May Godess Lakshmi Ma Bless us All-Prayer for Diwali

As the goddess of both material and spiritual prosperity, Lakshmi delights in the sensual pleasures of the earth realm so she hovers quite near to us. 

   Lakshami . com

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 her blessings. The word ''Lakshmi'' is derived from the Sanskrit word Laksme, meaning "goal." Lakshmi, therefore, represents the goal of life, which includes worldly as well as spiritual prosperity. In Hindu mythology, Goddess Lakshmi, also called Shri, is the divine spouse of Lord Vishnu and provides him with wealth for the maintenance and preservation of the creation.

 

You are auspicious among all auspicious things.
You are holy and fulfill our wants.
You are the one to whom we surrender.
You are the mother having three aspects of nature,
You are the consort of Narayan.
I bow down to you.
from Rituals and Festivals of India, by Tara Bapat, Focus Books, 1991
