The brightness of the full moon brings special joy and marks the changing season, the end of the monsoon. It was also on this night over 5,000 years ago that Lord Krishna and Radhaji revealed the Supreme Divine bliss to innumerable Gopis in Vrindavan.
At night, goddess Lakshmi is worshiped and night vigil is observed. According to Puranic scriptures One who keep awake all this night worshiping Goddess Lakshmi ,will be surely blessed by the Goddess.
On this day Goddess Laxmi moves around the world at midnight, with boons and assurance of protection, resolving, ?Who is awake on earth? I will grant wealth to one who is awake worshiping me at this hour.?
This vrata is observed every year and it pleases Goddess Laxmi immensely. Propitiated with this fast, Goddess Laxmi grants one prosperity in this world and a supremely elevated state in the next.
