Kuber Puja is undertaken to please Lord Kuber - the God of wealth. He is also known as Dhanapati, Iccha-vasu, Nararaja, Yaksha Raja and Ratna Garbha. In Hindu mythology, he is also the King of Yakshas, Governor of the North direction and the guardian of the Lokpala. He is worshipped along with Goddess Lakshmi - the Goddess of Wealth, on the festival of Diwali. By performing the Kuber Puja, devotees are blessed with richness and success in new ventures.
Goddess Lakshmi is the creator of wealth and Lord Kuber is the guardian and distributor. Hence, the two are generally worshipped together. This Puja is performed by people who want to get rid of their money problems and acquire more wealth. This can also be done before starting a new business as well as to gain material success.
The belief in Lord Kuber showering prosperity was strengthened by the story revolving around the Venkateshwara temple at Tirupati. According to the story, Vishnu took money from Kuber for his marriage ceremony with Goddess Lakshmi. This loan, Lord Vishnu will have to keep paying till the end of time. Devotees go to the temple and donate money so that Lord Vishnu’s loan is cleared. This belief has led it to become one of the richest temples in the country. It is an unconventional way to show how prosperity is linked to Lord Kuber.
Every human wants to prosper and will strive to achieve it. Lord Kuber is known to shower wealth upon those who worship him sincerely. The benefits of performing a Kubera Pooja are believed to be:
Lord Kuber was not always the god of wealth. According to one story he went to pay respect to Lord Shiva, and upon laying eyes on Goddess Parvati he was awestruck. As a result, one of his eye shut. Parvati mistook it for a wink and burst that eye. Upon hearing that it was a genuine mistake his eye was granted back to him. Lord Shiva then rewarded him and made him the guardian of the north direction. And Goddess Parvati made him the distributor of wealth.
It is specially performed during the festival of Diwali. After the Laxmi Puja that takes place during Diwali, Lord Kuber is worshipped. At other times, the best days to perform this Puja are Tuesdays and Fridays.
It is a Pitambar Puja; this means everything must be yellow - right from the devotee’s clothes to the Puja items. The Kuber Puja process is as follows:
This is a general method of performing the Puja and might be practised slightly differently in different places.
The best time to do this Puja is somewhere between the 15th of October to the 15th of November – during the time of Diwali. Kuber Puja on Dhanteras is known to bring lots of wealth in the family.
