Navana Purnima is the full moon day in Ashwin Month (September - October), which is popularly observed as Kojagari Poornima and Sharad Purnima. The full moon day is known as Navanna because people use fresh grains to cook sweets and other food items. Nava means ‘new' and Anna means ‘food'.
Sharad Purnima :Is a harvest festival when Laxmi, the Goddess of prosperity, visits all homes to bring fortune and good luck to all. Kojagiri, the special night, is celebrated with ice-cold, saffron-flavoured sweet milk, shared in the cool moonlight. The full moon night is called Navanna Purnima or the moonlit night of new food. The newly harvested rice is offered to the gods and lamps are lit before the full moon
