    Helpful Tips on Sanatana Dharma / Hindu Principles - 87The month starting the end of Pushya masa and before the beginning of Phalguna masa is known as MAGHA MASA. According to sage NARADA month occurs in three ways ..

    1. From poornima to poornima it is knwon as poornimaantamasa : In this type pushya poornima to magha poornima is known as MAGHA MASA

    2. From amavasya to amavasya is known as amavasyantamaas : In this krama pushya amavasya to magha amavasya will be magha masa. Both above are chandra maana masa.

    3. From one solar ingress to another solar ingress is known as saurmasa : In this krama the month starting from makar sankranti to kumbha sankranti is known as magha masa. This is saura maana masa.

    In these three types of magha masa, one can choose any one as per their tradition or can choose all the three types of months for snana which will give immense punya.

    In this month rivers keep saying aloud from arunoday time till suryodaya i.e during early morning "Please come take bath, we shall relieve you of all sins. Lets see who is lucky among you, who is the fortunate one!".

    All and everyone from small kids to the eldest should take bath during magha masa in a river (running water). This will give all sorts of desires to the one who takes bath.

    While doing this snana, one should not cover oneself with sweater or blanket while going to the river. If one gets trouble by the cold wind then one must resist such a cold weather and continue the snana. One must never try to get rid of cold during the snana. If one does the snana in this manner taking the cold into ones stride, with each step he takes towards river while going and coming from river ONE GETS ASHWAMEDHA YAGNYA punya for each step. One should not use fire agni before or after snana, to relieve oneself from cold weather.

    After getting purified i.e bathing, one has to offer Ganga Aarti with 108 lamps, but it is not possible to light 108 lamps at a time due wind and other reasons. Hence offer it with lighting 108 puffed wicks. The wicks must be soaked in ghee before lighting it.

    If this procedure is followed with full devotion, all your karmas, sins and sins done by ancestors knowingly of unknowingly or any kind of doshas will be relieved. Follow this procedure every year or when you find time. It must be a continuous process.
