Diwali is associated with Puja that all the family performs together. We bring to you the significance of Diwali Puja and why is it celebrated:
Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth and prosperity. The word ”Lakshmi” is derived from the Sanskrit word Laksme, meaning ”goal.” She is also called ”Shri”, the female of the Supreme Being. She is worshipped for promotion, success and personal virtues.
Lakshmi Puja is performed for prosperity, material abundance, and spiritual prosperity. She is worshipped to help us with our troubles that prevent us from starting a spiritual path or business.
