Sharad Purnima: Lunar eclipse is taking place on Sharad Purnima, know whether to offer kheer this time or not?


This time it is Sharad Purnima on 28th October, and on this day the last lunar eclipse of the year is also going to occur. Sharad Purnima is believed to be the day when the moon is full of its 16 phases and on this day the moon rains nectar. On this day, the tradition of preparing kheer in the moonlight and keeping it in front of the moon has been going on for centuries. On this occasion, it is also customary to consume Kheer as Prasad, which is believed to promote health and provide freedom from the adverse effects of the Moon. However, this time a lunar eclipse is also going to occur along with Sharad Purnima, which is creating a dilemma.


A lunar eclipse is going to occur in Aries..
Pandit Raja Acharya of the Vedic Pathshala of Gaya Ministry has said that the lunar eclipse is going to occur in Aries. Sharad Purnima is also celebrated on this day, and making kheer has special significance on the day of Sharad Purnima. Before making kheer, keep the milk you bring by adding basil leaves before the sutak starts. Before the lunar eclipse, i.e. during the Sutak period, if you keep the kheer in the moonlight, then make sure that you cook it for only this much time. Which should end before the eclipse starts, because it will get contaminated after the eclipse starts.

This is the time of the Sutak period
He said that before the Sutak period, prepare kheer and keep it at the temple or deity place and offer it to God. During the eclipse period, any food item becomes impure, hence it should not be consumed. In such a situation, it should be consumed before the Sutak period. The sutak of the lunar eclipse will start at 4:05 pm on October 28, while the eclipse will start at 01:05 am and Moksha will happen at 02:23 am.


Know what is the importance
Moonlight has special significance on the night of Sharad Purnima, and it is said that on this day there are some special elements present in the moonlight, which are pure and positive for our body. On this day, the Moon is very close to the Earth, due to which the Moon's light has a positive effect on the Earth. For financial wealth, Sharad Purnima has been prescribed as the night vigil in the scriptures, and for this reason, it is also called the night of Ko-Jagruti or Kojagara. Ko Jagruti and Kojagara mean who is awake, and it is an important night of worship and vigil.
