lakshmiVaralakshmi Vrata is a festival to propitiate the goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Vishnu, one of the Hindu Trinity. Varalakshmi is one who grants boons (Varam). It is an important pooja performed by married women in most of the southern states of Indi. The Hindu festival going by the name ‘Vara Lakshmi Vrata’ is celebrated on the Second Friday or the Friday before full moon day – Poornima in the month of Śravaṇā, also called Śawan in Hindi and Aadi in Tamil which corresponds to the English months of July–August.

Varalakshmi Vrata is performed by married woman for the well being of all the family members, especially husband, to get progeny etc. It is believed that worshiping Goddess Varalakshmi on this day is equivalent to worshiping Ashtalaksmi – the eight goddesses of Wealth, Earth, Learning, Love, Fame, Peace, Pleasure, and Strength. Because of the popularity in some states of India, it is declared as an optional official holiday in India.

    Respected sir, I am very much interested to take up this pooja and follow it meticulously every year. My Mother nor my Mother In-law do not have the costume of doing Varalakshmi Lakshmi pooja. Please advice how to take up this pooja.

      Sorry for the late reply. It is already late. You can go to any senior lady relative of your house who has the pooja and take up the pooja and from them on do it at your home yourself.
