Lalita Saptami Vrat, also known as Kukkuti Vrata, is observed for a year starting from the saptami tithi during the Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapad month (seventh day during the waxing phase of moon in Bhadrapad month). The vrat is observed for one year on the seventh day in both the fortnights of every month. Lalita Saptami is celebrated in the honour of Sri Lalita devi. Lalita saptami is the appearance day of Sri Lalita devi who was the favourite sakhi of Sri Radha devi. Lalita Saptami falls exactly a day before the holy appearance of sri Radharani (Radhashtmi).
