16 days before


Mahalakshmi Vrat begins on Shukla Ashtami during Bhadrapada month which comes after four days of Ganesha Chaturthi. Mahalakshmi Vrat is observed for sixteen consecutive days which ends on Krishna Ashtami during Ashwin month (as per Purnimanta calendar followed in North India). Depending on leaped and skipped Tithi during fasting period, total fasting days might reduce to fifteen days or might increase to seventeen days. The fasting is done to appease and seek blessing of Mahalakshmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity.





Bhadrapada Shukla Ashtami is also observed as birth anniversary of Goddess Radha which is popularly known as Radha Ashtami. The day, when Mahalakshmi Vrat begins, is significant as this day coincides with Durva Ashtami Vrat when Durva grass is worshipped. The same day is also observed as Jyeshta Devi Puja which is performed for three consecutive days.
