The Importance of Laxmi Pooja
The festival is synonymous to the worship of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth in her most benevolent mood, fulfilling the wishes of her devotees. According to legend the Goddess was created from the churning of the ocean today, and therefore a special ‘pooja’ is performed to worship her on the day of Diwali. Adherents show reverence to the Goddess Lakshmi by placing small oil lamps or candles inside and outside their homes. To welcome the Goddess, devotees clean their houses, decorate them with finery and lights, and prepare sweet treats and delicacies as offerings. Devotees believe the happier Lakshmi is with the visit, the more she blesses the family with health and wealth. Join us today for the ‘laxmi pooja’ and be part of the ceremonies, customs and rituals in a traditional Indian home with a noble family of the erstwhile Jaipur state.
