Let's know how to do Lakshmi Puja on Diwali
Those people especially women who work in their offices till late hours, hardly find time for shopping. Amid the frequent fights of husbands and wives, they reach the market and husband tells "am sitting in the car, you go and come asap".

Hmmm so half the spirit is down by this time. Forget everything ladies, cheer up and think about the Diwali puja that has to be done at home. Working girls and ladies don't know much about puja. So lets increase our religious knowledge. Some basic knowledge is given that will not take much time.

First come to the puja timings:

Lakshmi Puja Muhurta - 17:40 pm to 19:35 pm

Auspicious Choghadiya Muhurat for Diwali Lakshmi Puja:

  • Morning Muhurta (Labh, Amrit): 06:49 - 09:28

  • Morning Muhurta (Shubh): 10:47 - 12:07

  • Afternoon Muhurta (Char, Labh): 14:45 - 17:24

  • Evening Muhurta (Shubh, Amrit, Char): 19:05 - 23:16

How is Puja done?

Decorate your home with marigold flowers and Ashoka, mango and banana leaves on the day of Lakshmi Puja. You can use silk clothes for gods' idols. Generally, Lakshmi Puja is done during the time, which starts after sunset and approximately lasts for 2 hours. Buy a new photo of goddess Lakshmi and Ganeshji. In front of this photo or idol meditate of Bhagawati Lakshmi.

After Shri Lakshmi has been invoked, take five flowers in Anjali (by joining palm of both hands) and leave them in front of the Murti. Then wash feet of all idols. Then offer water to Shri Lakshmi for head Abhishekam. Offer scent bath to Shri Lakshmi. Then comes the turn of moli. Offer moli to Shri Lakshmi. Offer honey and milk to all idols. Put on the jewellery on idols. Red sandalwood is also offered to Devi. Then offer vermilion to Shri Lakshmi for Tilak. The unbroken rice are offered to Devi. Then offer chandan, dhoop and flowers to all idols.

Offer symbolic Pradakshina (circumambulate from left to right of Shri Lakshmi) with flowers. Then one should seek pardon from Shri Lakshmi for any known-unknown mistakes done during Puja.

By following the above procedure you can give leave to Panditji. It is more loveable and when husband and wife perform the pooja together. In this way one can forget the past mistakes of each other.

Diwali is a festival of happiness so all guys cheer up this Diwali. Enjoy Diwali. Please don't use fireworks that make noise. The poor stray dogs, cows are scared with the bang noise. Even the birds can also loose their hearing ability. So guys enjoy Diwali, stay safe and let other stay safe too.

Happy Diwali!!
