Significance of Varalakshmi Vratam
Varalakshmi Vrata is one of the prominent and very important of Hindu festivals. Sri Varalakshmi Pooja performed primarily by women in the South Indian states of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. It is celebrated on the Friday preceding (that comes just before) Full Moon day in the month of ‘Sravana’ (around July-August) and therefore is also known popularly as ‘Sravana Sukravara Nomu’.
Varalakshmi Vrata Significance
It is a festival to propitiate the Goddess Vara Lakshmi, the consort of Vishnu, as this is one of her special forms where in, She is in the form who grants desired boons (‘Varam’ or ‘Vara’ means boon).
It is said that Goddess Vara Lakshmi will enter the house of anyone devotee who thinks of Her and worships Her on this auspicious day and blesses them. There are many festivals in the Hindu calendar year dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi. But, Varalakshmi Vratham is considered is exclusive, special and very auspicious because it is marked by strict observance of certain practices and austerities. It is therefore known as ‘Vratham’ – which means –
The name Vishnu really means pervading everywhere, and Lakshmi, his consort, is symbolical of the forces found everywhere. Eight forces or energies are recognized and they are known as Sri (Wealth), Bhu (Earth), Saraswati (Learning), Preeti (Love), Keerti (Fame), Shanti (Peace), Tushti (Pleasure) and Pushti (Strength). Each one of these forces is called a Lakshmi and all the eight forces are called the Ashta Lakshmis or the eight Lakshmis by Hindus. As health, wealth and prosperity depend upon the rhythmic play of these forces, the worship of Lakshmi is said to be to obtain these three. Hence this festival is celebrated and Vrata is observed for invoking the blessings of Sri Vara Lakshmi mostly by ladies for the welfare of their marital bliss (Sowbhagyam), children (Santana) and to have all the desired boons fulfilled (Sakala Ishta Kamya Phala Siddhi)
|Chant of the Month – Kanakadhara Stotram
Pundit ji suggests that devotees who recite this mantra every morning and evening after taking a bath.
He who recites, reads or hears this Kanaka Dhara Stotram twice daily, in the morning and evening will attain both material as well as spiritual wealth undoubtedly.
Adi Sankara was and is still one of the great saints, a blessing from the lord to the entire world. He was born in a poor Brahmin family in Kerala. After receiving “Brahmopadesa”, as is usual during those times, he was asked to beg alms for his lunch. One day when he went to a Brahmin house, the lady of the house was so poor that she did not have anything to give him. She searched hard and found one small, dried up fruit of gooseberry, which she gave to Sankara, the little boy. He was so touched by her gesture that he sang these 21 mellifluous hymns in praise of the Goddess Lakshmi, Who was so impressed at the way this little boy addressed the Divine Mother, that She poured down golden goose berries as rain to the poor woman’s house. Even today it is believed that poverty would be banished by singing this hymn.
