What is Sharad Poonam?

His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree presided upon the Sharad Poonam festival celebrations in Madhapur, on 16th October 2005.

The festival was held in the vast grounds of the village high school, where a magnificent throne had been situated for the Lord, at the pinnacle of a display of steel utensils. The significance of the steel is that it reflects the cool, soothing light of the moon onto all the devotees on this day, when the moon is said to shine at its brightest.

The sants and devotees of Kutch danced to the accompaniment of live devotional music, performed by Swamibapa’s highly talented Sants.

At the end of the festival, the traditional prasad of 'doodh pova' and 'gota’, was distributed to all.

Celebrations were also observed at all Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan Temples around the world including in Maninagar.
