Varalakshmi Vrat is an event celebrated every year for married women to offer their prayers to the goddess Lakshmi and receive her blessings for a happy and prosperous married life. The popular belief is that if the goddess is happy seeing the devotion and prayers of the women, she blesses them with whatever they wish for, and that can be wealth or any thing they dream of.

Women who observe this pooja must be on fasting till the pooja finishes. Women take bath early, and do a rangoli and place a sacred Kalasa with rice and a coconut to offer to Lakshmi, and the Vrat begins with prayers to Ganesha and then begins Lakshmi worship. It has been said that this pooja began when lordShivaa asked parvathi to do it, and some mythology says, it was after the prayers of a woman named Charumathi in Magadha empire that this practice began, and Lakshmi impressed by prayers offered them Vara meaning boon. On Varlakshmi vrat day, women eat Obattu, Puliyogare and by evening women visit other families and exchange sweets
