Mahalakshmi will reside in your house when you light lamps regularly
"Om Lakshmi Ganapathaye Namah"
Chant "Om lakshmi Ganapathaye
Namah " 108 times :
Lord Ganesha has powers to bless you with happy married life.
We must shed off our ego, expectations and desires to lord ganesha
and humbly worship him . Surely Ganesha will take care of your life
. Join your palms and bow to Lord Ganesha to bless you and your
family with peace, good health and prosperity . Lord Ganesha will
surely bless you to do this simple Goddess Mahalakshmi Pooja every
Every day it takes only 10 to 20
minutes for " Mahalakshmi pooja" :
Devotees of Goddess Mahalskhmi Does a Mahalaxi pooja for 8 fridays
called "Vaibhav Lakshmi Pooja" . I really wish to include
a article about it seperately if any one is willing to contribute.
What you read now is simple "StarSai Mahalakshmi Pooja "
. I added the term star sai to this mahalakshmi pooja i created
by sai grace because personally i felt "Star" represents
the blessings of Lord Murugan ( Subramanya , Karthikeya - Brother
of lord ganesha as few north indians might not know ) and Sai ofcourse
is blessings of our Guru Shirdi Sai baba.)
Worship of Lord Kalyaana Subramaniyar ( Lord Murugan ) is a blessing
for peaceful married life.So uniting the blessings of Lord Karthikeya
, Shirdi Saibaba and Goddess Mahalakshmi , i felt this "StarSai
Mahalakshmi Pooja" if done regularly will make you realize
the caring nature of Goddess Mahalakshmi. She really takes care
of her devotees.
Simple Steps to Follow :
1. Offer some Milk or Water :
Naivaidya is the offering we keep for God. Every day in a small
vessel or glass , offer some milk , if not some water infront of
Goddess Mahalakshmi photo or statue. If you dont have one, you can
offer to shirdi saibaba or any gods photo in your house.If you have
a tulsi plant in house, just drop a single or few tulsi leaf in
the milk or water offering. It brings blessings of Lord Vishnu.
2. Light Two lamps :
Pray Goddess Mahalakshmi with pure devotion and light 2 lamps.
The lamps can either face north or east direction.
You can buy lamps in bronze which are affordable or silver lamps
or even use a simple earthern lamps as shown in the photo. If you
live abroad and only if you really cant manage to get lamps , candles
can be a alternative but trust me lamps are the greatest blessings.
Greatness of Lighting Ghee lamps
: its always good to use ghee for lighting lamps , if not
you can use oil like gingelly oil or other edible oil which can
be used for lighting lamps. Use cottion wicks .
3. Chant any Mantra of Goddess Mahalakshmi
or any simple mantra you know :
Try to learn small Mantra of Goddess Mahalakshmi like "Mahalakshmi
If not try to chant 108
holy names of Mahalaxmi - ( click to read )
I wrote "try to " because i wish even girls and guys
wh are not used to do pooja etc can understand that my intention
is not to make you religious or have a reason that if you do this
pooja surely you will have good married life. It all depends on
your own past karma. My intention is to make as many girls and guys
whos expecting a good married life to involve themselves in the
path of devotion.
So even if you are aware of all the mantras above or any other
sloka , recite them everyday after lighting lamps, if not try to
learn them its easy. If you still feel you need a simple mantra
to chant , simply continue to chant
Chant "Om lakshmi Ganapathaye
Namah " 108 times
Let Lord Ganesha bring you all the blessings
of Goddess Mahalaxmi to you and your family.
Have the milk or water as prasad
After doing this simple pooja every day for 10-20 minutes, you
can have the milk or water as prasad and give it to family members.
A spark of devotion :
Friends, women who are devoted might think i have not wrote a eloborate
pooja. I understand. My intention is to only give a spark of devotion.
When gurus blessings are there even as a spark of fire can make
huge sins in to ashes , let this simple "starsai mahalakshmi
pooja" inspire you to seek Gods blessings for a peaceful married
Did you learn the greatness of lighting
lamps ( diya , vilaku ) :
My dream is to spread the message of lighting lamps tradionally
in all houses . Even if you belong to other religion please cultivate
the habit of lighting lamps. Then imagine how much i will stress
Hindu families to light as many lamps as posible. The reason i have
kept a lamp photography for this pooja is that if you don't have
interest , mood or lets say time to do this poja atleast
"Light lamps regularly in house
Take proper care while lighting lamps. If you want to go for work
in morning time, in the evening or night what ever time you return
you can do this pooja / light lamps with devotion.
If you live abroad - Safe devotion
There might be some restrictions in smoke , fire usage etc in some
countries. where ever you live, take following care for safe devotion.
The reason i request you to pray Lord Ganesha when you start any
pooja is that Ganesha will take care of your house anf family and
wardoff any dangers or obstacles in your life.
1. You can use a metal plate or tray to keep
the diya or candles.
2. Don't let children near lamps n warn them
3. Better remain in house while lamps are
glowing , if you want to go out soon, then pour little ghee or oil.
Even if the lamps glow for 10 minutes you have gained the blessings.
I will be happy if you start to light lamps :
I understand not all who read this will have easy access to lamps,
diya etc. Try to purchase them. In india wicks can be got in bundles
in shops outside temple. If you mail me saying you have learnt the
value of lighting lamps from this little effort i did by grace of
shirdi saibaba, i will be happy. If you wrote that you are lighting
lamps lamps everyday its truely wonderful divine grace which has
pulled you to marriage pooja temple.
Other Pooja to lead you in the path
of devotion :
I have wrote a detailed much beautiful Goddess
you can try the detailed mahalakshmi pooja
1. Lighting Nine lamps every day
Ok firstly if you live abroad when ever you come to india, get
few simple little diya in bronze ( they call pithalai in tamil )
as silver lamps are costly. I have few lamps like this which i use
to permanently light lamps. If you live in india, great ! convince
your family members for allowing you to light 9 lamps everyday.
If they are interested , with properly care light lamps regularly
when ever you get time.
Eight lamps for each form of Lakshmi
- Ashta Lakshmi
Another one lamp for your Guru -
Shirdi Sai baba
So lighting these nine lamps everyday will truely be a blessing
for your family.
Ghee is expensive for some families, oil prices are increasing
but trust me there are saints who lived and spent all their wealth
for lighting lamps. So if you have interest you can light 9 lamps
regularly in house or any temple you visit near by.
2.Light 27 lamps to 108 lamps :
When ever some one writes me that they have a problem in getting
married or having some problems in married life, i request them
to go to a near by temple and light 27 lamps . They can also light
so many lamps in their house itself with proper care . Since there
are 12 raasi and 27 stars , i request people facing worst pains
to light 27 lamps atleast when ever they feel like. I wish to light
many lamps lets say when some one dear to me is celebrating birthdays
or someone is not feeling well etc.
Goddess of wealth Mahalakshmi is
really Goddess who will bless you with love :
Many times in my lie, i have realized that this goddess Mahalakshmi
shows so much love on her devotees . She will surely bless you with
peaceful married life. Some might get upset with mahalakshmi as
it might seem that shes not blessing you with wealth or lets say
a good career, business etc. Trust me, you have to be contented
with what she is blessing you with . She really gives you when you
As far as i am concerned , Goddess Mahalakshmi instantly gives
you love . So much love that you can really bow to her with tears
