Vrat, Fasting on Poornima is very auspicious

Many people observe fasting on Poornima day to please lord 'Vishnu'. The fasting period ranges from the sun rising until the sighting of the moon in the evening.

Fasting dates may not match on different locations, so the Vrat/Vratam/fasting should be set as per your city. Astrologycal provides accurate dates based on your city with start and end timings.

Also if the 14th day or Chaturdashi continues till mid-afternoon or 'Madhyahna' of the Purnima then that is considered as a polluted Purnima, even though it may be found prevailing by the evening of the same day. So the Puja day may fall on the fasting day or a day before depending on the starting time of Purnima as per the Hindu Lunar Calendar.
