Full Moon Havan

Purnima, the full moon day, is considered auspicious in the Hindu Calendar and most devotees observe fast throughout the day and pray to the presiding deity. It is ideal to fast or take light food on full moon and new moon days.

The harmful influences that trouble and hinder the spirit become subdued during pournami.
Hindus, Buddhists and Jains undertake vows, rites and rituals on full moon days for spiritual enlightenment as well as the appeasement of ancestral spirits. It is well known that the great Buddha got enlightenment on a full moon day. The ancient sage Vyasa, who compiled the Vedas, was born on a full moon day. This day is celebrated as Guru Purnima throughout India.
The moon represents the creative energy in living beings
Pournami prayers help to cleanse the soul
The full moon is a high point in nature's process – marking a completion of the lunar cycle of waxing and setting the stage for the next cycle of waning. For human beings also it thus becomes an opportune time to either start new initiatives or to bring to culmination ongoing ones.
