Lakshmi Jayanti is the birth anniversary of Goddess Lakshmi. Goddess Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and prosperity. It is believed that Goddess Lakshmi was born on Phalguna Purnima during the great churning of milky ocean which is popularly known as Samudra Manthan.
It is significant to note that day of Phalguna Purnima mostly coincides with Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra. Hence the day of Uttara Phalguni is also associated with Lakshmi Jayanti. Lakshmi Jayanti is observed mainly in South India and it is less known in North Indian states.
The day of Lakshmi Jayanti is significant to appease the Goddess of wealth and prosperity. People perform Lakshmi Homam on Lakshmi Jayanti. During Lakshmi Homa Goddess Lakshmi Sahasranamavali i.e. 1000 names of Goddess Lakshmi and Shri Suktam are recited. To appease Mahalakshmi lotus flowers dipped in honey are used for Ahuti.
