Rituals like holy bath, offering alms, donating cow and Homa at Prayagraj are performed by people on Maghi Purnima. On Magh Purnima, the charity and donation done will give you 32 times more punya than any other day. And that's why the Magh Purnima day is also known as Battisi Purnima. Pitri tarpan and donating in the forefathers name will give you blessings from all your forefathers.
