Significance and Importance of Varalakshmi Vratam – Vara Laxmi Vratha Mahatmya

Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth and prosperity. Worshipping Goddess Laxmi during Shravan month is highly auspicious because the whole month is dedicated to the divine couple, Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi. Friday is the most auspicious day for Laxmi Devi. Hence, worshipping Lakshmi Devi on Shravan Shukravar is highly meritorious.

    • NAVEEN KUMAR SANAGALA says:

      Even for the first time, if no alternative is there, she can perform the vrata on any other friday during the Shravan month. There is no fixed date for that. The dates and rituals are set up by Goddess’ devotees and not by the Goddess.

      Hope you have understood.
