Deepawali – Laxmipujan

The most auspicious day among the festive days of Deepawali perhaps is the Laxmipujan, when Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and Ganesha, the God of auspicious beginnings are worshipped across all Hindu homes, followed by lighting of diyas / lamps all across the streets and homes, distributing sweets as prasad to welcome prosperity and well-being in. Lakshmi Pooja, thus marks the most important day of Deepawali celebrations.
