5 things to do to celebrate Janmasthami

[A Thread] 👇
1. Pray in Brahma Muhurata
Brahma Muhurta is the morning period between 3.30 a.m. and 5.30 a.m.

You can chant Krishna's name during this period to purify your mind and surroundings and have a refreshing start to the day.
2. Fast until midnight
Fasting is an important component of celebrating Janmashtami. If possible, begin fasting at dawn and refrain from eating until midnight.

If fasting till midnight feels too much of a burden, you can consume water, fruits, and milk.

🥁THE FLOATS OF THE GION MATSURI🙌
July, consumed as it is with the Gion Matsuri, always passes in the blink of an eye, so I thought I'd compile a list of the 34 individual floats ('yamaboko' 山鉾) that you'll be able to see at this month's festival.

#GionMatsuri #祇園祭 #Kyoto ImageImageImageImage
1) NAGINATA-HOKO (長刀鉾)⚔️

The Naginata-hoko always leads the Gion Matsuri's first parade, the 'Saki Matsuri' (先祭り). As it is exempt from the lottery to determine the position of the floats, it was known in the past as 'Kuji-torazu' (くじ取らず 'Lot-drawing Not Necessary'). ImageImageImageImage
The float's name comes from the long halberd (鉾 'hoko') that rises from its roof to drive away evil. It is said the original was made by famed swordsmith Sanjō Munechika (三條宗近) in the 10thC to thank the gods after his daughter was spared from a terrible plague.

Happy Raja Parba to each and every girl/woman out there🙏🏻 A special festival which celebrates womanhood and menstruation😇.

[A Thread]
1/n
While there are many debates going on whether menstruating woman are discriminated or not in our country.
Here is a festival from Odisha and odias which celebrates menstruation - 'Raja Parba'.
2/n
Raja is taken from the word Rajaswala, which means menstruating women. The people of Odisha believed that during the first three days Bhudevi (Mother Earth), the wife of Lord Jagannath undergoes menstruation and is given a ceremonial bath the fourth day.

1. Every #MakaraSankranti, I'm reminded of the Spinning Top. लट्टू. ಬುಗುರಿ. பம்பரம்.
Unlike kite-flying, it's not a ritual sport, at least AFAIK.
My dad would use this analogy when he explained the path of the sun around the earth through the year - the #Solar #ecliptic.
2. Following is a #Thread about the 'why' of #MakaraSankranti. Please bear with me if this is already known.

Let's say, Earth was a round top and the Sun would wind thread around it. Each time, the new rotation of the thread (pitch) would sit right next to the previous one.
3. If it started on the Tropic of Capricorn, the pitch moving North, it would go on upto the Tropic of Cancer, stop there, change direction & start moving South again, until it reached the Tropic of Capricorn, where it would turn North again. Ad infinitum.

I want to start a new thread story. Not sure how long it will be and I may use different prompts: #vss365 #vssmagic #vssnature etc etc ... I love reading about legends and folk lore, and in my fantasy writing I often create my own myths. So this will be just a fun exercise...
According to #lore &myths of old,griffins nestled on these cliffs long ago. They swooped down on the unsuspecting;carried them off never to be seen again.
Griffins were not elemental creatures,but air & earth did have dominion over them; their only enemy -fire.
#vss365 #vssmagic
"I helped your troupe avoid #shadow and #gore," said the dark wizard simply, implying that he saved us from the mythical griffins. I gaped at him. "And now for what you promised."

"No," I was careful not to get trapped in words, "I said: after you summon her."

What is PARYUSHAN?

It is the holiest 8-day festival in the annual Jain calendar followed by Shwetambar Jains. Similarly, Digambars follow Das Lakshana, a 10-day spiritual festival that starts when Paryushan ends, on the Samvatsari day.

#jainism #jain #paryushan #festival
This festival is important for Jains since it only comes once in a year. #Jain festivals are characterized by renunciation, austerities, study of the scriptures, repetition of holy hymns, meditation & expressing devotion for the Paramatma.
Not only underground vegetables but consuming of fresh vegetables & fruits is also prohibited during Paryushan. Everyday some or the other Tap is followed. In any tap, chauvihar is a must ie, No food or water after sunset until Navkarsi (48 minutes after sunrise) next day.

🔴 Avec @davidlisnard pour la présentation des orientations culturelles, retenues par la #MairieDeCannes, pour le futur grand Musée International du Cinéma et du Festival de Cannes.

Objectif ➡️ doter la ville d’un équipement culturel/touristique d’envergure internationale.
🔴 Accueillant déjà le plus grand festival de cinéma du monde, #Cannes se positionne légitimement pour disposer de ce temple du 7ème art et doter notre pays d’un équipement capable de se distinguer des autres références internationales en la matière, telles que l’@AcademyMuseum.
🔴 Pour cela, le scénario retenu mettra en avant l’expertise et les collections de la @cinemathequefr, ainsi qu’un partenariat renforcé avec l’association du @Festival_Cannes afin de proposer à tous les visiteurs une expérience immersive inédite, spectaculaire et inventive 🎦

Today is the first #newmoon after the summer #solstice meaning it's 1 Hekatombaion - Athenian New Year! The Athenians had a number of calendars in use; Hekatombaion was the first month of the lunisolar 'festival calendar'.
New holders of civic offices would be sworn in, swearing oaths, with the gods as their witness, to fulfil their duties in a manner befitting the office. Athenian #democracy relied on its citizens' (free Athenian men) direct participation in the councils, assemblies and courts.
The latest batch of #ephebes - 18-year-old sons of citizens - were called up. They'd swear an oath to defend Athens and never shame the city. Two years of training would start turning boys into well-disciplined #hoplites; they gained a cloak, a spear, a shield and #citizenship.

De intocht komt al goed op gang. Continu stroom mensen richting de polderheuvel. Maar: men is redelijk rustig, geen files op straat. #polderheuvel #festival
Omdat deze mensen allemaal via deze route komen, verwacht ik ook dat ze straks allemaal tegelijk via deze route vertrekken. Dan wordt het echt interessant: werkt het nieuwe verkeersplan en wat doet de regen in deze situatie? #festival #polderheuvel
Het is als de organisatoren wijs zijn er alles aan gelegen vandaag goed te laten verlopen. Weerstand is afgelopen jaren enorm gegroeid, het succesvolle verzet van buurtbewoners ook. 2 jaar geleden zijn er 2 vergunningen (achteraf) ongeldig verklaard. #polderheuvel #festival

Danke für die Formulierung der Argumente,
welche ich jetzt anwenden darf:

🔴Ds la récente enquête du @MinistereCC sur les pratiques culturelles des Français, publiée l’été dernier, on y lit en effet que 19% des Français déclarent avoir participé à un festival en 2018. Ils étaient 7% en 1981.
Le phénomène de « #festivalisation » est donc en plein essor Image
et attire de nouvelles têtes. Mais cette festivalisation, si elle renouvelle les publics, ne s’est pas popularisée pour autant !
►L’étude #SoFEST, souligne que la part des cadres parmi les festivaliers est restée stable (49% en 2019 contre 51% en 2008), quand celle des employés
a presque chuté de 50%. Les festivaliers demeurent majoritairement issus des catégories intellectuelles et sociales supérieures, y compris – et c’est étonnant – ds les festivals de musiques actuelles, à l’image pourtant plus accessible !

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

Tirumala #Brahmotsavam -
spectacular utsavam of vahanams is a 9 day annual festival which is celebrated with utmost pomp.
But this year it is happening in 'Ekantham' within temple premises without allowing any devotees(Sep19-Sept27)
This ustav called as Salakatla Brahmotsavam. ImageImage
#Brahmotsavam #Legend-Brahma is believed to have 1st conducted this festival at Tirupati. Brahma worshiped Sri Balaji on the banks of Pushkarini in Tirupati as a way to give thanks for protecting worlds. So this Utsav is known as Brahmotsavam(means Brahma’s Utsavam)

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Welcome back to another episode of the #WildAboutFacts series. Today, we are taking over your feed with pictures and #trivia of one of the most alluring creatures from the #wild, the #RedPanda.

Join us, share your #photographs of the #Firefox of the #Himalayas.

#WildAboutFacts

Its distinctive fur has earned this species monikers such as #Firefox, Firecat, or Fire-coloured Cat. Arguably, the #RedPanda is the only true #Panda, as the #GiantPanda, which is believed to be closely related, belongs to the #bear family.

📷Senthil Murugan
#WildAboutFacts

Around half of the #RedPanda’s natural habitat lies in the Eastern #Himalayas#Nepal, #Sikkim, northern #WestBengal, #Bhutan, and #ArunachalPradesh.

Its remaining home is in northern #Myanmar and a few provinces of central #China.

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites"
kreis-vg.de Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)
