As much as we love the enticing taste of Mangoes, the king of all fruits is also one of the purest and divine fruits as per Hindu mythology. It is believed that Mangoes symbolize wealth and Goddess Laxmi. This is the reason why offering mango is believed to be sacred, not only the fruit, but also the leaves of the mango tree are used in Hindu rituals. It is a quintessential element of every Hindu puja and without the presence of mango leaves Kalash pooja is impossible. Apart from that, mango leaves are also used to ward off negativity from the house, this is why these leaves are placed on the entry gate of most houses.
