Diwali marks the end of the harvest season in most of India. Farmers give thanks for the bounty of the year gone by, and pray for a good harvest for the year to come.
Traditionally this marked the closing of accounts for businesses dependent on the agrarian cycle, and is the last major celebration before winter.
Lakshmi symbolizes wealth and prosperity, and her blessings are invoked for a good year ahead.
May Goddess Lakshmi bestow you with abundant wealth and prosperity!
May Goddess Lakshmi bless you with so much money that even Rajinikanth can’t count it.
Lakshmi Puja on Diwali:
There are two legends that associate the worship of Lakshmi on this day. According to the first legend, on this day, Lakshmi emerged from Kshira Sagar, the Ocean of Milk, during the great churning of the oceans, Samudra Manthan.
The second legend (more popular in western India) relates to the Vamana avatar of the big three Vishnu, the incarnation he assumed to kill the demon king Bali. On this day, Vishnu came back to his abode the Vaikuntha; so those who worship Lakshmi receive the benefit of her benevolent mood, and are blessed with mental, physical and material well-being.
May Goddess Lakshmi shower you with abundant happiness on this auspicious festival of Diwali!
