Magha Purnima is one of the important days in Hindu calendar. Religious texts talk about how great it is to take a holy bath and be strict during Magha month. People think that every day in the month of Magha is a special day for doing good deeds. Magha Purnima, also called Maghi Purnima, is the last and most important day of Magha Mahina. On Maghi Purnima, people do things like take a holy bath, give alms, give away a cow, and do Homa at Prayag, where the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, and Saraswati meet.
During the whole month of Magha, people take baths in the Ganga or the Yamuna early in the morning. Bathing every day begins on Paush Purnima and ends on Magha Purnima. People think that charity work done during this time will be easy to get results from. So, people give charity to those in need based on what they can afford. It is also the last day of Kalpawas, the austerity camp that was set up for a month on the bank of the Ganga River in Prayag.

The Magha month is the most important month in the Hindu calendar, according to Hindus. Devotees fast, take a dip in holy waters, give money to good causes, and pray to gods like Vishnu and Hanuman during Maghi Purnima. Hindus think it is very lucky to take this holy bath in rivers like the Ganges, Yamuna, Kaveri, and so on. Hindu mythology also says that Lord Vishnu lives in the river Ganga on this day, and that people can get a lot of good from just touching the water. Most devotees think that their wishes will almost certainly come true because of this and the prayers that are said on this day.
People in different parts of India have different customs. Every year, the southern state of Tamil Nadu has a festival called “float.” On floats are decorated statues of their gods, Meenakshi and Lord Sundeshwara. North India, in places like Allahabad and Prayag, has a large religious fair called the Magha Mela every year at the point where the Ganges, the Yamuna, and the mythical Sarasvati rivers meet.
Astrology behind 2023 Magha Purnima:
Aside from being a religious holiday, this day is also important for astrology. The moon moves into the Cancer constellation as the sun moves into the Capricorn sign. People believe that the holy dip will fix any problems with the sun or moon, and the month itself helps people get used to the changing seasons. People find the power and strength they need to face the next season.
Buddhists believe that Lord Buddha told them that he was going to die on this day, which is another reason why Maghi Purnima is so important. As soon as he said the words, the story goes, there was an earthquake, as if the Earth itself was shaken up by the news. His followers think that this is how the Earth moved when Buddha was born, when he became the religious leader the world knows, and when he died. On this day, Buddhists hold religious ceremonies, pray to Buddha, and give gifts to people who are in need. In India, many Buddhist villages hold fairs and other events to honour Buddha.
