Diwali is undoubtedly one of the most-loved festivals in India.

In addition to this, people also worship Goddess Lakshmi, Lord Ganesha and Kuber on this day. This year the festival will be observed on 14 June 2020. Out of all the rituals of Diwali, Lakshmi Puja is one of the most important ones. It involves worshipping of Goddess Lakshmi as per the rituals and offering Her bhog.

People often try their best to please the deities, especially Goddess Lakshmi as She is believed to be the one who blesses Her devotees with wealth, fortune, prosperity and all kinds of luxuries. We are sure, you too want to worship the Goddess in the best possible ways and please Her. In order to know how you can please Her, scroll down the article to read the below-mentioned tips.

1. One needs to buy new utensils on this day. If not the entire set, then try buying a few utensils for your home.

2. While you offer sweets to Goddess Lakshmi, make sure you offer kheer as well to the deity. This is because the Goddess is fond of kheer and it can be used as one of the items of Her prasad.

3. Light five diyas of ghee in front of the Goddess. If not five diyas, then try lighting a large diya filled with ghee.

4. One should try to offer lotus flowers to the Goddess as She is fond of this flower. The lotus flower, on the other hand, is often depicted as the Asana of Goddess Lakshmi.

5. In order to please Goddess Lakshmi, one should chant 'Shree' 108 times as it is considered quite impactful than chanting any other mantra.

6. If possible, then try giving something to your maid(s), servant(s), employees(s) and worker(s) as a present.

7. It would be better if you use the silver idols of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha for puja during Diwali. Though one should worship the silver idols of the deities throughout the year, worshiping the same during Diwali can bring good luck, fortune, wealth and prosperity to one's life.

8. One must clean his/her house thoroughly as Goddess Lakshmi resides in a clean and tidy place.

9. You should wear new clothes but avoid wearing black clothes, ornaments or shoes as this isn't considered auspicious. Instead, you should wear white, red, golden, orange, green, yellow and other bright colours.

10. If you are capable of buying silver and gold on this day, then please do the same. Keep these metals in front of the Goddess For worshipping Her and seeking blessings.

11. One should perform all the rituals of Diwali with their family members. While doing so, make sure you follow a peaceful approach. Chanting on the top of your voice and clapping your hands, must be avoided.
