Holi Puja Procedure, What to do on Holi Festival

Holi, the festival of colours, is celebrated with joy and enthusiasm throughout India. In some places, some special pujas are performed during Holi festival. Devotees light the lamps in the night and worship Holika at anytime between afternoon and evening. There is not fault if you perform Holika Puja after taking meals.

Before Holi puja, a demon called Dundha is pleased with chanting the puja sankalpam. Wood pieces and dried cow dung balls are kept at a place and set fire.

In 2017, Holi festival date is March 12.

The sacred bonfire is called Holikadahan in North India and Kamadahanam in South Indian states.

Slokam to recite during Holi Puja:

“Vanditasi surendrena brahmana shankarena cha

Athasthwam pahino devi bhoote bhootipradaa bhava”

Pradakshinam or circumambulation around the bonfire is done while chating the mantra.

Lakshmi Puja and Indra pooja are other sacred rituals performed on Holi festival or Falgun Purnima day. Falgun Purnima is also known as Mahalakshmi Jayanthi. Lord Krishna Puja is also observed during Holi especially in North Indian states like Orissa, Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Mahdya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, and Gujarat.

    Keep Vaibhav Laxmi Vrat For The Miracleous Result In Your Life

    Importance of Vaibhava Lakshmi Vrata
    Devotees who undertake the vrat of goddess Lakshmi with faith and sincerity are sure to achieve whatever they desire. Men and women can observe this vrat.Vrat should be observed for 11 or 21 Friday as per one’s oath.Vrat should be observed on Fridays only. One should be on fast on the day of observing the Vrat. It is preferred to have meals (veg) once a day and the sweet dish that is offered to goddess Lakshmi. If for any cause the vrat is not maintained, i.e.; (if one has to go on a tour or any consequent untouchability owing to death in the family or if the women is in menses on the Friday) they can observe the vrat the following Friday at one’s residence only.At the time of the celebration of the Vrat,i.e; on completing 11 or 21 Fridays as decided at the time of oath,one should give the book “VAIBHAV LAKSHMI VRAT” to 7,11, 21, 51 or 101 women according to one’s own desire and distribute the books of this Vaibhav Lakshmi Vrat and thus the vrat of goddess Vaibhav Lakshmi would spread more and more…This vrat is very simple to be observed.Goddess Lakshmi has innumerable incarnations.Amongs all,’SHRI YANTRA’ the amulet of Goddess Lakshmi is beloved to her.

    The 8 incarnations of Goddess Lakshmi are as follows:
    1.Dhana Lakshmi
    2.Shri Gaja Lakshmi
    3.Shri Aadhi Lakshmi
    4.Shri Vijaya Lakshmi
    5.Shri Aaishwarya Lakshmi
    6.Shri Veera Lakshmi

    Goddess Lakshmi’s incarnation of Dhan Lakshmi itself is Vaibhava Lakshmi Above all these, the important thing is that one should have full faith and devotion in Goddess Lakshmi that she would certainly fulfill the desire.Dear frd I hope you consider is God message and take action.
