A notable finding from Bharhut, an ancient Buddhist site is a medallion with a goddess standing on a lotus sprouting out of an earthen pot, while elephants sprinkle water on her. This piece has been identified as Gaja Lakshmi because of the presence of distinguishable features such as lotuses, elephants, water, earthen pots. All these symbolize fertility, a trait closely associated with Sri or Lakshmi, a goddess worshipped by major Indian cults for her ability to grant the boon of prosperity.

Here is a handcrafted wall hanging, consisting of the earliest known, conventional features of Sri yet due to its definite finish, it appears avant-garde. Sri-Lakshmi sits in padmasana or the lotus pose, holding lotus buds, sitting on a gigantic, fully bloomed lotus, in a body of water, which probably alludes to her abode, the Ksheer Sagar or the Ocean of Milk. Elephants flanking her are considered the embodiment of rain-filled clouds in texts, while Lakshmi herself is considered the personification of Earth. Be it the closed lotus buds and the open lotus flower representing different stages of evolution or the cloud and earth reference, every element brings Sri-Lakshmi’s prowess when it comes to nurturing life forces. The golden, brown, and silver hues in brass successfully call attention to these marvelous components.

While Lakshmi in temples usually stands alongside her husband, Lord Vishnu, or in the trinity with Ganesh and Saraswati, pieces like this remind us of the independent spheres that mother goddesses hold and the meaning of the faith associated with them.

Unveiling the Divine: Exploring the Symbolism and Significance of Lakshmi

Lakshmi Devi is one of the principal Goddesses in Hinduism. In the Vaishnava tradition, especially the Sri Vaishnava Sampradaya, Vishnu and Lakshmi are considered the Supreme or Absolute Truth. Mother Lakshmi is known as the Goddess of fortune who blesses the living entities in the material world with material wealth and prosperity. Our Vedic scriptures mention that Lakshmi Ji is the eternal consort of Lord Vishnu who is the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He maintains and controls everything in the material and spiritual world. Goddess Lakshmi is also His internal potency and is thus always engaged in the loving devotional service of the Lord in His spiritual abode Vaikuntha, a place where there is no misery.

The transcendental form of Mother Lakshmi is extremely beautiful. She is the emblem of beauty and mercy. She sees every individual soul as her own child and whoever approaches her with faith and devotion, certainly gets the mercy of Lakshmi Devi. She is often depicted wearing a red saree and holding different items in her four arms. She holds a lotus flower in each of her two upper arms. With one of her lower hands, she holds a pot full of gold coins (representing wealth) while the other hand stays in a mudra that signifies charity.

Can we keep a Lakshmi statue at home?

As stated earlier, Lakshmi Ji bestows good fortune upon her devotees and takes care of them. She is full of compassion and therefore accepts anyone who comes to her even with ulterior motives. However, she not only gives material wealth to her devotees but those who approach her to know the real goal of human life or to know about the Absolute Truth, she blesses them with spiritual wealth (wisdom and mercy) by which they can come to a higher platform and consciousness. Thus, it is only by the mercy of Goddess Lakshmi that a living entity starts its spiritual journey toward Lord Vishnu.

If you want to attract this special mercy, you can keep the deity of Goddess Lakshmi at your home and worship her every day with an attitude of surrender. By doing so, you will develop a personal relationship with her and you will be able to experience transcendental happiness.

Which Lakshmi idol is good for home?

Lakshmi Devi expands herself into eight major forms (Ashta Lakshmi) that are Dhana Lakshmi, Dhanya Lakshmi, Gaja Lakshmi, Sanatana Lakshmi, Dhairya Lakshmi, Vijaya Lakshmi, Vidya Lakshmi, and Aishwarya Lakshmi. You can keep any of the forms of Lakshmi in your home to bring material and spiritual auspiciousness. However, if you want her ultimate mercy, you may keep the deity of Goddess Lakshmi along with her master, Lord Vishnu.

Which material is good for Lakshmi idol?

The idol or deity of Goddess Lakshmi comes in various materials such as brass, wood, marble, copper, bronze, etc. If you are planning to keep a deity of Lakshmi Devi at your home, the best material would be either brass or marble. Brass is known for its exquisite appearance resembling gold and is also a strong material. Marble is preferred by most people because it lasts longer than any other material.
