Diwali 2023: 10 mistakes to avoid during Diwali's Laxmi Puja

PTC Web Desk: Diwali, the Festival of Lights, holds immense significance in Hindu traditions, marked by fervent celebrations. A pivotal component of Diwali festivities is Laxmi Puja, a devoted ritual to honour the goddess of wealth and prosperity. To ensure a seamless and joyous Laxmi Puja, it is crucial to steer clear of certain pitfalls.

Here are 10 mistakes to avoid during Diwali's Laxmi Puja

Neglecting Cleanliness: Ensure your living space is immaculate and well-lit. A tidy environment is believed to attract positive energy, and illuminating the surroundings adds to the festive ambiance.

Insufficient Preparation: Plan and organise the puja well in advance. This involves arranging essential items such as idols, flowers, lamps, and sweets to facilitate a smooth and meaningful observance.

Delayed Puja Timing: Adhere to the auspicious muhurat (timing) recommended by experts for Laxmi Puja. Punctuality is key to maximising the blessings bestowed during this auspicious occasion.

Lack of Illumination: Diwali is renowned for its luminosity. Ensure your home is adorned with radiant diyas, candles, and vibrant lights to warmly welcome Goddess Laxmi.

Disregarding Traditions: Embrace and uphold traditional rituals and customs associated with Laxmi Puja. This includes the proper way of offering prayers, reciting mantras, and performing aarti.

Impersonal Engagement: Foster a sincere and personal connection during the puja. Recognise it not merely as a ritual, but as an opportunity to deeply connect with the divine.

Excessive Sweet Consumption: While sweets are integral to Diwali, practice moderation to maintain good health amidst the festive indulgence.

Distractions During Puja: Stay focused during the puja ceremony. Minimise distractions such as phone calls or unnecessary conversations to fully immerse yourself in the spiritual experience.

Overlooking Acts of Charity: Diwali encourages generosity. Don't forget to participate in charitable acts and extend your blessings to those in need.

Neglecting Fire Safety: Exercise caution with fire-related decorations such as diyas and candles. Keep them away from flammable materials, and ensure proper extinguishment before leaving the area.
