Somvati Amavasya - Mahesh Bang

After 20 years, Somvati Amavasya (no moon) will fall on 20 July, today, during the month of Sawan. Astrologically, the Moon, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn planets will be in their respective zodiac signs. Despite all that we have faced recently, this is a very unique & beneficial situation to please Lord Shiva more easily. So, I urge all to make the most of this opportunity to indulge in prayer that is appearing after decades in astrological calculations and chant the following powerful man[1]tra for enhancing our immunity. The “Mahamritunjaya” mantra: “Om Tryambakam Yajamahe Sungandhim Pustivardhanam Urvarukamiva Bandhanan Mrityor Muskshiya Maamritat”, this mantra if chanted with dedication will create a protective shield around your aura which is so needed during this time.

The night of Amavasya gradually changes into a pleasant bright morning. Similarly, the dark phase or struggles of your life will result in a bright and happy future. This day signifies that after every dark phase comes to the ray of light. And so All the pain and grief one goes through will also come to an end.

Things to do today- try as much as you can if your circumstances permit:

  1. Observe Maun (silence) or speak as little as possible on this day.
  2. The Peepal tree is revered as a sacred tree. People should tie a sacred thread around the tree’s trunk for 108 times.
  3. An offering of little bit milk is good to do on this day at the base of the Peepal tree.
  4. Devote maximum time in Japa and meditation. Chant powerful mantra Om Namah Shivaya 1 hour at least.
  5. Fasting is recommended for the whole day.
  6. It is considered auspicious to donate things on this day. Astrologically any object of white colour or white food such as rice, curd, sugar, milk, etc. can be donated to the poor.
  7. Any unfulfilled or outstanding ancestors prayer can be fulfilled.
  8. Start planting any kind of plant on the day.
