Varamahalakshmi Pooja

Today is Varamahalakshmi Pooja/ Varalakshmi Nombu. I was introduced to this festival after marriage at my in-law’s place. You can read about this festival here.

Am not a very religious person and don’t do Poojas or visit temples on a regular basis. My prayers happen at a heart to heart level mostly. Am a very forgetful person when it comes to rituals and poojas and constantly bug my poor mother in law every time to ask what next 🙂  So, this time I decided to keep a record of what preparations go into this Pooja in my house for my easy reference in future 🙂
