Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and fortune, power and beauty. The story goes that she was born out of the ocean of milk while it was churning. She is the wife of Vishnu and his devoted partner throughout eternity representing the best qualities of divine feminine. She and Vishnu represent the Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine.
LAKSHMI AND VISHNU – ETERNALLY IN LOVE AS SACRED PARTNERS
The word ‘Lakshmi’ is derived from the Sanskrit word “Laksya”, meaning ‘goal’. She is the goddess of wealth and prosperity, both material and spiritual. She is worshipped every day in most Asian countries as the Highest Goddess, especially as the highest Mother Goddess who looks after the home and family and provides for everyone. Worship of a mother goddess has been a part of Indian tradition since its earliest times. Lakshmi is one of the mother goddesses and is addressed as “Mata” (mother) instead of just “Devi” (goddess). Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped by those who wish to acquire or to preserve wealth but also for high spiritual attainment and deep devotion to love.
Lakshmi is described as very beautiful and usually is seen sitting on an open eight petaled lotus flower on a lake, and holding lotuses in each of her two hands. Sometimes elephants are also there emptying pitchers of water over her. Her color is variously described as dark, pink, golden yellow or white. While in the company of Vishnu, she is shown with two hands only. When worshipped in a temple, she is seated on a lotus throne with four hands holding Padma, Sankha, Amrtakalasa (pot of ambrosia) and Bilva fruit. Gold coins flowing like waterfalls are seen flowing from her hands, suggesting that those who worship her gain wealth. When shown with eight hands, bow and arrow, mace and discus are added. This is actually the MahaLakshmi, an aspect of Durga, the warrior Mother Goddess. Lakshmi is the active energy (shakti – wealth), Kama (pleasures of the flesh), and Moksha (beatitude).
If Lakshmi is pictured as dark in complexion, it is to show that she is the consort of Vishnu, the dark god. If golden yellow, that shows her as the source of all wealth. If white, she represents the purest form of Prakarti (nature) from which the universe had developed. The pinkish complexion, which is more common, reflects her compassion for creatures, since she is the mother of all. The lotuses, in various stages of blooming, represent the worlds and beings in various stages of evolution.
Fruit is usually offered to Lakshmi during the rituals as it stands for the fruits of our labors, both physical and spiritual. Working hard will not bear fruit though unless we are devotional to the Divine Mother Lakshmi. If the fruit is a coconut with its shell, kernel and water, it means that from her originate the three levels of creation, the gross, the subtle and the extremely subtle. If it is a pomegranate or a citron, it signifies that the various created worlds are under her control and that she transcends them all. If it is a bilva fruit, which is extremely good for health, it stands for Moksha, the highest fruit of spiritual life. Amshtakalasa also signifies the same thing, that she can give us the bliss of immortality.
