Pūrṇamāsī (पूर्णमासी) refers to “full moon days”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.20 (“The celebration of Gaṇeśa’s marriage”).—Accordingly, after Kārttikeya went to the Krauñca mountain: “[...] On coming to know that Śiva had come there with Pārvatī, Kumāra became unattached and was eager to go elsewhere. On being requested by the gods and sages he stayed in a place three Yojanas away. O Nārada, on the full and new moon days, Pārvatī and Śiva are excited by love towards their son and they go there to see him. On new moon days, Śiva himself goes there. On full moon days (pūrṇamāsī), Pārvatī goes there certainly. [...]”.
