Importance of Mauni Amavasya
The classical belief is that on the day of Mauni Amavasya, the water of the holy rivers of Ganga, Yamuna, Narmada etc. becomes nectar. Hence Mauni Amavasya is special for Magh Snan. On this day, while observing silence, one should behave like sages throughout the day. Sadhus, saints, sages, Mahatmas have all been preaching discourses since ancient times that mind should be controlled. The mind runs very fast. This is also the purpose of Mauni Amavasya that the mind should be restrained by observing a silent fast on this day. In your mind, remember the name of God. It is also a compound practice of cultivating the mind. It is also believed that if it is not possible for someone to remain silent, then he should not let any kind of malaise in his thoughts, even if he does not say any harsh words to anyone, then the fast of Mauni Amavasya is successful for him. On this day, worship Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva with a sincere heart.
