Goddess Lakshmi is one among the trinity of goddesses. Wedded to Maha Vishnu, Laksmi is the provider of wealth and prosperity. The word Lakshmi has its roots in the sanskrit word "Lakshya" which means 'goal' or 'aim'. She is one of the most common deities worshiped in a Hindu home. The month of October is of special significance for the worship of Lakshmi. Lakshmi pooja is celebrated on Sharad Poornima, also known as Kojagari Poornima. Fridays reserved for the worship of Lakshmi.
Lakshmi is often depicted as a beautiful woman sitting or sometimes, standing on a full-bloomed red lotus. She has a golden complexion and has four hands representing trancedental beauty and omnipotence respectively. In one of her hands, she holds a lotus bud that stands for purity, fertility and beauty.
Lakshmi has four arms to represent the four aims of a human life- Artha (wealth), Kama (desire), Dharma (righteousness) and lastly, Moksha ( death or the liberation from the cycle of birth and death). The gold coins that flow from her hands suggests that her devotees will be blessed with wealth, both physical and spiritual. The red and gold colour of the saree she wears stands for prosperity. A pair of elephants are often potrayed standing on both her side, spraying a stream of water. It is belived that this symbolises the ceaseless devotion of the people who worship her.
