After, Naivedya, Mangalaruthi, and Lakshmi Aarathi.
Shravana Shukravara Lakshmi pooja is performed on all the Friday’s. This year it is performed on August 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd.
I have scanned and attached a document which has the complete details on performing Sri Lakshmi Pooja during Fridays and also Shravana Masa. This shouldn’t be confused for Sri VaraMahaLakshmi Vrata. I will post a separate post providing all details for Sri VaraMahaLakshmi Vrata.
This document has all the details from doing the Achamana, to Sankalpa, Dhyana, Naivedya, and Maha Mangalarathi.
It is a PDF document and is in Kannada.
