New Delhi: The last day of Ashwin month is very special. On this day, the most special Purnima (Sharad Purnima) festival of the year is celebrated. This year Sharad Purnima is on 9 October 2022, Sunday. Sharad Purnima is also called Rasa Purnima and Kojagari Purnima because on this day Shri Krishna made Maharasa with the gopis.
It is said that the moon is very close to the earth on the night of Sharad Purnima. On this day, at midnight, Maa Lakshmi visits the earth and relieves the sufferings of her devotees. This day is considered very important for wealth gain and there is a law to keep kheer under the open sky at night. Let’s know the importance of kheer on Sharad Purnima.
Sharad Purnima Kheer Benefit
On the night of Sharad Purnima, the moon, complete with its 16 arts, showers nectar. According to Srimad Bhagavata Mahapurana, the moon is considered as the god of medicine.
Moonlight is considered very beneficial for health, so on the night of Sharad Purnima, kheer made of rice and milk is kept under the open sky so that the rays of the moon fall on the kheer and its medicinal properties are obtained by consuming it.
Keeping kheer in a silver vessel and consuming it on Sharad Purnima doubles immunity and destroys all diseases. There is also a scientific reason behind eating in silverware. According to research, silver has a high immunity, which keeps viruses away. This kheer is considered as amrit.
It is believed that consuming kheer on Sharad Purnima gives rejuvenating power. The influence of the moon is more on Sharad Purnina night between 10-12 o’clock. Moon darshan must be done at this time. It is said that eye problems, asthma, and other diseases are eliminated on the one who gets the rays of the moon at this time.
Eating kheer on Kojagari Purnima is a symbol of the fact that winter has arrived. In such a situation, consuming hot food will provide health benefits. After the weather cools down, consuming hot things keeps energy in the body.
