On this day, oil lamps are lit all around the house believing that Lakshmi (wealth) goes only to those houses which are clean and where the people are hardworking. She does not visit the places which are unclean/dirty or where the people are lazy.

Hindu Goddess Lakshmi is goddess of Wealth, Prosperity and fortune. Goddess Lakshmi is consort of Lord Vishnu also called as Lord Narayana. Lakshmi Puja is mostly celebrated in eastern part of India on a full moon night after Dussehra and hence it is also called as Kojagiri Purnima. For rest of India, Lakshmi Puja (also called Deepawali or Diwali ) is celebrated on a new Moon night usually in a fortnight after Kojagiri Purnima.
