Pournami 2020 Fasting or Pournami Viratham

Pournami 2020 fasting on Chaturdashi occurs only when Pournami 2020 starts during Madhyahna period on previous day. It is believed that if Chaturdashi prevails beyond Madhyahna then it pollutes Pournami / Purnima Tithi and this Chaturdashi day should not be considered for Pournami / Purnima fasting even if Pournami / Purnima prevails during evening. There are no two opinions on this rule.

In North India full moon day is known as Pournami or Purnima. However in South India full moon day is known as Pournami or Pournima and fasting on this day is known as Pournami Viratham. Pournami Viratham is observed from sunrise to till sighting of the moon.

Pournami Fasting days might not be same for two locations. Hence one should set the location before noting down Pournami Viratham dates.

Difference between Amavasai / Amavasya and Pournami / Purnima

  • As per Hindu lunar calendar, Pournami / Purnima is called full moon day while Amavasai / Amavasya is called no moon day or new moon day
  • When the moon is completely exposed to the sun, it is called Pournami / Purnima, and when the earth completely blocks the moon from the sun, it is called Amavasai / Amavasya
  • As we all know that the moon revolves around the earth, and the time taken by the moon to complete one rotation around the earth is called a lunar month. During this period, New moon (Amavasai / Amavasya) and full moon (Pournami / Purnima) occur and are separated by 14.765295 days in between
  • Evil powers and negative forces reign during Amavasai / Amavasya. On the contrary, positive forces and divine energy rule during Pournami / Purnima. Hence, this is the reason, Pournami / Purnima is considered to be highly auspicious in the Hindu tradition.
