Narali Purnima 2023 Date

Shravana Purnima is popularly known as Nariyal Purnima in Maharashtra, especially at coastal Maharashtra and Konkani region like Goa and Gujarat.

People worship God Varun and especially offer Nariyal to the God of sea on Nariyal Purnima day. It is believed that the worship of Varun Devta or Puja offered to sea on the auspicious day of Shravana Purnima appeases the God and it protects fisher-men from all sorts of untoward incidents.

Maharashtrian Brahmins, who perform ritualistic Shravani Upakarma on this day, observe Phalahar fasting on the day and eat only Nariyal i.e. the coconut during the fast. Thus in Konkan and coastal Maharashtra the day of Shravana Purnima is popularly known as Nariyal Purnima or the Coconut day.

The monsoon comes to an end when it comes Shravan Purnima. It is said that with Purnima Tithi of Shravan, the fishing season starts. So fishermen seek blessings of Lord Varun before beginning their work. It is also said that if one worships the sea on the auspicious day of Shravana Purnima, the lord of sea gets pleased and protects fishermen from all sorts of untoward incidents.
