Shraavana maasa is said to mark the beginning of all vrathas..Everyday in ShraavaNa maasa has its own significance especially fridays and saturdays.. Rangoli or Muggulu or Kolam is an art that forms an integral part and parcel of festivals in Hindu culture which is a combination of art,drawing and painting.. One can draw rangolis that has been followed traditionally or the limit is their imagination level..

There is a custom in brahmin families to write a Rangoli form called “Lakshmi hrudaya Kamala–ಲಕ್ಷ್ಮಿ ಹೃದಯ ಕಮಲ ರಂಗೋಲಿ” meaning Rangoli that resembles Lotus, the flower that symbolises Goddess Lakshmi.. Goddess Lakshmi is said to be resembling the flower Lotus, sitting on Lotus, holding lotuses in both hands and arms, her eyes resembling Lotus petals, and Kamala is another name of Goddess Lakshmi..

This Rangoli is usually drawn on Shraavana shukravaara or four fridays of Shraavana maasa in front of the Goddess Lakshmi or in a plate/thali … Below I have put the hand drawn rangoli for your references which I learnt from my grandmom Smt Lalithamma who is an expert in drawing varieties of awesome rangolis..
