About Sankatahara Chaturthi:

As per the Hindu Calendar, every lunar month is marked by two Chathurthi Tithis. One is the Sankatahara Chathurthi and the other is Vinayaka Chathurthi. Sankatahara Chaturthi 2015 occurs during Krishna Paksha on the full-moon day called pournami, whereas the other one which is Vinayaka Chathurthi, dawns immediately following Amavasai or the new moon day, at the time of Shukla Paksha.

Fasting During Sankatahara Chathurthi:

Fasting for Sankatahara Chathurthi is highly popular in the western part of the country i.e. Maharashtra and down south in Tamil Nadu. There are two schools of thought about the fasting ritual for Sankatahara Chathurthi. The Purnimant School are of the belief that Sankatahara Chathurthi occurs during the month of Magha, whereas believers from Amavasyant School consider this auspicious thithi to fall during Paush maasam, and hence fasting must be observed at that time. One more variation is the Angarki Chathurthi, referring to Sankatahara Chathurthi occurring on a Tuesday, and believed as highly favourable. Sankatahara Chathurthi during the Magha maasam also goes by the name of Sakat Chauth in North India.
