Book 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.
