Little Monk’s Lakshmi: Tales of Wisdom (Unique Vocabulary Enhancer)
Description
From the Jacket

Lakshmi the goddess of wealth and prosperity and Lord Vishnu’s consort is a versatile goddess who functions at two levels. She is a source of strength and inspiration for Lord Vishnu and helps him whenever he is called upon to save the world from evil. And at another level she showers blessings on all her devotees who worship her with love and devotion and turns her back on all those who are immoral and deceitful. The stories in this book explore her multi faceted persona centred around both these roles.

About the Author

Gauri Kelkar is a freelance writer and editor whose area of interest now extends into the vast and varied mythological world of gods and goddesses.

A first timer in the world of children’s writing where imagination rules the journey from writing content for adults to writing tales for children has been fraught with literary challenge one that she has enjoyed thoroughly.

Sandhya Sethumadhavan is an illustrator and food blogger based out of Bengaluru. Her life revolves around the magical feeling that comes out of bringing characters of a story alive. She loves drawing and painting to the extent of incorporating her painting skills even into the food she makes! Try her painted cupcakes for a sampler!.

Preface

Lakshmi the goddess of wealth and prosperity was one of the jewels to emerge out of the vast worldly ocean or the mahasagar during amrit manthan. As lord Vishnu’s wife she is considered to be the source of his supreme power and strength and is also his constant companion in his different avatars on earth to destroy evil.

Goddess Lakshmi is usually shown seated or standing on a lotus throne or riding an owl. A symbol of grace beauty morality and wealth both wordly riches and spiritual treasures she showers her devotees with all round happiness and prosperity. While they hold a lotus and gold coins her four hands represent the following dharma or moral path kama or desires artha or wealth and moksha or liberation from birth and death.

Lakshmi is worshipped regularly and during the festival of Diwali she is worshipped and prayed to on a grand scale on an occasion known as Lakshmipujan.
