Diwali Lakshmi Puja Muhurat 2018

On Diwali, perform Lakshmi Puja during Pradosh Kaal which begins after sunset and ends approximately for 2 hours and 24 minutes.

Some people propose Mahanishita Kaal also to perform Lakshmi Puja.

But the Mahanishita Kaal Puja is better suitable for Tantrik community and practicing Pandits.

For common people it is better to perform Laxmi Puja in Pradosh Kaal Muhurat.

Here it is advised not to perform Lakshmi Puja during Choghadiya Muhurat as these Muhurtas are only for travelling.

The best time for Lakshmi Puja is Pradosh Kaal as Sthir Lagna prevails. Sthir means permanent i.e. not moveable.

Lakshmi Puja if done during Sthir Lagna, Lakshmiji will stay (Sthir) in your house; hence the best for Lakshmi Pujan is Sthir Lagna.

Vrishabha Lagna is also considered as Sthir and mostly overlaps with Pradosh Kaal during Diwali festival.

Gujarati businessmen carry out Chopda Pujan during Diwali Puja.

In Chopda Puja new account books are initiated before Goddess Maha – Lakshmi to seek her blessing for the next financial year.

Diwali Puja is also known as Deepavali Puja and Lakshmi-Ganesh Pujan.
