Devi Lakshmi in her powerful Chaturbhuja or four-armed form,
with her primary hands in the Abhaya (fearlessness) and Varada (bestowing
boons) mudra to sustain her devotees and blooming lotuses in her secondary
hands representing the beginning of life and blossoming of inner consciousness,
this brass Sri Lakshmi statue is a divine representation of the great mother
goddess, as the progenitor and nurturer of Srishti (creation). Devi Lakshmi is
wearing a royal crown, jewelry, and a traditional sari, embellished with
incised lines to mark the fabric folds. She is enthroned on a fully blossomed
lotus whose petals are visible underneath her regal posture, known as
Maharajalilasana. Though a small metal icon, Devi’s facial features are
revealed in the statue by the use of measured incised lines, which combine to
give the goddess a pleasant and divine expression.
In a Hindu household, having a goddess Lakshmi statue in the Pooja-ghar (place of worship) is a way to bring auspicious energies into the home. Using ritually prescribed methods, this small goddess Lakshmi statue can be evoked with aavahana (calling the goddess to the home), aasana (providing her a place to reside), pada-prakshalana (washing the feet), snana (bathing the icon), vastra (offering fineries), kumkum tilak (auspicious mark on the forehead and feet), dhoop (incense), deepa (lamp), and naivadiyam (food). In this manner, Maa Lakshmi is established in a home where her presence ensures a flow of propitiousness, fertility, abundance, happiness, and positivity. A durable and divine statue, this brass Lakshmi icon allows you to devotedly perform the pooja and invite the great-goddess to stay in your home and heart.
