Every year, Kojagara Lakshmi puja is celebrated every year before Diwali. It must be noted that this year, as Sharad Purnima is on October 19th, hence, Kojagara Laxmi Puja will be held on this day.

Interestingly, this day is considered very auspicious to worship Goddess Lakshmi, and it is believed that on this day, Goddess Lakshmi travels on the earth late at night to give her blessings.


In fact, people in different parts of the country celebrate Kojagara Purnima according to their own beliefs and traditions. But one thing is common and that is, people worship Goddess Lakshmi on this date in the middle of the night or Nishithkaal.

Mythologically, it is said that on the night of Sharad Purnima, the moon completes its 16 phases, and on this night, there is a rain of nectar from the sky. Afterward, Goddess Laxmi roams the earth on the night of Kajagara Purnima and blesses her devotees with prosperity, wealth, and happiness.

In fact, according to some religious beliefs, on the night of Kojagara Lakshmi Puja, it is believed that Goddess Laxmi walks on the earth while uttering the word 'Ko Jagrati', which means “who is awake?" By this, she sees who on planet earth is awake at night.

The worship method of Kojagara Lakshmi Puja is quite simple. In literal terms, The idol of Goddess Laxmi (preferably made of brass, silver, copper, or gold) is worshipped by covering it with a cloth on the full moon's day. After worshipping the Goddess Lakshmi in the morning, it is one done again worshipped at night after moonrise. Then, approximately after 9 pm, homemade Kheer in a silver vessel is offered to Goddess Laxmi at night.
