Laxmi is the wife of the god Vishnu. For Hindus, the goddess Laxmi symbolizes good luck. Laxmi is one of the most well liked goddesses from the Hindu mythology and she is also known as the goddess of wealth and purity.
Most of the people might have queries like, what does Laxmi look like?, if goddess Laxmi and god Vishnu are husband and wife then why do goddess Laxmi and god ganesha are worshipped in Tihar? Why not goddess Laxmi and god Vishnu? As an author I personally had those kinds of doubts.
To answer who is goddess Laxmi and how she looks like, Laxmi is commonly portrayed as a beautiful woman with four arms, standing on a lotus flower. There are usually one or sometimes two elephants behind her, anointing her with water.
She is often depicted sitting beneath Vishnu, massaging his feet. One of the very convincing stories from the Hindu mythology is that of the Churning of the blue Ocean. It is the story of the gods versus the demons and their fight to gain immortality. It also tells of the rebirth of Laxmi.
The fighter god, Indra, was once given the assignment of protecting the earth from the demons. He had protected it successfully for many years, and the goddess Laxmi’s presence had made him sure of success.
One day, a clever sage offered Indra a garland made up of holy flowers. In his arrogance, Indra threw the flowers to the floor. According to Hindu belief, this display of arrogance upset Laxmi, who left the world of the gods and entered into the Blue Ocean.
In the absence of Laxmi, the gods were no longer sanctified with victory as well as luck. The world became darker, people became greedy, and no offerings were made to the gods. The gods began to lose their power and the asuras (demons) took control. Indra asked Vishnu what should be done.
Vishnu told Indra that the gods would need to churn the Blue Ocean to regain Laxmi and her blessings. Vishnu again told them that the Ocean also has numerous treasures which would also help out them. The treasures were consisting of the elixir of life as well as a potion bestowing immortality. These treasures would also facilitate them to make victory over the demons.
The tale of the Churning of the blue Ocean tells of that, how the gods worked with each other to wholly churn the ocean. The gods together churned the blue ocean for almost many years, but it was 1,000 years earlier than anything rose to the surface.
Finally, the treasures began to rise to the surface. Among them, there was a beautiful woman standing on a lotus flower. This was Laxmi, who had returned to the world. With the existence of goddess Laxmi, the gods finally get victory over the demons also the gods chased them away from the world.
This story highlights the good fortune and achievement that Laxmi bestows upon those who work hard and seek for her help sincerely. It also demonstrates that during times of success, one must never become complacent or arrogant, as success has a way of getting away from people.
This story portrays goddess Laxmi as a very kind, extremely helpful as well as gorgeous woman. Laxmi stands on a beautiful lotus flower.
