The presence of Goddess Lakshmi in the house ensures that your family stays healthy, happy and peaceful. If you are wondering how to invite Goddess Lakshmi to your home, this Diwali, worry not, as we have some tips for you.

Diwali is the auspicious time when we can please Goddess Lakshmi by offering her special prayers. There are certain things that you can do to make sure the Goddess loves your service when she visits your house this Diwali.


Installing Sri Yantra In Your Pooja Room

Yantras of different kinds are usually used by the Hindu community to make life better. Sri Yantra is one of these. This Sri Yantra can be placed in the puja room of your house. Offering regular prayers to it is a must. If all the required rules are followed properly, then the house is filled with good luck and wealth.


Using A Lotus Seed Rosary

The lotus is one of the things that is considered to be very close to the Goddess's heart. She is often depicted as seated on a Lotus. Lotus is considered as the symbol of wealth and good tidings. You can keep a lotus seed rosary in the puja room and use it to chant the Lakshmi Mantra. Doing so will fill the heart of the devotee with purity, love and kindness.


Have A Moti Shankh In Your Home

Moti Shankh is a conch that has the lustre of pearls. Such conches are rare to find and are considered as objects of immense spiritual power. Having it in the house is said to bring financial gains. It has to be noted that the conch should be kept wrapped in a clean cloth that is red, yellow or white in colour.


Light Ghee Lamps

Goddess Lakshmi is the one that lights the path to a brighter and happier future. Place an image or idol of Goddess Lakshmi in your puja room. Light the lamps of ghee in front of the Goddess every morning and evening. If you have a basil plant, light a ghee lamp before the Tulsi plant too.


Place Sea Shells And Coweries

Place coweries and sea shells in the place of worship in your home. These help in attracting positive energies into your home. It is believed that these are a form of wealth and keeping them in your home is said to invite more wealth into your house.


Using Coconut To Worship Goddess Lakshmi

Coconut is considered a sacred fruit. It is also called Sri Phal. It is offered to all the deities during Puja. Offering coconut to Goddess Lakshmi every day invites goodness and her blessings into the house.
