What is the story of celebrating Sharad Purnima - According to an ancient legend, a moneylender had two daughters. She used to observe both the full moon fast with devotion. But once the elder daughter celebrated the full moon day lawfully, but the younger daughter gave up the fast. Because of this, the children of the younger daughter started dying as soon as they were born. Then, with the virtuous touch of the elder daughter of the moneylender, the child of the younger daughter came alive.

It is said that since then this fast is performed in a systematic way. Sharad Purnima is also known as Kumar Purnima in some parts of India. On this day, virgin girls worship Lord Kartikeya for a suitable groom. On this day, the girls wake up in the morning and bathe in the sun and offer it to the sun and fast throughout the day. In the evening, she opens her fast after worshiping the moon.

This is how to worship Maa Lakshmi - After bathing in the morning on Sharad Purnima, install a statue of Maa Lakshmi by laying a red cloth on a clean post. After this, now Lakshmi ji should worship with the help of law and read the Lakshmi Stotra. It is believed that reciting this stotra on Sharad Purnima, delights Maa Lakshmi.
