I have dreamt about offering raw lump sugar to Shreemati Lakshmi-Devi and today I have made the pooja with raw sugar only!
For this very special pooja the following items have been bought by me today:
1) A special plate with hearts and roses (yes, I can't hide the fact, that I am in crazy love with Para Ishvari Lakshmi).
Actually, I have been searching for the plate like this and my main fear was that all the stores will be packed up only with usual boring plates for soups and salads.
So, I was insanely glad to find this plate, which is called "a plate for olives" (as you can see a small fork is also attached to the plate).
Nor Shreemati Lakshmi Devi, neither me eats olives, but this plate is very good for offering sugar, confectionery, fruits and other items.
2) Now the orb for the candles. This orb is of very special pride of mine. It was in the same shop, as the plate. I have seen it and understood, that I must buy it for my Precious Para Ishwari!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This orb will also participate in all the evening poojas this week.
3) Lemon candles (at first I was thinking about red candles, but then decided, that yellow ones would not deconstruct the colour palette of the pooja, as the red ones would do!).
4) Raw lump sugar (in the box behind the plate and on the plate on the subsequent photos).
So, the Pooja looked like this (Krishna will appear on the photos, though He was not invited actually due to His very, very nasty and bad behaviour in the last 3 months - maybe, I will tell about it later).
Krishna on the photos is from my other Pooja Room (I have Other Murtis also, but usually I don't show Them)!
