Legend of Vaishakh Amavasya
According to the legend related to the importance of Vaishakh Amavasya, there was a Brahmin named Dharmavarna. Once he heard from a Mahatma that in Kaliyuga, there is no work more virtuous than remembering the name of Lord Vishnu.
After this Dharmavarna left the worldly life and started traveling after taking sannyas. One day roaming around they reached Pitralok. There his ancestors were in great distress. The forefathers told that such a condition has happened because of your renunciation. Because there is no one to do Pind Daan for them.
The forefathers said that if you go back and start a household life, give birth to children and also do Pinddaan on the day of Vaishakh Amavasya according to the rules and regulations. Then we can get relief.
Dharmavarna promised him that he would fulfill his wish. After this, he left the life of a monk and again adopted the worldly life and on Vaishakh Amavasya, he got freedom from his forefathers by doing Pind Daan.
