Goddess Lakshmi pervades this Universe in the form of eight essential energies. Each force or energy is considered to be a form of Lakshmi – Sri (wealth), Bhu (Earth), Sarasvati (Learning), Preeti (Love), Keerti(Fame), Shanti (Peace), Thushti (Pleasure)and Pushti (Strength). The scriptures mention that any married woman performing this Vratam brings all the eight fortunes to her family. ‘Vara’ Lakshmi is the goddess who grants boons to her devotees without hesitation. Honoring the Goddess on this day is said to grow Dhanam (Money), Dhaanyam (Food or Gains), Aarogyam (Health), Sampath (Success), Santaanam (Progeny) and Dheerga Saumangalyam (well-being and longevity of husband).
