Amavasya and its importance
Amavasya, also called Amavasi, refers to the New Moon night as per the Hindu mythology. When the lunar month starts, the first night in the first quarter is the Amavasya date.
Since the Moon cannot be seen on this night, it is also called as no moon night.
In many regions of India, people keep Amavasya Vrat and it is quite prevalent everywhere in India.
