Bhadrapada Amavasya Significance

Bhadrapada Amavasya has great significance in the Hindu religion. People believe that by observing a fast they will be liberated from all the sins of their previous birth. It brings harmony and happiness among family members and provides peace to the departed ancestors. This day is also considered important to get freedom from Kaal-Sarp Dosh.

Bhadrapada Amavasya Rituals

After that Pind Daan is offered to the ancestors and food and clothes are distributed among the poor. In the evening, light a mustard oil lamp under the Peepal tree and circumambulate it 7 times.

Thus both the devotee and his ancestors are freed from their sins and attain peace and liberation. People also perform puja in their homes and visit nearby temples to seek the blessings of the deities.
