Here brass, reconstituted turquoise and coral are nicely used to create the Ma Lakshmi Temple brass statue. The panel around the figure is nicely crafted with some beautiful carvings. Lakshmi is the goddess of prosperity and wealth and she is invoked for more wealth. She is given a highly ornate touch. Goddess Lakshmi means Good Luck to Hindus. The term 'Lakshmi' is derived from the Sanskrit word "Laksya", meaning 'aim' or 'goal', and she is the goddess of wealth and prosperity, both material and spiritual. She is the household goddess of most Hindu families, and a favorite of women. Although she is worshiped daily, the festive month of October is Lakshmi's special month. Lakshmi Puja is celebrated on the full moon night of Kojagari Purnima. The goddess is depicted as a beautiful woman of golden complexion, with four hands, sitting or standing on a full-bloomed lotus and holding a lotus bud, which stands for beauty, purity and fertility. The four hands of the goddess represent the four ends of human life: dharma or righteousness, "kama" or desires, "artha" or wealth, and "moksha" or liberation from the cycle of birth and death. Cascades of gold coins are seen flowing from her hands, suggesting that those who worship her gain wealth. She always wears gold embroidered red clothes. Om Hreem Shreem Lakshmibhayo Namah is the most popular mantra for the goddess.
