Today Is Full Moon - We Call It Kojagiri Purnima - A Great Tradition

Today is Kojagiri Purnima(Full Moon) . Today is the day when we thank god and pray for the good health and blessings for our elder son/daughter. Today is also termed as Kaumudi(moonlight) Celebration.

This is one way to thank the almighty for all the blessings he has bestowed upon us. And one of the best blessings is in the form of the first child. Because this can be the only way, where in any man or any woman, who have tied knots, be termed as complete male or female.

Apart from the success in career and maintaining relations with the entire relative circle, the completion of this circle will be only when the husband and wife accept the responsibility of becoming father and mother. And the responsible father and mother will take utmost care for the best of the upcoming of their child.

And in this process, we thank god for giving us all the blessings and also completing our circle of responsibility of becoming father and mother.

Is there a special night to be grateful for second and subsequent children too?

That is interesting, never heard of this celebration. Yes, it is a great honor and privilege to be parents of children.

Actually, the elder brother/sister was considered to be a fatherly figure for the siblings. He is responsible for taking care of the entire family if there is any untoward happenings to his/her father. (This is a very old tradition, which we still follow to pass it on to the next generations to keep the same tradition alive). Younger brothers and sisters are always the pet of the entire family. Yes, there are some other traditions w.r.t. brother sister relation which we call Rakhi-Poornima and Bhau-Beej

It is a very old tradition which is followed by us by our ancestors and we try to keep it alive by passing it on to our children.
