Mahalakshmi is the Goddess of wealth, the provider of good fortune, abundance and prosperity. The word Lakshmi comes from the Sanskrit “lakshya” which means aim or purpose. Therefore, Lakshmi has the symbolism of knowing and understanding one’s goal. Mahalakshmi is the consort and active energy of Lord Vishnu, the Supreme Narayan and is endowed with the six divine strengths. When Lord Vishnu chose to incarnate on earth in the avatars of Rama and Krishna, Lakshmi accompanied him as his consort Sita and Rukmini respectively. In popular representation, Mahalakshmi is seated on a lotus and her four hands denote the four goals of human life – dharma, artha, kama and moksha.
In popular literature, Lakshmi personifies wealth, riches, beauty, happiness, grace, charm and splendour. According to a Hindu legend, when the universe was being created, Lakshmi sprang up from the foaming ocean that was being churned by gods and demons (Samudra Manthan) alongside other treasures. She carried a lotus in her hand and is therefore called Padma Lakshmi.
According to the Saubhagya Lakshmi Upanishad, Mahalakshmi is the divine giver of boons, the bestower of wealth, has a golden form, and is adorned with a garland of gold. She has a golden sheen and dwells within a lotus symbolising purity.
Mahalakshmi Yantra is a sacred geometry symbolising Goddess Lakshmi and it carries her divine vibrations. Sri Lakshmi Yantra is worshipped by people for attracting prosperity and abundance and for fulfilment of material desires.
