Ma Lakshmi says, “The one blessed by me is honored. But a poor one, even one as great as Lord Shiva, gets no social respect. He is ignored everywhere.”
Ma Laxmi’s statement is practical truth. What is life without money and riches? All pleasures and comforts in life are bought with money. Without it, nothing comes or is gained.
But how does one become blessed with such riches?
No prosperity comes without Ma Laxmi’s blessing. Performing this Vrata is one way to earn Ma Lakshmi’s blessing. Money earned through wrong means (crime, etc) cannot have Ma Laxmi’s blessing. Money earned the wrong way brings nothing but trouble – trouble with the law, social stigma, etc. Money that comes easily goes easily as well.
According to the Shastras, Shri Vaibhava Lakshmi Vrata is the easiest and most religious way to be blessed with prosperity.
