Date and Auspicious Timings As we prepare for this spiritually charged day, it's essential to be aware of the auspicious timings. The Paush Purnima Tithi commences on January 24th at 09:52 PM and concludes on January 25th at 11:26 PM. Notably, this day hosts the Sarvartha Siddhi Yoga, allowing for the performance of auspicious activities, including worship, throughout the day post-sunrise. The Abhijit Muhurat, considered the most auspicious time, falls between 12:12 PM to 12:55 PM.

Rituals and Pooja Vidhi of Paush Purnima

The observance of Paush Purnima involves a series of rituals that hold immense spiritual significance. Initiating the day with a resolution to fast, devotees take a holy dip in sacred rivers or ponds. Renowned pilgrimage sites like Kashi, Prayagraj, and Haridwar witness devotees participating in Ganga Snan, the holy dip in the Ganges.

Sacred Bath:

Following the purifying bath, devotees perform the sacred act of offering Arghya (water offering) to Surya Dev, accompanied by recitations of Surya mantras. Subsequently, the focus shifts to the worship of Lord Madhusudan, an incarnation of Vishnu, where devotees offer Naivedya, food offerings symbolizing their devotion and gratitude.

Daan (Charity)

One of the significant rituals of Paush Purnima is Daan (Charity). Devotees engage in acts of kindness, feeding the needy, giving alms, and donating items such as sesame, jaggery, and blankets. This act of charity is not merely a material offering but a gesture of compassion and goodwill, sending recipients off with respect and dignity.

Significance of Paush Purnima 

Paush Purnima carries profound spiritual significance, rooted in the synergy of solar and lunar energies. The association of the Paush month with Surya Dev and the day of Purnima with the Moon signifies a harmonious balance of these celestial forces. Devotees believe that engaging in the worship of Surya Dev during the Paush month and performing rituals on Paush Purnima can lead to salvation, known as Moksha. The dual worship of both Surya Dev and Chandra Dev on this auspicious day is believed to fulfill desires and remove obstacles from one's life.

Cultural Importance of Paush Purnima

Beyond its religious significance, Paush Purnima encapsulates the essence of Hindu traditions, emphasizing the interconnectedness of nature, celestial bodies, and the cyclical pattern of time in human life. This day serves as a reminder of communal harmony, spiritual awakening, and the practice of charity, reflecting the deep-rooted cultural values embedded in Hinduism.
Paush Purnima in 2024 transcends being merely a date on the calendar; it stands as a celebration of celestial grace and spiritual devotion. The rituals, fasting, and prayers undertaken on this day are not just personal acts of faith but collective observances that strengthen cultural bonds and uphold social responsibility. As we approach this sacred day, let's immerse ourselves in its profound spiritual essence and actively participate in the rituals that have stood as cornerstones of Hindu tradition for centuries.
In conclusion, Paush Purnima 2024 beckons us to partake in a spiritual journey, weaving together ancient traditions and contemporary devotion, creating a tapestry of cultural richness that resonates across generations.
