Lakhshmi Puja
Thursday October 23 2014
(the date changes according to the year)
*The third day of the Tihar Festival of Lights is called "Laxmi puja". This is the day when Nepalis worship the goddess of wealth. On this day, early in the morning the cow is worshipped. Tika is put on her head and a garland around her neck, and then she feasts with delicious food. A cow also symbolises wealth and she is the most holy animal for Hindus.
