SRI Mahalakshmiyei


Goddess  Lakshmi presents an example of an ideal spouse before the world. The supreme duty of a woman is described in the service of her husband. Second aspect of the message is for the people who want to get rich, that if they want the wealth, they must develop a devotion for the feet of Narayana, for Lakshmi (Goddess of wealth) is to be found there and no where else.


The better half of Lord Vishnu can never be freakish, because Satoguna is the main virtue of Lord Vishnu. In the proxmity of God whose main virtue is Satoguna, no one can remain freakish. But the material wealth, that is Gold, and silver, have mobility as their main virtue. Thus the rich people who have these wealths may be freakish, but not Lakshmi the beloved of God Vishnu.


Owl is the vehicle of goddess Lakshmi. An owl can't see in the day, Hence, Lakshmi visits the house of those devotees who only worship her, on her vehicle owl. And she visits the home of those devotees who worship Lord Vishnu first and then her, with Vishnu riding his vehicle Garuda.
It also implies that at places where black-money is main, Lakshmi rides an owl. Such a wealth can't be put in the service of nation, people religion etc, or in any worthy task, instead it is squandered in abhorant deeds. Since owl is a bird that sees in the darkness alone, and darkness sumbolizes ignorance. Because of ignorance, money is generated in wrong ways and spent in wrong deeds. Thus owl is a symbol of black money and misdeeds.

Lord Vishnu is Knowledge, Goddess Lakshmi is Understanding,
Lord Vishnu is Righteousness; Goddess Lakshmi is righteous Action,
Lord Vishnu is Sun, Goddess Lakshmi is the Sunlight,
Lord Vishnu is Moon, Goddess Lakshmi is the moon's glowing Radiance,
Lord Vishnu is Space, Goddess Lakshmi is the Sky,
Lord Vishnu is Ocean, Goddess Lakshmi is the Shore,
Lord Vishnu holds the Weapon, Goddess Lakshmi is Might,
Lord Vishnu is Love, Goddess Lakshmi is Passion
Lord Vishnu is pervading, Goddess Lakshmi also pervades all things.
Lord Vishnu  and Lakshmi are all existence, they are nothing but universal Wealth giver couple.

" Karaagre vasathe Lakshmi Karamadhye Saraswathi Karamoolethu Govinda  Prabhathey Karadarshanam. "
Meaning: The front part of the hands (the finger tips) are ascribed to Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth, the middle part (the palm proper) to Goddess Saraswati - the Goddess of learning and the root (the part of hand near the wrist) to Govinda (God). Therefore, every morning, one should have a respectful look at one's hand which symbolizes honest labor.
