Description The beautiful Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth. She holds two lotus flowers, a symbol of beauty, prosperity and fertility. Two of her hands are in the abhaya mudra showing her devotees that have nothing to fear from the goddess of wealth.  Her breasts are covered giving her a modest appearance. Her lavish head dress, jewelry and leggings are all finely carved fitting for the goddess of wealth. Her hands are soft and comforting each with a lotus carving on the palm.  In front of Lakshmi is an elephant (Gaja) with his trunk raised holding a small oil lamp.  You can add a small amount of oil and a wick to create your own small lamp.
About Lakshmi
"Beautiful goddess seated on a chariot, delighted by songs on lustful elephants, bedecked with lotuses, pearls and gems, lustrous as fire, radiant as gold, resplendent as the sun, calm as the moon, mistress of cows and horses - take away poverty and misfortune bring joy, riches, harvest and children."

Draped in red saree, bedecked with gold ornaments, seated on a lotus, pot in hand, flanked by white elephants, the image of Lakshmi adorns most Hindu homes and business establishments.

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.

Shri is the sacred name of Lakshmi.  Shri is written atop most documents and spoken before addressing a god, teacher holy man or any revered individual.  The word evokes grace, affluence abundance, auspiciousness and authority.  When the word is spoken or written an aura of holiness is established.  Whatever follows is imbued with divine blessing.  Just as the word "Om" is associated with the mystical side of life, Shri is associated with the material side of existence.

Lakshmi represents the beautiful and bountiful aspect of nature.  As Bhoodevi, the earth-goddess, she nurtures life; as Shreedevi, the goddess of fortune, she bestows power, pleasure and prosperity on those who deserve her grace.  To realize her, one must respect the laws of life and appreciate the wonders of existence.
