I'm sorry to tell you this...but Mangos don't grow in Switzerland. I'm sure your god will understand the inconvenience.

Mango trees in CH? I think you will have better luck at an Indian supermarket maybe?

Re: need mango leaves

Could you possibly print out mango leafs and use them to symbolize real ones?

There is an Indian in town...I will check whether they have some.

Hi,

Do you know of any major/nice south indian temples in Zurich? I found a shiva shakti one, but any others?

Hii...

Varalakshmi Vratham is an important ritual for married women in South India. This year it falls on August 12, 2011. Devotees of Goddess Lakshmi, goddess of wealth and prosperity, observe the vratham. Varalakshmi refers to the goddess granting boons. On this day, worship of goddess Lakshmi is equivalent to worshipping the goddess of Wealth, Earth, Pleasure, Strength, Fame, Learning, Love and Peace –Ashtalaksmi....
But i dnt have any idea why mango leaves are required for this..i havent heard about that!!!!!!!

Re: need mango leaves

So I went to the Indian store yesterday and they didn't have any mango leafs. Seem quite the hard item to obtain. I hope you'll be able to find some though.

Re: need mango leaves

Maybe if you go to where they sell mangos (the supermarkets and subcontinent shops) you'll find some in the packing crates. Do you just need one or two?
