Diwali Laxmi Puja

Goddess Lakshmi is associated with wealth and prosperity.

She is believed to have appeared during the churning of the celestial milky ocean by the Gods and Demons. Lord Vishnu is Her consort and Her abode is the Lord's Heaven.

Indian households who celebrate the festival of lights perform Lakshmi Puja to stay blessed with the Goddess's divine mercy. This brings an abundance of success, health and prosperity.

It is believed that Goddess Lakshmi guides one through the path of business and spirituality.

Goddess Lakshmi is believed to reside in clean houses with active and enterprising people who genuinely revere Her. This is why people thoroughly clean their houses and worship Her with great devotion on the third day of Diwali.
