Pre preparatory works On Thursday morning,wash all the pooja vessels and kalasha pot. Wash the lamps, keep kumkum dots and put threads. Oil the lamp and keep it ready for the next day use. Make the thoran and pongu nool and arrange the other pooja things in a plate. You can also prepare the stuffing for sweet pooran kozhukattai,soak the pulses for sundal and grind the batter for idli.
Apply turmeric on the sides and draw 2 lines using kumkum. It is partitioned into three divisions. This pooja is done to welcome Goddess Lakshmi and it shows the beginning of next day function. Light the lamp, perform pooja by keeping some neivdeyam like sundal , sweet appam etc. Read the Varalakshmi Vratham story. I have attached the story picture in Tamil.
Please refer it. Some people read the stories on Friday after completing the pooja. So its your choice. Remember you should not keep the kalasha now. It should be kept only on Friday. In that Kundinagram town, Goddess Adilakshmi, being pleased by her devotion tells Charumathi in a dream and directed her to perform the vrata to enable her to fulfil her desires. Charumathi wakes up and tells her husband about the dream.
Charumathi along with some neighbourhood women takes bath in the early morning hours and prepare a mandapam and invites Varalakshmi Devi.
She recites the following sloka along with other women with utmost faith and devotion. On the completion of the first circumstance, she heard she found Gajjelu, Andelu and other ornaments. On the second circumstance, they found kankanams made of navaratnams to their hands.
On completion of the third circumstance, they found immense wealth. Then Charumathi offers Tambulam to the brahmin priests and distribute the vrata prasadam to the relatives and lead a happy life. Since then, Hindu women perform this vrata with utmost faith and trust till today. With this, Lord Eswara concludes telling the story to Goddess Parvathi.
Thoram is made by taking 9 strings of thread. Put 9 knots in equal intervals. Thoram has to be tied around your wrist and Pongu nool is nothing but a single thread smeared with turmeric powder. You should tie it around your neck. Keep the thoram,Pongu nool,9 betel leaves, 9 betel nuts, 9 banana, 9 dates, 9 turmeric sticks, kumkum box,Karimani mala black beads chain in a plate and keep it ready for pooja.
You can do all these works on Thursday night itself. Some people add kumkum, turmeric powder, dry fruits in the water. So please make the kalasha according to your tradition. On the top of kalasha, place 5 mango leaves keep in odd numbers and keep a coconut smeared with turmeric. The tail portion of coconut should face upward.
Kalasam should face east. After making the kalasha, keep a kumkum dot and keep aside till you make other arrangements. The next day i. Wash the place where the pooja is going to be held. One should observe fasting till the Pooja is finished Elderly woman can have milk and fruits. Spread a banana leaf and put some raw rice If you have done this on Thursday night, skip this step and proceed to the next step. Place the kalasha over the rice. Cover the coconut using a new blouse piece made into cone shape by referring the video link given below.
To this coconut, an image of Goddess Lakshmi is fixed or the image of Lakshmi made using turmeric powder. My friend makes the face of Lakshmi using turmeric powder as shown in the second picture. In some areas, women place a mirror behind the kalasham. So you can buy and fix it with the blouse piece. Now the kalasham symbolically represents Goddess Lakshmi.
Decorate the idol with dress and Jewelries and garlands. You can dress it with a tucked saree or skirt Pavadai. Put some jewels Preferably gold and tie a pongu nool around the neck. Now Goddess Lakshmi idol is ready to perform pooja. Light the lamps at the time of pooja and start doing it.
Please refer this video for decorating Goddess Lakshmi Idol. So make a small cone shaped Ganesha using turmeric powder Manjal pillayar. Place it near the kalasha. Read the sthothram given below and worship Lord Ganesha to do this pooja without any obstacle and after chanting the sthothram, move the Ganesh towards North direction.
