An incomparable sculpture of Maha Lakshmi made from the distinct Swamimalai
Bronze. Maha Lakshmi, also known as Shri, is considered to be the Goddess of
wealth, fortune, prosperity, power, and beauty. Along with Goddess Maha
Parvati and Maha Saraswati, She forms the divine triad called as Tridevi. The
consort of Maha Vishnu, Shri Lakshmi, is the divine energy of the Lord and thus,
assists Him to preserve and maintain the entire material creation. Lord is
considered as ‘purusha’, and Shri is considered as ‘prakriti’, which means Maha
Lakshmi is the internal potency of Lord Vishnu.
This is the shakti (power) of the Goddess, and among the three modes of material nature, She represents the Rajas Guna i.e. mode of passion. Here, the Great Lakshmi sits atop a double-tier upturned Lotus pedestal in padmasana with four arms. The upper hands hold a lotus flower that blooms regardless of the type of water in which it grows, indicating the beauty of pure consciousness, and the lower hands hold the gestures of the protective Abhay Mudra (right hand) and the boon granting Varada Mudra (left hand). The huge and beautifully engraved crown on Her head justifies Her exalted personality, who provides knowledge of self-realization to the conditioned souls and blesses them with the true wealth i.e. spiritual wealth, and liberates them from illusion. This unmatched sculpture brings about an enlivening transcendental experience of the mercy of Goddess Lakshmi within our hearts.
