6 Diwali Pooja Essentials

Riya Teotia

Silver Goddess Laxmi Coin

The silver Goddess Laxmi Mantra Coin is more than just a coin. It is a must-have for Diwali pooja as it represents spiritual prosperity and wealth.

Ganesha-Laxmi Idol

Diwali Pooja is incomplete without the idols of Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha. Every Diwali, a new set of idols is brought into the house as a symbol of new beginnings and positivity.


Panchamrit, made of 5 ingredients - milk, honey, ghee, Ganges water and curd is a must-have for Diwali pooja. Without these items, worshipping Goddess Lakshmi is considered incomplete.

Flowers and Incense Stick

Apart from decoration, fresh flowers are a symbol of sensitive, unadulterated love and devotion to the gods. Lighting an incense stick fills the home with fragrance and positivity.

Aarti Diya

Aarti diya is customary in every pooja ceremony. It is lit and waved in front of the idols in a circular motion to show regard, respect and light.

Worship Glass and Spoon

In Hindu religion, any offering paid to the gods is done using a special worshipping glass and spoon. They are a must-have in your Diwali pooja as they lend a graceful look to the mandir (temple) in the house.
