Birthday of Ganesh - Skanda-Purana: chapter One, 2-nd part of "Kumarikha Khande", post 27
Its 1-st day of October - at least it was the idea - to greet October at October 1, and I'm continue Skanda Purana's revelations - great source of inspiration, energy and a good vibes! And good morning everybody - here it is.
Goddess Parvati planted the Ashoka tree and honoring it as Her son. She calling 7 Great Rishis to run the rites to sanctify the tree, as a one of them. Rishis asked her: "O Goddess, only you can set-up ritual of tree planting as a Rule. What is a point to honour the tree as a son?"
"If wise one digging the well in a village without water - he will enjoy in Heaven as much, as water in this well. Pool is equal to 10 of same wells, pond is uqual to 10 of that pools. Daughter, being marry, equal to 10 of that ponds, one sacrifice same as 10 daughters. One son equal to 10 of sacrifices, and one tree equal to the 10 sons.
This is my Rule, its invariable and valid in all the worlds. When the destroyed is reborning, reward for that get doubled". That's was a Birthday of Ganesha. Kalos Fund presents "Tree Ownership" with cocoa trees in Nakhon SI Thammarat.
