Home Sutra: Follow These Vastu Tips When Performing Lakshmi Puja This Diwali [Video]
On Diwali, the festival of lights, we pray to goddess Lakshmi to shower her blessings on us. While we celebrate the festival by lighting lamps and bursting crackers, one of the key ritual that every member of the household has to perform is Lakshmi Puja. The puja begins by offering prayers to Lord Ganesha, followed by Goddess Lakshmi who is worshipped in her three forms — Mahalakshmi, Mahasaraswati and Mahakali. The treasurer of gods, Kuber, is also worshipped in this puja.
The word Lakshmi is derived from Sanskrit word “Laksme” which means 'goal'. Goddess Lakshmi is also called “Shri”, the female of the Supreme Being. The goddess is worshipped for prosperity, success and personal virtue. Hence, the puja is performed for prosperity in family, material abundance and spiritual prosperity. Moreover, it is also known to remove any kind of obstacle that may be preventing you from starting on a spiritual path or a business venture.
So, this Diwali, bring together all your family members and worship Goddess Lakshmi to bring prosperity in your lives.
