The Ashwin Purnima has its own significance. During the year only on the Ashwin Purnima the moon is of 16th kalas. This is the reason why the moon of this night is considered to be the purest and its rays are considered as amruth. This purnima of Shukla Paksha is also called Sharad Purnima. This Purnima falls in the month of Ashwin. In some parts of the country it is considered as komudi fast and in some places it is also known as the kojagar fast. On this day, something is prepared from the milk and is kept in direct rays of the moon light so that the rays of the moon can fall directly on the Kheer and make it Amruth. The theory which is equal to the Amruth is considered very blissful and beneficial.

On the day of Ashwin Purnima the moon comes close to earth. During the Ashwin Purnima, the atmosphere is so clean and good. That is why it is considered very auspicious if the moon rise falls on the body on this day. The Holy Bath starts from Sharad Purnima and the fasting should also begin from this time. The women observe the fast especially for the children and worship god for their wishes. Goddess Lakshmi was incarnated on the day of Ashwin Purnima, therefore worship of Lakshmi Mata is important to attain wealth. If there is a Chandra dosh in the Kundli then it is considered that after having kheer as prasad all the dosh vanishes.
The story of two Sisters is prevalent on Ashwin Purnima. During the ancient times there were two sisters one of which used to observe the Ashwin Purnima fast with full dedication and rituals and the other sister broke her fast in the middle itself. Time passed by and both of them got married. When both the sisters used to give birth, the child of the eldest sister would take birth healthy but the child of the younger sister would die after being born. Many times this happened then at that time, a Maharishi asked the younger sister to observe the fast of Ashwin Purnima. Even after observing the fast the child was born dead. Then she tied it in a bundle of cloth and put it on a corner. When her elder sister came to visit her she asked her to sit on the same bundle. As soon as the elder sister touched that bundle the child came alive and started crying. This was due to her constant observance of the Ashwin Purnima fast.
