All above Puja(s) are done with full rituals. As full Diwali Puja might take hours to finish and available Lakshmi Puja Muhurat might be too short to perform all Puja(s), Diwali Puja can begin before Lakshmi Puja Muhurat so that Lakshmi Puja time coincides with the available Muhurat time. The remaining Puja can continue after Lakshmi Puja beyond the Muhurat time.
It should be taken care that the Deepak lit during Diwali Puja continues to light throughout the night. After Puja it is suggested to read Shri-Sukta, Lakshmi-Sukta and other Stutis of Shri Lakshmi. If possible a full-night vigil dedicated for Shri Lakshmi Stuti is also recommended.
