Sashti 2018 | Sashti Viratham 2018 dates

Subramanya Swamy

Subramanya Swamy

Sashti is the sixth day after Purnima (Full Moon) or Amavasya (No Moon) in Hindu calendar. Monthly Sashti 2018 dates are given here. Sashti viratham is an auspicious vratham dedicated to Lord Subramanya or Murugan.

Skanda Sashti is the most popular festival observed in Aippasi month of Tamil calendar. Devotees observe fasting on Sashti day and worship Murugan with shodashopachara puja.

Though both the sashti vrathams that come in every month are important, devotees consider Shashti viratham which falls after No Moon or Amavasya as significant one.
