On the night of Sharad Purnima, Kheer is kept under the sky in the moonlight the whole night, then on the next morning in the morning, it is received as a Prasad by all the family members. It is believed that any person who receives Kheer Prasad on Sharad Purnima, many diseases are eliminated from his body. At the same time, according to astrology, those people who do not give auspicious results in the horoscope, they should definitely make Kheer. Apart from this, it is also believed that Sharad Purnima is the arrival of Goddess Lakshmi, for this reason, she is specially worshiped on this day to please Goddess Lakshmi. There is also scientific fact behind placing Kheer on the roof on the night of Sharad Purnima. Kheer is prepared from milk and rice. Actually, there is an acid called lactic in milk. It is an element that exploits a greater amount of power than the moon’s rays. At the same time, this process becomes easier due to the starch in the rice. Due to this, for centuries, sages and sages have made a provision to keep kheer in the open sky on the night of Sharad Purnima and have told that the consumption of this kheer is important for health. According to another scientific belief, milk products made from milk should be consumed on this day. Silver has high resistance. This keeps viruses away.
