Lakshmi (Laxmi) Devi, Hindu Goddess of Wealth

Lakshmi (Laxmi) Devi, Hindu Goddess of Wealth

Goddess Lakshmi is one of many Hindu deities whose significance and meaning can be found in ancient Sanskrit books. But she is mentioned just once in Rigveda an ancient hindu book, and the content suggests that word does not mean goddess of wealth and fortune, rather than it meaning is related to sign or mark of auspicious fortune.

Sage Bhrigu was the father of Goddess Lakshmi and took state safely in the ocean of milk when the Gods were sent in exile. She took a rebirth during Churning of the Ocean.

All Gods fell in love with her beauty, as soon as they saw the beauty of goddess Lakshmi. Lord Shiva claimed Goddess Lakshmi as his future wife, but since Lord Shiva had already taken Moon on his head, Goddess Lakshmi's hand was given to Lord Vishnu , whom she herself preferred by heart. Goddess Lakshmi always reborn as Lord Vishnu's wife every time when he was present in human form on the earth. For example, Goddess Lakshmi born as Sita Maa when Lord Vishnu change in Lord Rama, also she was took birth as Radha and later Rukmini to Lord Krishna .

Devi Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth, good fortune, light and beauty . Being the life partner of Lord Vishnu and his companion, the preserving principle, Goddess Lakshmi also therefore signifies love and grace. She often expresses her devotion and love to Lord Vishnu by massaging his feet when he lies on coils of the snake 'Shesha' or sheshnaag. While Goddess Lakshmi, generally worshipped to achieve success, she is not resided along with anyone who is lazy or desires only wealth which means desires wealth with no efforts.
