Light Diyas on Kartik Purnima, be Blessed with God's Grace

Tomorrow, on Friday, November 23, 2018, Kartik Purnima will be celebrated all across the globe. The full moon day that comes in the month of Karthik (October-November) during the Shukla phase is called Kartik Purnima.

http://www.astrosage.com/offer/trikal-samhita.asp?prtnr_id=BLGEN

It is believed that this day Lord Shiva killed the demon named Tripurasur. Hence, the day is also called Tripuri Purnima. If the day coincides with Kritika Nakshatra, it is called Mahakartiki. If the constellation or nakshatra is Bharani, it yields beautiful results. If its Rohini Nakshatra, it will increase its significance to a manifold.

Muhurat for Kartik Purnima in New Delhi, India
November 22, 2018
Begins at 12:55:50
November 23, 2018
Concludes at 11:11:15

As per Hindu religious system, on the evening of Kartik Purnima, Lord Vishnu took an avatar (incarnation) called matsya avatar (fish). This day, if your take a bath in the river Ganges, and donate lamps it is considered equivalent to ten yajnas altogether. Considering the auspiciousness of the day, it is designated as a festival of great importance by Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva, Angira and Aditya. The day is also called Dev Deepawali.

Significance of Kartik Purnima


This is one of the purest days in the whole year. Full Moon day in itself is auspicious and when linked with the month of Kartik where donations, charity and taking a holy bath are of great importance, it becomes even more significant. It is said that on this day if Moon is in Kritika nakshatra and Sun in Vishaka nakshatra, Padmaka yoga is formed. This is a very rare and auspicious yoga. If in the similar state of Moon, Jupiter also coincides, it is called Mahapurnima. This day, in the evening, if you donate light, you will be freed from the cycle of birth and death.


Fast and Rituals


As per common beliefs, on Kartik Purnima, ganga snan or taking a holy dip along with donating lamps, performing yajnas and worshipping God are inevitable. The whole proceedings for the day are as follows:

  • Take a pledge for the fast when you wake up in the morning. Then take a bath in a holy river, pond or pool.
  • When the moon rises, one must worship the Kritikas namely Shiva, Sambhooti, Santati (children), Preeti (love), Anusuiyya, and Chama (forgiveness).
  • At night, a fast is observed and the donation of a bull is considered most beneficial. Lord Shiva blesses you with a special position in his court. 
  • Cow, Elephant, Horse, Chariot and Ghee must be donated as it brings prosperity and growth in wealth.
  • If you give the offerings of sheep on this day, the sufferings caused by different yoga gets over.
  • From the day of Kartik Purnima, if you keep a fast on every consecutive Purnima, and a Jagran is observed, all your wishes come true. 
  • Those who hold a fast on this day must offer food to needy and have a Havana in their home. 
  • This day, if you take a bath in river Yamuna and worship Radha-Krishna along with donating lamps, all your wishes come true.

Legend behind Kartik Purnima


According to mythology, in ancient times there was a demon named Tripurasur. He performed a difficult religious austerity at Prayagraj. His fierceness and dedication in worshipping his Lord made the living beings as well as Devtas scared. In such a scenario, Devtas had to plan to create some disturbance in his prayers. Beautiful fairies or apsaras were sent but in vain. Lord Brahma, being happy with such tough prayer, visited him and presented him with a boon.

The boon he asked was that - I must not die by the hands of devtas or humans. Since he was blessed with the same, he was fearless and started hurting other beings. His overconfidence made him attack even Kailash and lead to a battle between him and Lord Shiva. Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu helped Lord Shiva in annihilating the powerful beast.

AstroSage wishes you a Happy Kartik Purnima and Happy Guru Nanak Birthday!

He promised to goddess that he will find a solution to it. Meanwhile, Vedas were stolen by Sankhyayan, a demon. Lord Vishnu then went to bring back the Vedas and was so tired afterwards that he slept for 4 months. This was termed as Yoga Nidra. Those 4 months are considered inauspicious in Hindu religion and no ceremony is carried out during this phase.

Why is Tulsi Vivah carried out on Devutthana Ekadashi?


As per a legend, Tulsi was the wife of a demon named Jalandhar. She was called Brinda or Vrinda. Since she was a devoted wife, it was impossible to kill Jallandher in the battlefield. Devtas insisted to Lord Vishnu to find a solution. He then had to take the disguise of Jalandhar and come to Vrinda. She on knowing the truth, after her husband was killed in the fight, cursed Lord Vishnu. Since Lord Vishnu himself was guilt-ridden, he declared that Vrinda is as pure as a virgin and she in the form of a plant shall be married to him. Since then, it is accustomary to carry out Tulsi Vivah or the marriage of tulsi to Lord Vishnu. The ritual is of immense significance and considered equivalent to a performing a Kanyadaan.

AstroSage wishes you a Happy & Auspicious Dev Uthani Ekadashi.

Circumambulation of Govardhan


On the occasion of this festival, circumambulating around Govardhan Hill is considered of great significance. This is the reason that on this day every year, lakhs of pilgrims travel to the sacred place Govardhan, a pilgrimage site located in Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh. Govardhan Parikrama stretches to a total of 21 kms, and every person, according to their reverence, performs this activity. One can walk all the way to the end or use a vehicle. After completing the Parikrama, devotees worship at the Giriraj temple situated on the Govardhan mountain.

Annakoot festival is observed before 12 o'clock on the day of Govardhan Puja. Annakoot means 'a heap of grain'. The food made from Kharif crops is offered to Lord Krishna, and then the Kharif harvest is put to use.

Mythological Story Behind Govardhan Puja


According to mythological beliefs, Devraj Indra once became proud of his powers and due to this, Lord Krishna decided to destroy his arrogance. According to the legend described in Vishnu Purana, Gokul natives used to happily worship Indra Dev in hopes of flourishing rain and green harvest. But once Krishna said that people should worship the Govardhan mountain for good rain and cattle fodder. By agreeing to Krishna’s point, Gokul natives started worshiping the Govardhan Hill.

Hearing this, Devraj Indra got angry and ordered for heavy rainfall as a revenge for this insult. In order to protect Gokul, Lord Krishna lifted the Govardhan mountain on his little finger. When Lord Indra came to know that Lord Shri Krishna himself is protecting the natives of Gokul, he apologized and offered his prayers. Since then, Govardhan Puja began.
