Mahalaxmi Vrat Story

It is a matter of ancient times that once a poor Brahmin lived in a village. That Brahmin used to worship Shri Vishnu regularly. Pleased with her devotion to her worship, Lord Vishnu appeared to her and asked the Brahmin to ask for her wish, the Brahmin expressed her desire to have Lakshmi Ji’s residence in her house.

Hearing this, Shri Vishnu ji told the Brahmin the path of attainment of Lakshmi. In which Shri Hari told that a woman comes in front of the temple who comes here and serves.

After Goddess Lakshmi ji comes to your house, your house will be filled with money and grain. Saying this, Shri Vishnu went away. The next day he sat in front of the temple at four o’clock in the morning. When Lakshmi ji came to set up the Brahmin, she requested him to come to her house.

Lakshmi ji told the Brahmin that you fast Mahalakshmi, by fasting for 16 days and offering the moon to the moon on the sixteenth day, your desire will be fulfilled. The Brahmin fasted and worshiped according to the goddess’s direction and called the goddess towards the north, Lakshmi ji fulfilled her promise. From that day, this fast is fulfilled by the person’s desire to do this law.
