Hello!This year’s Diwali is very near and people often wonder how to perform Lakshmi Pooja. The concept is very easy but little bit lengthy. In this post, I will be explaining you the whole process in detail step-wise. So, let’s get started.
Purify Your House Using Gangajal
The first step is to purify your house or the place where you are performing the Pooja with Gangajal (Water Of River Ganga). You have to sprinkle the Jal at the spot of Pooja along with reciting the mantras.
Set Up The Platform Of Pooja
The second and one of the most important step is to set up the whole platform to perform the Pooja. Here, you have to cover a small table with a red-colored cloth. You have also keep a hand full of rice.
Place The Kalash On The Rice
Here, you have to place the Kalash on the part of rice kept on the Pooja platform i.e. in the middle. Fill the Kalash with water (about 70 % – 80 %). You also have to place Marigold flour/genda on the right side of the Kalash and one Betelnut/Supari on the left side of the same. Wash 5 Mango leaves with Gangajal and place them in the Kalash with the arrangement of placing them around the neck of the Kalash. Place a coconut/Nariyal on the top of the Kalash vertically and make the symbol of Swastik on the Klash with Chandan/Roli using ring finger.
Placement Of Goddess Lakshmi
Place the idol of Goddess Lakshmi on the left if the Kalash. Apply the tika of Chandan and Kumkum to the Goddess. Put some coins in front of the Goddess. Keep some more rice grain around the Klash and make a small hill of it.
Placement Of Lord Ganesha
When it comes to any Pooja and we forget Lord Ganesha, this cannot happen. Place the Idol of Lord Ganesha on the right of Kalash. Apply the tika of Chandan and Kumkum to Lord Ganesha too. Now add a lighted diya in front of both idols.
