The Goddess Sri Lakshmi has 8 Forms

As per the scriptures, The Mahabharata, Srilakshmi was born from the stirring of the primeval milky ocean by the gods and demons.
Following the intervention of Brahma and Vishnu, Lakshmi miraculously appeared from this sea of clarified butter clothed all in white and radiating youth and beauty.
For this reason the goddess is sometimes called Ksirabdhitanaya, ‘daughter of the sea of milk’.
Lakshmi immediately gave herself to Vishnu’s protection and for this reason she is said to dwell on Vishnu’s chest giving rise to one of the god’s alternative names, Shrinivas meaning ‘the dwelling place of Sri’.
Sri (Shri) means prosperity, and is another of Lakshmi’s many names.
According to the Harivamsa Lakshmi is the mother of Kama, the god of love and so provides an interesting parallel to the Greek goddess Aphrodite and her son Eros, the former also born from a foaming sea.
Goddess Maha Lakshmi is enchantingly beautiful, and is standing on a lotus holding lotuses one in each of her hands and is called Padma, or Kamala.
A popular song we used to sing during Lakshmi Puja
Eso sonar barani rani go amar, shankha, kamala karey |
Eso ma Lakshmi, boso ma Lakshmi, thako ma Lakshmi gharey ||
Baatey baatey dechho bharey bharey phal, mathey mathey dechho dhan |
Goshtey goshtey Kapila Sushila dudher naditey tulechey baan ||
Amai sada dudhey bhatey rekho go, tumi achala hoia theko go |
Tomari anna, Annapurna, dibo ma tomari korey ||
Come Oh my Golden Queen (Goddess of wealth, Lakshmi), With conch and lotus in your hands. Come, sit and stay in my house, Oh the Goddess of wealth (Lakshmi.) You have blessed fruits in every branch, paddy in the fields, Cows – Kapila, Sushala, in every cow-shed, and tides came in the river of milk. Keep me happy with milk and rice (prosperity) Stay fixed in my residence I will give food in your hands that you gave to me, Oh the Goddess with abundent food.
Each time Vishnu incarnated, she incarnated with him. This depicts her love and devotion towards her husband.
She is also adorned with a lotus garland.
Goddess Lakshmi Devi with red colored saree. This red coloured saree symbolizes the continuous activity and positive energy.
Vishnu represents all that is male and Lakshmi, all that is female.
Sri Lakshmi four hands signify her power to grant the (chatur vidha) four type of purusharthas (ends of human life), dharma (righteousness), artha (wealth), kama (bodily pleasures), moksha (beatitude).
The lotuses in various stages of blooming, represent the worlds and beings in various stages of evolution.
The coconut with the shell, kernel and water connotes that she is the origin of the three levels of creation, the gross, the subtle and the extremely subtle.
In the Vedas (“wisdom books”), the earliest scriptures of the Hindu tradition, Lakshmi is born of the presence of “Sri”, which translates as splendor, glory, majesty, brilliance, and the divine power of auspiciousness.
It is the power of life and vitality, well-being, abundance, and prosperity. In the later Vedic period, the qualities known as sri came to be recognized as manifesting in a form called “lakshmi,” which literally means an imprint, an embodied expression, a manifestation of sri.
No longer abstract, this form transforms into deity and the Vedic songs begin to sing of ‘sri’ and ‘lakshmi’, sometimes together and sometimes separately. Thus, Lakshmi as deity is born.
During the crouching of Thiru Paarkadal, lots of precious things came out from that. And one among them was Sri Lakshmi with brightness.
After coming out from the Paarkadal, she resided on to the thiru Maarbu (Chest) of Sriman Narayanan.
Various Puranams say that Sri Lakshmi originated from Agni, Water, Land etc; but instead of analysing them, let us know about the great Goddess and how does She extends Her thirukKaram towards us.
SriLakshmi is the Goddess of wealth. Although we tend to measure wealth in terms of money but in the spiritual sense, wealth refers to divine knowledge. Lakshmi puja is closely connected with Diwali in Northern India and the business community worships Lakshmi with great pomp and show.
Lakshmi is the sister of Saraswati and Goddess Durga is their mother.
Lakshmi is married to Naryana, another name of Vishnu.
By tradition, bells are not rung during Lakshmi puja in Bengali families although conch is blown.
