Varalakshmi Vratham Pooja
On the Friday before the full moon in the Tamil month of “Aadi,” which corresponds to the English months of July and August, Varalakshmi Vratha is observed. The purpose of the celebration is to honour the goddess Lakshmi. Varalakshmi is the name of the goddess of blessings (Varam).
Shakthi is represented by Lakshmi, the wife of Lord Vishnu. It is known that there are eight of these energies: Sri (Wealth), Bhu (Earth), Sarasvati (Learning), Priti (Love), Kirti (Fame), Shanti (Peace), Tushti (Pleasure), and Pushti (Strength). The collective name for the eight forces is Ashta Lakshmi, or “eight Lakshmis.”
All blessings are granted by Goddess Lakshmi to those who do Lakshmi Pooja with exceptional devotion and morality. Goddess Lakshmi is the god of abundance, light, prosperity, knowledge, fortune, and fertility. She is regarded as Lord Vishnu’s consort and brings stability in matters of money. To obtain the blessings of the goddess Lakshmi, this Pooja is conducted.
This pooja is performed by calling upon Goddess Lakshmi, chanting mantras, and then doing the pooja as prescribed by the shastras.

This pooja is performed especially during festival seasons like Diwali, as well as other holy days and days like Fridays, which are ideal for doing this pooja.
On the ninth day of Navaratri, Ayudha Pooja is to be observed. This process is often referred to as “Astra Pooja.” This poojai is performed for all the objects, tools, or supplies we utilise in our day-to-day professional lives because it is believed that any labour or profession we engage in is “LORD” himself.
All professional materials are decorated with sandals, kunkumam, and pooja items for this ceremony, and then Ganapathy and a Lakshmi pooja are celebrated for the professional materials to have a long life and be used properly.

To obtain Bhooma devi’s blessing, one performs the Bhoomi Pooja. Before beginning any new building work on the site, this task is among the most crucial ones that must be completed. By performing this poojai, we ask Bhooma Devi’s pardon for upsetting the balance of the planet while building new structures.
The north-east corner of the site or plot of land where construction is scheduled to begin is where this pooja is performed in order to obtain the favour of Vaastu Purushan and Bhoomi Devi.
