Chitra Pournami 2023: What Is It’s Significance And Rituals?
Chitra Pournami is a well-known Hindu festival celebrated on the 1st full Moon day of Chithirai. This auspicious day is dedicated to Lord Chitragupta, who keeps the records of good and bad karmas of person. We celebrate Chitra Pournami when the Sun is exalted in the Aries sign, and the Moon is in the Libra, facing towards the bright star, Chitra. On this day, devotees take a dip in the holy river to get rid of their past sins.
This full moon day is said to be the perfect time to worship God Chitragupta. It is said that whoever feeds the poor on this day may reduce their bad karmas. This important festival of Tamilnadu arrives with an opportunity to wash out our sins. This auspicious day also marks the birth anniversary of Lord Chitragupta. And therefore, many people worship Lord Chitragupta with full devotion.
