She is the embodiment of all the three attributes of nature – Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.

A dialogue between Lakshmi and Poverty appearing in the Brahamanapurana is citied in chapter15. Chapter 16,17 and relate to the forehead marks (Tilak) and her place in the scriptures, art and craft. Chapter 19 Describes Lakshmi’s prominent place in Mantra, Yantra and Tantra and also the worship procedures and the mantras connected with different yantra meant exclusively to propitiate her.

Preface

Goddess Lakshmi has a universal appeal and is revered and invoked by one and all – rich and poor both – for wealth and prosperity. Being the consort of Lord Vishnu, preserver of the universe, Lakshmi is represented as the power of multiplicity and the goddess of fortune – both an integral part of the the process of preservation.

Lakshmi is worshipped in complete from along with Vishnu but mostly alongwith Ganesa who is the administrator and custodian of the treasure of the goddess. An attempt has been made in this book to give the maximum information about Lakshmi who finds respectful references in Buddhism, Jainism besides the much older Brahaminism.

Human knowledge flourishes in two ways – by discovering facts, and by presenting the discovered facts from a new angle. The former is scientific; the latter philosophical. It is the later that has been adopted in this series on Hindu gods and goddesses. The facts are all based on ancient sacred scriptures. In this Ganesa, Saraswati and Durga.

Virtus and attributes of gods and goddesses are numerous and countless. It is not people for anyone to present them perfectly. However an attempt has been made by giving a few names of Goddess Lakshmi in the appendix and explaining their relation to her virtues. In common talk, it is said that Lakshmi is unsteady, transient, inconsistent, flicking, and restless. This aspects has been explained. Illustrations and sketches have produced to make home the glory and bliss of the goddess in the mind of the reader.

We express our gratitude to Shri S.C. Sethi, Director, Crest Publishing House, New Delhi, for his encouragement and valuable advice from time to time.

Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
