Dubai: “Varamahalaxmee Pooja Samithi” cordially invites you for the upcoming Pooja event to be held on 8th August 2014 at Indian Academy School, Al Gusais – Dubai.
Sraavana masam is also a highly auspicious month in Hindu philosophy flooded with festivals. The most important festival which we celebrate here is the Varamahalaxmee vartha.
Varalakshmi vratam is performed in the Shravana Masa, Shukla Paksha Shukravara, that is, the Friday immediately following the full moon day in the auspicious month of Shravana. This pooja is undertaken by the women for prosperity, good health, and to wish long life for their husbands. There are eight forces or energies known as Sri (Wealth), Bhu (Earth), Sarasvati (Learning), Priti (Love), Kirti (Fame), Santi (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. The 8 forms of Ashtalakshmi are – Aadi Lakshmi, Dhaanya Lakshmi, Dhairya Lakshmi, Gaja Lakshmi, Santaana Lakshmi, Vijaya Lakshmi, Vidhya Lakshmi & Dhana Lakshmi.
Lord Shiva explained to Goddess Parvathi that this is the only Vratha which gives the devotee the 8 types of wealth. And hence, it is believed that, those who perform the Varalakshmi Pooja with devotion and dedication will be blessed with health, wealth and prosperity.
