Laxmi Goddess: Why Hindus worship Laxmi?

About Goddess Lakshmi

Goddess Lakshmi is the Vedic deity who holds a principal place in the Hindu Pantheon. She epitomizes wealth, auspiciousness, fortune and prosperity. She is the divine consort of Lord Vishnu. All the auspicious elements of nature are associated with Her. The word ‘Lakshmi’ is a Sanskrit word which is obtained from its fundamental form lakS which means "to perceive or observe". Also, this word forms a synonym to the Sanskrit with lakṣya, which means "aim" or "objective".

Goddess Lakshmi is also addressed as ‘Sri’ which is a sacred name that evokes grace, abundance, opulence, authority and auspiciousness. Just the way the mystic life is associated with word ‘aum’ similarly, the material side of existence is associated with the word ‘shri’. Also, if you have noticed Gods, holy men, Guru and other Holy men, they are often referred to as ‘Shree’. The word Sri or Shree when spoken or written establishes a divine aura of holiness, it is believed that anything that follows this word is said to be imbued with the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi.

Significance of Goddess Lakshmi

It is given in the Shatapatha Brahmana (a Vedic treatise on the preparations for rites and rituals) that the original form of Lakshmi is Sri who is the auspicious energy (consort) of Lord Vishnu. It is from Sri that Gods derive their powers to execute their aims (Lakshya) in the matter of the cosmic maintenance. Therefore the purpose (Lakshya) of human birth is also associated with Sri or Lakshmi. In a deeper sense, one’s ultimate aim in Life is to realize one’s own divinity but only after one has realized that one is abundant and supported; full of talents and creativity; has power and strength; has knowledge and wisdom; has luck and success and has a role play to perform on one’s journey in Life. It is the Divine energy of Goddess Lakshmi that guides you to realize all aspects of your Life that is Moral Duty (Dharma), Desires (Kama), Prosperity (Arth) and Liberation (Moksha) with Sattvic qualities.

Origin of Sri Lakshmi

Goddess Sri Lakshmi finds Her first mentions in the Rig Veda through the hymn called ‘Shri Shukta’. In the Bhagavad Purana, She is described to be born from the Churning of Milk Ocean, the Samudra Manthan.

During the era between 500 and 1500 AD, goddess Lakshmi was renowned as one of the three prime Mother Goddesses the other two being Goddess Saraswati and Goddess Durga. Goddess Lakshmi is often revered as an independent deity and also as Lord Vishnu’s wife.

In North India around the third Century BC, iconography of Goddess Lakshmi in form of sculptures was found in Kausambi. Also, the trend of embossing Goddess Lakshmi figurine on coins started during the reign of the Gupta dynasty around the fourth century AD. With the growing popularity and knowledge, goddess Lakshmi became the most revered and highly worshipped goddess by the kings. She was believed to bless Her worshippers with wealth, abundance, power, sovereignty and riches. During the 10th century AD, a remarkable revolution was witnessed. Separate shrines of Goddess Lakshmi were built with the confines of Lord Vishnu temples.

Goddess Lakshmi- Reason for Her incarnations

Goddess Lakshmi has always been associated with Lord Vishnu. Whenever Maha Vishnu took birth in human form on earth, goddess Lakshmi also took birth in a human form along with Him in order to restore Dharma. When Vishnu incarnated as Vamana, Goddess Lakshmi incarnated as Padma, When Lord Vishnu incarnated as Parasurama, Goddess Lakshmi incarnated as Dharani. Similarly, when Lord Vishnu incarnated as Krishna, goddess Lakshmi was born as Rukmini and when Lord Vishnu incarnated as Rama, goddess Lakshmi incarnated as Sita.

Benefits Maa Lakshmi offers and wealth She rules over

In the Atharva Veda (7:155) it is mentioned that a thousand Lakshmis are born with the birth of a virtuous and auspicious being. Goddess Lakshmi when pleased with the purity and devotion of Her worshippers bestows upon them both material and spiritual prosperity.

Goddess Mahalakshmi is believed to rule over sixteen forms of material wealth namely,

  • Higher Aim,
  • High thought process and Elevated form of Meditation,
  • Bliss,
  • Fame,
  • Knowledge,
  • Happiness,
  • Valour,
  • Intelligence,
  • Good Health,
  • Longevity,
  • Beauty,
  • Courage and Strength,
  • Victory,
  • Obedient and wonderful Offspring’s,
  • Riches, Gold, Gemstones and Other Valuables,
  • Food grains in abundance;
Mantras While Praying to Her:

||Om Shring Shriye Namaha
  Om Shreem Maha Lakshmiyei Namaha||

As mentioned above, all the auspicious elements of nature are associated with Her. The whole gamut of creation runs on Her will. Without goddess Lakshmi nothing on this planet would survive. As, She is the one who blesses with food grains, abundance, air, intellect, offspring’s and much more. Without Her there would be no life on Earth. Hence, this powerful Goddess is revered and honoured by Hindus.

    Dear Madam, I have received items against order no 5273. I cant resist reiterating that the quality of the various pooja items is very very good and at a very low price. The items are so much reasonable that i feel that i should pickup them immediately otherwise they will disappear from your store.

  • Rudraksh is kavach

    So sorry to hear you had accident on bike with cycle but very glad you escaped with slight injuries. Most important is that you are fine although there was some damage to the bike. Rudraksh is like kavach. Wearing of rudraksh helps prevent major things. From previous experience, this sort of thing may occur when there are some malefic influences in person's chart that may result in bigger problem if they were not wearing rudraksh. Usually people sometimes choose rudraksh by instinct to wear, without realizing the mukhi they selected is the most suitable one for their astral chart at a specific close

  • Neetaji epitomizes that ocean of selfless love, compassion and ambrosial nectar of kindness.

    There was a beautiful comment made by someone on this site, about their wonderful experience during the Mahashivratri Puja and how they were looked after and cared for, so lovingly by Neetaji. Two years ago I chanced upon the Rudraksha-Ratna website and met a person who not only became a catalyst to my biggest spiritual evolution, but I also found the Guru and the Divine Mother that I have yearned, for millions of births. It is so truly said that "God could not be present everywhere, all the time, so he created the heart of a Mother". Neetaji epitomizes that ocean of selfless love, compassion close
