Anaghashtami Vrata (Anagha Vratham) is an auspicious vratam dedicated to Lord Dattatreya and Goddess Lakshmi who are none other than Anagha Swamy & Anagha Devi. In 2024, Anaghashtami date is January 4.
It is even more auspicious if the devotee performs the vratha under ‘Ashwatha Vriksha’ (Banyan Tree).
Though Ashtami in Krishna Paksha of each Hindu month is auspicious to observe Anaghashtami vrata, Margashirsha month is considered even more auspicious.
‘Anagha’ means the ‘sinless’ and the main purpose of Anaghashtami vratham is to cleanse ourselves from sins and clear the way to salvation.
