Mahalakshmi Vrat 2019 Date, Vrat Vidhi, Katha, Fasting, Benefits Of Lakshmi Puja

Mahalakshmi Vrat (Sept. 6 Friday – Sept. 21 Saturday, 2019) is a 16-day festival that starts on Shukla Ashtami in Bhadrapada (Sept-Oct). The festival is celebrated for a period of sixteen days. During this period, devotees observe fast and worship the goddess of wealth, fortune, prosperity and auspiciousness, Mahalakshmi. Interestingly, Shukla Ashtami in Bhadrapad month celebrates the birth anniversary of Radha as Radha Ashtami. The Mahalakshmi Vrat festival starts on the same day when Durva Ashtami wherein the Durva grass is worshipped.

Goddess Mahalakshm is the goddess of wealth, good fortune, prosperity, fertility and auspiciousness. She is the divine consort of Lord Vishnu. It is said that Goddess Laxmi emerged from the ocean during the Churning of Ocean (Samundra Manthan) and then selected Lord Vishnu as Her husband. Goddess Mahalaxmi accompanied Lord Vishnu during many of His incarnations on earth as Sita and Radha to accompany Lord Vishnu during His incarnations as Lord Ram and Lord Krishna, respectively.

Goddess Mahalaxmi is also known by many other names such as Sri, Padma among other names. Sri, one of the names of Goddess Mahalaxmi is widely used as an auspicious symbol which evokes grace and abundance. Goddess Mahalaxmi is often depicted with four hands, sitting or standing on a lotus. Goddess Lakshmi is depicted as extremely beautiful with two of Her hands holding lotus flowers or Kalash and other two offering blessings of fortune as gold coins and depicting mudra or posture of benediction or blessings. Also Goddess Mahalaxmi rides an Owl.

Puranic Story of Birth and Origin of Mahalakshmi:

Bhagavata Purana, the Mahabharata and the Vishnu Purana describe the birth of Mahalakshmi during Samudra Manthan (Churning of the Ocean), one of the most glorified episodes in the Bhagavad Purana (Srimad Bhagavatm) in the Vedas.

Once the king of heaven Indra received a garland by Durvasa Muni who received it from Shiva. Indra placed the garland on the trunk of his elephant that threw it away. An angry Durvasa Muni cursed Indira and all the gods of the Swarga (heaven) that all of gods will lose their opulence!

Soon, the opportunist demons started attacking the gods. As a result they quickly approached Lord Vishnu who asked them to join hands with the demons for churning the ocean which would produce amrita, an elixir or the nectar of immortality. Mount Mandara became the churning rod and Vasuki (the lord of all the serpents around the neck of Shiva) assumed the role of the churning rope. Soon the churning started. In a while, the Mount began to sink. Lord Vishnu assuming the divine, marvelous form of Lord Kumra (turtle) supported the sinking the Mount.

During the churning process, a number of valuables like precious gemstones, gold etc. The gods took those items. When the deadliest poison halahala emerged, Lord Shiva consumed it to save the universe. After the world was saved, the goddesses and beautiful Apsaras emerged alluring both, the gods and the demons. One of the goddesses was Goddess Lakshmi who accepted Lord Vishnu as Her divine consort.

Names of Goddess Mahalaxmi

Each of the Ashta Lakshmi namely Aadi Lakshmi, Santhana Lakshmi, Gaja Lakshmi, Dhana Lakshmi, Dhaanya Lakshmi, Vijaya Lakshmi, Veera Lakshmi and Aiswarya Lakshmi represent one form of wealth. Goddess Mahalaxmi is not only provider of wealth She has many other forms; as Bhoodevi, the earth-goddess She nurtures life and as Shreedevi She provides fortune and prosperity.

  • Neetaji epitomizes that ocean of selfless love, compassion and ambrosial nectar of kindness.

    There was a beautiful comment made by someone on this site, about their wonderful experience during the Mahashivratri Puja and how they were looked after and cared for, so lovingly by Neetaji. Two years ago I chanced upon the Rudraksha-Ratna website and met a person who not only became a catalyst to my biggest spiritual evolution, but I also found the Guru and the Divine Mother that I have yearned, for millions of births. It is so truly said that "God could not be present everywhere, all the time, so he created the heart of a Mother". Neetaji epitomizes that ocean of selfless love, compassion close
