While worshiping Goddess Laxmi, please keep in mind that basil is not offered in worship. It is believed that Lord Vishnu is dear to Tulsi but Goddess Lakshmi does not like Basil because Tulsi is the wife of Shaligram in the second form of Lord Vishnu. Therefore, do not forget to use basil leaves in worship.
While worshiping Lord Lakshmi, keep in mind that the colour of lamp must be red and place Diya in the right direction. The lamp should not be placed on the left side as it is considered inauspicious. The reason behind this is that Lord Vishnu is similar to Agni and light.

Also on this day, keep in mind that after worshipping Lord Ganesha, one must pray Goddess Laxmi and Lord Vishnu. By following this rule, one gets happiness and peace at home.
