The word Lak­shmi has its ori­gin in the San­skrit word Lak­shya, mean­ing goal. Lak­shmi is the God­dess of wealth, pros­per­ity, and for­tune. She also of­fers ma­te­rial and spir­i­tual growth. She pro­tects her devo­tees from mis­ery and money-cri­sis. She is the con­sort of Lord Vishnu and is also called as Shri. As per Vishnu Pu­rana, Lak­shmi is the daugh­ter of Bhrigu and Khyaati. She left Swarga and made ksheera Sa­gara her home due to the curse of sage Dur­vasa. She is the sis­ter of the guru Sukracharya as well as planet Chan­dra. When the Devas and Daanavaas churned the ksheera Sa­gara (ocean of milk), Chan­dra and Lak­shmi were born out of the sea. Lak­shmi is the in­car­na­tion of Lord Vishnu’s spir­i­tual fem­i­nine en­ergy, in the form of Adi Param Prakriti, which em­pow­ers and takes the devo­tees to the higher el­e­va­tion of spir­i­tu­al­ity. She is the god­dess of beauty. She has a golden com­plex­ion with wavy and long hair, rep­re­sented as con­fer­ring hap­pi­ness. Her red or golden cos­tume, or­na­ments full of gold with a golden ruby-stud­ded crown sym­bol­ises ful­fil­ment. Her right hand is in Ab­hay mu­dra and Gyan mu­dra de­pict­ing power and in­tel­li­gence. She holds a pot of gold and paddy sheaf in her left hand which de­picts her as a be­stower of wealth and pros­per­ity.
