Shukla Paksha & Krishna Paksha in Hindu calendar

Shukla Paksha is a waxing phase of lunar month whereas Krishna Paksha is the waning phase of a lunar month as per Hindu calendar.

According to the Hindu religious and traditional calendar, Shukla paksha largely refers to the bright lunar waxing or fortnight moon. In Sanskrit language the word Shukla means “white”. It is to be noted that Shukla Paksha happens for a period of 15 days. It begins on the day of Shukla Amavasya that is known as New Moon day and ends on the day of Poornima that is full moon day. These days are considered to be very auspicious.

Most of the Hindu festivals happen in this particular period such as Navratri festivals, Chaitra Navratri and Ashvin Navratri. Here are the dates of Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha. The day, tithi, festivals and months are given in details.
