That is why, during the Deep Festival, the burning of lamps at the main entrance along with pylon, colorful, decoration and auspicious energies is like invitation and welcome. Yes, keep in mind that there is no holes and cracks in the main entrance and there is no voice in opening and closing. The door with auspicious signs is helpful in inviting Lakshmi.
For Diwali, there is a tradition of cleanliness and typography of the house, because cracks, breakage, seal marks and baddingi walls are unable to absorb the auspicious energy.
During the festival, the atmosphere of the house should be flavored with sun-incense. In other days, there should be no odor in the house. The scriptures say, "Sugandhim Pushtivardhnam."

Before inviting Lakshmi, farewell to old and unsuitable goods is necessary. Freedom from junk is directly related to economic progress.
