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.
Hindus worship Goddess Lakshmi in houses and temples. A special worship is offered to her annually on the auspicious day of Diwali, with religious rituals and colourful ceremonies specifically devoted to her.
We also worship Lord Ganesha. He symbolizes auspiciousness and wisdom. Lord Ganesha is worshipped by the Hindus on the festival of lights.
Lord Ganesha is the son of Shiva and Parvati. He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. In fact, Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities whose idolatry is glorified as the Panchayat Ana puja.
