Chaitra Pournami Significance

The psychological impact of this puja performed on the first full moon day of every year reminds us of the high power that keeps a constant watch on all our actions on this earth floor. The conception of the Chitra Guptas located within each shoulder is a powerful temptation to keep oneself constantly engaged only in good works.

The word Chitragupta means “hidden picture”. A true picture of all our good and bad actions is preserved in the ether record. Hindu uses it for worship. The real significance of Chitra Gupta’s worship is beautifully revealed in the following story associated with it.

Brihaspati is the guru or preacher of Indra, the king of the gods. Indra disobeyed Brihaspati on one occasion and the Guru abandoned his task of instructing Indra as to what he should do and what not. When the compassionate Guru resumed his duty, Indra wanted to know what he should do to uncover the mistakes he had made in his Guru’s absence. Jupiter asked Indra to make a pilgrimage.

Indra was on a pilgrimage, he suddenly felt the weight of sins carried on his shoulders at a certain place (near Madurai in South India), and he discovered a Shiva Lingam there. He got it built immediately.

Now he wished to worship Lingam; God himself caused the Golden Lotus to appear in a nearby pond. Indra was very pleased and blessed. The day he worshiped the Lord was Chitra Purnima.

If you have deep faith if you feel with a contrary heart that you have committed sins due to ignorance, if you pray with faith and devotion to the Lord to forgive your sins, if you are in the future. I pledge to never commit them. If you pledge to be obedient to your Guru and never listen to his advice, then your sins will be forgiven. It does not have any message. This is the significance of the above story of Indra. Meditate on this story on the day of Chitra Purnima.

Hindu scriptures perform elaborate worship of Chitra Gupta on this day. The image of the deity is placed in the kalas (water-filled vessel) and then the image of the god is worshiped with all the rituals and ceremonies of worship.
