Shree Deepawali Poojan Vidhi

I am giving an accurate, simplified version according to sanatan system, on this Deepawali it will give you an opportunity to perform Lakshmi- Ganesh Pooja yourself hassle free without any problems.

First of all you require a small Chowki or Stool or Clean Aasan, Small Ghat (Lota) or Kalash, Deepak, Akshat, Roli, Kumkum, Flowers, then it should be covered by a piece of red cloth. Place Lakshmi ji on the right side of Ganesha. Preferably Idols should be facing North or East. You can keep Idols facing in any direction according to your convenience but “South-West” should be avoided.

In front of Idols on any clean plate or bowel filled with raw rice and make 8 petal Lotus by mixing sandalwood with saffron over it and place one Gold or Silver coin or currency note of your liking denomination & quantity, in absence of Gold or Silver coin any metal coin can be used.

Now take little water in your right hand after enchanting following mantra sprinkle that water on entire Poojan samagri, idol and yourself.

“Om Apavitrah Pavitro va Sarvavasthang gatopi va, yasmaaret pundarikakshh sa bahyabhantarah shuchi.”

Take small quantity of water in your right palm 3 times and drink it each time while enchanting…

Om Keshwaye namah, Om Narayanaye namah, Om Madhavaye namah.

Now Lit the Deepam, one Deepak with Oil and one with Ghee, others may be anything including candles and enchant mantra…

“Bho deep deva-swaroopatwam karm-saakshi havighnah kritam, yavat karm-samaptih ta twah su-sthir bhavah.”

“Om deepavallaye namah.

Twam jyotistwam ravish-chandro vidhyutagnish-ch taarkah.

Sarve-shaam jyotishaam jyotir-deepavallyaye namo namah.”

Then Ring the Pooja Bell and keep enchanting…..

“ Om Aagmarthan tu devanam, gamanaarth tu rakshasaam

Kurve ghantaravam tattra devata-ahvaan-laanchanam,

Apsarpantu ye bhoota, ye bhoota bhoomi-samhsitha.

Ye bhoota vighnah kartarah,
te gachhantu shivaagyan.
Apakramantu bhootani, pishaacha-sarvato disham,

Sarveshaam-virodhenah
brahmakarma samaarabhe”

Now lit Dhoop or Dhoop Batti (Incense stick) and place your right hand over its smoke and enchant….

“Om yen deva Pavittren , aatmanam punate sada,

Te na sahastra dharena,
pavmanya punantu ma,

Praja-pattyam Pavitram,

Te na brahma-vido vayam,

Om satyam, om tasya viturvarenyam bhargo devasya dheemahi, dhiyo yo nah prachodayat. Om aapo jyoti rasomritam brahma bhoo bhuva-suvarh om

Now hold Red flower each for Ganesh and Lakshmi and do the Pran-pratisha in Idols.

“Om Mano jyotirma-jasya brihaspatir-yagyamimum,

tanno-twarishtam yagyam samim dadhatu,

vishve-devas iha mad-yantamoh-sampratishthih.

Om Asye pranah prtishthantu asye-prana ksharantu ch, asye devatva-marchaye mam-heti ch kashchanah.’’

Offer flowers to deity and 11 stems of green grass (Doorva) to Ganesh. And now first Ganesh pooja mantra….

“Om sumukhshchaik dantash ch kapilo-gajkarnah, lambodaro vikato vighna-nasho vinayakh. Dhoomr-ketu ganadhyaksho bhalchandro gajananah, Dwa-shaitani namani yah pathechhu-yadapi, Vidhya-rambhe vivahe ch praveshe nirgame tatha sangrame sankate chaiv vighnstaya jayete, visveshwam madhavam dundi dand-paani ch bhairavam ch vande kashi guhaan bhawani manikarnikaam. Om Gang Ganpatye Namah.”

Now offer some kumkum to Lakshmiji with folded hand and poojan mantra….

“Sura-surendradi-kirit-mauktir-yukttam sada-yattav pad-pankajam,Paravaram patu varam sumangalam namami bhakya-khil-kaam-sidhhye. Bhawani-twam mahalakshmi sarva-kaam-pradayini.

Om Mahalakshmmye namah prarthana poorvak namaskaram samarpayami.”
