Guruvaar Pushya Nakshatra Purnima tithi
That way, each day of Magh is pious; yet the Magh Purnima (18th February’11) is highly significant. Worship of the Lord, Shraddha and charities performed on this day after ablutions is of great religious merit. One performing puja of Lord Shiva in prescribed manner attains religious merit equal to that from performing an ashwamedha yajna and finds a place in Lord Vishnu’s abode.
Giving away of sesame seeds, cotton clothes, blankets, jewels, turbans and shoes etc. as per one’s capacity on the Magh Purnima affords one happiness and a place in the heavens. According to Matsya Purana, one who donates Brahma-Vaivarta Purana on this day attains to the abode of Lord Brahma.
