It’s time to welcome Goddess Lakshmi! After Durga Puja, it’s time for Diwali – the festival of lights, crackers, sweets and lots of fun. The most important and much awaited Puja in India, it is celebrated with grandeur all over the country!
Goddess of Wealth who is believed to bring prosperity and wealth to the family is welcomed with colourful decoration of house candles, oil lamps and electric lights. Yummy delicacies and various types of home-made sweets are offered to Maa Lakshmi. According to the Hindu epic, Maa Lakshmi loves cleanliness and first visits the most clean home to shower her blessings. So the oil lamps (Diyas) and candles are lit from evening till morning for welcome of the wealthy goddess.
Laxmi Puja is also celebrated during Diwali when people buy new ornaments of gold, silver, precious gemstones and also utensils as a mark of good luck, prosperity and wealth. These newly bought things are used on Lakshmi Puja night with devotional prayer. Generally five Gods Ganesh (Vighneshvara), Mahalakshmi (Goddess of wealth), Saraswati (goddess of learning), and Mahakali (goddess of power) and Kubera (treasurer of Gods) are worshiped on this festival. The rangoli using various colors are drawn at the doorstep of houses to welcome Maa Lakshmi.
Also big puja pandals are created for idols of Goddess Lakshmi in cities of Kolkata, Bhubaneswar, and Guwahati for celebration. This festival is believed to be auspicious for starting new businesses, buying house, booking property for the family. Keeping the faith, many brands introduce discounts on shopping across the festival season.
