Ashunya Shayan Vrat – Ashunya Sayana Vrata

Ashunya Shayan Vrat, also known as Ashunya Sayana Dwitiya, is an observance dedicated to Bhagavan Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi. Ashunya Shayan Vrata is observed in the Shravan month (July – August) in the traditional calendar followed in North India. In some regions it is observed in the Ashada or Bhadrapad or Kartik Month (November).

It is believed that those who observe Ashunya Shayan Vrat will attain material progress and prosperity. A story mentioned in the Narada Purana narrates how a poor man was born as King in his next birth as a result of performing Ashunya Sayana Dwitiya Vrat.

Ashunya Shayan Vrat is observed during different time in a year. It is usually observed on the first or second day of Krishna Paksha (waning or dark phase of moon) in Ashada or Sawan or Bhadrapad or Kartik Month.
