Dear Thanini Naidu,

As for as I know there is no vratam like Asta Lakshmi Vratam. The women perform Varalakshmi Vratam, Mangala Gowri Vratam etc.,

With His blessings,

H.K.Kishore

Tharini,

You have to buy Ashta Lakshmi Puja book and do the Puja.

I also searched the net for Ashta Lakshmi Puja but couldn't find it. I brought the book from India.

You can buy Sri Ashta Lakshmi Puja Vrata Kalpamu Published by Gollapudi Veeraswamy and Sons Rajahmundry 533101 .

If you want the book in Tamil you can get it from giritrading books.

Please see these links

You can also see these links for Astha Lakshmi Stotra

http://www.telugubhakti.com/telugup…

You can find Ashta Lakshmi Astotram in sanskrit.gde.

Today this site is not opening. I think there is some Technical problem.

Hi,

Ashta Lakshmi is eight forms of Adhi Sakti and you have to worship the eight Lakshmis separately. You can place "Kalasa" and do the puja reciting the ashta lakshmi stostram. The stosras are available in the following site: www.astrojyoti.com/ashtalakshmistot…

Or you can install Ashtalakshmi Yantra and do the puja, details are as follows:

1. First purify your body and start with a clear and positive mind frame 2. Find a place on the floor facing east, where you will be undisturbed. 3. Light the incense or diya. (It does not matter how many you light). 4. Lay a fresh flower and a fresh fruit on the altar. 5. Open the Yantra and place it along with the image of the deity of yantra and your isht God. 6. Take the water with any leaf from any tree and sprinkle the water on yourself followed by sprinkling the water on the Yantra. 7 Then purify your soul and surrender yourself completely in devotion to God and chant 108 times the following : "Om Namha Dhandayee Savaha" 8. Close your eyes and concentrate on the deity to bless you with wishes.Now with all sincerity, ask God to grant you the desire of your life that you wanted to be fulfilled in your own language

Astha Lakshmi Stotram

Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu, is the most sought after Goddess as she is the Goddess of wealth. What most people forget is that wealth is not just money. Wealth is of eight kinds and this Asthalakshmi Stotra is the worship of Lakshmi as the Goddess of the eight kinds of Wealth.
