Jyeshtha Amavasya - Know Rituals & Significance

Amavasya Tithi is considered to be a very fortunate day for charity, pind donations made for the peace of ancestors, tarpan etc. Amavasya is also indicative of the end of one side of a month. For the Hindu Panchang who are Purnimant, this is the fifteenth day of the month, for those who end on Amavasya i.e. for Amavasya, it is the last day of the month.

In this way, this date is also very important for determining the month in the Hindu calendar. After Amavasya, when the Shukla Paksha starts with the moon sighting, then the Krishna Paksha begins after the full moon. On the last day of the Krishna Paksha, when the moon is not visible at all, then it is Amavasya. Although all Amavasya is auspicious for the works of Dharma Karma but Jyeshtha Amavasya has special significance.

Why is the Jyeshtha Amavasya so special?

Actually Jyeshtha Amavasya is celebrated as the birth anniversary of Shani Dev, the justice-loving planet. To avoid Shani dosha, scholars can get remedies for Shani Dosha on this day by astrologers. Not only this, along with Shani Jayanti, women also keep Vat Savitri fast on this day for their husband’s long life. That is why in North India, the eldest Amavasya is considered especially fortunate and auspicious.
