Wednesday Fast for Money and Removing Problems

Budhwar Ka Vrat or Keeping a Fast on Wednesdays is considered to be beneficial in resolving money, finance or business related problems and obstacles or for finding a solution for problems and dangers from rivals, competitors or enemies or protection from sudden demise, accidents and calamities.

There are 2 basic ways to keep this Fast-
1] For anything to do with wealth, money, business and job related or material and financial problems, you have to dedicate the Budhwar Ka Vrat towards the Wealth Goddess Lakshmi Mata.

2] For freedom from enemy problems, protection from untimely and sudden death, accidents and calamities, you have to dedicate the Budhwar Ka Vrat towards Hanuman.

The chosen deity should be worshiped according to the prescribed norms for that deity. If you wish you can chant 1 Mala of any preferred Mantra of your chosen deity [Lakshmi or Hanuman] or recite their Chalisa once on this day. The Mantras can be seen here -
