Vat Savitri Amavasya Vrat 2012 Date | Vat Savitri Amavasya - May 20

Married women observe Vat Amavasya puja for the well being of their husbands and for a prosperous and happy family life.

 Vat Amavasya is based on the famous Savitri – Satyavan legend in the Mahabharat. In North India, Vat Puja is observed on the Jyeshta Amavasi day (no moon day).

 Vat Savitri Vrat fasting is for three days. It begins on the Trayodashi day and ends on Amavasi – the fast is for three nights and ends on the fourth day. Prayers and pujas are dedicated to Vat Vriksha (Banyan Tree) and Savitri.

But nowadays most women only fast on the Amavasi day.
