Sankashti always falls on exactly the fourth day after the full moon day of every month. Many of us follow it by fasting the whole day in various ways to suit one’s convenience. Many of them follow only that Sankashti which falls on Tuesdays, it is Lord Ganapathi’s day. There is a belief that if a person follows Tuesday’s Sankashti, it is as good as having followed 21 Sankashtis.
In this post I am putting up the exact dates and days on which Sankashti falls each month in the coming year. If there are any changes, I will update this post. I have also mentioned moon-rise times for those days since people have their dinner only after the moon rise. In this year, there is only one Tuesday Sankashti, which falls in March 2008.
