Amavasya, or Amavasai, is the name of new moon night in Hindu religion. It is the first night of the first quarter of the lunar month. Since the moon is invisible on the day, Amavasya is also referred as no moon night. Amavasi holds great importance in Hinduism. Many Hindus choose this day to make offering (tarpanam) to the deceased ancestors.

The term ‘Amavasya’ is commonly used in all regional languages in India. The fortnight that starts with Amavasya is also referred as the Shukla paksha (bright half of the month). Mauni Amavasya in Hindu Magh month (January – February) and Mahalya Amvasya in Ashwayuja (September – October) are highly auspicious. Similarly the Amavasi in Aadi month is of great importance in Tamil Nadu. The Amavasya in Karkidakam month is of importance in Kerala.

Our departed forefathers / ancestors cannot come to this world whenever they think, except on Amavasai ( No Moon ), the starting day of every month and during Mahalaya Paksha. So they all will come in sookshma (means not visible to naked eyes) deha (body) and if we offer them the sesame (gingili) and water they accept that, and bless us directly.

There are only three times a year that we can strongly influence and help our departed ancestors elevate to higher plane and in return they will bless us for our well being.

This coming Thai Masam Amavasai (New Moon) on 09 February 2024 the departed souls will visit the earth plane to bless their relations. Performing tarpanam rituals for them on this special day is very important for both our material and spiritual enhancement. They can bless us with greater health, wealth, prosperity and enlightenment. Tarpanam on Thai Masam Amavasai is best performed by trained priests.

2024 Thai Amavasya Puja at Kanjanur Lord Agniswarar Temple

Agniswarar Temple, Kanjanur
Kanjanur Lord Agniswarar Temple is one Hindu temple in the village of Kanjanur, 18 kilometres north-east of Kumbakonam. The presiding deity is Sukra (Venus). However, the main idol in the temple is that of “Agniswarar” or Shiva. In concordance with the Saivite belief that Shiva is all-pervading, Sukra is believed to be located within the stomach of the idol of Shiva.

Legend is that Siva blessed Parasara muni (sage) here with the cosmic dance. It is believed that Shiva appeared in the form of Sukra to propitiate himself free from the dosham of Sukra. The temple is counted as one of the temples built on the northern banks of River Kaveri.
