Dark­est day of month is of sig­nif­i­cant im­por­tance

Rare oc­cur­rence is con­sid­ered highly aus­pi­cious and will oc­cur six times this year

Sunday Tribune - - SOUL JOURNEY -

AMAVASYA is the day of no moon in the Hindu cal­en­dar. It is the dark­est day of the month and holds a sig­nif­i­cant im­por­tance in our re­li­gion. Many peo­ple ob­serve a fast on this day.

Shanichary Amavasya is the no moon day that falls on a Satur­day (shani­var) and Som­vati amavasya is the no moon that falls on a Mon­day. It is a rare oc­cur­rence and is con­sid­ered to be a highly aus­pi­cious day. This year it will oc­cur six times. It hap­pened on Jan­uary 5 and will oc­cur again on Fe­bru­ary 4, May 4, June 3, Septem­ber 28 and Oc­to­ber 28. It takes a cou­ple of decades for such amavasya to fall in one year.

It is said wor­ship­ping any form of god as per your faith and re­li­gion on Amavasya gives im­mense ben­e­fits.

It is con­sid­ered an im­por­tant day to re­duce the ef­fects of Shani Dosha and per­form Pi­tra Tarpan.

The dark night of Amavasya grad­u­ally changes into a pleas­ant bright morn­ing. Sim­i­larly, the dark phase or strug­gles of your life will re­sult in a bright and happy fu­ture. This day sig­ni­fies that af­ter ev­ery dark phase comes the ray of light.

All the pain and grief one goes through will also come to an end.

Moon grows from Amavasya, namely no moon day to full moon day and make a beau­ti­ful ap­pear­ance on Poorn­ima.

It also sig­ni­fies against all odds.

Just like the moon we should try to grow as beau­ti­ful souls. spir­i­tual growth
