Importance of Dev Diwali On Kartik Purnima

The Kartik Purnima holds great importance in Sanatan Dharma because Kartik Purnima is associated with all the three lords- Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva.

According to the beliefs, it is said this is the day when Lord Shiva killed the demon Tripurasur and because of this, Devtas celebrated Diwali by lighting Diyas/lamps in heaven. Since then, the tradition of celebrating Dev Diwali is observed in Varanasi and the Ghats come alive with thousands of Diyas/lamps. It is believed that all deities descend on earth to welcome Lord Shiva.

For Vaishnava followers, the utmost importance is attached to Kartik Month, and giving donations on Kartik Purnima is considered to be highly auspicious. The festival of Tulasi Vivah which begins on the day of Dev Uthani Ekadashi comes ahead of the day of Kartik Purnima. As per Puranas, Tulsi Vivah can be performed on any day between Dev Utthani Ekadashi to Kartik Purnima and many people choose the day of Kartik Purnima to perform the marriage of Goddess Tulsi and Lord Shaligram, an iconic representation of Lord Vishnu.

It is said that on this day Pushkar Sarovar of Brahma Ji came to earth in Pushkar, Rajasthan. Pushkar Mela starts on Dev Utthani Ekadashi and continues till Kartik Purnima. This fair is held in honour of Lord Brahma whose temple is situated in Pushkar. Taking a spiritual bath in Pushkar lake on Kartik Purnima is considered fruitful.
