Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth
and prosperity, both material and spiritual. The word ''Lakshmi'' is
derived from the Sanskrit word Lakshmi, meaning "goal." Lakshmi,
therefore, represents the goal of life, which includes worldly as well
as spiritual prosperity. In Hindu mythology, Goddess Lakshmi, also
called Shri, is the divine spouse of Lord Vishnu and the Goddess of
wealth and fortune. Lakshmi Narayan Puja is performed for prosperity,
material abundance, and spiritual prosperity. To remove troubles that
prevents us from starting a spiritual path or business.
Dhana Laxmi is worshipped for wealth. Goddess Laxmi, the consort of Lord
Narayana popularly known as Lord Vishnu, is the ruler of eight kinds of
wealth. It is believed that the household where she is not worshipped
ever gets prospered. Wealth and success never ever knocks at the doors
of those households. As she is the beloved of Lord Vishnu, you need to
accord respect to Lord Vishnu otherwise you can't expect Laxmi to stay
at your place.
