According to Vedic mythology, Adilakshmi is one among the Ashtalakshmis. She is an incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu.

Mother Lakshmi resides with Lord Narayana in the Vaikuntha, the abode of Lord Narayana. She is known as Ramaa, means bringing happiness to the mankind.

She is also known as Indira (who holds lotus or purity in the hands or heart.) Divine Mother’s this form is normally seen serving Sri Narayana. Lord Narayana is omnipresent. Adi Lakshmi or Ram Lakshmi serves Sri Narayana is symbolic of her serving the whole creation.

Though Sri Narayana is attended by innumerable devotees, still she personally loves to serve the Lord. Actually mother Adi Lakshmi and Narayana are not two different entities but one only. Many a place we see her form sitting in the lap of Sri Narayana.

Adilakshmi goddess of happinessAdilakshmi is depicted as residing in Vaikunta, the abode of Vishnu, and serving the Lord. She is called Rama Lakshmi, meaning the Lakshmi who brings happiness to the mankind.

She is also called Indira which means one who holds the lotus or purity in the hands or heart.

In Hinduism, Adi Lakshmi, or Adilakshmi, is one of the manifestations of Goddess Lakshmi. She is the supreme mother goddess and therefore she is also known as Adi Shakti and she existed before everything else.

She is beyond description and understanding. She is the womb that contains all life. Adi Lakshmi is an attempt by the human mind to give a form to the formless and which is popularly referred to as Brahman – the Supreme Being – in Hindu religion.
The concept of Adi Lakshmi tries to solve the puzzle of creation. It is one among the numerous attempts made by ancient seers to get the concept of Brahman to common man through symbolism. Adi Lakshmi is the womb in which birth and death takes place but she remains above it. She is unfathomable and beyond imagination of human mind.

There are numerous references to Adi Lakshmi in the Puranas. It is stated that the three gunas – sattva, rajas and tamas – emerged from her. Sattva (harmony) was represented as Goddess Saraswati, Rajas (Agitation) as Maha Lakshmi and Tamas (inertia) as Maha Kali.

Adi Lakshmi is also part of the eight Lakshmis (Ashtalakshmi).

In Brahmanda Purana there is a further development of the womb concept associated with Adi Lakshmi. It is suggested that three eggs (life symbol) emerged from her.

The first egg gave rise to Vishnu and Ambika, the second to Brahma and Lakshmi and the third to Shiva and Saraswathi.

Adi Lakshmi then gave Ambika in marriage to Shiva, Saraswathi to Brahma and Lakshmi to Vishnu. Creation started with these three couples.

Adi Lakshmi is represented with several arms in some miniature painting. Her form depends on the understanding that the artist has of the concept. Sometimes she is depicted as sitting on a lotus and has four arms. It must be noted here that human mind is trying to give a form to that which is beyond his/her perception.

Dhan Lakshmi, or Dhanalakshmi, is one of the manifestations of Goddess Lakshmi and in this form she symbolizes material wealth.

Although Goddess Lakshmi has numerous forms, other attributes and symbolisms but this is most popular form of Goddess Lakshmi for majority of people in today’s world.

The story of Dhana Lakshmi and the power of material wealth is closely associated with the story of Goddess Padmavati and Lord Balaji.

Legend has it that once Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Vishnu had some quarrel and in anger Goddess Lakshmi left Vaikunta and came and resided on earth as Goddess Padmavati.

Soon Lord Vishnu came in search of her and resided on earth as a forest dweller. Goddess Padmavati was now the daughter of a rich king. Soon Vishnu and Goddess Padmavati met. He wanted to marry her but a poor forest dweller did not have the wealth to make the daughter of a king his wife.
Dhana Lakshami and her online pujaFinally, it is said that Lord Vishnu took loan from Kubera, the treasurer of Gods. Kubera agreed to help under the condition that Lord Vishnu cannot leave the earth without repaying the debt.

The amount that Lord Vishnu borrowed and the interest on it was too high that Vishnu could never return to Vaikunta. Finally, Lord Vishnu had to acknowledge the power of wealth and Dhana Lakshmi blessed him.

Since this incident, Lord Vishnu is also known as Daridra Narayana as he is indebted to Dhana Lakshmi. It is also said that the offerings that devotees make to Lord Balaji is used repay the debt of Kubera.

Symbolically, Dhana Lakshmi teaches the importance of material wealth in modern society. Dhana Lakshmi is only an aspect of Goddess Mahalakshmi.

But unfortunately many people are immersed in this one aspect – making material wealth. This is dangerous as it causes an imbalance. Wealth is like water, it is essential for survival but it can also drown.

In the holy book of Srimad Bhagavata the story of the churning of the ocean by Gods and demons is explained in detail. Author, the Sage Vyasa writes that Lakshmi came out of the ocean during the churning of the ocean (Samudra Manthan).

So she is known as a daughter of the ocean. She came out of the ocean sitting on a full-bloomed lotus and also having lotus flowers in both hands with two elephants by her sides, holding a beautiful vessel filled with milk and pouring it over Sri Lakshmi. Many a time we see Sri Lakshmi standing in the lotus and elephants are pouring nectar over her.

Vidya is education. Education is not mere studies to receive the degrees and diplomas certificates from the educational institutes or universities but it is to make you more human.
Education, which cannot give peace to the soul or cannot give the knowledge of the Self and the inner satisfaction, is not education.


Education, which cannot wipe the tears of others, known or unknown, is not education. Education is the understanding the situation and silence or art of living and leading the life that can make the life, the Life Divine, where the ultimate Goal of the life is the God-Realisation.
Such Education can come only through discrimination and dispassion. One can have abundant amount of money, but if he does not know how to make good use of it, it will work to his disadvantage. If an alcoholic or a drug addict gets a big sum of money, it will only hasten his downward journey to destruction.

Vidya Lakshmi is the understanding and the knowledge to mold the ordinary life into the Divine Life. A life of Service, a life of feeling for a fellow being, a life of charity and generosity, a life of purity, a life for seeking a soul within the soul and a life with an ultimate aim of the realisation of the is the only real education, which can come only with the grace of Vidya Lakshmi.
