Rukmini Ashtami festival is celebrated on the eighth day of the month of Pausha, Krishna Paksha, if you believe in the Hindu calendar, and this special day is being celebrated today i.e. December 19. Today Rukmini Ashtami is celebrated and according to religious beliefs, on the same date in Dwapar Yuga, Krishna's wife Devi Rukmini was born. Goddess Rukmini is said to be the incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi and on this day worships Goddess Rukmini exclusively with Shri Krishna. By doing this, you get wealth and money and there is no shortage of anything in the house and by doing this, you get the grace of Goddess Lakshmi. So let's know the method of worship.
