Diwali Scriptural Aspects
1. Diwali is celebrating during the Amavasya of the Kartik month of the Hindu calendar, and the Mahalaxmi Puja is done during Pradosh Kaal.
If the Pradosh Kaal does not coincide with Amavasya within 2 days, then Diwali is celebrating on the second day. This is the most widely following way to commemorate the divine day.
2. Therefore, On the other hand, there is a contrary belief that if the Pradosh Kaal does not coincide with Amavasya for two days, then it should be the first day to be chosen for the auspicious occasion of Diwali 2020.
3. If Amavasya does not occur, and Chaturdashi is following by Pratipada, then Diwali is celebrating on the day of Chaturdashi itself.
4. The optimum time for Mahalakshmi puja is during Pradosh Kaal, when any of the fixed ascendant out of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, is rising on the eastern horizon.
The Pradosh Kaal prevails for approximately 2 hours and 24 minutes after sunset. If proper rituals are following, the blessings of Goddess Laxmi are bound to be bestowed with all her divine glory.
5. However, Puja can also be performing during the Mahanishita Kaal, which commences 24 minutes prior to midnight and lasts for about the same period post-midnight. This time is dedicating to paying reverence to Maa Kali. Generally, Pandits, Tantriks, Saints, and people who are well aware of the importance of Mahanishita Kaal, utilize this time to offer their devotion to Maa Kali
Diwali Puja Rituals
1. Clean the house and sprinkle the Holy Ganga Jal for the essence of purity before Laxmi Puja. Adorn the house with candles, clay-lamps, and Rangoli.
2. Therefore, Create a puja altar. Spread a red cloth over it and place the idols of Maa Laxmi and Lord Ganesha on it. A picture of both can also be using for the same purpose. Place a Kalash filled with water near the altar.
