Legend of Ashwin Purnima

As per the well-known legend of Purnima, it is said that there used to be a money lender in ancient times. The lender had two daughters. Both the daughters would observe Purnima fast. Where one daughter would observe the fast with pure intention and true devotion, the other would end in the middle. 

Both of them got married with the passage of time. The daughter, who observed the fast with clear intention, gave birth to a lovely and beautiful child. The other one who ended the fast in between could not give birth to a child and if by chance, any child was born to her, would die in infancy. This went on for a long time. In the end, after being sick and tired of everything, she showed her horoscope to a noted brahmin to know the reason behind.

Then the Brahmins told her that since she would end her Purnima fast in the middle, it was the reason for her troubles. Then, the girl asked what had to be done in that situation. The Brahmins advised her to observe the fast of Purnima of Ashwin month with utmost dedication and proper rituals. The daughter of the money-lender did as suggested.

After some time, the girl was blessed with a child again but this time, the child remained alive for a few days. Then, the girl put the child on a plank and covered the dead body with a cloth, and went to bring her sister. She gave the same plank to her sister on which the dead body of the child was lying. 

The elder sister was about to sit on the plank, she touched the cloth covering the child, and just then the child cried. Seeing this, the elder sister got astonished and told her sister that she wanted to put the blame on her for the death of the child. Further, the elder sister said, “What would have happened to the child, if I had sat.”

The younger sister told the elder one that the child had already died but it has got its breath again only with her touch. Since then, the influence of Purnima fast spread across the town and everybody in the town started observing fast with due rituals.
