Goddes Laxmi

Goddes Laxmi

Laxmi is the goddess of wealth, beauty, and prosperity.

Golden in complexion, the goddess has four hands and sits on a pink lotus. Holding a lotus bud in each of the two upper hands, she extends her blessings with the other lower ones.

Laxmi is derived from the word "lakshya," meaning aim. Her four hands represent the aims of human life. These are dharma or righteousness, kama or desire, arthaor wealth and moksha, which means freedom from the cycle of birth and death.

Laxmi's vehicle is the nocturnal bird, the owl. Two elephants are also shown standing next to the goddess and spraying water.

Laxmi is Vishnu's wife. The goddess is also called Shri, and is often referred to as the female energy of Vishnu. Laxmi and Vishnu's son is Kama, the god of love and desire.
