To those who are keen for divine Goddess Lakshmi’s bhakti, this auspicious panchaloha statue fulfils their joyous desires of devotion and appreciation. She is the one who propels us to achieve our goals and awards us with wealth and purity; perched on a Kirtimukha lotus throne in her elegant lotus posture with the large eyes closed softly in her dedication and meditation; endowed with the six auspicious and divine gunas (qualities), she is the supreme Shakti of Lord Vishnu.
Lakshmi is also popular as the ‘Lotus Goddess’ because of her intense association with lotus flowers, as shown here also, she holds she holds two lotuses each in her rear hands and also sits on a lotus throne; in Hinduism, lotus is a symbol of purity, generosity and fertility, which she clearly personifies.
