Hariyali Amavasya - Rarest Triple Auspicious Combo Today

Today is Hariyali Amavasya; and this day is a rare combo of 3 most auspicious astrological things. Widen your knowledge about Hariyali Amavasya and read facts associated through this article...

Hariyali Amavasya in 2014 will be celebrated on July 26.

Hariyali Amavasya is the day to welcome the cool showers of monsoon, greenery of agricultural season, and seek blessings of Shiva and Krishna. Hariyali signifies greenery and Amavasya stands for New Moon Day. As per North Indian Hindu calendar, Hariyali Amavasya falls on the Amavasya of the Shravan (Sawan) month. While according to the South Indian Hindu calendar, it is observed in the Ashadham month. It should be noted that both these days are same. Hariyali Amavasya is a highly sacred day and comes three days prior to Hariyali Teej. Beauty of this day increases with lush green surroundings, cool drops of rain, and festive mood spread in the environment. 

“If an Amavasya falls on Saturday, its effect gets doubled. The day is considered highly auspicious for Pitru Karya and Deva Karya. This day is considered highly auspicious for performing the Shradh of those souls who departed due to an untimely or unnatural death. Apart from this, this day is also very special for those who are affected by the planet Saturn. If you are going through Shani Sade Sati, Dhaiyya, Shani Dasha/Mahadasha, or your Saturn is malefic, you may go for Shani Shanti Puja on this day. Conjunction of Amavasya and Saturday is a very rare event that occurs once in a blue moon to give us a chance of getting rid of our problems. 
One more thing is adding charm to the auspiciousness of this day i.e. Pushya Nakshatra. The Constellation Pushya is also prevailing on this day of Amavasya, which is falling of Saturday. Hence, this is a very powerful combination. You may get immense benefit by performing some rituals. If you believe in gemstones, wearing Blue Sapphire today will be very auspicious and beneficial. However, it will be great to consult an astrologer before considering a gemstone.”
