Tell all of you that Varlakshmi fast is kept in Hinduism, which is on 9th August this time. In Hinduism, Varlakshmi Vrat is considered to be a very holy fast and after this day worship, we should listen to the story that we have brought to you today. Just listening to it cuts off all suffering. Let us know.
What is Varlakshmi Vrat Katha - According to legend, there used to be a town called Kundi in Magadha state. According to the legend, the city of Kundi was built from heaven. In this town, a Brahmin woman, Charumati, lived with her family. Charumati was a merciful woman who lived a perfect woman's life by serving her mother-in-law, father-in-law and husband and worshipping mother Lakshmi Ji.
There is a night when Charumati's mother Lakshmi dreamt and said, "Charumati do only Varlakshmi Vrat for my sake every Friday." With the effect of this fast, you must attain the desired fruit. Then, the very next morning, Charumati duly worshipped Lakshmi Vrat, mentioned by her mother Lakshmi, along with other women of the society. When the pooja was over, all the women started revolving around Kalash, while the bodies of all the women were adorned with various gold ornaments.
Even their houses became gold and they had horses, elephants, cows, and cattle. All the women began to praise Charumati because it was Charmati who told her about this fasting method. Over a period of time, Lord Shiva told Mata Parvati that only by listening to this fast, the blessings of Mother Lakshmi are attained.
