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.

    Namaskarams,

    Sir, Shravana masya in Tamil is AavaNi and not Aadi as you have specified here. Please check it.

    Thank you for this audio tutorial.

    In sankalpa, nakshatra is stated as ‘Moola’ whereas it should be ‘Uthradam/Uthrashada’ star. I think the star is erroneously repeated from last year mantras. For the sake of authenticity such errors could be avoided. Thanks.
