For Rapid Spiritual Advancement
Pujya Bapuji said that doing japa and meditation (dhyan) on Somvati Amavasya is lakh times more beneficial as compared to doing the same on any other day. He further mentioned that performing japa and meditation on SomvatiAmavasya would afford the same high religious merits as doing them on the supremely holy nights of Diwali, Holi, Shivratri, Janmashtami or during an eclipse.
Pujya Bapuji has advised that for reaping rich spiritual benefits, a sadhak should try & practice the following on Somvati Amavasya:
i. Observe Maun (silence) or speak as little as possible
ii. Devote maximum time to japa & meditation (dhyan)
iii. If possible, do upvaas (fast) and stay only on milk.
iv. Sleep on the ground on Somvati Amavasya and on the night before as well.
v. On the night before Somvati Amavasya, the sadhak should make a firm resolve, “Tomorrow, I will observe maun (silence), study the holy scriptures & other Satsang books like Divya Prerna Prakash,Jeevan Vikas & Ishvar ki Or, and will engage myself constantly in japa and meditation.”
Imoprtant Note :
Pujya Bapuji advised that if a lady is in her menstruation period, she is exempted from the above tips. But all other sadhaks should definitely perform worship of the Lord and circumambulation of the Tulsi plant on Somvati Amavasya, setting aside all their other tasks. This will afford rich financial, intellectual and spiritual benefits to the sadhak.
