Here are some evidences where plenty suhagans have fulfilled their wishes by doing this puja.

A husband from Bangalore tried visa to the U S and his visa got rejected 4 times then his wife did vaibhav lakshmi vrat and within eight weeks of puja her husband got visa and flew t to the US and today he is the head of that branch in Uttara Khand.

With Vaibhav Lakshmi’s grace just within two weeks of puja her husband got RS. 2000/- unknowingly and her son got a job.

A man who was ailing with a disease and had lost hopes of living – his wife did this vrat and he was cured with simple treatment.
There are plenty to share,

  2. Sairam Anna,
    Yes you can start Prasanna Vaibhava Lakshmi Vrata any Friday, Honest to god, I did not fast when i started this puja. There is no hard and fast rule as to fasting, and not using sour items in your food and so on so do you can eat and do this puja but if you are a non vegetarian skip that. Usually you have to do this puja until you fulfill your wish. I liked this puja so i have been doing since 11 years. May goddess and sairam bless you to materialize your wish and loads of happiness.

  16. Namaste,
    Thanks alot for the informative and very helpful site.

    I would like to know if you are allowed to have milk and fruits during the day of the Vrat,
    and after doing the puja (after sunset) can you break your fast and have salt (after taking prasad that was offered) ?

  17. Namaste Sidhi,

    I don’t fast on Friday, i have regular meals, If you intend to fast you can eat fruits and milk during day and break your fast and have any food except non vegetarian and egg items if you are meat eater. But let me tell there is no hard and fast rule of fasting and avoiding salt and sour things in Vaibhava Lakshmi Vrata. You can have prasad and the regular meals.

    Take care,

    Sai ram

    Sunitha

  18. Namaste Sidhi,

    I have been doing this for 11 years now and i donot fast on fridays, i eat regular meals, do puja in the evening and have prasad and later dinner. Donot cook non vegetarian food or egg on fridays if you are a meat eater. If you still want to fast you can eat fruits and milk during day time and with prasad you can regular food for dinner.

He has explained in detail about each prayer and forms and given beautiful illustration about simple steps to follow while praying and doing puja, He has also highlighted about lighting 8 lamps to ashta lakshmi. This is a simple Puja.

    Vaibhava laksmi vrata is basically Gajalakshmi Puja, and the method has been given in detail. All forms are same Lakshmi. Hope this info has cleared your doubts.

    You have experienced this vrat and reaped the fruit already,

    Please start Sri Vaihava lakshmi vrat, as you have done earlier with this wish, you will be fulfilled. You dont have to be having plot, who knows you might buy a built house or a flat even. Do this puja with trust, faith, positive thinking and patience you will be materialized.

    Let goddess Lakshmi shover her blessings on you and fulfill your wish.

  31. Dear Sunitha ji and Venkatramana ji
    I found your independent posts enlightening.I want to clear some doubts regarding the vrata. According to the book of Vaibhav Lakshmi vrata, the pooja has to start after sunset. There is also a katha mentioned in the book apart from the stotras.Please advise me how to go about it. I have got all the samagri and intend to start tomorrow.

    Sincerely thanking you
    renu

  32. Should the katha follow the recitation of shlokas or is what u hav ementiond in the site enough?

  33. Sai ram Renuamin,

    I was out of town so….. delay in reply.
    Please follow what ever is mentioned in the site, it has everything.
    I do have the kannada literature if anybody needs to follow.

  35. I want to start with Vaibhav Lakshmi Pooja; But we stay in Sharjah – UAE and it is weekly holiday and my husband and son want me to be out with them sometimes .. i know it is difficult to change puja time but just asking can I do this pooja early morning? say between 4am and 5 am? If not I will manage as Godess Lakmi wants me to do this ( as I have come across this pagE)

  36. Dear madum/sir,
    I am mrs.praveena.r.rao from dubai . I want to perform varamahalaxmi vrath . But the problem is I don’t have mango leaves
    And betal leaves for kalash.here eating betal leaves & nuts are prohibited.that’s y I can’t take for pooja.pls guide me which method can use.I am waiting for ur mail. Hope u wil send .

  37. Hey Swati,
    Hope this will give you an answer.
    My husband had tried his US visa 7 consecutive times and got rejected by a concerned lady who issues visa. Every time to his luck she use to be there, and she boldly told my husband that there is no reason but she does not feel like stamp the visa on his passport. My husband had given hopes and said I have lost enough money on visa charges I will not apply anymore. I had faith in Goddess lakshmi so I asked him to give a last chance.At the same time I had started this vrata and taken oath for 16 weeks, but I was pregnant and was told to stop lakshmi puja during pregnancy, I did not know what to do. I decided to end the puja on 8th week itself and the same Friday My husband had been for visa – so i decided to do the puja morning and by Goddess lakshmi’s grace i did arti and at the same time I got a tinkle saying that He got Visa.
    So at times when you cannot perform puja you can go ahead and do at your convenience. so avoid those days when your family needs your presence and perofrm whenever you can in the evenings.
    Please don not think otherwise, i have shared this experience to bring in confidence while doing puja.

    May goddess Vaibhava lakshmi fulfill all your wishes.

  38. Dear Praveena,
    I have sent the kannada version of Sri Vaibhava lakshmi vrata via email as per your request.
    As I have mentioned in the Vrata You have to draw or place the photocopied rangoli (coloured photocopy will be good) then a thali filled with rice and on top of that a container or kalash filled with water and any ornament in it. You will be doing the puja on this. so go ahead and start the puja accordingly.
    Here Tulasi don’t survive so i have a silver tulsi pot and i perform puja every day.
    If you can afford and willing to invest – when you visit India – you can buy a silver kalash – with beetal leaves, coconut a small one would do with this your purpose will be solved and you can perform puja happily.
    Let the Goddess Vaibhava Lakshmi fulfill all your wishes.

  39. I need to get a PDF version of the Shree Vaibhav Lakshmi book in English. Can you anyone help me out? I was also told that I should not wish for money when I’m bring my sankalp. Is this true? I’m having money problems and truth be told, thats what I would like to pray for. Any help on that end?

  40. Sai Ram Kavi,
    Many people have been blessed with wealth, health, peace, happiness etc, I am one of them, So Goddess Vaibhava Lakshmi knows what to give and to be blessed. If you are lacking wealth please go ahead and pray for it and do the puja with due respect, trust and patience. You will be blessed. Do not give a hearing to those sayings, what you think you will get and happen. One should think positive.
    Regarding the english version – I don’t have but translated it in english and the same has been put by Venkat Brother,
    May goddess Vaibhava Lakshmi bless you in materializing your needs and dreams.

  41. Hello,

    I am 5 weeks pregnant and have been observing Laxmi vrat from last 2-3 years. I don’t want to stop the vrat. Please advise what I should do?

    Thanks,
    Mina

  42. Sairam Mina,

    Please go ahead and continue Vrat.
    But if you are practicing fast during vrat days please stop as you are pregnant.
    Good luck

    Sunitha

  43. Sairam,

    I am planning to start Vaibhavalakshmi Vratham.I have everything ready to do this.We are a meat eating family.I usually do not cook nonveg on any fridays,but is it ok to cook on other days except fridays or should we all stop eating meat till the vrat is completed.Please advice.

    Thanks,
    Sowmya

  44. Sairam Sowmya,

    You all can eat meat other days except Friday, For some reason if anyone wants to eat meat on Friday- can eat outside. Whoever does the Vrat should avoid eating meat only on Fridays.
    So….. You can start this vrat happily.
    Let Goddess Vaibhava Lakshmi fill your life with endless happiness.

    Sunitha

  45. Sairam Sunitha,

    Thanks for your reply.
    Today is my first day of Vaibhavalakshmi vratham.
    May Maa Laksmi shower her blessings on you and your family.

    I wish to take Vaibhava Lakshmi pooja, seeking the blessing from goddess to have a child.
    Since I am a working women i would like to know If I can perform this Pooja on the Friday mornings
    as am not sure of being at home within 5:30 pm.
    Please advice.

  47. Sairam Lakshmi,

    If it is possible to start puja by 6:30 pm also its fine. Otherwise you can go ahead and do the puja in the early morning itself. As I was awaiting a result by noon I did it at noon and during arti time I got the news.
    So Shradha, Saburi, Bhakti is what needed in doing Puja,
    Let goddess shower her blessings with a healthy Child.

    Sairam

  48. If i am observing vrat, should I stop @ the time of pregency?

  49. Sairam Akanksha,
    If you are comfortable in continuing the Vrat, then please continue and do not stop.

    God bless you with a healthy, baby.

  50. Sai Ram Sunitha,

    I was guided by a friend of mine abou the Govarannalakshmi Pooja Today. I am currently struggling in a fight to get married to hte man i love. His parents are completely against it as we belong to different castes. A friend of mine told me that by doing the Govaranna Lashmi Vratha for 21 / 41 days i will be able to get blessed with the prayer that i am asking for.

    I read all the comments and details on this site and am feeling very encouraged and have strong faith that this will help us.

    I consider the news to me as Matha Lakshmi’s way of showing me a solution.

    Please guide me as you are blessed byt the Goddess with immense knowledge.

    Thank You.

    Sairam
