Lakshmi (by Katlyn)

On Lakshmi:

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, beauty, fertility, and auspiciousness. She holds the promise of abundance, fulfillment, and contentment. She is described as restless, whimsical yet maternal, with her arms raised to bless and to grant. For centuries Hindus have invoked her thus:

 

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,
Take away poverty and misfortune
Bring joy, riches, and fulfillment

 

This price is for .5 oz in a gold tin
