Every year Sharad Purnima or Kojagiri Purnima is celebrated on the next day of Chaturdashi tithi of Shukla Paksha of Ashwin month. This year Sharad Purnima is on 28th October. Also, the last Lunar eclipse of 2023 is going to occur on Sharad Purnima Tithi. Lunar eclipse will be visible in India; therefore, Sutak will also be considered. According to the Panchang, Purnima Tithi will start at 04:17 a.m. on October 28 (as per the English calendar) and end at 01:53 a.m. the next day on October 29.

Sharad Purnima has special significance in Sanatan Dharma. Ganga bath is taken on this day. Along with this, worship, chanting, and donations are also done. To attain success in a special task, devotees also keep a fast for Lord Vishnu on the full moon day. Apart from this, Shri Satyanarayan Puja is also performed on Purnima Tithi. Overall, Sharad Purnima is very auspicious. There is a religious belief that by worshiping Lord Vishnu on the full moon day, the devotee gets sure results. Also, sorrow and distress go away. Come, let us know how the Lunar eclipse affects Sharad Purnima and how to worship, etc. in this article.

The night of Sharad Purnima is important in many ways. While it is considered the beginning of autumn and it is even said in the Puranas that even the gods themselves come to earth to admire its beauty. There is a religious belief that on the night of Sharad Purnima, nectar rains from the sky. For this reason, people prepare kheer and keep it in the moonlight throughout the night, so that after taking a bath in the morning and eating it as prasad, they can become healthy.

As per the astrologers, prepare kheer before the Sutak period of the eclipse begins. On this day, before the start of Sutak, add basil leaves to the kheer. You can keep this kheer in the moonlight before the lunar eclipse begins. But, keep in mind that before the eclipse starts, remove the Kheer from there. Before the lunar eclipse i.e., during the Sutak period, if you keep the kheer in the moonlight, then keep in mind that you should make only so much kheer that it will be finished before the eclipse starts.
