What is the importance of Jyeshta Gauri Vrata? Why Gauri Puja (Mahalakshmi Pujan) is observed in Bhadrapada Month? Here are the full details about Bhadrapada Mahalakshmi Vrata (Jyeshta Gauri Pujan)…
Goddess Mahalakshmi, the remover of dangers
According to the legend mentioned in Scriptures, during the battle between the deities and the demons, the wives of the deities (Gods) were harassed. All the women went to Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi and worshipped her to demolish the demons. Appeased by the prayers, Sri Mahalakshmi vanquished the demons on Ashtami, the eighth day of Shukla Paksha in Bhadrapda Month to relieve the deities from the dangers.
To commemorate this, Goddess Mahalakshmi is worshipped in the form of Jyeshta Gauri Devi on Bhadrapada Ashtami.
Is there any spiritual reason for invocation of Gauri?
Yes, there is. We invoke Gauri on the day in order to welcome the deity of knowledge and the supernatural powers which accompany Lord Ganesha. To surrender ourselves to Gauri and Ganesha, we invoke Gauri on this day with a great sense of gratitude.
According to the religious practices, Ganesha Pujan creates the frequencies in the house of the performer. The performer can get the benefits of these frequencies with Gauri Avahan and Puja.
