This festival is the most important festival celebrated in the country, but it has equal importance among the Hindus residing in other parts of the world. The deep meaning behind this festival of light signifies the importance of joy and peace and the victory of light over darkness. The day is celebrated to seek the blessings of Goddess Laxmi, the Goddess of wealth and abundance. Celebrated over a period of five days, the festival is observed on the fifteenth day of the Kartik maas, as per the Hindu Panchang.
Laxmi puja performed on this propitious day is said to have a lot of benefits. As a result, every Hindu household performs this puja with great devotion. Let us take you through a step-by-step guide on how to perform the Puja vidhi associated with this day-
The biggest festival of the Hindus is celebrated over a period of five days. Here are the different festivals that are celebrated with much fanfare during the auspicious Diwali dates and time-
Astrologically, the Diwali dates and time hold a lot of relevance. It is from this day that the new lunar calendar starts, marking the beginning of the harvest season in the country. The planetary positions during this time are so auspicious and favorable that one can easily initiate new projects without a muhurat to gain wealth and prosperity.
Furthermore, during this time, the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction, promoting a period of harmony and abundance in everybody’s life. These celestial bodies are placed in the Libra zodiac sign, in the Swati Nakshatra, which is a feminine constellation. Libra is a sign of balance, and hence, the onset of this festive season balances love, joy, wealth, and health in people’s lives.
Deepavali, which loosely translates to a “row of lights” in Hindi, accurately describes this festival as devotees decorate every corner of their abode with diyas, lights, candles, rangoli, and flowers on this day. It is significant not only because neighborhoods are alight with enchanting decorations and mesmerizing displays of fireworks are a wondrous sight to behold, but because it marks the victory of good over evil. The triumph of knowledge over the darkness of ignorance is the true meaning behind the victory of Lord Rama over the demon king Ravana. The entire country celebrates this day as it is bathed in a glow of colorful lights and diyas, creating an atmosphere of joy and exuberance. Celebrated in the holiest month of the year, this auspicious day is eagerly awaited by not just the Hindus in the country but also by the Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jains, highlighting the spirit of brotherhood that is a significant feature of our country.
The festival of lights is celebrated with a lot of enthusiasm, and the days leading up to the festival are equally awaited by one and all. Here are some of the most prominent rituals that are associated with the celebrations of Lord Rama’s return to Ayodhya-
We are all familiar with the fact that this festival is celebrated to commemorate the return of Lord Rama after his exile of fourteen years to the kingdom of Ayodhya. However, there is another legend pertaining to the rebirth of Goddess Laxmi on this day. The Goddess of fortune, as the story goes, left the divine world and immersed herself into the ocean due to the arrogant behavior of Indra. Without the blessings of the Goddess of prosperity, the world was in disarray, pushing it into darkness. All the Gods desperately prayed to her to come back. After thousands of years, Goddess Laxmi was finally reborn on the petals of a lotus flower. With her rebirth, the world once again received her blessings, and it is for this reason Laxmi puja holds such great relevance on this day.
The festival of Deepavali brings light and abundance into the hearts and souls of every devotee. The spell-binding atmosphere during this five-day festival is eagerly awaited each year as it brings people together, sharing their joys and happiness.
