Paush Amavasya

Paush Amavasya

If you are in 2019 then you will have to wait for Paush Amavasya till 2021.

According to the Vedic calendar, the last date of Krishna Paksha in Paush month is called Paush Amavasya. Worship of Sun God in Paush month has special significance. According to religious belief, many religious works are performed on the new moon day. Tarpan and Shradh are performed on this day for the peace of the souls of ancestors. Fasting is also observed on this day to get rid of Pitra Dosh and Kaal Sarp Dosh.

Two new moons falling in the month of Paush in 2019

The coincidence of Paush Amavasya in any year is quite rare. In some year, two new moon dates fall in Paush month, then not even one in some year. In such a situation, this special coincidence is happening in the year 2019. In the year 2019, Paush Amavasya is falling twice i.e. on 5th January and 26th December, which is a rare coincidence. The special thing is that in the month of Paush of the year 2020, there is no new moon date. In such a situation, if you have to take any special measures on Paush Amavasya, then instead of waiting for a year, do it in 2019 itself. If you miss then you will have to wait till 2021. In the year 2021, Paush Amavasya will fall on Wednesday, January 13.
