🥥Coconut Day - नारली पूर्णिमा

Narali Purnima Date: Thursday, 31 August 2023
Narali Purnima

The word Narali means coconut and Purnima means full moon day. Coconut has an important purpose on this day. The festival of Narali Purnima coincides with other festivals such as Shravani Purnima, Raksha Bandhan and Kajari Purnima. Although the traditions and cultures may differ, the significance of the festivals remains the same. In North India, the festival of Rakhi is celebrated on the day of Raksha Bandhan i.e. on the full moon of Shravan, while in South India the festival of Coconut Purnima is celebrated in the coastal regions.

On the day of Narali Purnima, devotees worship Bhagwan Varun. Coconut is offered to the god of the sea on this occasion. It is believed that performing puja rituals on Shravan Purnima can please Bhagwan Varuna. Devotees seek protection from all dangers of the sea. The Upanayana and Yagnopaveet rituals are among the most widely followed rituals. Devotees also worship Bhagwan Shiva on Narali Purnima as it is believed that the three eyes of the coconut are a representation of the three-eyed Bhagwan Shiva.

In South India, every section of society celebrates this festival in its own way. On this day the wearers of the thread change their thread. For this reason, this festival is also called Abittam. It is also called Shravani or Rishi Tarpan.

The festival of Narali Purnima is particularly performed by the Hindu fisheries community. They celebrate it for the coming year which will be full of happiness, joy and wealth.
