Significance of Sharad Purnima

The Purnima falling in the Ashwin month is also called Sharad Purnima, which is also known as Kojagar Purnima or Kojagar Puja. It is believed that on this day, the Moon spreads its rays with 16 Kalas and showers nectar, and this is the very reason that having Chandra Darshan on this night is extremely fruitful. Along with this, worshipping the Moon on this day brings peace, prosperity, and tranquillity in life. 

The devotees who worship Maa Mahalakshmi on this day are blessed with infinite riches. As per the Puranas, Mata Mahalaxmi is Moon’s sister, and therefore, she is worshipped on the day of Sharad Purnima and those who perform her Puja are blessed with immense wealth and remain under her grace.

Wearing white coloured clothes on this day brings auspicious fruits. Also, making Kheer of rice Poha at night or soaking rice Poha in the milk, keeping them in the moonlight, and consuming it in the form of Prasada on the next morning gives fruitful results.

Doubtful Situation on Sharad Purnima This Year

It is evident that Sharad Purnima is observed only on the day of Ashwin Purnima, but this year, Sharad Purnima is being celebrated for two days due to some calculations in the Panchang, which appears to be quite unusual. Some major reasons behind it are as follows: Chandrodaya Vyapini Purnima is considered for Vrat Purnima. According to it, this year, on 19th October, there will be Chaturdashi Tithi in the morning, and Purnima Tithi will start at 7:05 in the evening. On 19th October, Moon will rise at 5:30 in the evening, and only after that Purnima tithi will commence. However, on the night of Purnima i.e. October 19, the Moon will be full. Due to this, many natives are celebrating Sharad Purnima on October, 19 and are also observing the fast.

The other perspective is that many people celebrate the Purnima according to the position of the Sun. With this, when the Sun will rise on 20th October, that will indicate the presence of Purnima Tithi in it, and on 20th October, the moonrise will be at 5:50 pm, while the Purnima Tithi will remain till 8:28 pm. So, the Purnima will be as per the Sunrise and when the Moon appears, it will also be a Purnima Tithi, and that is why majority of the people are celebrating Sharad Purnima on 20th October.

If you want to prepare Kheer and keep it in the moonlight so that the nectar-like rays of the full moon can fall on it, then do it on the night of October 19. However, those who want to observe a fast can do so on October 20. 

We have provided you with all the information. Now, we leave it on you to think which day you choose to celebrate Sharad Purnima. However, we will also like to mention that calculations vary in different kinds of Panchangs, and it should be resolved unanimously so that such problems do not recur, and common people can celebrate the festival and observe the fast without any hesitation.
