Lakshmi Maa Poem In English narrates the important role played her for we the human-beings.



We have to have ‘Lakshya’

Meaning of Lakshya is ‘aim’

This is derived from ‘Lakshmi’

Lakshmi is the Vedic deity

She epitomizes wealth, auspiciousness

Also fortune and prosperity.


Maa Lakshmi is the Divine consort of Lord Vishnu

All the auspicious elements of nature are associated with her

She was born out of Samudra Manthan

That is the churning of Milk Ocean

A tug of war between Gods and Demons

This churning was for ‘amrit’, ‘nectar’ in the ocean

Goddess Lakshmi rises out of the waves

Seated on a full-blown lotus.


Goddess Lakshmi chooses Vishnu as her master

Thereby she chooses the Gods over demons

But this actually symbolizes the good and the evil within us

They fight to overpower each other

If the man becomes arrogant, undisciplined

Filled with inflated ego and pride

The man is certain to ruin himself

That clearly symbolizes that Lakshmi will leave him or depart from his house.


Maa Lakshmi even forsakes Gods

That’s the reason, why they become weak

And Asuras use to win over them

Later on when the Gods follow the right path

And with the blessings of Lord Vishnu

Then only regain their strength to fight and regain Baikuntha, their capital.


Goddess Lakshmi is equal to all

The divine energy of Goddess Lakshmi guides us all

Guides us to realize all aspects of our life

That may be Moral Duty (Dharma)

That may be Desires (Karma)

That may be Prosperity (Arth)

That may be Liberation (Moksha)

Of course, with Sattvic qualities.


We pray Goddess Lakshmi

October is main festive month for Maa Lakshmi

Maa Lakshmi is known to be the daughter of mother Goddess Durga

She is the wife of Lord Vishnu in all incarnations

She was Sita for Lord Rama (Incarnation of Lord Vishnu)

Maa Lakshmi is worshipped in many households

Lord Ganesha and Goddess Saraswati are always worshipped with Maa Lakshmi.

These three deities Ganesha, Saraswati and Lakshmi have special significance

On success, knowledge and abundance.


For success, we pray to Lord Ganesha

For knowledge, we pray to Goddess Saraswati

For abundance, we pray to Goddess Lakshmi

Again let’s remember the Goals or aims of human life

Yes, to attain the goals represented by Moral Duty (Dharma), Prosperity (Arth), Desires (Karma) and Moksha (Liberation)

We all needs blessings from Lord Ganesha

He removes all obstacles by imparting intelligence and strength

We all need blessings from Goddess Lakshmi

She bestows auspiciousness, wealth, awareness of life’s purpose

And also fulfillment of desires

We all need blessings from Goddess Saraswati

She blesses with wisdom and knowledge.


Friends !

Therefore, to achieve our aim, goal or lakshya

We worship three deities together

If we get their blessings

There will be very less botheration

In a righteous way we have to lead our life

Thereby we can achieve the goals of our life

Every God and Goddess plays an important role in our life

This we all should remember to lead a great life

Maa Lakshmi will never abandon us

We should pray her daily

She will certainly make us happy, prosperous and bright.
