Ashadha Amavasya 2024: Know the Importance of the Fourth Amavasya of the Year

Ashadha Amavasya is the new moon night that occurs in the Hindu month of Ashadha. The cycle of the moon is a very important factor that contributes to the Hindu calendar. It helps us determine the Shukla Paksha and the Krishna Paksha which allows the month to be divided into two parts. Therefore, at the end of every Shukla Paksha comes the Full Moon i.e. the Purnima, and at the end of every Krishna Paksha comes the New Moon i.e. the Amavasya.

There are a total of twelve days of Amavasya in a year in the Hindu Calendar and today, we are going to tell you about the Amavasya that arrives in the fourth month of the Hindu Calendar, the Ashadha Amavasya. So let us take a look at the Muhurat of the Ashadha Amavasya in 2024.

The Significance of Ashadha Amavasya

The day of the Amavasya occurs once a month when the moon is nowhere to be seen in the sky. According to the Hindu religion, the day is very auspicious for several reasons. Although every Amavasya serves a different purpose it is believed that the Amavasya that falls on a Monday is highly auspicious as it is very dear to Lord Shiva. However, every Amavasya is highly significant for pleasing one’s ancestors and performing “Tarpan” for them. It is believed that on this day our ancestors come to the Earth and that we can acquire their blessings by performing the rituals of the Amavasya.

The Ashadha Amavasya is especially significant for farmers because on this day farmers worship the equipment and tools that they use for farming. It is also a very auspicious day to please one’s ancestors by taking a bath in the river and then donating necessities like food, clothes et cetera to the needy.
