October 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Kojagori Lakshmi Puja is another Bengali festival that is celebrated in every household. Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth is worshipped just after Durga Puja. Lakshmi is one of the daughters of Durga who symbolizes wealth, peace, and prosperity. On a full moon night, people worship her at their homes and pray for her blessings. All the rites performed during the Lakshmi Puja are followed with the utmost care and the time schedule is also maintained well by the devoted. People, especially women observe the day-long fast and prayers to Goddess Laxmi. Alpana or patterns are drawn on the floor before the goddess with a paste made with rice flour and water is an absolute must. Delicious Bengali Recipes on Lakshmi Puja night are cooked and are then given to Goddess Laxmi as an offering. It is considered that Goddess Lakshmi visits the homes of the devotees and replenishes them with wealth.
