Laxmi Puja is the Aaradhana of Goddess Maha Laxmi. Devi Laxmi gets her name from the Sanskrit word Lakshya which means ‘goal’. She is the Goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity, on a material as well as a spiritual level. She is the consort of Lord Vishnu and one of the three Tridevis along with Devi Saraswati and Devi Gauri. She is also referred to as Adi Parashakti or Param Prakruti.
Laxmi Maata is an embodiment of power and intelligence as she holds the abhay mudra and gyaan mudra in her right hands. Her left hands hold a pot of wealth depicting what she can bestow upon a person. Hence, her four hands signify dharma, kaama, artha and moksha. One can see her radiate with a beautiful golden complexion in all her depictions. Being the Goddess of wealth, she adorns gold ornaments and is draped in a regal red saree. She is always accompanied by an elephant on each side, spraying water, which denotes purity, wisdom and a force of spiritual happiness.
Laxmi is commonly worshipped on the Amavasya night on Diwali. Another common Laxmi Puja is known as the Ashta Laxmi Puja. This Puja refers to praying to the eight divine forms of Devi Laxmi. Apart from this, Maha Laxmi is also worshipped during Navratri on the 4th, 5th and 6th Day which are dedicated to her. The prayers are meant to invoke Laxmi Maata’s blessings so as to heal people from financial troubles and/or bless them with the right and ethical knowledge.
Any Laxmi Puja which is done with complete devotion blesses the believer with material and spiritual riches, removes obstacles and provides fulfillment in the different areas in life. Praying to each of the Ashta Laxmi provides specific benefits or reliefs like -
Thus, performing a Laxmi Puja helps protect a true devotee from failures, poverty, hunger, debts, loss of wealth and financial crunches and difficulties.
The most auspicious time to begin any Puja is Abhijit Muhurat during the day, which falls just 20 minutes before the midday. The midday is arrived at by confirming both the sunrise and sunset timings for a given day.
