Suta Puranika addresses Shaunaka and other rishis thus: "Let me tell you a story about a Vrita which gives all the benefits and pleasure of this world to women. This Vrita was once narrate Parameshwara to Parvathi". One day Parvati Devi approaches Lord Parameshwara who is seated in agolden throne studded with jewel. She prostrates and asks him thus:"Lord, is there any way by which women in Bhu attain wealth, property, progeny and be happy. Please tell me by worshipping whom, bywhat Vrita and also if that Vrita was performed by anybody in the past".Parameshwar replies: "Manohari, yes there Varalaxmi Vrita which should be performed by women in Shravana Masa on the Friday before th efull moon day of shukla pakSha". He further narrates the details of Shri Varalaxmi Vrita. In Kundina city of Magadha Desha , there lived a pativrita saadvi by name Charumati. Everyday she woke up early in the morning, worshipped her husband with devotion, served her in-laws w respect and she remained pleasant in her manners all thru the day. One night in her dream, Charumati saw Goddess Laxmi who said "I'm Varalaxmi Devi and I've appeared before you as I'm pleased with you. If you worship me on the Friday before Shravana Shukla Poornima, I'll grant all your wishes". In her dream itself, Charumati praised Varalaxmi Devi through various stotras and says, "O Jagajjanan your blessings people can become scholars, affluent and contented. It is my ' poorva janma sukrita' to have you appear in my dream'. Pleased by Charumati's humility, Laxmi showered boons on her and disappeared. Charumati immediately woke up and explained her dream to her husband, in-laws and companions and all of them encouraged her to perform the pooja as told by the Goddess. All of them e waited for the day. On that Friday, they woke up early morning, took bath and wore silk sarees and then cleaned the whole house with 'gomaya', decorated the altar, placed the kalasham on the newly harveste invited Goddess Varalaxmi and performed the pooja with all shraddha and bhakti. They tied the holy thread with 9 knots around their right wrist, offered various food items to the Goddess and did 'pradakShin namaskaras'. By the time they did 3 pradakShina namaskaras, by Laxmi's blessings, they were decked with jewels like anklets, bangles and such other ornaments studded with nine precious stones. turned gold and they possessed horses, elephants and charriots. Charumati and her companions honoured brahmins with 'dakShina tambula' , received their blessings and ate the prasadam reverence. Ever since, Charumati and other ladies performed this Vrita regularly and lived happily. Lord Parameshwar concludes saying, 'Parvati, this supreme Vrita can be performed by anybody (without the barrier of the varnas) and the performer will get all his wishes fulfilled. One who r story and one who listens to this story will attain success and benevolence with the blessings of Shri Varamahalaxmi".
