These Three Major Festivals Will Make 17 September Special!

1. Mahalaxmi Vrat

Mahalaxmi Vrat is a 16 day occurrence where devotees observe fasts for 16 days to appease the goddess of wealth and prosperity, Maa Laxmi. Every year, this fast begins on the Ashthmi Tithi of Bhadrapada month and ends on the Ashtami Tithi of Shukla Paksha of the Ashwin month. This year, Mahalaxmi Vrat started on 3 September and will now end on 17 September. The last day of this fast is the most significant and devotees conduct Puja with proper rituals on this day seeking blessings of Maa Laxmi. When appeased, Maa Laxmi blesses the devotees with immense wealth and prosperity.

Mahalaxmi Vrat Shubh Muhurat

According to the Hindu Panchang, the Ashtami Tithi will begin on Saturday, 17 September, at 2:17 pm, and end on Sunday, 18 September, at 4:35 pm. So this is the most auspicious timing to observe this fast.

Puja Rituals For The Last Day Of Mahalaxmi Vrat

  • On the last day, an urn or Kalash is worshiped. So, fill an urn with water, Akshat, and a few coins. 
  • Now place a coconut on the top of this Kalash and cover its neck with betel and mango leaves. 
  • Apply vermillion, sandalwood, and turmeric on the coconut and the urn.
  • Tie a new clean cloth on the urn, which is the symbol of the Goddess. It is then worshiped by the devotees. 
  • In the end, finish the Puja by distributing Prasad among people.

2. Kanya Sankranti

Among the 12 Sankranti that fall in a year, Kanya Sankranti is one of the most significant. It is the time when the Sun exits the Leo zodiac sign and enters the sign of Virgo.
