Query from: ig, usa, 06/28/01
Topic: SPIRITUALITY      Submitted on: Ammas.com
Hi Amma,

One of my friend said "Vaibhav Lakshmi" puja is very good for everything. She told me to read Mahalakshi astakam and VaibhavLakshmi story. I do not have any idea about this puja. Can you please give me details about this puja. In the place I am living, there are no good Indian stores where I can get these type for books also. So if there is any site on which I can download the story, that would be really helpful.

I have "Lalitha sahasranama stotram". So can i read that on fridays instead of Vaibhav Lakshmi puja? All Devis are one and same. Right?

Thanks for the help.

Hi ig,

For Mahalakshmi astakam, I give below a site you can visit. However, I will try to find out Vaibhav Lakshmi Puja. I have given site name for general Lakshmi Puja. http://sanskrit.bhaarat.com/The_Doc… http://hinduism.about.com/library/w…

Dear ig, I too am told by my friends.It is really good. There is separate book for vaibhavalakshmi pooja.U can get it from india. I too did the same.Details will be given in the book itself.I dont think u can get in usa.Pooja method is,u have to do this vratam on fridays only. u have to do for 11 or 22 fridays.if u rin periods or out of town , then u shouldn't do. Do it in the next week in ur own house.U have to fast the whole day or half day.If u cant do this then no compulsion.U have to keep sriyantra and lakshmi devi idol. infront of it keep kalasa filled with water.On that keep a new bowl.Keep a gold ornament(it may be even a ring) or a rupee.Do pooja with kumkum and flowers.offer naivedyam and give aarti. U can offer even sugar.At the end ( of all weeks) u have to distribute vaibhava lakshmi books.U have to complete the weeks u have said to do before.ALL devis are one form. But particularly we pray lakshmi roopam(form) in this vratam. lalitha sahasram is really good.But for VL pooja better to do in the same way given in the book. for more information visit this site.http://www.vishuji.com/shrivaibhava…
