Sharad Pornima

Creatividad enfrentada con inesperados inconvenientes y la luna eclipsada del cazador, exultante e indiscreta, ebria y llorona, temperamental; meditativa, destapó anoche la locura, imprevisible licantropía… y durante la luna eclipsada de la cosecha germinó recobrada sabiduría. Frutos del otoño. Hay que prepararse para el frío invierno.

And I'll find strength in pain 
And I will change my ways 
I'll know my name as it's called again

The Sharad Purnima or Kojaagari Purnima or Kumar Purnima is a harvest festival celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu lunar month of Ashvin (September–October). It marks the end of monsoon. There is a traditional celebration of the moon and is also called the 'Kaumudi celebration', Kaumudi meaning moonlight.

At night, goddess Lakshmi is worshiped and night vigil is observed. According to a folk-tale, once a king fell on evil days, and was in great financial straits, but then his queen observed this fast and night vigil, and worshiped the goddess of wealth, Laxmi. Consequently, they were blessed by the goddess and they regained their prosperity.

It is also believed that on this day as moon and the earth are very close to each other, the moon rays have certain healing properties of nourishing the body and the soul.
