Significance Of Margashirsha Amavasya

Pitru Puja is performed on Margashirsha Amavasya just like it is on every other Amavasya. However, the religious practises carried out on this day are regarded as extremely fortunate and bestow pious benefits upon the worshippers and their ancestors. People also give to charity and donate on this day in remembrance of their ancestors' tranquil afterlives. Additionally, it is thought that fasting on Margashirsha Amavasya cleanses the devotees' lives of all faults and gives peace and wealth.

The Hindu scriptures state that this month of Margshirsha is solely devoted to Lord Krishna. According to the Bhagwad Gita, Lord Krishna declared that of all the months, he is the Margashirsha month. Deities regarded the first day of Margashirsha month as the start of the year during Satyug.

People are required to bathe in the Ganga, Yamuna, and other sacred rivers during this holy month. Devotees participate in religious rituals such as Kirtans and Bhajans, which are thought to be very fortunate. Other names for this month include Magsar and Agahan.
