LAKSHMI emerging from the Churning Sea upon the Lotus Flower

The Goddess LAKSHMI is a much loved and honoured Hindu Goddess who personifies and offers WEALTH in 8 forms: material and spiritual contentment, spiritual wealth, wisdom, material wealth,  family, food, patience and strength, courage, and inner growth. She is a supreme Mother Goddess who nurtures and nourishes all. To realise her is to rejoice in the wonders of life.

HER  STORY:  Lakshmi resided in the world, bringing fortune to all the deities. But she decided to leave the world and enter the Milky Ocean when the world became over-run by evil forces. The God Vishnu instructed the gods to churn the Milk Ocean, to help bring Lakshmi back. Eventually she rose out of the ocean, standing on a lotus flower symbolising  purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration and rebirth. Gold coins fell from her hands. She was wed to the great God Vishnu and together they represent mastery over the Universe, and the Supreme duality of nature. Their  marriage and relationship is the paradigm for rituals and ceremonies for the bride and groom in all Hindu weddings .

Lakshmi presides over Diwali, the festival of light,  which is celebrated by Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and some Buddhists ….I AM WEALTH
