Importance of Phalguna Amavasya

For those who believe in Hinduism, every month’s Amavasya is important, but Phalguni Amavasya has its own special significance. done for the peace of the souls of their fathers. Panditji says that the souls who are dead till death reach the ancestral world.

This is their temporary residence and they have to stay there until the final decision of their fate is made. During this time, they have to endure extreme pain of hunger and thirst because they are not able to take anything on their own. Their suffering is solved only when their relatives, acquaintances, or anyone who considers them from the land surrender shraddha donations to them.

Though Shraddha is always performed on the same date on which the imparted soul travels through the world, if it is not possible and for some reason, it is not known, then it can be done on the new moon every month.

There are 12 Amavasya in the year. If you are not able to do this on every Amavasya in continuation, then some Amavasya are considered auspicious especially for Shraddha Karma only. Phalguna Amavasya is one of them.
