Morning Muhurta (Labh, Amrit) = 06:39 – 09:25
Morning Muhurta (Shubh) = 10:48 – 12:10
Afternoon Muhurta (Char, Labh) = 14:56 – 17:42

As you can see I have updated 3 Muhurat here which are “Pradeosh Kaal Muhurat”, “Choghadiya Puja Muhurat” & “Mahanishita Kaal Muhurat” you may be got confused that which is the best shubh muhurat for the common people or in what muhurat you should do pooja of Goddess Lakshmi.

Then the answer is Lakshmi Puja should be done during the “Pradosh Kaal Muhurat” which will starts 18:12 to 20:10 and lasts for 1 Hour 58 Mins.”

Choghadiya Puja Muhurat is helpful only when you are traveling and “Mahanishita Kaal Muhurat” common people should avoid this muhurat as “Tantrika Community” or “Pandit” do Pooja in Mahanishita Kaal Muhurat as they well know about this special time puja vidhi.

Now you know the Diwali Date, Best Shubh muhurat of Laxmi puja now time to move on Diwali Lakshmi Puja Vidhi so here it is.
