Significant powertimes

As we saw earlier, there are several powertimes, each possessing unique characteristics and power to influence a particular scheme of things in your life. Here we will be discussing some of the significant Spiritual powertimes and the ways they could impact your life.


Pournami means full Moon in Sanskrit. It is the fifteenth day of the lunar phase, in which the Moon reaches the final stage in the Shukla Paksha. This day is considered very auspicious to commence any new work or business. Many important festivals fall on Purnima days; Guru Purnima, Kartik Purnima, Buddha Purnima, etc., are some examples. This powertime is also an ideal time to worship Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. Many devotees follow the practice of fasting during the Pournami days.


Amavasya is a vital powertime with great significance. It marks the beginning of Shukla Paksha of the lunar month. As per the Hindu belief, Amavasya is a perfect day to perform Shraddha ceremonies to please ancestors. Hindus believe that the departed forefathers come down to the earth and visit their descendants on this day. Of all the Amavasya, the Mahalaya Amavasya has great significance. Amavasya falling on Monday is known as Somvati Amavasya, and Amavasya falling on Saturday is known as Shani Amavasya.

Usually, it is not advisable to start any activity new on an Amavasya day. Moreover, consuming non-vegetarian food has to be avoided.


The time present between one and half hours before and after the sunset is known as Pradosham. Though this time occurs every day, the Pradhosham time of the triyodashi day is believed to be very auspicious. Pradosham powertime is ideal to worship Lord Shiva and Lord Narasimha. Moreover, it is a perfect time to pray for spiritual advancement and material accomplishments. Pradosham falling on a Saturday is referred to as Shani Pradosham and is considered more auspicious.


Ekadashi is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘Eleven’; it is the eleventh day of two fortnights of the waxing and waning Moon in the lunar month. Ekadashi is considered very auspicious for the worship of Lord Maha Vishnu. Therefore, vaishnavite devotees all over the world observe Ekadashi Vratham (fast) on this day. It is believed that fasting on Ekadashi would bestow peace, harmony, and prosperity upon you.


Shasti occurs on the sixth day of each lunar fortnight; thus, there are two occurrences of Shasti every month. The Shasti powertime falling during the Krishna Paksha fortnight is ideal for invoking Lord Subrahmanya or Lord Murugan. Devotees of Lord Muruga fast during these days and end their fast at the end of the day after praying to Lord Muruga. Of all the Shasti days of a year, the Skanda Sashti falling on the sixth day of the Shukla paksha in the month of Kartika (October – November) is significant. Lord Murugan devotees all over the world observe the Skanda Shasti with great pomp and grandeur.
