The Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity - Goddess Lakshmi who is believed to be the wife of Lord Vishnu is the most worshiped goddess by the Hindus. It is believed that one who devotedly worships Her is blessed with wealth and prosperity.

Aarti which is offered at the end of the puja is an act of offering burning camphor or lighted diyas / lamps in a circular or oscillatory motion. This way of worshiping is mostly accompanied with songs in praise of the god / goddess along with the rhythmic beats of drums, cymbals, bells and hand clapping. This is one of the important part of Hindu way of worshiping.

Dhanteras / Dhana Triodasi and Deepavali are the two important Hindu festivals when Goddess Lakshmi is worshiped across the country.
