Hindus believe that on the full moon night (October 18, 2013) following Dusshera or Durga Puja, Goddess Lakshmi herself visits homes of devotees and replenishes its inhabitants with wealth.

This full moon in eastern India is referred to as the Kojagari Purnima, when Lakshmi is worshiped with gaiety. Housewives draw patterns on the floor with rice paste, called 'alpana' featuring Lakshmi's feet, to welcome the goddess to their homes in the evening.

Don't miss listening to the Hymn of Lakshmi or 'Shri Lakshmi Ji Ki Aarti' -- a popular devotional song sung during the worship of the goddess. Read the beautiful lyrics, and download the MP3 file of this Aarti: Om Jai Lakshmi Mata, Maiya Jai Lakshmi Mata, Tumko Nishdin Sevat, Har Vishnu Vidhata. Also view the photo gallery of Lakshmi paintings, wall hangings, statues and scuptures.

Hi,
I am impressed about the effort that you have put in to nourish so many details of Hinduism.
Thanks for the good work.
I Just needed to point out a thing about Ganesha blog. He is a elephant faced god, not elephant god.
It would be nice you can change it.
thanks

I have heard of a couple differant ways that people believe laxmi brings them wealth. one, is that you have been blessed with obvious wealth. two, you have been blessed with other kinds of wealth, not so obvious to yourself. Is this just a teachers’ way of saying that there are no guarantees in life? Maybe, i watch too much television. To me it also kind of says that even the most powerful prayers can lead to nothing, what a bummer.
