varalaskhmi vratham

The vrata vidhanam or the vrata vidhi or the vrat process is described as follows:

Commodities required:

Turmeric, liminon(Kumkum), fruits, flowers, betel nut leaves,incense sticks, betel nut,camphor,sandalwood pasate, Akshita(rice coated with turmeric), coconuts, vessel(Kalasam), cloth for the Kalasam,idol of the Goddess.

Offering: 12 different dishes made in ghee.

Three Turmeric thread with nine knots, each knot having a flower.

One thread will be tied to the Goddess, one will be tied to your hand and the final one to another lady.

A tumbler with water and spoon

 

kalash

kalash

Pooja setup:
Place a stool and on top of it spread a new cloth. Pour new rice on it and place the kalash on top of it. The kalsah should be filled with some water and put very few akishtalu (turmeric rice) in it. Place the Mango tree leave and keep the coconut in inverted position on top of the kalash. Cover the upper part of the coconut with the cloth.

This finishes the set up of the Kalash as shown in the pciture beside.

 

 

After this a Ganapati made of Turmeric has to be prepared.

Take about 25gm of Turmeric pour water in it so that it becomes wet like a thick paste and shape it into a pyramid. Place kumkum on top of it. Your turmeric or pasupu Ganapati is ready.

First we do the pooja to the pasupu(turmeric) ganapati : It is a well known fact that Ganapathi is the lord of Vighnas(obstacles) and hence it is a custom that one should worship Ganesha so that whatever work they do should be free from obstacles and the work can be completed successfully.

Follow the pasupu Ganapthi pooja vidhanam and after the the pooja starts for Goddess Lakshmi.

Pooja of Goddess Lakshmi:

Then we have to do ACHAMAYA

We do this by taking three spoons of water telling the below mantras

om keyshavayah svaahaa   (take one spoon of water)

om naaraayanaaya svaahaa (take one spoon of water)

om maadhavaaya svaahaa  (take one spoon of water)

then we go ahead and say the Govinda namas:

om govindhaaya namah,  om vishnavey namah,

om madhusoodhanaaya namah, om thrivikramaaya namah,

om vaamanaaya namah, om shreedharaaya namah,

om Rusheekeyshaaya namah, om padhmanaabhaaya namah,

 om daamodharaaya namah, om samkarshanaaya namah, om vaasudevaaya namah, om pradhyumnaaya namah,

om anirudhdhaaya namah, om purushoththamaaya namah, om adhokshajaaya namah, om naarasimhaaya namah,

om achyuthaaya namah, om janaardhanaaya namah,

om upeymdhraaya namah, om harayey namah,

om sri krishnaaya namah, om sri Krishna parabrahmane namaha.

This ends the govinda namahs

We recite the following remembering all the trimurtis and others

shree lakshmee naaraayanaabhyaam namah,

umaa maheshvaraabhyaam namah,

vaanee hiranyagarbaabhyaam namah,

sachee purandharaabhyam namah,

arundhatee vashishtaabhyaam namah,

shree seethaa raamaabhyaam namah,

namassarveybhyo mahaajaneybhya,

ayam muhoorthassumuhorthasthu

 

For us to do pooja we need a Assan and for making it sacred we do recite the below sloka and put some akshinta on our backside.

uththishtanthu bhoothapishaachaa

eythey bhoomibhaarakaah


eytheyshaa mavirodeynaa

brahmakarma samaarabhey

 

Next we do pranayama reciting the below

om bhooh, om bhuvah, ogum suvah, om mahah, om janah om thapah, ogumm sathyam ,

om 
thathsavithurvareynyam bhargo devasya deemahi dhiyo yonah prachodhayaath, 


om apojyothi rasomrutham brahma bhoorbuvassuvarom

 

Then we have to describe were we are positioned, what year month, thiti, day of the week, who we are (gothra and nama) and also what is it that we are expecting or doing this ritual

om mamopaaththa samastha dhurithakshayadhvaaraa shree parameshvara preethyardham subhey shobhney muhoorthey shree mahaavishnoraagnaayaa pravarthamaanasya adhyabrahmanah dhvitheeya paraardey shveytha varaahakalpey vaivasvatha manvamtharey kaliyugey prathamapaadey jamboodhveepey bharathavarshey,bharathakhamdey meyrordhakshinadhigbhaagey,shreeshailashya eeshaanyapradeyshey krishna/gangaa/godhaavaryormadhya deshey asmin varthamaana vyaavahaarika chandhramaana <telugu year name> samvathsarey  <uttarayana/dakshinayana> <telugu climate>rithau   <telugu month> maasey <sukla/Krishna> pakshey <telugu date>thithau <telugu weekday> vaasarey  shubhanakshathrey, shubhayogey, shubhakaraney, eyvamguna visheyshana vishishtaayaam, shubhathithau, shrimaan.<your gothra> gothrodbhavsya <your full name> naamadeyyasya shrimaatha<your gothra> gothrodbhavsya <your full name> naamadeyyasya asmaakam sahakutumbaanaam ksheyma sthairya dhairya vijaya abhaya, aayuraarogya aishvarya abhivrudhyartham dharmaardhakaamamoksha chathurvidha phalapurushaardha sidhdhyartham dhana, kanaka, vasthu vaahanaadhi samrudhdhyartham puthrapauthraabhi vrudhdhyardham, sarvaapadhaa nivaaranaardham, sakalakaarya vighnanivaaranaardham, sathsanthaana sidhyardham, puthrapouthrikaa naamsarvatho mukhaabhivrudhyardham, ishtakaamyaardha sidhdhyardham, sarvadevathaa svaroopinee shree durgaambikaa preethyardham yaavadhbakthi dhyaanaavaahanaadhi shodashopachaara varalakshmi poojaam karishyey.
