Hello....friends!!!See today Maa Lakshmi has come with me to say all of u a very HAPPY DIWALI. Tomorrow i would have told u the importance of Diwali,but then we thought its better to give all of u the information about Diwali as you all will be busy on this day.

In this post I, i.e Ganesh and Goddess Lakshmi will tell u all the story of Diwali...... Why Diwali is celebrated ? How Diwali  had Started?      Why Lord Ganesh and Goddess Lakshmi both are worshiped on DiwaliWhich all Hindu Gods are worshiped on Diwali 

Why Diwali is celebrated ? How Diwali  had Started? 

This Diwali Story explains the importance of performing Goddess Lakshmi puja on Diwali. So, the story goes like this...........

                The Diwali Lakshmi puja katha tells us  the significance of lightning Diyas (lamp) on Diwali night.

Once Goddess Lakshmi was roaming on earth. That day was the Kartik Amavasya – the no moon day in the Kartik month. Goddess Lakshmi roamed a lot and she forgot that the was night approaching. Because of the darkness dueto  no moon , Goddess Lakshmi lost her way and Goddess Lakshmi decided to stay among the humans on that day.

When Goddess Lakshmi looked around  the placeGoddess Lakshmi found that all the houses were closed and there were no Diya (light) burning any where.

After roaming for a while to other places Goddess Lakshmi came across a home in which a Diya was burning. It was a dilapidated(small and broken down) hut of an old woman.

When Goddess Lakshmi reached that hut, the old woman invited Goddess Lakshmi into her home and said that it is not safe for a maiden to roam around on a dark night.

She offered the little food that was in her home to Goddess Lakshmi and also made bed for her.

Next day morning, when the old woman woke up she found that the maiden(Goddess Lakshmi) had gone.

To her surprise, the old woman found that her dilapidated hut had become a beautiful palace and she found gold and diamond scattered all around. As unknowingly she had served Goddess Lakshmi and she was pleased on her.

From that day people started lighting lamp on the night of Kartik Amavasya with the believe that  Goddess Lakshmi will visit their home on this day.

Why Lord Ganesh and Goddess Lakshmi both are worshiped on Diwali?

                  On the day of Diwali Lord Ganesh is worshiped with Goddess Lakshmi instead of Lord Vishnu. Now the question arises, why Lord Vishnu is not worshiped with Goddess Lakshmi on Diwali and what is the relation between Lakshmi and Ganesh

Read this interesting mythological story and you will come to know Why Lord Ganesh and Goddess Lakshmi both are worshiped on Diwali?

                    Once upon a time, Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakhmi were having conversation in their place and Goddess Lakshmi was praising herself and telling Lord Vishnu that she (Goddess Lakshmiis the most worship worthy in the whole world and by her grace, a person can get all the pleasures of this world and becomes the happiest person. 

              By hearing this self praising of Goddess Laksmi , Lord Vishnu said to Goddess Laksmi  for reducing her ego, and said “If you are having all the qualities and you are so worthy, then why you did not get or feel the joy of motherhood till now and for a lady, the motherhood joy is the most important thing in this universe.” 

    The comment from his husband, Lord Vishnu made Goddess Lakhmi become disheartened and with this pain Goddess Laksmi went to her friend Goddess Parvati
After listing the problem of  Goddess Lakhmi, Parvati asked her, “How can I help you?” 

Then Goddess Lakshmi said, “Dear Parvati,you are having two sons,Kartikeya and Ganesh and if you could give me your one son you will still have one son and I also could get the grace of a motherhood. So, you can help me out from situation.”

      By listing her Goddess Parvati said to Goddess Lakshmi, “I'm having two sons Kartikeya and Ganesh
Kartikeya is having six mouths (Faces) and for this he needs to eat all the time. 
My second son Ganesh is very naughty, if I missed to keep eye on him for a bit, Ganesh will ruin everything. 
And you cannot stay at one place for a long time, now tell me how can you take care of my sons?

By hearing this Goddess Lakshmi said to Goddess Parvati, “I'll keep your sons close to my heart and will shower all  my love on them either Kartikeya or Ganesh. I can take care both of them. All my servants in heaven will serve them day and night. So please give me one of them as my adopted child.”

              Goddess Parvati knew her sons very well, so she gave Lord Ganesh to Goddess Lakhmi as her adopted son. Goddess Lakshmi became very happy and said to Goddess Parvati,-----
“From today onwards I'm giving all my  luxury, prosperity and accomplishments  to my son Ganesh

Riddhi and Siddhi, Lord Brahma’s daughters are like my daughters and both they will be married soon to Lord Ganesh for which I give my word to you. 

I will fulfill all the desires of Ganesh

In all the three loks the personwho shall not worship Lord GaneshI will be miles away from him. 

Whenever my (Goddess Lakshmi ) worship will be performed, Lord Ganesh's worship will be a must. 
Who will not worship Shri Ganesh along with Goddess Lakshmi ,he cannot get Shree or myself. "

           By listening this Goddess Parvati become so much happy and handed over Lord Ganesh to Goddess Lakshmi

So in Deepawali/Diwali Poojan or Goddess Lakshmi Poojan, Lord Ganesh's  Puja is must.
