A Diwali pooja is worship to the Deities of the Hindu Religion in the form of prayer, offerings and sacrifices. The day of Diwali is important since it signifies the worship and praise of devotees to the various deities; but most importantly, it is a day of praise to Goddess Lakshmi and by extension the divine mother of the entire universe and the earthly (physical) mother. Most devout Hindus perform the Dipavali Pooja in a fixed, ritualistic pattern, by celebrating in praise and offerings to Lord Ganesh, Lord Shiva, The Nine Planets, Kalsa (representing the Universe) and Mother Lakshmi.
Divali is referred to as the festival of lights. During this festival, Poojas are offered to Lakshmi, who is the Goddess of Wealth. She is asked to bless the household with wealth and bring prosperity in all endeavours for the coming year. In this context, the Lakshmi pooja is the most important ritual performed during Dipawali.According to the belief, Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth & prosperity and Lakshmi Pooja on Diwali day is considered the best way of pleasing her. Lakshmi Pooja falls on the dark night of Amavasya. On this particular day sun enters its second course and passesby Libra, which is represented by the sign of balance. Thatís why, the design of Libra has been suggested to be the sign for the balancing of the account books.
