Here is the story behing this Puja
In a small town of Kundina, there lived a simple and kind Brahmin woman named Charumathi. She loved her husband and family very much. Impressed by her sincere devotion towards her family, Laxmi Devi came into her dreams one night. She asked her to perform the Vara Laxmi pooja explaining her every simple thing about the puja. Apart from the details, the goddess also told that she has to perform this puja on the Friday just before the Shravana Purnima. Charumati woke up and told about the dream to her family, who encouraged her to proceed with the pooja. Charumati told about the pooja to her friends and neighborhood and the word spread out in the town. Thus on that year, all the women from the town worshiped varalakshmi devi with their sincere dedication. They all chanted“Padmaasane Padmakare sarva lokaika poojithe
Narayana priyadevi supreethaa bhava sarvada”
