Sharad Poornima, also known as Kojaagari Poornima, is celebrated on a full moon day of the Hindu lunar month of Ashwin (September-October). It is also known as Kaumudi (moonlight) celebration, as on this day, the Moon showers amrit or elixir of life on earth through its rays. The brightness of the full moon brings special joy and marks the changing season, the end of the monsoon. It was also on this night over 5,000 years ago that Lord Krishna and Radhaji revealed the Supreme Divine bliss to innumerable Gopis in Vrindavan.

Medical Significance:

It is considered that the Moon and the Earth are at a closer distance on Sharad Poornima night. Due to this, the rays of the moon have several curative properties. Keeping food under the moonlight nourishes both the body and the soul. Following are some health tips which we all can benefit from during Sharad Poornima.

For Happiness & Good Health All the Year round :

On Sharad Poonam, make kheer of Rice, Milk, Mishri in the evening. Put some gold or silver for sometime while making Kheer; then place it in the Moonlight for about 2-3 hours from about 8:30 PM onwards. Don’t cook any other food for that night, only eat Kheer. We should not take heavy diet in late night, hence eat Kheer accordingly. The Kheer which is placed in Sharad Poonam night can also be taken in next day break-fast after making it asPrasad by offering it to the Lord.

Tips for Improving Eyesight :

Do Tratak on Moon for 15-20 minutes in the night from Dussehra to Sharad Poornima. To look with a constant gaze without blinking the eye lids, is called Tratak.

To be free from Eye troubles & for eyes to work properly whole year, try to put thread in a needle in Sharad Poonam Moonlight. (No other light should be nearby).

Do Jaagran on Sharad Poonam Night :

Sharad Poonam Night is very beneficial for spiritual upliftment, hence one should try & do Jaagran on this night, i.e. as possible don’t sleep and do JapDhyan Kirtan on this holy night.
