Vat Purnima or Wat Purnima is a celebration observed in the Western Indian states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, and Karnataka, India. Women pray for the prosperity and longevity of their husbands by tying threads around a banyan tree or waṭ, which is called “pipal puja”, on this day. It honours Savitri, the legendary wife who rescued her husband’s soul from the ruler of the departed, Yama.
