This year Diwali Falls on Monday, 24th October 2022. Lakshmi Pooja at 06.30 PM evening.

Hindu legend talks about a poor Brahmin who was told by a priest to worship Lakshmi in order to become wealthy. Since people need to be riches and prosperous above all else during the Kaliyuga in which we currently live, it makes more sense to worship the Goddess of Wealth, Lakshmi.

Diwali is also said to fall in the period of the year when her husband, Lord Vishnu, is sleeping, according to mythology. From the 11th lunar ( moon) day of Ashadh (also known as Shayani Ekadashi) through the 11th lunar day of Kartik, Vishnu is at rest (i.e., Prabodhini Ekadashi). Diwali remembers the defeat of the Bali by Lord Vamana, the slaying of other demons (evils spirit) like Narkasur by Lord Krishna, and the entry of Lord Rama into Ayodhya after murdering Ravana. Lakshmi is venerated (respected) because it’s believed that succeeding over evil will bring riches.

About Diwali 

However, some people also think that Lakshmi would be happier if her devotees prayed to Lord Vishnu instead of her. However, Shashtras advises appeasing (someone who tries to bring peace) her.

Hindu mythology holds that because Lakshmi was childless, Ganesha’s mother Parvati gave him up for adoption. Lakshmi declared that since she adored Ganesha, all of her money, success, and accomplishments belonged to him. She added that anyone who doesn’t worship Ganesh with her will never experience prosperity in any of the three worlds (Threelok).

The belief that Ganesh is the most upright god is another justification for why people worship both of them. Without prosperity, what is wealth? Without the knowledge to spend it wisely, what good is money? Without brains, would all the material gains in the world last? Ganesha is therefore revered (regarded as worthy of great honor and respect) in an effort to restore these two energies.
