Varamahalakshmi Vratham is a festival dedicated to Mata Lakshmi Devi. It is a famous puja performed mainly by married women in India. ‘Vara Lakshmi Vrata’ is celebrated in the months of July–August.

Varalakshmi Vratham is performed by married women for the goodness of their husband. It is believed that by worshipping Mata Lakshmi on this most auspicious day would bring all kinds of prosperity to our family. Long ago, there lived a chaste and a pious woman called Charumathi in the present day Maharashtra. Due to her good nature, and by her sincere devotion, Mata Lakshmi appeared in her dream and asked her to perform puja to her.

Charumathi performed the Varalakshmi puja, along with her family members in a noble manner by offering fruits, flowers and sweets to the divine goddess. Due to that, Mata Lakshmi blessed her and granted SALVATION to her and to her entire family after their death. It is believed that by worshipping Mata Lakshmi during the Varalakshmi Vratham day, we would get the blessings of the Ashta Lakshmis.

They are as follows:

1. Aadi Lakshmi
2. Dhana Lakshmi
3. Dhairya Lakshmi
4. Sowbhagya Lakshmi
5. Vijaya Lakshmi
6. Dhanya Lakshmi
7. Santana Lakshmi
8. Vidya Lakshmi

Let us observe fasting on the Varalakshmi Vratham festival day, and perform puja to Mata Lakshmi in a grand manner, in order to get her immense blessings in our life.
