Mahalakshmi Vrata in North India is continued for 16 days starting from Bhadrapad Shukla Astami till Ashwin Krishna Astami. As a part of Lakshmi Vrata in North India, Mahalakshmi Vrat katha is recited.

Steps involved in Maha Lakshmi Vrata puja procedure

  1. A pot is filled with water and adorned with betel leaves. Keep a coconut on the top of the water filled pot.
  2. Now dress the pot with red cloth and tie a red thread around the pot. On the pot, draw four lines with kumkum. The four lines indicate the Chatur Vedas. A Swastik is drawn on the pot. Swastik is the representation of prosperity and purity. Now, the pot with all these decorations is referred as Kalash or Purna Kumbh which represents the Universal power (Supreme deity).
  3. Akshata (consecrated rice) are kept and some coins are placed in the water in Kalash. This Kalash or Purna Kumbh is worshipped as Goddess Maha laxmi.
  4. The simple Lakshmi pujas like lighting diyas and deepa are performed. Lakshmi Ashtottara Satanamavali and Lakshmi Sahasranama stotra are recited during Mahalaxmi Vrata.
