Today’s Holiday: Sharad Purnima


Today’s Holiday:
Sharad Purnima

Hindus devote this day to the moon god, Hari. In the belief that amrit (elixir) is showered on the earth by moonbeams, they prepare khir (milk thickened with rice and mixed with sugar) on this day and offer it to Hari amid the ringing of bells and chanting of hymns. The mixture is left out in the moonshine all night so that it may absorb the amrit falling from the moon. The resulting khir is believed to possess special qualities.
