To market event of #Mahashivratri, planetary positions cause a natural energy upsurge in the human system.

Otherwise, mock Jyotish and claim planets can't impact life and can't decide destiny.

Decide yourself.
He will mock Jyotish but for his own profit, claim the same thing (planets impact humans) which Jyotish does? But I can't question him? Why? He should first decide what he believes in.
My knowledge is very much limited - I have no hesitation in accepting this. However, Jyotish is an Anga of Veda. A true Yogi would never mock it.

#EXCLUSIVE: Bankers may be working all 31 days of March with the government looking to double the loans doled out under the #PMSVANidhi scheme…

By @pabsgill
@pabsgill Public sector banks are always anxious in March as the financial year draws to a close. It's not uncommon for the management to ask employees to pull a few extra hours at work. However, this year, some public sector bank employees may be working all 31 days of the month.
@pabsgill On the one hand, the Indian government has issued an order asking banks to double the disbursements given out under the #PMSVANidhi scheme. And, on the other, the banks have their own internal targets to meet when it comes to agricultural loans, #MSME credit and other aspects.

#MahaShivratri is celebrated by the devotees of Lord Shiva, who is the God of meditation, austerity, and contemplation. It is believed that Lord Shiva and Parvati got married on this auspicious night of Maha Shivratri.🙏🌿
On the month's 13th night/14th day, but once a year in late winter (February/March, or phalgun) and before the arrival of Summer, marks Maha Shivaratri which means "the Great Night of Shiva". There's a Shivaratri in every luni-solar month of the Hindu calendar. 🌿
Devotees strongly believe that praying to Lord Shiva on this auspicious day washes away their sins and takes them closer to the path of salvation. On this day, devotees observe strict fast and worship Lord Shiva with Milk, honey, sandalwood paste, Bel Leaves, flowers, fruits. 🌿

#Mahashivratri had NOTHING to do with "astronomical phase of the planet". In fact, astronomical phase of the planet is not even a real thing. No special astronomical alignment happens on this day.
Do not, even for a moment, believe the #pseudoscience being peddled by @SadhguruJV
As some people like to know more information about this, here are some points worth considering.
1. given that our luni-solar calenders have to add Adhika Maasa every 2.5 years, the earth's location w.r.t. sun and stars is not the same every year's mahashivratri.
2 phase of any astronomical body is merely an optical effect based on how that body appears to the observer - it has nothing to do with the body itself. E.g. half the moon is always lighted, irrespective of tithi. We just see differing part of lighted portion.

The new year begins and I usher into a scientific journey where I shall be challenging myself with scientific quest and reviewing a scientific article/blog/interview/technique or facts on a daily basis. (or at least try😉) #365DaysOfScience
Let the journey begin.
The most cited article (over 300,000 times) is the @jbiolchem paper for a technique to estimate protein concentration in a solution. The paper is "Protein measurement with the folin phenol reagent".

Yes, the classic Lowry's method was published in May 1951. This is a colourimetric assay which gives an estimation of the amount of protein based on a standard curve obtained from a protein of known concentration (usually BSA).

1)Panchmukha Shivalingam, Bronze, Himachal Pradesh
Dated: ~16th century CE
This bronze linga is panchamukha and represents each of Shiva’s five heads, namely Sadyojata, Aghora, Vamadeva, Tatpurusha and, in the centre, Sadashiva (the ‘eternally auspicious’). #MahaShivratri Image
2)When these five heads appear on a linga they are usually different in appearance; Vamadeva is generally portrayed as a woman and Aghora as a fierce figure. But here there are five identical heads, an iconography more common after the fifteenth century.
3)Each has a moustache, a third eye, a seven-leaf crown with a crescent moon in the centre, a double string of rudraksha seeds, a necklace of skulls and snakes for earrings. The hands beside the heads present additional iconographic details.
