In Andhra we celebrate Varalakshmi Vratam. It usually falls on a Friday in August and although I didn’t know much about it when I was young (it was “just another puja” with lots of mantras and food), as I grew older I understood that married women worshipped 8 forms of Lakshmi for the prosperity of their families. Both in India and here in the US as my mother continued the tradition, it was a sort-of Ladies Day In.
So I got this idea to invite my girlfriends over for a Pink Lotus Party. As in Goddess Lakshmi sits on a pink lotus, so what better theme for a special puja brunch? I’m too late for this year (it falls on August 12th), but my planning wheels are churning for next year – to create beautiful memories for my daughter.
