How to perform Goddess Lakshmi Pooja on 19th Oct 2017

Laxmi Ganeshji Photo for Diwali PoojanHindus all over the world worship Lakshmiji as the embodiment of wealth  riches and prosperity. The Night of  Kartik Amavasya is celebrated all over the world as the Lakshmi Poojan Night on the 19th October 2017.

I have mentioned the step-by-step method for a proper Laxmi Pooja this year at your home and office and working establishment.

Lakshmi Puja Muhurta = 19:16 to 20:13
Duration = 0 Hours 56 Mins
Pradosh Kaal = 17:42 to 20:13
Vrishabha Kaal = 19:16 to 21:15
Amavasya Tithi Begins = 00:13 on 19/Oct/2017
Amavasya Tithi Ends = 00:41 on 20/Oct/2017
The best time for Lakshmi Puja is during Pradosh Kaal when Sthir Lagna prevails. Sthir means fixed i.e. not moveable. If Lakshmi Puja is done during Sthir Lagna, Lakshmiji will stay in your home; hence this time is the best for Lakshmi Pujan. Vrishabha Lagna is considered as Sthir and mostly overlaps with Pradosh Kaal during Diwali festivity.

First identify a West or South-West facing wall or corner where you will perform the Pooja. The first important step for the Goddess Lakshmi Puja is cleanliness. According to Puranas, Goddess Lakshmi likes neatness and visits the houses which are kept clean. That is why the broom is also worshipped on the day with offerings of turmeric and vermilion.

Clean the house/office and the place where Lakshmi puja is performed. Rangoli designs can be drawn to welcome Goddess Lakshmi Devi. Take a chauki(raised wooden platform) and place 02 cloth over it – one white and one red. The white cloth will represent Ganeshji and Navagraha Poojan, whereas the Red Cloth will represent Lakshmiji.

Now place a whole coconut, unshelled with a swastik made of kumkum with a colorful roli thread tied around it on the mouth of the Kalash. Also place mango leaves under the coconut. Keep another cloth and put a handfulof rice grains on it and place the Kalash on the rice.

On the chauki divide the left side with white cloth and put the red cloth on the right side. Seat Laxmi Ganeshji photo on the right side and make a navagraha representation with mauli tied around supari and placed on 9 mounds of rice on the white cloth.
