What is Chandra Darshan? | Chandra Darshan Meaning

What is Chandra Darshan

The Moon or Chandra holds importance in Hinduism and is considered a God, who has been worshipped since ancient times. Chandra is also one of the most significant planets among the Navgraha (nine planets) in Vedic Astrology, and planet Chandra rules over the mind and emotions. In literal sense, Chandra Darshan means Moon sighting or viewing. Chandra Darshan falls on the next day after Amavasya (New Moon), when the Moon appears on the sky after the dark night of new Moon. Just like Amavasya, Chandra Darshan too takes place once a month. At a precise time, on that day, right after the Sunset, the Moon rises for a short duration of time.

Viewing the Moon on Chandra Darshan day has religious meaning for Hindus and it is also considered lucky. Worshipping Chandra Dev on this day is said to bless the devotees with prosperity, peace, happiness. Many devotees observe a fast on Chandra Darshan day from morning till the Moon rises and perform the Chandra Darshan pooja, and then they break the fast. Married women observe the Chandra Darshan fast for the long life of their husbands and for a blissful married life.
