The full moon, or Purnima, has inspired numerous folktales, poems, and astronomical significance around the world. The full moon day, or Purnima, is revered in Hinduism and is commonly seen as a sign of prosperity, richness, and fullness. According to the Hindu lunar calendar, Purnima, also known as Poornima, is a full moon day that happens at least once per month. The full moon day, which is seen as a benevolent and fortunate occurrence, coincides with a number of Hindu festivities in the panchang calendar.

It also signifies the conclusion of the Hindu month according to the Purnimanta calendar. Depending on the location and the moon's phases, it is also known as Pournami, Pournima, and Puranmasi.

At Namo Astro, you can easily get all the appropriate information on the "full moon tonight," "next full moon," and "moon cycle."

Importance Of Purnima

The Hindu holiday of Purnima is very important. Purnima, therefore, falls on significant occasions over the course of a year, as most of the festivals and dharmik anushthans usually fall on the day of Purnima.

The moon is in its full splendour and represents the lifting of darkness on a full moon day.

Usually, devotees perform Satyanarayan puja on this day.

Some of the Sanatan Hindu deities and Avatars are believed to have been born on this day.
