सोमवती अमावास्या की शुभकामनायें
Somvati Amavasya Akhand Mantra Jap
Somvati Amavasi, or Somavati Amavasya, is no moon day that falls on a Monday (Somvar) in traditional Hindu calendar. In 2010, Somvati Amavasya date is August 9. It is considered a highly auspicious day and millions of people take a holy dip in sacred Rivers like Ganga and Yamuna on the day. Married men and women also perform different pujas and rituals and also undertake Somavara Amavasya Vrat.
The Significance of Somvati Amavasya was narrated toYudhishtra by Bhisma in the Mahabharata. It is said that who ever takes a bath in the sacred rivers on the day would be prosperous, free of diseases and would be free from grief and sorrow. There is also a popular belief that the soul of ancestors will rest in peace if children and relatives take a holy dip in the sacred rivers.
Married women take the holy dip for a happy married life and for the long life of their husbands. They also worship the pipal tree on the day. Somavara Amavasya Vrata (fasting) is observed for a long and happy married life by couples. Many devout Hindus also fast on the day and some people only have a single meal.
On the day thousands of people take a dip in Ganga at Haridwar, Triveni and other places.
Pujya Bapuji adviced to perform 108 parikrama of Tulsi for removing dridrata. He has called on to all sadhaks to do jap and parikrama of Tulsiji.
Pujya Bapuji has also advised that doing japa and meditation (dhyan) on Somvati Amavasya is lakh times more beneficial as compared to doing the same on any other day. He further said that performing japa and meditation on Somvati Amavasya would afford the same high religious merits as doing them on the supremely holy nights of Diwali, Holi, Shivratri, Janmashtami or during an eclipse.

Somvati Amavasya Anushthaan vidhi
Somvati amavasya on 9 th august 2010
सोमवती आमवस्या इस बार ९ अगस्त २०१० को है
इन तिथियों पर जप/ध्यान करने का वैसा ही हजारों गुना फल होता है जैसा की सूर्य/चन्द्र ग्रहण में जप/ध्यान करने से होता है:
१. सोमवती अमावस्या – (15thMarch’10, 9thAug’10 )
२. रविवार को सप्तमी हो जाए. (21stFeb’10, 7thMar’10, 4thJul’10, 12thDec’10)
३. मंगलवार की चतुर्थी हो जाए.(19thJan’10, 2ndFeb’10)
४. बुधवार की अष्टमी हो जाए. (15thSept’10)
इन तिथियों पर जप/ध्यान का फल ग्रहण के समय किये ही जप/ध्यान के सामान होता है. इसलिए हमें इन तिथियों पर जादा जप करना चाहिए, जिस से हमें थोडे में ही जादा लाभ मिले
सोमवती अमावस्या के दिन 108 बार अगर तुलसी की परिक्रमा करते हो, ओंकार का थोड़ा जप करते हो, सूर्य नारायण को अर्घ्य देते हो; यह सब साथ में करो तो अच्छा है, नहीं तो खाली तुलसी को 108 बार प्रदक्षिणा करने से तुम्हारे घर से दरिद्रता भाग जाएगी l
The pious tithi (date) of Somvati Amavasya falls on 9th Aug ’10, Pujya Bapuji has advised that observing the following tips on this day would be very beneficial for sadhaks:
Tip 1: For Attaining Prosperity and/or Relief from Financial troubles
If a devotee performs 108 circumambulations (parikrama) of the holy Tulsi (basil) plant on Somvati Amavasya, he will be relieved from financial problems and will attain increased success and prosperity in his job/service/business, etc. Pujya Bapuji advised that this tip is especially important for people who are doing a job (service) and nurture fears of their boss, anxiety of being laid off, etc. People, who have failed in their business earlier or have taken loan and would like to repay it, should also take benefit from this tip.
Pujya Shri further advised that we may also offer our respects to the Tulsi plant by lighting a diya (lamp) near it, one or two days prior to Somvati Amavasya.
Tip 2: For Rapid Spiritual Advancement
Pujya Bapuji said that doing japa and meditation (dhyan) on Somvati Amavasya is lakh times more beneficial as compared to doing the same on any other day. He further mentioned that performing japa and meditation on SomvatiAmavasya would afford the same high religious merits as doing them on the supremely holy nights of Diwali, Holi, Shivratri, Janmashtami or during an eclipse.
Pujya Bapuji has advised that for reaping rich spiritual benefits, a sadhak should try & practice the following on Somvati Amavasya:
i. Observe Maun (silence) or speak as little as possible
ii. Devote maximum time to japa & meditation (dhyan)
iii. If possible, do upvaas (fast) and stay only on milk.
iv. Sleep on the ground on Somvati Amavasya and on the night before as well.
v. On the night before Somvati Amavasya (8th Aug ’10), the sadhak should make a firm resolve, “Tomorrow, I will observe maun (silence), study the holy scriptures & other Satsang books like Divya Prerna Prakash,Jeevan Vikas & Ishvar ki Or, and will engage myself constantly in japa and meditation.”
Pujya Bapuji advised that if a lady is in her menstruation period, she is exempted from the above tips. But all other sadhaks should definitely perform worship of the Lord and circumambulation of the Tulsi plant on Somvati Amavasya, setting aside all their other tasks. This will afford rich financial, intellectual and spiritual benefits to the sadhak.
