Sharad Purnima शरद पूर्णिमा 

The first full moon day of the month of Ashwin is known as Sharad Purnima. It is also referred to as Rasa Purnima, or Sharath Purnima. The festival is also referred as Kaumudi Festival, Kaumudi meaning moonlight.

The bright light on this full moon day marks the changing season, the end of monsoon.

The dazzling night is associated with the divine love filled Raas Lila (Expression of love by graceful dance) of Lord Krishna with Radha and Gopis.

This mythological past related to Sharad Purnima, makes it the best time to manifest love between couples. The day is also referred as Rasa Purnima or Raas Lila Day.

Sharad Poornima is also known as Kojagari Poornima. It is believed that on this night Goddess Lakshmi visits from place to place asking “Kojagari??” meaning “Who is awake” and bless those who are found awake.
Hence people don’t sleep this night and spend whole night by playing games, singing and doing all amusing activities.

" शरद पूर्णिमा आज चन्द्रमा के प्रकाश में कुछ देर बैठें और लाभ लें .आज { 29 Oct. } आश्विन मास की पूर्णिमा है , इसे शरद पूर्णिमा भी कहते हैं , इस रात को चन्द्रमा अपनी किरणों द्वारा अमृत की वर्षा करता है . आज की रात चांदनी में बैठने का बोहुत महत्त्व है , आज के दिन रात में खीर बना कर उसे चन्द्रमा की किरणों में रख देने से उस खीर में औषधीय गुण आ जाते हैं , अगले दिन ये खीर खायी जाये , प्रसाद रूप में , आँखों की रौशनी बढ़ने के लिए भी आज की रात लाभदायी है , चन्द्रमा की रौशनी में सुई में धागा डालने से नेत्र विकार दूर होते हैं , चन्द्रमा को बिना पलक झपकाए देखने से भी लाभ होता है , आज के ही दिन भगवान् श्री कृष्ण ने गोपियों के साथ महारास लीला की थी , अर्थात गोपियों को परमात्मा का साक्षात्कार हुआ था , जीव का परमात्मा से मिलन ही महारास है . ॐ ॐ"
