Sri Mahalakshmi Jayanthi

Sunday March 28th 2021

Supreme Lord is inseparable from the Sri Maha Lakshmi. She chooses to manifest herself in the divine Srivatsa (curl on Lord’s Chest), or in a single physical form (Sri Mahalakshmi or Padmavathi or Sita or Rukhmini etc) or as Bhu Devi (Andal) and Sri Devi in two forms or as Sri Devi / Bhu Devi / NiLa Devi (triple form) or even Ashta Lakshmi’s (eight forms).

Divine Mother is intimately aware of the difficulties her children (we) face. She tries to help us with showering us with her ever enriching grace. Lakshmi is thus goddess of the means to achieving all four aims of human life namely dharma, artha, kāma and Moksha. Infact more than being a boon giver of both prosperity and happiness, she is the recommender of Moksha, to souls.
