Margashirsha Amavasya Significance

Margashirsha or Agrahayana is the Hindu month that holds immense religious and spiritual significance. As per Gregorian Calendar, this month falls in November -December. This religious month is named after the Nakshatra Mrigashirsha and is deeply dedicated to Lord Krishna.

Margashirsha Amavasya is a day of ardent devotion and reverence. On this day, devotees pay their respect to the ancestors apart from worshipping Lord Krishna. It is believed that offering respect to the deceased ancestors is said to remove all doshas and assure a blissful life for you and your family. Every religious activity performed on this auspicious new moon night bears deep significance and bestows the devotees with loads of blessings.

Margashirsha Amavasya Vrat Puja

Performing Amavasya Puja on Margashirsha Amavasya and observing a fast on this day is a way of assuring peace and salvation for your ancestors. As per Hindu texts and scriptures, Amavasya Vrat not only pleases your deceased ancestors but also helps you get blessings from Lord Rudra, Indra, Brahma, Sun and Fire among others.

Margashirsha Amavasya significance lies in the fact that taking a dip in any of the holy rivers will help you absolve all your sins. Donation or Daan is another important ritual observed on this day as a symbol of gratitude to the ancestors and attaining the highest level of virtue.
