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.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
