Nav Samvatsar Pratipada (For making your new year auspicious for you)
According to Hindu calendar the Pratipada of bright half of the month of Chaitra is considered the first day of new Vikrami Samvat. New Year begins on this day. According to Sri Bramhapurana Bramhaji considered this day as most auspicious and therefore, he created our universe on this day. Navratras for worshipping Goddess Durga also start-from this day only.
Method Have your bath and wear new clothes and recite following Mantra to appease Lord Bramha after doing his Shodshopchar Pooja (worship with 16 auspicious articles) and receive blessings so that new year turns auspicious for you. Establish a flag at your house that day. Call some erudite astrologer and get predictions for you. Donate Ephemeries (Panchang). Offer food to your astrologer for getting the blessings of God.
