BENGALURU: Varamahal­akshmi, festival of Hindus, is celebrated with Onam (festival of Kerala) on the same day in the City on Friday.

According to the Hindu cal­endar, Varamahalakshmi is cel­ebrated in the month of Shravana Maasa (August and September), specifically on second Friday of the month. Shravana Maasa is considered to be Lord Vishnu’s month.

People believe that during this festival, Lakshmi (Lord Vishnu’s wife) will not say no to anything and would fulfill all their desires.

According to Dakshina Mur­thy temple priest Kumar Deek­shit, “the rituals must be per­formed before sunrise.”

The deity is decorated with five leaves,refer to the five el­ements of nature, and coconut, symbolic representation of the fulfillment of their needs or wishes.

Bengaluru celebrates this fes­tival with grandeur and splen­dour.
