Budha Ashtami Yogam

Some combinations of tithis(dates) and days are considered very auspicious.

Examples are:
  • Saptami tithi + Sunday
  • Ashtami tithi + Wednessday
  • Amavasya tithi + Monday
In this article I would discuss about the Ashtami tithi plus Wednesday  Combination. It is known as BudhaAshtami.

Traditionally, on this day durga devi is worshiped. Keeping a fast on this day removes previous janam sins.

Also, it is effective for Budh graha dosh removal. People with afflicted bhudh in their horoscopes or people who are running budh grah mahadasha/antardasha should fast on this day or worship budha deva.
