Varalakshmi Vratham 2017 procedure in Tamil free PDF download

The Wikipedia states Varalakshmi Vratam (வரலக்ஷ்மி வ்ரதம்) is a festival to propitiate the goddess Lakshmi, in her form of the boon giver – the name ‘Vara-Lakshmi’ literally means ‘boon (granting) Lakshmi’.  The pooja is practiced by many women in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu.  A main feature of this pooja is that is performed by womenfolk, and the 9 knotted yellow thread (சரடு) which the women folk wear on their right hand after the pooja.  If nothing else, it looks … divine. ;-)

In 2017, the Varalakshmi Vratam occurs on the coming Friday, 04 August 2017.  Like last year, we are listing out the complete procedure for the Varalakshmi Vratam Pooja in Tamil as a PDF file, for free download. 

Aspects which differ like
  • using only the kalasam;
  • kalasam accompanied by a photo;
  • kalasam accompanied by a idol face;
  • placing the kalasam at Isaniya (North East) or Agni (South East) sides;
  • placing the kalasam at the usual Pooja room;
  • filling the kalasam with rice or water; et al,
depend on the family customs and procedure and hence are not elaborated on.  Like so many things in Hinduism, Varalakshmi Vratam has also slight variations, from people to people.
