Shri Amavasya and Purnima Homam
Purnima refers to the Full moon day which divides the month into 2 equal lunar fortnights (Called as Paksha). ... Many people keep Purnima Vrat on this holy day. They also take a dip in the sacred river before sunrise. Devotees also worship Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu on this day.
Purnima Puja also known as (Satyanarayan Puja) is considered to be highly important for prosperity and happiness. This puja is usually done after special occasions and important ceremonies like marriage, on the occasion of some big achievement, purchase of house or other property, etc. Many important festivals in India also fall on Purnima.
The Satyanarayan Puja is a religious worship of the Hindu god Vishnu. Satya means “truth” and narayana means, “The highest being” so Satyanarayan means “The highest being who is an embodiment of Truth”. Vrat or Puja means a religious vow, religious observance, or obligation.
It is believed that one can get rid of all woes by keeping a vrat and performing the puja with devotion. Thus by doing so, the devotee can appeal to the Lord to shower his compassionate grace on him/her. And thus, he/she shall not only invite auspiciousness to his/her life also make his/her guests feel blissful by sharing the benefits of the puja.

Anyone irrespective of caste, creed, age and gender can conduct the puja at their home or workplace. It can also be performed either before the engagement ceremony or marriage. One can even do it before launching a new business or an initiative. Therefore, the Lord lays emphasises on bhakti (devotion) and not the stature, financial background or caste of a devotee or the occasion.
This specific puja is meant for erasing all the barriers in society and teaming up as one unit to chant the name of God, who represents eternal truth.
