Tuesday 8th November is the holy fast of ‘Karthik Purnima’. Fasting on Kartik Purnima has a lot of importance in traditional religion. This day is also considered auspicious for worshiping Lord Vishnu.
According to scriptures, devotees of Lord Vishnu bathe in the holy river and donate food and money on this day. It is believed that worshiping on this day brings merit to a person. By taking holy bath with it, one gets rid of all kinds of doshas. If you are unable to bathe in the Ganga on Kartik Purnima, mixing some special things in the water at home can be beneficial. Let’s know about those things-
According to scriptures, take a bath with 2 cardamoms and light saffron along with Ganges water on the day of Kartik Purnima. By doing this, obstacles in the work are removed. Also, all work is successful. Lord Vishnu was also pleased with this.
According to astrologers, turmeric is very dear to Lord Vishnu. So Lord Vishnu is pleased if he bathes in water with light turmeric on the day of Kartik Purnima. Doing this together eliminates marital problems. Lord Brihaspati was also pleased with this.
Bathing with light milk mixed with water on this day also removes physical problems. It also increases confidence. Remember Lord Vishnu after bath.
