Diwali 2020 Laxmi Puja Vidhi, Muhurat, Time, Samagri, Mantra: The festival of lights, Diwali, is celebrated with much fanfare as people light up their homes with diyas and other decorations. The auspicious occasion, which falls on the darkest moon night or Amavasya, is celebrated in the month of Karthik, between mid-October and mid-November.

This year, it falls on November 14.

One of the major pujas observed during the festival is Lakshmi Puja wherein devotees offer prayers to Goddess Lakshmi for wealth and prosperity. On the occasion, families decorate their homes with marigold flowers and mango, banana and ashoka leaves. They dress up in new clothes and gorge on sweets and savouries. It is also considered good to place a ‘mangalik kalash’ with unpeeled coconut at both sides of the main entrance to one’s home which is kept open to usher in good luck.
