One of the most integral aspects of Diwali celebrations is performing a traditional Diwali puja that involves distinctive rituals and the worship of pious deities. We will walk you through every stage of the Diwali puja procedure in this blog and introduce you to necessary artefacts like the Vighnaharta Ganesha idol, Lord Rama Statue Goddess Laxmi, and more.

Step 1: Prep Up for Diwali

One of the most beautiful things about Diwali is seeing almost every house get decked up by countless lights. The whole of the nation shines bright on this day. Not only the exterior but also the interior needs to be cleaned properly to welcome the Gods and Goddesses. It is a known fact that when you are cleansing your home, you’re also cleansing out the negativities. And, what could be a better time than Diwali? 

Apart from cleaning, you also need to obtain essential puja supplies and arrange the puja space. Speaking of decor and puja supplies, Artarium is among the best home decor stores in India when it comes to getting an assortment of products. This brand provides a large selection of stunning home decor products that are perfect for adding to the Diwali atmosphere in your house.

Step 2: Positioning the Puja Platform and a Kalash

For setting up the puja platform, spread a red cotton cloth on a table or stool and place a handful of grains in the centre. Then, place the kalash which can be either made of silver or bronze, in the midst of the grains. Fill the Kalash with 75% water and put one betel nut (supari), one marigold flower, a coin, and a handful of rice grains. Then, circle the Kalash with five mango leaves. 

Step 3: Get Home a Vighnaharta Ganesha Idol and Goddess Laxmi

The first god you will worship on Diwali is Lord Ganesha, sometimes called Vighnaharta, the one who is celebrated for breaking the chains. A Ganesha idol is often thought to bring prosperity and ward off evil energies when placed at your home's entryway during Diwali. Place the idol of Goddess Laxmi in the centre and Lod Ganesha on the right side (southwest direction) of the Kalash. Get hold of a tiny thali and create a lotus flower with haldi, place some coins, and position it before the idol. 

Although there are numerous options available in local marketplaces, Artarium’s online platform is best suited for buying the Vighnaharta Ganesha idol. The creative artists of Artarium develop some of the most majestic Ganesha idols that will add a touch of elegance to your home. Not only Ganesha idols but also Goddess Laxmi’s idols are available. 

Step 4: Keep Finance/Accounts Books 

Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha are commemorated for bringing wealth to the house. Therefore, keep your financial and accounts books or related items before the idol. 

Step 5: Put Tilak and Light Diyas

Light the diyas to symbolise the victory of light over darkness on the eve of Diwali. Buy Lord Rama statue and position it in the puja area and the Vighnaharta Ganesha Idol at the front of your house. Present flowers, incense sticks, camphor, and chocolates to initiate the puja. Sing and pray, seeking Lord Ganesha and Lord Rama’s blessings to provide you with a prosperous and happy new year.

Step 6: Perform the Puja

Start by applying tilak to the Kalash and the iota of water. Put some flowers near each of them. Take some rice and flowers in your palms, join your hands together and close your eyes. Put your soul while reciting the Puja mantra. Once done, offer the flowers to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Laxmi. 

Step 7: Offer Water and Garland

In this step, bathe Goddess Laxmi’s idol with water followed by panchamrita (a mixture of five foods used in Hindu worship). Wipe it clean and place it back on the Kalash. Put haldi, kumkum and rice on the idol. Adorn the Goddess’ neck with garland then burn incense sticks. 

Step 8: Trade Sweets and Gifts

It is traditional to exchange presents and candies with friends and family following the puja. Gift-giving on Diwali represents the strengthening of ties between loved ones. Diwali is a time to spread love and joy. Artarium offers distinctive and exquisitely crafted gift products that will enhance the specialness of your Diwali gift-giving experience.

Step 9: Rejoice with Fireworks

Fireworks can indeed be regarded as one of the most grand aspects of Diwali. This delightful affair is carried out by people of every age. The sky comes to life with colourful bursts and most people spend time rejoicing the same. The perfect way to celebrate your Diwali is by cracking fireworks but in a safe and sound manner. It is imperative to follow safety protocols throughout. 

Step 10: Savour a Festive Dinner

Savour delicious Indian food that is created locally on Diwali. Families gather to cook a range of savoury and sweet foods together. Join your loved ones for a filling meal, and don't forget to indulge in traditional desserts, such as barfis, ladoos, and jalebis.
