Varalakshmi Vrat

About mighty goddess Varalakshmi
Varalakshmi is a supreme incarnation of the goddess Mahalakshmi. In this avatar, goddess Lakshmi brings religious boons for her devotees. The goddess looks serene, and she is milky in complexion and wears pristine white clothes. 

Significance of Varalakshmi Vrat
Varalakshmi Vrat finds extensive importance in Vedas and Puranas. It is celebrated in the Shrawan maas of the Hindu lunar calendar. There is a prominent legend behind Varalakshmi Vrat. Once there was a great devotee of goddess Lakshmi called Charumathi, who lived in a beautiful town Kundinagram. Charumathi was very religious and dedicated towards divinity, Lakshmi. One day goddess Adi Lakshmi came in Charumathi's dream and commanded her to start Varalakshmi Vrats to attract more blessings from goddess Lakshmi. She explained the glorious dream to her husband and started practising Varalakshmi Vrat with complete dedication and devotion. Impressed by her determination and affection, Goddess Varalakshmi granted her multiple boons, fulfilling life with material gains and peace of mind. Since then, Varalakshmi Vrat has been celebrated to please the supreme divinity Varalakshmi and invite her glorious blessings in life.
