This month, with the Goddess conference looming, Jen has handed yours truly the Sacred Essence reigns. Here’s what happened since that momentous decision was taken…
Goddess Lakshmi means Good Luck to Hindus. The word '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.
Lakshmi is the household goddess of most Hindu families, and a favourite of women. Although she is worshipped daily, the festive month of October is Lakshmi's special month. Lakshmi Puja is celebrated on the full moon night of Kojagari Purnima (this coming Tuesday 11/10).
And this from Doreen Virtue…
“Lakshmi is a beautiful and benevolent Hindu goddess who brings abundance to those who call upon her. Lakshmi’s connection to lotus flowers, elephants, and water represents her absolute faith in fertility and abundance available to everyone. She’s happy to bring supply to you, whether that means money, time, knowledge, or opportunity. Lakshmi works with Ganesh, the elephant headed deity who’s known as the “overcomer of obstacles”. Together, they’re an unstoppable team that works to help you release fear and accept abundance.”
Please R.S.V.P. by Monday so we can arrange your materials for the arty festivities.
