Sashti February 2019 Date – Shashti Fasting – Muruga Shasti Fasting in February 2019


Sashti Viratham, or Muruga Shasti, is a fasting day dedicated to Hindu God Muruga. Shashti falls on the sixth day after Amavasai (no moon) and Pournami (full moon) in a month in traditional Hindu calendar. Sashti February 2019 date is February 11 (Monday).

The Shasti day after Amavasi is considered highly auspicious by Muruga devotees and many observe a fast on the day.

Muruga is also known as Skanda, Shanmugha and Subramanian. In North India, Muruga is known as Kartik or Kartikeya. Shasti Fasting is widely observed in South India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Singapore especially by Tamilians and Malayalis.

Sashti Viratham is considered highly auspicious and many Muruga devotees observe a 24-hour fast, while some take a single meal on the day. Devotees visit Lord Muruga temples from early morning and some people only eat the Prasadam given from the temple.

Some Muruga temples conduct special pujas and spiritual discourses. There are also temples that provide food to devotees on the day.
