If you couldn’t perform Sharda Pujan on Diwali day then this is the best day to perform the pujan of the new books and ledgers. On this day, people are known to meet one another to renew lost ties and distribute sweets amongst themselves to add sweetness in their relationships.
‘Labh’ literally means benefit and this is the day to seek all kinds of material benefits like - a good job, money, good in-laws, good health etc.
The scriptures suggest that before we ask for these material possessions, we should thank God for our life because a human birth by far is the biggest gift from God to us.
The scriptures define Labh as:
Laabhasteshaam jayasteshaam kutasteshaam paraajayaha,
Yeshaam indeevarashyaam hrudayastho janaardanaha.
This mantra reinforces the fact that a person who resides the reflection of Goddess Lakshmi and God Vishnu in his/her heart is truly blessed and victorious in every sense.
This festival official marks an end to the Diwali festivities by reaffirming the ideology of inner enlightenment by eradicating bad habits, doshas, and all kinds of bad addictions.
