Lakshmi Mandala Painting – Invoke Goddess Lakshmi
Goddess Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and prosperity and consort of Hindu God, Vishnu – the god of preservance. Lakshmi was emerged from the ocean of milk – Ksheer Sagar – when it was churned by the Devas (demi-gods) and Asuras (demons) to extract out Amrit – the elixir of life. Lakshmi personifies wealth, riches, and beauty. The Yantra is contained in a Bhupur (a square with 4 T-shaped doors), the doors give access to the Yantra. Inside the Bhupur are eight petals, representing the eight elements of the world – space, air, fire, water, earth, mind, intellect, and ego. The Yantra is green in colour. Green is a nuetral colour. It is a combination of hot yellow and cold blue. This colour has a restful effect on eyes. The six pointed star inside the circle of petals is a combination of upward and downward pointing triangle – the union of male and female energy. This superimposition of two traingles represents a balanced geometry.
Goddess Lakshmi is called Shri, the feminine energy of the Supreme Being. She is the Goddess of wealth and prosperity. Worshipping her would attract good fortune and abundance into one`s life. Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped in all Hindu households. The festive month of October is Lakshmi`s special month. Fridays are considered auspicious to worship the Goddess. Three days of Navratri – 4th,5th, 6th days – are highly meritorious to worship the Goddess and invite the wealth energies into one`s life.
Lakshmi Mandala paintings are a form of Hindu art that depicts the goddess Lakshmi, the embodiment of wealth, prosperity, and good fortune. These paintings are often used as a form of invocation or prayer to invoke the blessings of the goddess and bring prosperity and abundance into one’s life. They may be found in Hindu temples, homes, and businesses as a way to invoke the goddess’s favor and bring good luck. A traditional way of doing this is by performing a puja ceremony in front of the painting, where offerings such as flowers, incense, and fruits are made to the goddess, and prayers are recited.
Recite Sri Sukta and place a statue or image of Lakshmi in the prayer area. She deserves your sincere prayers. Thirty days of Sri Sukta recitation will transform your life. With the holy recitation of its fifteen verses, she mercifully grants all wishes.
Lakshmi Gayathri mantra recitation: Recite the mantra 108 times each day.
Use a rosary or a mala made of lotus seeds to recite the mantra. It goes by the name Kamal Gatta mala. This bead is used in everyday devotion to banish poverty and enjoy material success since it greatly pleases the Goddess.
Use of ghee lamps – Light two ghee lamps each day with kheer, lotus flowers, and coconut as offerings.
Lotus stem wick: Use nine wicks made of lotus stems to light an earthen lamp filled with ghee every Friday. It draws very powerful vibrations of money and bestows all forms of material success.
Place cowries or sea shells in the place of worship to draw overwhelmingly good energy into the home.
Shankh, the conch of Sri Lakshmi
Keep a Dakshinavarti conch shell or a right-handed conch shell in your home for worship. Additionally known as Sri Lakshmi Shankh. The conch blows Lakshmi’s blessings out.
Keeping the conch at home clears the neighborhood of any bad energy. Goddess Lakshmi removes grief and grants intelligence, success, and material freedom through its installation.
The shell needs to be cleaned before being placed on a colored cloth, such as white, yellow, or red. On a lump of clay or silver saucepan, occasionally. During pooja, water is gathered in the conch shell and sprinkled.
This is strongly related to God Kubera and is kept at home to bring wealth and prosperity.
