TODAY,JANUARY 21, is observed as Mauni Amavasyaon throughout India for this year. For all Indians worldwide, this day is regarded as the most auspicious day in Hinduism. This Mauni Amavasya, sometimes referred to as Maghi Amavasya, occurs in the middle of the month of Magha. This year, the mauni and shani amavasya fall on the same day, which is why so many people take a plunge in the holy river Ganga to fulfil their desires.

According to News 18, the head of the astrology department at Shri Kallaji Vedic Vishwavidyalaya, Dr. Mrityunjay Tiwari, advised offering black sesame and mustard oil to Lord Shani.
