What is Amavasya
Amavasya is the name given to a new moon night according to the Hindu mythology. It is the first night of the first quarter of the lunar month.
Since the moon is not visible on the day, Amavasya is also referred as No Moon night. Many people in India choose this day to make an offering to their dead ancestors.
There is also an ongoing debate whether Amavasya is auspicious or inauspicious.
