The Laxmi pooja is central to the Diwali celebrations. The goddess Laxmi bestows wealth and prosperity. She is the consort to the Lord Vishnu and is the goddess of wealth. The Laxmi Narayan couple is popularly worshipped in the homes of Hindus. Laxmi is worshipped on the amavasya (the dark night) of Diwali. It is widely believed that Laxmi walks through the houses on this night and showers her blessings for prosperity and wealth on the inhabitants who perform the Laxmi Pooja.
In preparation for the Laxmi pooja the house is cleaned and decorated. It is believed that Laxmi visits the cleanest house before the rest. Lamps are lit everywhere to illuminate the house so she can see her way. The Lord Ganesha is worshipped first as the remover of obstacles to prosperity. This is followed by an elaborate Pooja ritual. Several delicacies are prepared and offered to the Gods. Sweets are especially made and offered to the goddess Laxmi.
The pooja comes to an end after offeringÂ Â sweets to the goddess Laxmi. Sweets offered to Shri Mahalaxmi must be prepared with a pure consciousness. This appeases her and she in turn bestows bounty on the worshippers. Special sweets are offered to the goddess Laxmi just to please her. It is these sumptuous sweets offered to the gods that make Diwali very special. Sweets are also distributed to near and dear ones along with Diwali greetings.
