Amavasya Dates 2022: A List of All the Amavasya Days in 2022 and its Significance

Amavasya is the day of the month when the moon is not visible in the sky, it is also known as the New Moon day. As we all know the moon goes through various phases in a month, therefore the months in the Hindu calendar are calculated as per the phases of the moon. According to the Hindu Calendar, the phases of the moon divide the month into two parts namely Shukla Paksha and Krishna paksha. Both the Pakshas consist of fifteen days each. At the end of every period, the moon is either completely visible, i.e. Purnima, or absolutely hidden i.e. Amavasya. The period between the Purnima and the Amavasya is known as the Krishna Paksha and the fifteen days between the Amavasya and the Purnima are called the Shukla Paksha.

Thus, every month of the year has one Amavasya each making it a total of twelve Amavasya’s in a year. The year 2022 also has twelve days of Amavasya, so let us take a look at the Amavasya Dates 2022.

The Significance of Amavasya

The Amavasya is a very significant day in the Hindu religion. A number of important rituals are performed on this day due to the astrological significance of the new moon. However, all the days of Amavasya are important as they are suitable for performing “Shradh” or paying homage to their ancestors in order to please them and acquire their blessings. On this day, people affected by Pitra Dosha should perform all the necessary rituals in order to get rid of it.

Furthermore, the people affected by Kaal Sarp Dosha can also reduce the effects of the curse by acquiring the blessings of their ancestors and the Lord. The Kaal Sarp Dosha is a curse that one acquires by killing a snake by mistake or purposely, under when they often see dreams of dead relatives and corpses. The Amavasya is a good day to keep a fast and donate food, clothes, and other essential items to charity. Now that we know the significance of Amavasya, let us take a look at some of the most fortunate days of Amavasya in 2022.
