Vrat Period :
Maha Laxmi Vrat begins on the Shukla Ashtami Tithi during the Hindu month of Bhadrapada, four days after Ganesha Chaturthi. It is kept for sixteen consecutive days ending on Krishna Ashtami during the Hindu month of Ashwin.
Once, in a humble village, resided a poor Brahmin who possessed an unwavering devotion to Lord Vishnu. Each day, he diligently performed Puja and offered heartfelt prayers to the deity.
Lord Vishnu, profoundly moved by the Brahmin’s unwavering devotion, decided to manifest himself before the Brahmin. He graciously offered the Brahmin a boon of his choosing. The Brahmin, in his earnestness, beseeched Lord Vishnu to grace his home with the presence of Goddess Lakshmi.
In response, Lord Vishnu advised the Brahmin to invite a particular lady who came to the village temple to bake “Upal” to his home. This lady,not known to the Brahmin, was none other than Goddess Lakshmi in disguise. Lord Vishnu assured the Brahmin that this act would ultimately lead to the prosperity he sought. After delivering this message, Lord Vishnu vanished from the Brahmin’s presence.
The following day, the Brahmin arrived at the temple early in the morning. When the lady, who was actually Goddess Lakshmi, appeared to bake “Upal,” the Brahmin extended an invitation for her to visit his home. Goddess Lakshmi, recognizing that the Brahmin had acted upon the counsel of Lord Vishnu, instructed him that he must undertake the Mahalakshmi Vrat for sixteen consecutive days for her to bless his home.
Goddess Lakshmi conveyed that the Brahmin must faithfully observe the Mahalaxmi Vrat for the designated duration. On the sixteenth day, he should offer “Aragh” to Chandrama (the Moon). By adhering to these instructions, he would be bestowed with immense wealth.
With steadfast devotion, the Brahmin diligently adhered to the Mahalaxmi Vrat for sixteen days. As promised, Goddess Lakshmi graced his home with boundless prosperity. From that moment on, the Brahmin lived a joyous and prosperous life. It is believed that this tradition of the Mahalakshmi Vrat originated from this event.
Those who faithfully observe the Mahalakshmi Vrat are said to receive the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi and enjoy a life filled with happiness and prosperity.
