About the event

What happens during Amavasya?

Gujarati: (અમાવાસ્યા)

On an amavasya day, the sun and the moon are in the same direction (one below the other), as seen from the earth. This causes the portion of the moon in front of the earth not to be illuminated by the sun. The result - complete darkness for that side of the moon

Being the darkest day of the month, Amavaysa is considered one of the most powerful and impactful times of the year. This is why many important rituals and traditions are observed on this day by devotees across the world.
