The event commenced by Sandhya Aarti Niyams and Kirtan Bhakti followed by scripture recitals. Steel utensils were assembled in a beautiful manner upon which Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa gave darshan and disciples played raas around it.
It is believed that during this Poonam, the moon rays have healing properties hence people dress up in white, assemble steel utensils to reflect off the moon rays. They also consume sweetened milk called Doodh Pauwa.
After pleasing Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa with their devotional raas, devotees proceeded to Swamibapa Hall for Mahaprasad.
