The Significance of Varalakshmi Vratham

Varalakshmi Vratham, also known as Varamahalaxmi Pooja, holds a significant place in Hindu culture and is celebrated with great reverence and devotion. The festival finds its roots in ancient scriptures and folklore, enriching it with a profound and captivating history.

According to legend, a prosperous and virtuous woman named Charumathi lived in the kingdom of Magadha. Deeply devoted to her family, she had a dream in which Goddess Lakshmi appeared, urging her to perform a special puja to receive blessings for the well-being and prosperity of her loved ones. Inspired by the divine vision, Charumathi and other women from all over the kingdom initiated the Varalakshmi Vratham tradition that we know today.

Varalakshmi Vratham is usually observed on the second Friday or the Friday before the full moon day in the month of Shravana (usually in the months of July or August), according to the Hindu lunar calendar. Goddess Varalakshmi, an incarnation of Lakshmi, is revered as the bestower of wealth, abundance, and happiness.

During the festival, devotees prepare meticulously, adorning themselves in traditional attire and creating an auspicious ambience within their homes.

Elaborate rituals are performed to invoke the presence of Goddess Varalakshmi. The main highlight of the puja is the sacred Varalakshmi Vratham thread, which married women tie on their right wrists as a symbol of their commitment to the well-being of their families. This thread is believed to carry the blessings of the goddess and is considered auspicious for the prosperity and longevity of their spouses.

The festival also involves the preparation of a special feast, offering various delectable dishes to the goddess. Devotees decorate the puja altar with flowers, fruits, and incense, creating a divine ambience to welcome the goddess' presence.

The Role of Fragrance in Varalakshmi Vratham

In spiritual devotion, fragrance possesses a magical allure, weaving a thread of enchantment that connects the mortal with the divine. As incense weaves its aromatic tapestry, the air becomes a canvas for transcendence. Fragrance, an ethereal language of the gods, purifies the surroundings, elevates concentration, and invokes the embrace of positive energies. Thus, it becomes an inseparable companion in the glorious symphony of Varalakshmi Vratham.

Incorporating the exquisite essence of agarbattis into the sacred Thamboolam bestowed upon married women, alongside the revered coconut, haldi, and kumkum, would lend an enchanting and meaningful touch to this time-honoured offering. Picture the delicate wisps of fragrant smoke gently swirling around these cherished elements, symbolising a harmonious union of tradition and heavenly aroma.

A cherished tradition of expressing gratitude and reverence for our ancestors involves the gracious glow of agarbattis during a special ritual dedicated solely to them. With heartfelt devotion, we delicately place these illuminated agarbattis upon the sacred ancestral altar, accompanied by offerings of succulent fruits and delectable sweets. In this poignant act, we honour the presence of our forefathers during festive occasions, acknowledging their eternal role in our lives.

When embarking on the sacred Varalakshmi Vratham rituals, the home's profound purification and blessing can be achieved by simply igniting a single agarbatti. Enveloped in its aromatic embrace, we embark on a journey through every nook and cranny, bestowing the essence of blessings upon our abode. Witness the sanctifying fragrance weaving through the air, ushering in a tapestry of positivity and serenity, preparing the dwelling for the celestial celebrations.
