslim Festival
There are auspicious days occasioned due to some renowned events connected either with religions occasions or any other events of importance or connected with events of international or national importance. This day is the day of sacrifice wherein those who have something to give, share the same with those who do not have much and showcase empathy.
Eid-al-Adha or Bakr-Eid is connected with event of religious prominence and has gives us message of giving without any expectations, a message which could change our destinies and lifestyle. A positive oriented existence with complete faith on Allah.
Eid means festival and Eid-al-Adha means Festival of Sacrifice or it is termed as Bakr-Eid meaning celebration with the sacrifice of a goat. This festival is celebrated with great solemnity and reverence across the world as a tribute to Prophet Ibrahim’s rock-solid belief in God. He willingly agreed to sacrifice his beloved son Abraham as ordained by God.
Here, Abraham’s love and reverence are of prime importance. Legend has it that Abraham agreed without even the slightest doubt to sacrifice his only promised son named Ismail on the express command of God. God wanted to test the love of Abraham for the general masses. Subsequently, before it could be done, Allah intervened and instead provided Abraham a lamb for the sacrifice that is why this day of sacrifice is also termed as Bakr’Eid. At that time the age of Abraham was 99 years and his son only 13 years.
This was also a test of Ismail’s maturity and faith in Allah. He himself offered to be sacrificed. When his father mentioned his (son’s) impending sacrifice, without any reservation the son offered himself. All this is evidence that it was not merely father Abraham but also Ismail was having faith in Allah commandments. It was really unprecedented. Willingness on the part of both father and son to accept the will of God is dear to both, besides being dear to our God.
The lesson learned from EID:
Sacrifice your most precious thing which you possess and the most benevolent Allah will always recompence us for our sacrifice that we make but this sacrifice should be without any expectation.
We should be compassionate towaards the needs of others. By providing succour to the needy, we actually are performing our duty towards our society.
Those who love their fellow-beings are loved by our God.
While fulfilling the needs of others, we should first of all, have indomitable faith on God.
God is very merciful and we all should have faith in Him.
We should all share our happiness and even bad moments and try to alleviate the condition of needy in whatever way we are able to do.
An urge arisen so sudden Born out of outer hunch A feeling generated due to change in mood An abrupt one Or itch for action on conjecture A feeling, so fanciful Or a crazy state of mind Bereft of any wisdom A feeling coming all of a sudden A unbelievable thought which is found on introspection An unsound inclination May be nonconstructive one Not based on any of our premonition But based on reaction When somebody punctures our emotions In other words, an outburst of emotions It is a temporary occurrence In other words It is part of our egocentric tendency Based on selfish tendency With attachment With the fruits of our action Thereby earning for ourself The tag of quickness In thinking and action Bereft of sound thoughts In other words a thoughtless action Based purely on conjuctures And not on sound self-awareness.
An intuition is not based on sudden emotion It is based on acquired warm emotions Over a period of time Acquired on the basis of experiences Gained through trial and error Thereby getting sometimes failures And on other times successes But there springs a feeling from within To tap the inner potential and succeed Thereby gain intuition A feeling so insightful In fact a perceptive mindset Based on sensitive frame of mind Cool inner emotions A feeling so detached From the egocentric tendency Or not get attached to the fruits of our actions But doing our duties to the best of our competence As a spiritual duty. It is also based on our premonition On intuition Or sixth sense Or acquired wisdom Got by facing the hard realities of our existence Which come to our succour When we are stuck in the quagmire of our own creation A dawn of anticipation Results from our own positive actions Repeated many a times And get understanding or wisdom To distinguish between right and wrong. Intuitive feelings spring from inner recesses of our mind And get cemented With its use all the times.
Everybody is insightful But the quality of it all Depends on the Karmic deeds of a person We’ve to be cultivate it Through trial and error method Sometimes failings And other times success knocks our door But ultimately goodness prevails. With the onset of intuition Which is acquired by doing sound Karmic deeds Thereby earning huge Karmic credit Or focusing on our meditation Then there springs out purity in our thoughts and actions Besides purity in our consciousness With deeper emotion Coming out of our heart A thinking mind In fact a cool mind In other words a balance acquired with time Wherein highs and lows of our life does not count The trait of quality of which comes With cool mind And insightful mind.
Everybody is insightful But the quality of it all Depends on the Karmic deeds of a person We’ve to be cultivate it Through trial and error method Sometimes failing And other times success But ultimately goodness prevails.
Sometimes we act impulsively, without much introspection and an act transacted without introspection brings negative results ultimately for ourselves. We must have seen how sudden burst of reaction on anything and everything bring about sad tidings for us.
The sudden burst of thought, without due consideration and bereft of understanding can bring disappointment for us since the sudden thought and action thereof is fundamentally based on egocentric tendency. since whatever comes to our mind with abruptness bereft of past experiences may be deceptive in the long run. Therefore, we should avoid acting impulsively since it is not based on our premonition but based on the spur when we do not have control over our mind. Anything said and done impulsively, carries with it ego and bereft of insightful thoughts, therefore, should be avoided.
Intuition on the other hand is gained over a period of time, fundamentally, after experiences in which we may sometimes fail and other times we may succeed by trial and action. Here, it has inner connect and whatsoever has got inner connection, is without egocentric tendency and a detached from the result of our action.
Intuition is the result of positive thought and action on the positive thought which brings about good results ultimately. As intuitive thoughts are based on our experiences and not on sudden burst of thoughts or hunch or sudden urge, therefore, we should try gaining intuitive power which could be gained through focused meditation and detached actions.

World experienced by the senses are the tracks on which the horses tread.
The Individual self associated with the senses and the mind is the enjoyer.
In essence, we have physical body which is termed as gross body (Sthula shariram). This body of ours is formed by the combination of five elements (Tatavas) namely earth, water fire, space and air in different proportion
As these elements are essential for all the living beings, it is important that we become aware about the characteristics of these constituents:
Permeating the earth, I nourish all living beings with My energy. Becoming the moon, I nourish all plants with the juice of life. BHAGWAD GITA
The following are the traits of EARTH (Prithvi):-
(a) Earth gives us needed resources (Sathan). We extract so many things from earth, mineral oil, coal, precious stones and minerals (Stone, sandstone lime-stones, granites, marble etc.) for meeting our needs. Need is to not to over-extract the earth resources in order to satisfy our greed since these resources are not renewable inside the earth crust.
(b) Food for living beings (Jeevat Praanyon). On sowing seeds in the earth, the seeds grow into plants and then it gives us food which we consume to sustain our body. The plants on the earth coverts carbon into oxygen thus keep the atmosphere pollution free. Plants become helpful in rainfall through the medium of photosynthesis.
(c)Earth is forgiving like mother (Maa). The humans over-exploit the natural bounties found on the earth crust but earth satisfies the needs of all living beings. It forgives all those who resort to over-exploitation of its resources to satisfy their personal greed. That is why Earth has been given the SANGYA of MOTHER EARTH. Mother who always forgives her progenies and goes on to provide more care to its children.
(d)Earth teaches us the feeling of LOVE (Prem). As Earth has been given the objective (Sangya) of Mother Earth, so it gives us love like a mother without any sort of expectations from its progenies and we learn how best we can transfer love with others.
(e)Earth teaches us tolerance and patience. All of us are aware about the sins and crimes which are happening on the planet earth but the Earth tolerates all our sins and crimes. This way, it teaches us the lesson of tolerance and patience.
(f) On earth living being can be habitable to sustain life.
EARTH ATMOSPHERE. It consists mostly nitrogen and oxygen.
I am the taste in water, O son of Kunti, and the radiance of the sun and the moon. I am the sacred syllable Om in the Vedic mantras; I am the sound in ether, and the ability in humans. BHAGWAD GITA.
Water is transparent, inorganic, tasteless, odourless and colourless chemical substance.
It is the main constituent of the earth covers 71 % og earth surface.
It contains hydrogen and oxygen in solid, liquid and gaseous states.
Water is there in blood and digestive juices.
Water teaches us the trait of adjustment as it takes the shape in which the water is poured.
Air is mixture of gases with almost in the constant concentrations.
The following are its properties:-
In essence, air is one of the important constituents without which the living beings cannot survive even for a shortest spell of time.
It occupies the space in which it is contained.
Air has mass.
Air is affected by the temperature in which it is contained. In cold climate it becomes cold and in hot climate it becomes hot.
Air exerts pressure on the surface of the container in which it is contained.
Air could be compressed or packed together.
It has also been learned that the density of air or decreased air pressure means less oxygen available for breathing at the altitude or elevation.
BHAGWADD GITA rightly proclaims: As a kindled fire reduces wood to ashes, O Arjun, so does the fire of knowledge burn to ashes all reactions and ignorance.
When a material gets ignited and combines with oxygen which results in combustion.
In addition, the fire has the following characteristics:
Fire requires three ingredients: heat, material to burn and the oxygen to burn the material.
Fire is the mixture of hot gases. It consumes the material which is on fire.
We use fire as metaphorically; as passion or intensity or intensity in emotion or feeling.
The fire of getting know-how removes ignorance and spreads enlightenment.
Fire in the belly means strong determination to succeed. When we have ‘fire in our belly’ we can be successful in any mission we undertake in life.
The mixing of all the five elements is termed as quintuplification (Panchikaranam). The elements divide themselves into two parts each – one part retains its natural state and the other half divides itself into four parts. This way, each one assists the other elements in ensuring complete body function.
Our body is sustained by the actions (Karma) we perform. When actions just stop then the body too cease to exist – it dissolves into the elements from which it was created on birth. When our actions (Karmic deeds) are divine the body is also divine. Contrarily, when our actions are based on selfishness and greed we are termed as demonic in nature (Asuras).
The body is like a machine or a fan. It is switched on at birth and it continues to function until the time when the engine is on and there is power supply. At the allotted time when the power is turned off, the body ceases to function.The function of our body is perform our action (Karma), get experience (Both joyful and sorrowful).
This part of the body is not seen or nothing is visible to the naked eye but when we can realize it on spiritual awakening. When we have self-realization, it is joyous feeling for us. In fact knowing about the subtle body is equivalent to knowing about our Soul which we come to know when we go deeper into our self-awareness. In other words, this part of body is termed as the experimental container or bag.
It is the cause of our effect. This happens in our day to day existence. That is why it is termed as the existential container or bag
Loneliness does not simply mean You are alone, it means more than this Since everybody has come alone To this earth, so very beautiful Loneliness is a sentiment That you are not connected with the people Or may not be liked by the people around.
There may be people around in majority of number With a variety of relationships including friends in plenty Yet feeling of hurt is felt in the heart That you are still lonely Since you don’t belong to any even in the midst of people around.
The main cause of disconnect Happens when we are not in touch with our own self Despite in the company of so a lot of so many You consider your own but not connected with our inner self Then you’ll feel disconnected from all Meaning lonely in plenty We spend more of our time and energy By remaining in public glare Yet fail to look within, inner recesses of ourselves And become self-realized Bereft of self awareness gives a tinge of indifference And we feel alone even in the company of so many of our own Since they are not connected with our anybody of our own.
We ought to be conscious That all of us are connected with a spirit When we connect within then it means We are connected with everybody which lies around us By so doing, we transform our relationship With others based on love With its centre at the core of our heart.
When we connect with our spirit We’re able to connect With the fountainhead of ocean of love That lies dormant there Which thence flows into every aspect of our lives Since love is cohesive link which units us all Then everything that we experience Is full of connectivity with everybody around Which is the fountainhead of the happiness In the process evaporating our loneliness.
