Significance of Labh Panchami
It is the final festival of the Deepawali festival and a day when the shops and businesses that were closed on account of Diwali Celebrations are reopened. It is also considered to be an auspicious day to initiate new ventures and start new businesses. Devotees also offer prayers to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi and open their books of account on the auspicious day of Labh Panchami. You too can worship Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi with Lakshmi Ganesha Yantra to bring wisdom and prosperity to your life.
Jains celebrate Pancham or Panchami by worshipping their books and praying for more knowledge with different offerings, sweets, and fruits. Sharada Pujan or Saraswati Puja is also performed by many who failed to do so on the day of Diwali.
The scriptures define 'Labh' as:
Laabhasteshaam Jayasteshaam Kutasteshaam Paraajayaha,
Yeshaam Indeevarashyaam Hrudayastho Janaardanaha.
‘He is the true beneficiary and the truly victorious, who has installed the consort of Lakshmi, God, in his heart’.
In the days from Diwali to Labh Pancham, it is a tradition to visit friends and relatives and to renew good relations amongst them all. Sweets and other gifts are exchanged symbolizing the sweetening of relationships with each other.
