Maghāmāvasī (मघामावसी) is the name of a festival that once existed in ancient Kashmir (Kaśmīra) as mentioned in the Nīlamatapurāṇa. Maghāmāvasī proceeds as follows: The dark 15th of Bhādrapada conjoined with pitṛ constellation is dedicated to the worship of seven groups of manes.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
