Lakshmi Pooja is the third day of Diwali festival. The word “Deepavali or Diwali” means “a row or cluster of lights” or “rows of diyas (clay lamps)”. It is celebrated on the 30th day of Ashvin Masa (September/October) in the Hindu calendar.
Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and prosperity. Wealth is a vital ingredient bestowed upon us for maintenance and progress in our life. It is much more than just having money. It means abundance in knowledge, skills, and talents. Lakshmi is the energy that manifests as the complete spiritual and material well-being of a person.
