Purnima is a full moon day. Every month it occurs, and it is considered to be an auspicious day. Purnima represents prosperity, abundance, and fullness. So, our elders usually advise us to start any new things or buying any items on Purnima. Scientifically, the Moon’s location concerning the earth exerts a first magnetic pull on the planet on this Purnima day, and it results in a natural surge of upward movement in the body.
On this day, due to this reaction, the blood circulation in the brain increases and it is believed that the inherent quality becomes more enhanced on this auspicious day. This is otherwise called as Pournami in South India. This day has a significant association with Lord Vishnu, and Satyanarayana Pooja is performed on this day. Fasting is also observed throughout the day.
This day encompasses lots of scientific and religious significances. Our Hindu mythology says many gods such as Subrahmanya, Sri Buddha and Lord Vishnu’s Matsyavatar incarnated or took birth on this auspicious day. The pujas done on the day is valued for great merits. Science ensures during the full moon day, the gravity effect will be at the peak, and it invokes positive effects such as reducing gastric issues, increasing stability in metabolism and gives a balanced body-mind.
Don’t forget to chant this mantra at least 108 times on the pournami
Om tryambakam yajamahe
Sugandhim pushti vardhanam
Mrityon moksheeya maamritat
