According to a verse from the epic Mahabharata, when a pious man with a pure heart offers flowers to the almighty, the deities are pleased and as a result, bestow prosperity upon him.
Yes, flowers play a significant role in almost every religious ritual in Hinduism. Any religious ceremony, be it offering prayers or performing Aarti, is incomplete without flowers. Worshiping Hindu Gods and Goddesses with flower offerings is not only considered auspicious but has its own importance too. Although you can offer any flower to any God/Goddess in general, there do happen to be a favourite colour to offer according to the Puranas.
1. Goddess Lakshmi & Saraswati.
While pink lotus is offered to Goddess Lakshmi, white lotus, on the other hand, is a favourite flower of Goddess Saraswati. Lotus being a rare flower availability is quite the concern. Don’t be disheartened, here is our recommendation of Verre volants inspired by the lotus flower - A long lasting infinity rose arranged with hydrangeas and finished with baby’s breath. Available in a set of 2 & set of 4 which makes it easier for you arrange them on either side of the idol. Check out our Verre Volants collection here!
