Diwali is a festival of celebrating the blessings bestowed on us by Goddess Lakshmi and Diwali Puja is a way of commemorating the Goddess. Well Diwali is also celebrated for many other mythological reasons like the coming of Lord Ram to Ayodhya along with Sita and Lakshman. Whatever may be the reason for celebrating Diwali but the Diwali Puja is regarded to be a perfect way of thanking the Gods especially Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha for all the peace, prosperity and blessings showered by them on us and the mention of the Diwali puja can be found in the history of Diwali also.

The general things required for Diwali Puja are uncooked rice, paan leaves, kumkum, sweets, camphor, dry fruits and idols of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha. The Puja is performed in the evening when hundreds of diyas are lighted to illuminate the evening. The diwali puja is then followed by presenting each other with ideal Diwali gifts, offering delicious Diwali sweets to the guests, presenting beautiful Diwali cards to the loved ones and greeting each other with nicest Diwali greetings. The process of Diwali Puja is further divided into different pujas in the honor of different Gods like Ganesh Puja, Lakshmi Puja, Kali Puja and Diwali Aarti. 

Recognizing the importance of Diwali Puja amidst the celebrations of Diwali we have come up with a proper section of Diwali Puja under which we have discussed and have given information regarding the different pujas to be performed at the time of Diwali.
