view19923 views

To commemorate this event, people fast for the entire day and break it after sighting the new moon on the day of Chandra Darshan.


In Hinduism, Chandra is one of the most important and revered deity. Chandra is a Navgraha that influences all life on earth. As Hindu, we follow the lunar calendar and therefore, the moon is very important for us. Astrologically, it is even more significant than the sun. The moon is a favorable planet/star and is associated with purity, wisdom and good intentions.

In fact, when the moon is placed favorable in an individual’s horoscope, it makes their life much more vibrant and meaningful.
