Diwali Muhurat

In any scenario, Lakshmi pooja should be done before the ending of Pradosh Kaal mahurat on 30th of October. According to the experts, the Deepavali poojan should be done in Pradosh Kaal which starts after the sunset on an auspicious day.

It will be better if you start doing all the work as soon as Pradosh Kaal starts as doing Laxmi Poojan at every corner of the house is a time-consuming job. Aarti of Laxmi and Ganesh should be done in Lakshmi Puja Muhurta.
