People celebrate Diwali every year to represent the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, and happiness over hopelessness.

Known as the “festival of lights,” it is widely observed across the country. People perform rituals, decorate their homes with diyas, rangoli, ornaments, and lights, partake along with mouthwatering meals and sweets, and don new traditional clothing on this day.

Additionally, they hold pujas in their houses to ask Lord Ganesha and the goddess of riches, Lakshmi, for guidance in choosing the proper path and strength to face any anxieties.

Shubh Muhurat

This year, the Lakshmi-Ganesh Puja rituals will mark the beginning of Diwali on October 24. The shubh muhurat is between 6:53 and 8:16. However, depending on the region, timelines could vary.

Puja Vidhi for Diwali 2022

Devotees worship Lord Ganesha and Goddess Laksmi to ask for their blessings and present them with treats like modak, halwa, and laddoos on this day.

After the puja, candles, diyas, and firecrackers are lighted as part of the celebration.

Hinduism holds that illuminating diyas wards off evil entities.

Significance:

According to Hindu mythology, Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya on Diwali after killing Ravana and going into exile for 14 years. As part of the festival of lights, people offer prayers to the goddess Lakshmi, lord Ganesh, and Kubera in hopes of receiving good health, money, and prosperity.

Devotees pray for their ancestors in the early hours of the morning, and on Amavasya, they perform Shradh for them. Diwali’s Pradosh Kaal, which starts after sunset and lasts for two hours and twenty-four minutes, is when Lakshmi Puja is conducted (approximately).
