Date and Time of Basant celebration 2020

Purvahna Kala is known to be the time between sunrise and the mid-afternoon and that time will decide the auspicious day. Basant Panchami celebrations begin when Panchami Tithi prevails during the Purvahna Kala. That is also one of the reasons why this day may also fall on Chaturthi Tithi.

Many people and astrologers consider this day to be auspicious to initiate good work. According to this belief, this day is considered to be auspicious to perform Devi Saraswati Puja. Although there is no specific time to carry out the puja, it is advised to do when the Panchami Tithi is prevailing. Many times the Tithi does not prevail for a whole day and hence it becomes important to perform the puja within appropriate timings.
