Amavasya embodies an unnamed fear, somewhat justified due to the absence of the moon's cooling presence and the prevalence of negative energies. Hence, performing devotional deeds on this day is deemed auspicious. Let's also discuss the common pitfalls to avoid. Jyeshta Amavasya falls on 5th July this year. Let's delve into the key aspects of this occasion.

This year, Jyeshta Amavasya falls on June 5. According to Dharma Shastra, specific regulations must be adhered to on this Tithi. The Moon and Sun are regarded as guiding forces in human life. Amavasya, synonymous with a moonless night, symbolizes a lack of mental stability, given the Moon's influence on the mind.

An effective method to pacify the restless mind is through worshipping God or meditation! Let's explore the prescribed remedies associated with Jyeshtha Amavasya. Referred to as Halharini Amavasya, bathing on this day is deemed propitious.

On this Tithi, homage is paid to Shankar, Vishnu, and Lakshmi. Both Poornima and Amavasya are favorable for Goddess Lakshmi. Vishnu is revered to ensure Lakshmi's benevolent arrival without causing discord. Shiva, the inhabitant of graveyards, signifies fearlessness amidst darkness and tribulations through devotion.

This year, Shani Shasha Yoga and Sarvartha Siddhi Yoga coincide on Jyeshtha Amavasya, both heralding auspicious times with assured success in ventures. One should avoid consuming Tamasic foods on this day to seek Shani's blessings.

On Jyeshtha Amavasya, rise early, cleanse yourself, and devoutly worship deities to dispel negativity and foster a positive outlook. Amidst the prevalence of negative energies on Amavasya, it's advisable to avoid desolate areas as they attract malevolent individuals. Adhering to Dharmashastra, this precaution safeguards against unfavorable encounters.

During the new moon, it is better to avoid conflicts and opt for peaceful separations to prevent any future regrets.

Observing celibacy, eating pure foods and avoiding alcohol and meat is advised on this day. Scriptures emphasize giving up these worldly pleasures to enhance one's spiritual path.
