Laxmi Puja

Lakshmi Puja is a Hindu religious festival that falls on Amavasya, the third day of Diwali. Adherents show reverence to the Goddess Lakshmi by placing small oil lamps or candles inside and outside their homes. They pray for prosperity and well-being for their families and businesses. According to legend, Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and Vishnu’s wife, visits her devotees and bestows gifts and blessings upon each of them. 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.
