Varalakshmi Vratam 2018: Date, Tithi Timing, Puja Procedure, Decoration Items

Varalakshmi or Varamahalakshmi Vrata (24th August 2018, Friday) is dedicated to Goddess of Fortune Lakshmi. It is the only festival wherein the goddess grants boons or wish-fulfillment. ‘Vara’ means ‘Boon’, ‘fulfillment of wishes’. On this day, a special Lakshmi puja is performed in order to please the goddess of fortune auspiciousness.

It is mentioned in the Atharva Veda (7:155) that that ‘a thousand Lakshmis are born with the birth of a virtuous and auspicious being’. It means Goddess Lakshmi is associated with auspiciousness and Her divine form Varalakshmi is associated with riches, fortune, wealth and desire fulfillments. Worshipping Goddess Varalakshmi means worshipping Ashtalakshmi that is the eight divine forms of Lakshmi; Goddesses of Wealth (Sri), Earth (Bhu), Learning (Saraswati), Love (Priti), Fame (Kirti), Peace (Shanti), Pleasure (Tushti) and Strength (Shakti).

The Sanskrit word ‘Lakshya’ which means ‘aim’ also comes from ‘Lakshmi’. It signifies our purpose (aim) of life to attain both, material prosperity and spirituality. Lakshmi ji when pleased with the pure heart of Her worshipper bestows upon them the both.

So on this day, one can fast or perform a Lakshmi Puja in order to please the goddess of fortune to fulfill all of your desires and wishes.

How to Pray To Goddess Lakshmi in Varalakshmi Vratam:

There are two ways to worship Goddess Lakshmi; everyday prayers and special puja on occasions such as Dhanteras and Diwali.

Everyday prayer includes burning the incense sticks, lighting up an oil lamp and offering one’s obeisance to Her. It is best to use Kamalgata mala and Sphatik mala for chanting and Rose and Lotus flower for offering to Her. One can also use Rudraksha Bead (Seven Mukhi) to chant the mantras. A Seven Mukhi Rudraksha bead is ruled by Goddess Mahalakshmi. Therefore it is highly auspicious to chant the Lakshmi mantras on a mala of Seven Mukhi Rudraksha beads.

One could also chant the following simple mantras on the beads while praying to her:

Om Shring Shriye Namaha
Om Shreem Maha Lakshmiyei Namaha

Mantra For Wealth:

ॐ सर्वाबाधा विनिर्मुक्तो, धन धान्यः सुतान्वितः।
मनुष्यो मत्प्रसादेन भविष्यति न संशयः ॐ ।।

Om Sarvabaadhaa Vinirmukto, Dhan Dhaanyah Sutaanvitah |
Manushyo Matprasaaden Bhavishyati Na Sanshayah Om ||

Meaning: We offer our obeisance to Goddess Lakshmi who eradicates all evil forces. Kindly bestow upon wealth, riches and all a prosperous and a better future.

Mantra For Overall Success:

ॐ श्री महालक्ष्म्यै च विद्महे विष्णु पत्न्यै च धीमहि
तन्नो लक्ष्मी प्रचोदयात् ॐ ।।

Om Shree Mahalakshmyai Cha Vidraahe Vishnu Patrayai Cha Dheemahi
Tanno Lakshmi Prachodayat Om ||

Meaning : “We meditate on the greatest Goddess, Who is the divine consort of Lord Vishnu. Kindly bless us with higher intellect, abundance and prosperity.”

  • Summer Solstice and the rudraksha

    I have been a devotee of Shiva for many years. I as you do not agree that only born hindus can benefit from such things. I believe also that shiva goes out of his way for those that are considered outcasts or those that orthodox religions reject. I truly believe this. I also believe that Shiva is easy to please. I've had many adventures with shiva. Only in the last year thou I must say that my understanding of him/her is greater than ever. I have purchased narmada lingams and worship them in my personal temple. I knew that the rudraksha had a positive effect, so now that I have a little wealth close

  • Business doubled in 6 months

    The Lakshmi and Ganesh bracelets are really very good and energies are complementary to Rudraksha. However unlike Rudraksha the beneficial effect stop the moment you stop wearing them. My bracelets started working amazingly well. It takes almost 40-60 days to get full effect. Now they have the ability to alter malefic planet effects as per transit astrology. Previous I was getting effected with those. Business doubled in 6 months. Had new partners Etc. It is truly the BEST discovery thus far. Rajendra, UK close
