End Of Life On Earth And Ganesha

As per Hindu teachings, the cycle of life on earth comes to an end when evil overpowers the earth. When life on earth has gone beyond regeneration, it will be put to an end through the will of the Supreme Truth. As per Saptashati, Ganesha plays a role in ending life on earth. When Adharma gains in strength, Ganesha uses his powerful trunk to suck up the entire water from earth. This will dry up the earth and the oceans. Then the fire hidden in the sea known as Vadavagni will reach up the sky and swallow the entire earth. This will result in the end of a cycle of creation. Thousands of human years later, Ganesha will once again pour water on earth from his trunk. This will signal the beginning of a new cycle of creation. Another form of Ganesha associated with end of creation is  Dhumraketu or Dhumravarna . From the archive Hindu God Agni Facts - Popular Stories Of Agni In Hinduism

Shravan month is associated with Lord Shiva and non-vegetarian food is avoided in the month. From a religious perspective, it is a holy month and therefore non-veg food is avoided. But there is also a scientific reason behind avoiding meat, egg and fish. Sun and the moon are not visible for majority of the days in Shravan month due to dense rain clouds. This affects the working of the human body. We will not be having the same digestive power as in other seasons of the year. A weak digestive system cannot digest meat. Eating non-vegetarian food can thus cause various ailments. Therefore, meat, egg and fish are avoided during the period. Another reason is that birds, animals and fish give birth during the period. Killing pregnant beings is a big sin. It is also scientifically not correct to kill pregnant animals, as it is very much necessary for maintaining a healthy livestock population.
