''Lakshmi'' is derived from the Sanskrit word Laksme, meaning "goal. Lakshmi, therefore, represents the goal of life, which includes worldly as well as spiritual prosperity.

Lakshmi,लक्ष्मी, is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), light, wisdom, fortune, fertility, generosity and courage; and the embodiment of beauty, grace and charm. She brings good luck to her devotees. She is believed to protect her devotees from all kinds of misery and money-related sorrows.

"In Her images and pictures, Lakshmi is depicted in a female form with four arms and four hands. She wears red clothes with a golden lining and is standing on a lotus. She has golden coins and lotuses in her hands. Two elephants (some pictures show four) are shown next to the Goddess. This symbolism conveys the following spiritual theme:

The four arms represent the four directions in space and thus symbolize omnipresence and omnipotence of the Goddess. The red color syinbolizes activity. The golden lining (embroidery) on Her red dress denotes prosperity. The idea conveyed here is that the Goddess is always busy distributing wealth and prosperity to the devotees. The lotus seat, which Lakshmi is standing upon, signifies that while living in this world, one should enjoy its wealth, but not become obsessed with it. Such a living is analogous to a lotus that grows in water but is not wetted by water.

The four hands represent the four ends of human life: dharma (righteousness), kama (genuine desires), artha (wealth), and moksha (liberation from birth and death). The front hands represent the activity in the physical world and the back hands indicate the spiritual activities that lead to spiritual perfection.

Since the right side of the body symbolizes activity, a lotus in the back right hand conveys the idea that one must perform all duties in the world in accordance with dharma. This leads to moksha (liberation), which is symbolized by a lotus in the back left hand of Lakshmi. The golden coins falling on the ground from the front left hand of Lakshmi illustrate that She provides wealth and prosperity to Her devotees. Her front right hand is shown bestowing blessings upon the devotees.
Rita's Lakshmi Altar Shrine has been designed to be hung in your home to draw in the powers of Lakshmi. It has been adorned with hoodoo juju, charms, seeds and Rita Bee manifestation fabric. On the back of each piece is a mantra to Lakshmi, I felt like keeping the prayer on the back would help keep the energy of the altar piece high. It has even been blessed, so don't be surprised if it smells good too! It's perfect for those who may have run out of space on their altar for more "items" or may just want to add a beautiful piece of juju artwork to their home. Perfect for worship, ritual work or just to look at!

The importance attached to the presence of Lakshmi in every household makes her an essentially domestic deity. Householders worship Lakshmi for the well being and prosperity of the family. Businessmen and women also regard her equally and offer her daily prayers.

Rita's Lakshmi Altar Shrine is approx 11 inches by 7 inches and as always made when the moon is right. These pictures do not do enough justice for how beautiful this piece is.
