Significance of Mauni Amavasya
Silence (Mauna) is one of the most important aspects of spiritual discipline in Hindu mythology. Derived from the word Muni (Saint) who practices silence, it ideally symbolizes a state of oneness with the self. Apart from religious values, Mauni Amavasya is a call of the inner self for initiating an inner ‘dialogue’ with oneself to start one real spiritual journey. This is the day of silence in Hinduism when people take pledge to observe one day fasting by not uttering single word to learn to control the vikshepa, releasing ourselves of distractions to focus within.
Importance of Mauni Amavasya Snan
It is believed that the water of Ganga turns into the nectar on this Amavasya, therefore Mauni Amavasya Snan is the most important day in Hindu calendar to take holy dip. During Kumbh Mela, this one snan is the most important bathing day in Allahabad and known as the day of Amrit Yoga. Many devotees take pledge to take holy dip in Ganga not only on Mauni Amavasya day but also during whole month of Magha. Such ritual starts on Paush Purnima and ends on Magha Purnima.
