Diwali is considered as the festival of goddess Lakshmi. Lakshmi means wealth and prosperity. This is the festival of wealth and prosperity. On the occasion of Diwali we analyze our financial stand, we make a note of that and review our profit and loss. But this festival is not only limited to the financial analysis, on this occasion we should leave our bad practices and inculcate good practices in finance. Prosperity i.e. Lakshmi is the base and support for "Jeevan-Sadhana " or "self-improvement", we can compare the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi with the mother's milk. We should consider Goddess Lakshmi as our mother and her blessings i.e. wealth and prosperity, should be used to develop our capabilities, and not for comfort and luxury. The importance of Diwali is to accept goddess Lakshmi as our mother and worship her.
