Importance of Chaitra Amavasya
According to Hindu religious belief, Amavasya Tithi is dedicated to the mirror of Peters. Hence fasting is observed on this day for the peace of the souls of the fathers. Especially for those who are suffering from Pitra dosha, Amavasya fast is important for the prevention of this dosha. At the same time, it is considered to be best to offer the ancestors on the day of Chaitra Amavasya, like Amavasya of the other month. By doing this, fathers get freedom.
