Diwali 2021 Laxmi Pooja Vidhi

  • All the family members should gather at the home temple or the place of Puja.
  • Offer Chunri, flowers, and Roli to Mahalaxmi.
  • Keep all the ornaments, and other things related to the money (property papers, wallets, credit cards, debit cards) in front of Maa Laxmi in a separate Thali having symbols of Swastika made using turmeric. It is done for having the blessing of Maa Laxmi for monetary aspects and showing that whatever you have is because of the Goddess.
  • Wash Diyas and keep them in a thali. Fill them all with oil or Ghee and wick.
  • Keep a big size Diwali Diyas in a separate thali on the base of rice grains. Remember that every Thali should have Swastika symbols made using turmeric or Roli.
  • Light all the Diyas and offer Aarti Shri Ganesha (because every Puja should start with worshipping Lord Ganesha) and Maa Laxmi with a pure heart.
  • Thank Maa Laxmi and all the deities for their blessings.
  • Place the small Diyas in different places of your home and let the big Diya be placed in front of Maa Laxmi.
  • What to offer as Bhog?

    Diwali is a beloved festival, and it should be celebrated with utmost zest. Prepare tasty dishes that you do only on special occasions and offer everything to Maa Laxmi before the family consumes them. Make sure that there is no use of Garlic and Onions for the Bhog prepared for deities. And there should be Diwali sweets too! Those who are able and can afford it should go for Chappan Bhog.

    Importance of Diwali Laxmi Puja

    On Diwali, people worship Goddess Laxmi and God Ganesha together. Ganesha is the lord of wisdom and intellect and is worshipped to destroy obstacles of life and bring prosperity to new beginnings. Goddess Laxmi is revered as the Goddess of luxury, wealth, and fortune. According to Hindu mythology, Goddess Laxmi visits the house of her devotees on Diwali night and blesses them with great happiness, wealth, and luxuries in life. And this is the reason why we clean our home from corner to corner before the Diwali festival.
