Varalakshmi Vratam

12th August 2016

Varalakshmi Vratam is a festival to propitiate Goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Vishnu, one of the Hindu Trinity. Varalakshmi is one who grants boons. It is an important pooja performed by many women. This Vrata is celebrated on the Second Friday or the Friday before full moon day - Poornima in the month of Sravana (Sawan in Hindi, Aadi in Tamil) which corresponds to the Gregorian 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.
