BHAI DOOJ

Bhai Dooj, Bhaubeej, Bhai Tika, Bhai Phonta is a festival celebrated by Hindus on the second lunar day of Shukla Paksha (bright fortnight) in the Vikram Samvat Hindu calendar or of Shalivahan Shaka calendar month of Kartika. It is celebrated during the Diwali or Tihar festival and Holi festival. The celebrations of this day are similar to the festival of Raksha Bandhan. On this day, elder brothers give gifts to their younger sisters. In the southern part of the country, the day is celebrated as Yama Dwitiya.

On the day of the festival, sisters invite their brothers for a sumptuous meal often including their favourite dishes/sweets. The procedure may be different in Bihar and central India. The whole ceremony signifies the duty of a brother to protect his sister, as well as a sister’s blessings for her brother.

Carrying forward the ceremony in traditional style, sisters perform arti for their brother and apply a red tika on the brother’s forehead. This tika ceremony on the occasion of Bhai Bij signifies the sister’s sincerest prayers for the long and happy life of her brother and treat them with gifts. In return, elder brothers bless their sisters and may treat them also with gifts or cash.

As it is customary in Haryana, Maharashtra to celebrate the auspicious occasion of Bhau-beej, women who do not have a brother worship the moon god instead. They apply mehendi on girls as their tradition.

The sister whose brother lives far away from her and can not go to her house, sends her sincerest prayers for the long and happy life of her brother through the moon god. She performs aarti for the moon. This is the reason why children of Hindu parents affectionately call the moon Chandamama (Chanda means moon and mama means mother’s brother).

THE FIELD AND IT’S KNOWER

GITA WISDOM # 32

क्षेत्रक्षेत्रज्ञयोरेवमन्तरं ज्ञानचक्षुषा ।
भूतप्रकृतिमोक्षं च ये विदुर्यान्ति ते परम्‌॥

An executive shall know the subtle difference between the field and its knower. One is a physical factor and the other, an intrinsic knowledge of the physical forces. By virtue of his deeper consciousness, he should also be aware of the flow of actions arising out of human nature. (13.34)

इस प्रकार क्षेत्र और क्षेत्रज्ञ के भेद को (क्षेत्र को जड़, विकारी, क्षणिक और नाशवान तथा क्षेत्रज्ञ को नित्य, चेतन, अविकारी और अविनाशी जानना ही ‘उनके भेद को जानना’ है) तथा कार्य सहित प्रकृति से मुक्त होने को जो पुरुष ज्ञान नेत्रों द्वारा तत्व से जानते हैं, वे महात्माजन परम ब्रह्म परमात्मा को प्राप्त होते हैं
॥34॥

An executive shall know the subtle difference between the field and its knower. One is a physical factor and the other, an intrinsic knowledge of the physical forces. By virtue of his deeper consciousness, he should also be aware of the flow of actions arising out of human nature. (13.34)

Have a peaceful day!

HABITS THAT MAKE YOUR LIFE BETTER PART – II

Be Inspired..!!

When it comes to creating a more balanced, happy life, we often look to massive lifestyle shifts as the only solution. (If you, like me, have ever set a New Year’s resolution to simply “be healthier”, you probably know what I mean).This mentality often results in overwhelm, lack of sustainability, and a huge sense of frustration when results don’t come as quickly or as easily as we’d like.

Sometimes all is takes is a quick adjustment in our daily routine to change our lives. Here are a few habits that make your life better :

  • Put One things in a Pile for Donation – Most of us have too much stuff. When you’re getting dressed, find that one item of clothing you never wear and put it in a pile for donation. Repeat every few days, then start checking other spots (kitchen cabinets, bookshelves, kid’s playrooms). Then find your nearest…
