Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth, fortune, power, luxury, beauty, fertility, and auspiciousness. She holds the promise of material fulfillment and contentment. She is described as restless, whimsical yet maternal, with her arms raised to bless and to grant.
Nowadays, Hindus accept Lakshmi as the eternal consort of Vishnu, the preserver of the world. In her long history, however, the goddess has been associated with many other deities. According to Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Puranas, the goddess Lakshmi first lived with the demons before the gods acquired her. She graced asuras such as Hiranayaksha, Hiranakashipu, Prahalad, Virochana and Bali, rakshasas such as Ravana, and yakshas such as Kubera before she adorned the court of Indra, king of devas, the most renowned of Vedic gods. Cities of the asuras (Hiranyapura), yakshas (Alakapuri), rakshasas (Lanka), and nagas (Bhogavati) have all been described as cities of gold, Lakshmi’s mineral manifestation.
Lakshmi is the divine power that transforms dreams into reality. She is Prakriti, the perfect creation: self-sustaining, self-contained nature. She is Maya, the delightful delusion, the dream-like expression of divinity that makes life comprehensible, hence worth living. She is Shakti, energy, boundless, and bountiful.
Goddess Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth, fortune, and prosperity. Goddess Lakshmi is the “eternal” consort and shakti (energy) of God Vishnu. Goddess Lakshmi is also considered as, another aspect of the Supreme Goddess.
