Pournami, or Pournima, is the full moon day in traditional Hindu lunar calendar. Below are the Pournami time and dates in 2017. The term Pournami and Pournima is widely used in South India and western parts of India. The Pournima day is considered highly auspicious by South Indian Hindus and some communities observe a fast known as Pournami Vratam – from sunrise to sunset on the full moon day.
