Kajari Purnima is celebrated in Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Uttar Pradesh. Kajili Purnima is an important festival for farmers and agricultural communities.
The celebrations of Kajari Purnima begin on the Kajari Navami, Shravan Shukla Navami. On Kajli Navami day, women go to fields and bring clay in leaves. The place around the puja room is cleaned and sanctified with cow dung. With rice flour rangoli patterns are designed. Drawing of rangoli patterns or designs is referred as ‘Navami. After doing all these, the clay in the leaf is worshipped.
The puja is continued for seven days till Shravan Purnima or Kajari Poornima day. On the Kajari Purnima, in the evening the concluding puja is performed. The performers of the Vrata make out a procession carrying the clay leaves on their heads. They go to a pond and immerse them in that water body. Women observe fasting during the day and worship for good health and good future of their children.
Kajli Purnima is an important festival for farmers and farming communities. On this day, farmers worship Goddess Bhagwati and offer special recipes as naivedya to please her. They seek blessing from Goddess Bhagwati for a good crop in coming year.
