Perfect Exists

Do you want to feel PERFECT 🤩

Perfect 🤩

PERFECT!
I believe “Perfect”
to not only be attainable but vital to recognize as something necessary.

You can choose perfect perfection.

I, in this shining moment am perfect.
When I laugh with my daughter I am perfect.
When I am joyfully {literally} singing and dancing through my day;
I am perfect.
When I wake up healthy, able to walk, I am perfect.
When I receive a phone call from a friend, I am perfect. Together we, are perfect.
….
I believe;
Perfect is a state of mind.
In this moment “truly” even with
all the humility I’ve faced {and face} I seek the beauty in every detail. My thoughts are pure of heart, intentions are pure of heart, and I’ve discovered a freedom
I never would have thought possible!
Doesn’t this allow the gift to claim,
“I feel perfect
{in all my imperfections}
with all tragedies experienced.
I held in there, so… my life is perfect.”

I am the designer of every moment of every day.
I design with my mindset to beauty’s perfection.
If this wasn’t authentic.
If there wasn’t a way to bring perfection life, {perfect}
then the word itself would exist.
“perfect is a State of Mind”

I love you my beautiful friends !
Namasakram 🙏🏽

Scary 😳

Vulnerable 𝒱𝒶𝓃𝒾𝓈𝒽𝒶

Vulnerability is a lengthy read. Thank you for reading. Thank you for allowing me.

Repair and hope begins with humility. Please bear with me as I stand upon this rock. I wouldn’t be honest if I don’t share, “I am terrified of vulnerability”
Yet here it is.

17 years ago I buried my whole family. 13 people including my husband .
All this loss in one year, six months, and 17 days. I lived in the shadow of this tragedy for 16 of those years.

I had disassociated so successfully,
I see know was the only protection I had from not falling apart completely.
I became both narcissistic and convoluted in my intellectual ability to sustain some type of power, when truly I had lost it all. I had discovered that my family passed away and I was left here to die.

I have two daughters, one of which I’ve always been very close to.
She has always seen me, known that through this tragedy that she couldn’t imagine what it was doing to me.
This unfortunately put a lot of responsibility upon her, assisting my journey and purpose, as she always believed it was greater than I was able to even imagine. You can imagine how much stress is put on her!

Seven months ago, on my estranged oldest daughter‘s birthday, I had overstepped my boundaries with her her parenting and my granddaughter. She told me I needed to stay in my lane, and my lane is where I went, leaving her on her birthday at an intended sleepover to celebrate.

It was at that point both of my daughters decided that they couldn’t take it anymore.

I have been very grateful to have been discovered by a guru who has taken me under his wings. For the past 6 months I have traveled. Visiting different Hindu Temples, learning and studying under monks, and high priests.
I’ve been cleansed, had dozens of pujas and found a freedom
I was beginning to believe was unattainable.

Regret is a rough space.
Regret has also been the most rewarding in the sight of humble humility. I have a very special bond with my granddaughter {I’ve not seen for 6 months} one I have learned I also very much want to have with my beautiful 25 year old daughter.

What I’ve learned, is seeking the truth is all I have. Self preservation and the recognition for what I’ve done to be why our relationship has unraveled.

I know that missing them is selfish as my daughter needs the room to be in a space where she feels ok. Safe enough to allow me inside. I have more hope, having learned, this is just was what needed to happen to allow both of us the space for recognition. Allowing the 2 of us to thrive within a deeper understanding that will lead us into gaining a love, for who each of us are, independently also who we can be together.

I don’t necessarily want to be needed. I desire to be her choice that leads her to want me. Wanted by being more pure of heart.
Allowing her to express herself without my convoluted opinion.

My younger daughter {22} however,
has been traveling with me for 4 of those 6 months and seen curses lifted and the freedom of my Being unfold.

For this I am humbled everyday in her presence. Aware of seeking how to navigate for the most rewarding path needed to sew the seed needed to continue becoming as well as Being
“A Mom”

Providing what she needs and how to be this Being that silently shines a light upon her unfolding.
Allowing her the freedom to be exactly who she is and discover she is safe in my presence.

For this today I am most Grateful.

Seeking to reach my oldest daughter through positivity and having become an overwhelming flow of pure love.

Thank you for reading. For allowing me to be here!
Namasakram my friends

The Great Divide

Self Gratification

This That Divides Us

Sexy is not a compliment.

When a guy calls a woman sexy,
this is selfish gratification.

Telling a Woman you’ve never met
has nothing to do with complimenting.
On the contrary; the act of speaking word comes from a visual desire providing the Man with mental and visual satisfaction.

The rights to the word sexy belong
to a Man that has evolved from the investment of time. The captured moments deep within the beauty of intimacy with a Woman.
Whole spectrum intimacies together.

With the depth of endorsing this spoken, private privilege.
I invite you to acknowledge beauty.
Especially when you have never met the Woman so confidential referring to as sexy.

Her name isn’t sweetie, nor has she endorsed the privilege to be your sexy!

A Woman is a Beauty’Fly

Beautiful Name!

“Our names are not only for reference. Your names are lyrics in a song written just for you.”

In celebration of our Being Human.
Conscious of our actions as a Human Being.

We have to invest attention into how it is we are Being.

Hi’Story 🙋🏽‍♀️

Who Cares ?

Who Cares ?

 - Hi’Story  

What Is Numinous Guide And Healing ?
When we are born, no one has to tell us to breath from the diaphragm, we simply do.

Age 1/5 is when the blueprint for
who we are is set.
Age 5 an atmosphere is built, right below the neck, by all of life’s misleadings, keeping us from whole body awareness, soul and spirit awareness, holding us above the the shoulders, locked in the head.

Numinous Guide And Healing is a technique where I assist in guiding “Self” down passed that {chine} atmosphere, through the throat, taking a moment to visit and dance to the beat of the heart.
Continuing to fall into the safety and security of the {solar plexus}
A space within us all that I refer to as; Our Inner Soul’Ar Galactic Space, where all the abundance of energies, gifts of spirit connectedness, strengths, empowerment, and bravery are. We spend so much of our time. So much of our lives outsourcing. Unaware that every divine resource is right inside of us. Here within our reach.

When we make the journey through the atmosphere the has held us, trapped above the beauty for what is found below living only chin up, our passage way down into the recognition of Being more than a head and face we find safety within our Inner Soul’Ar home security, keeping others out, unable to steal our power.

When we are within our Inner Soul’Ar Galactic Space, this is where, the Spirit And Soul unite.

Spirit becomes the Souls Heart,
The Souls Heartbeat And we become,

From here is where we become the masters of manifest, manifesting

Greeting Yourself

“I” choose to Care for “Myself” enough to understand how to love me.

Meeting Myself

Remain firm in our thoughts, beliefs, and undeniable truth that we are all (human) Humans Being one race, connected by spirit. 

The spirit of Uni is and has been proven infallible time × time over.

What God looks like is irrelevant and where the inability of putting a face to the name causes ripples of doubt and disbelief.
Solution being holding space to greet ourselves.

A glance in the mirror, or even better, getting in touch with our souls.
Search, seek and find.

I am going to be direct.
No judgement, only care.

We are individuals by height n weight, baby versions of energy,
also being the big picture.
Not a smaller version of anything.

There can be no benefit in narrow thinking, or being so far removed from ones very own spirit.
An intentional relationship having tapped us into a bond with our inner child.

I come from a place of intense care❗
Let’s not limit themselves from
the connection we can have with
(Uni), the source that breaths into us life.

Uni is real, and comes in a package deal with added goodies for our energetic life manifesting pleasures.

Goodie additions include,
1 * individual planetary manifesting power.
2 * Natural healing remedies provided by mother nature.
3 * Power from the energy Lord Luna provides (in abundance when full)
4 * The Sun, providing the ability to live at all❗
5 * Trees to continue the great Godly breath.

More n more n more goodies

So... if we believe in the power of energy, planets, trees, Luna ect.
And believe in these sources because we can see them.
The truth is, no we can't.
We only see an image of these things and miss the source.

My question is, if you do believe in these sources, what do you believe?

Do we know how to gain the understanding for the power in
how to use them?
If not is it unrealistic to say,
There is a desperate need to gain
the tools for a deep spirit understanding of self.

Without these tools, we are
limiting ourselves by not understanding what we know,
leaving us in the void?

Let’s Look within, be within, understand within, then look into
the mirror, you will see a God,
a Goddess.
“You, will see Yourself”

We are created from the energy source.
The motherboard of reflection 🕉

Looking Forward 🙏

Wake up Alive

If anyone ever asks;
“Who are you?”
Find yourself able to respond with 1 word. A word that defines you.

Current Situation

To be FOUND, I had to stop looking. It was then I was able to see and be seen. Namasakram 🙏🏽
Have you ever had someone ask;
Who are you?


When asked, have you wondered,
how to answer?

“WHO”
Hmmm...
My personal qualifying characteristics.?
Based upon the degree of
professional development?
My answer providing the inquirer
with a menu.
A painted image filled with options available for my own situational comforts.

“WHO AM I?”
Options for Feeding my hunger to
“FIT IN?”

“WHO AM I?”
“Reaching To Feel Acceptance”
or a state of self standards.

“Who Am I?”
• A Mother
• A Dancer
• A Doctor
• An Artist
• A Singer
Etc..

“WHO AM I?”

I’d like to share with you my
answer to this question.
A question someone asked me
8 years ago, when at that time
I responded with a list of things
I do.

5 years passed until I not only understood the value of the
question is a reflection of my worth.

So...
I began to define myself as

WORTHY.” - “I AM WORTHY”

For the next 18 months, I began
to delve into the
“VALUE” of understanding reflection. “WORTHY” of standing in the light
of Being an opportunity,
vs Being a character built upon options.

Today I have found myself
“INSPIRED to understand my personal
SELF” reflection.

“WHO AM I?”

- I Am Inspiration
{Inspirational}
{Inspired}

My name is Vanisha.
Vanisha is not a simply a reference.
𝒱𝒶𝓃𝒾𝓈𝒽𝒶, is lyrics in a song 🎶 written just for me.
I am the composer.
Pure of Heart, inspired to sing
my own praises.

I Invest attention to those I consciously choose to be close
enough to call upon me.
“Singing my song.”

Attention on the importance of
Being “WORTHY” of calling upon one another. I see the recognition of
our personal “VALUE?”

The key is to unlock the door
that leads to understanding our individual WORTH.
WORTHY of singing one another’s praises.
INVESTING the ATTENTION needed to truly appreciate one another’s
VALUE.

Summary:
“You are WORTHY of my time because
I see your VALUE.

I sing your praises.

WHO ARE YOU?
If you haven’t yet discovered the word that defines you. I invite you to respond with the same answer I found to define me during times preparation of my unfolding.
“WORTHY.”
“YOU ARE WORTHY.”

I Am Inspiration and,
Vanisha is my song 🎶

Dear Hugger

Hugging The Hugger

The average length of a hug between two people is 3 seconds. 
But researchers have discovered something fantastic.

When a hug lasts 20 seconds,
there is a therapeutic effect on
the body and mind.
The reason is that a sincere hug produces a hormone called
“oxytocin",
also known as the love hormone.
This substance has many benefits
in our physical and mental health, helps us, among other things, to relax, to feel safe and calm our fears and anxiety.

This wonderful calming is offered free of charge every time we have
a person in our arms, who cradled
a child, we cherish a dog or cat, we're dancing with our partner,
the closer we get to someone or
just hold the shoulders
of a friend.

Consciousness

“How are you Being today my friends?”

“Being Consciousness

Continuum – Continually Conscious

Thus continuing the challenge of continually “Being” Conscious

“Be” Honest – “Being” True

“UnI has nothing to do with me and you, but everything to do with Us”

New Personal Challenge

In addition to my Mantras.
In addition to connecting the “Souls” of my feet to the roots of “UnI for my continuing to receive the “Verse” for myself, and to share with my friends,
All of y’all” 💜

I am sitting in my hotel room, thinking about “Being.” Being Human, and what that means;
To Be Human?
Then I thought, I can’t just,
“Be Human.
One must check in with oneself while authentic reflection {in the mirror}

asking; “How Am I Being?”

In addition to my seeking “TRUTH”
Every morning after 6:00am Mantra/7:00am,
again in the afternoon 1:11pm;
And, Every closing night,
I” will check in with “Myself.”
“𝒱𝒶𝓃𝒾𝓈𝒽𝒶, How are you Being?

Yours sincerely,
Bella Uni’Verse

“UnI has nothing to do with me and you, but everything to do with Us”

– Imagine Reflecting

Image Reflecting

Image Reflecting

 
Reflection is not something that most of us understand in its full measure.
“Image is a universal description of personal depiction.”

We could look in the mirror to greet ourselves with kind recognition, but instead do we check our appearance?

Do we then claim
"A bad hair day"
something we're all guilty of.

Reflection comes from the deepest depths within us, deeper than the flesh.

Reaching down into the roots of all energetic depths,
through the “SOULS OF OUR FEET.”

Reflection comes from the cavities

of our past.
The {history}
Hi’Story of our lives unearthed.

The image is not always reflection.
In order to find reflection,

we have to begin with,
finding time, taking notice of our beautiful details, our beautiful existence.

Proudly embrace what we call flaws, these are perfect imperfections. Consciously invest attention to the privilege of having the ability to, visually capture an in-depth look.
To view admirably, seeing layers of beauty in the mirror.

Greeting ourselves when we wake.
Then again midday,

and before closing our day to sleep; always remembering to meet our reflection in the mirror, saying self, I care for you enough to understand how to love you.

I'm proud of you.
I am brave.
Hugging ourselves with pleasure

to be able.

Smiling upon ourselves,

we grant ourselves a restful
nights sleep.

All of these beautiful elements

that grant us reflection,
we are allowed to do over and over everyday.

Never scheduling a meeting with another Being before we have first greeted ourselves!

Remember that within you is a hidden treasure with the desire to be be the honorable choice.
First being our own personal choice.
Leading to Being the choice, chosen by others by the beauty from within Being, someone others want, not need.

Merry Moments EVERYBODY

Human Being – Being Human – Happy Solstice !

One of my FAVORITES

• Be brave, even if you're not, apply to be the founder of bravery. Be conscious of your “Being” conscious. 
• Don’t move into life in a permanent subconscious state. You will miss 90% of everything!
• Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments, it's there for convince, not the invasive texts and FB callers who you’ve never met. Instant everything has developed in an expectation for immediate response. NO!
• Don't be afraid to go out on a limb.
That's where the fruit is.
• Don't burn bridges, you'll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river.
• Don't forget, a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. Although being truly cared for is a strange thing these days to accept.
• Don't major in minor things.
• Don't say you don't have enough time, you were given the exact number of hours a day that were given to JESUS.
• Don't spread yourself to thin, learn to say no politely and quickly. (less concerned of how you are affecting the one receiving your NO)
• Don't use time or words carelessly.
Neither can be retrieved.
• Don't waste time grieving over past mistakes, learn from them and move on.
• Every person needs to have their moments in the sun, when they raise their arm in victory, knowing that on this day, at this hour, they were at their very best.
• Get your priorities straight, no one ever said on their bed of passing, “GEE, I wish I'd spent more time on my phone!”
• Give people a second chance, but not a third. Judge your success by the degree that you're enjoying peace, health, caring enough to understand how to love.
• Learn to listen, opportunity often knocks oh so softly.
• Leave everything a little better than you found it. (Even if it wasn’t received at the time, you know it was the, your best)
• Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation.
• Loosen up, relax, except for those rare life or death matters.
• Nothing is as important as it first seems. • • • Never cut what can be untied.
• Never overestimate your power to change others. (Even if it’s tough and they don’t like it, eventually the seed will bloom!)
• Never underestimate your power to change yourself.
• Remember that overnight success usually takes about 15 years.
• Remember that winners do what losers don't want to do.
• Seek opportunity not security.
A boat in a harbor is safe, but eventually the bottom will rot out.
• Spend less time worrying who's right, and more time worrying whats right.
• Stop blaming others, take responsibility for every area in your life.
• Success is getting what you want, happiness is liking what you get.
• The importance of winning is not what we get from it, but what we become because of it.


“When facing a difficult task, act as though it's impossible to fail.”

Looking Forward ♡
There is so much within this that speaks to me. Specifically today, in my current life. There have been so many challenges in this live. From tragedies {my family of 13 plus my husband passing away in just over 1 year} to homelessness, depression, personal struggles to find out who I am without so many insecurities. And the most challenging of all, “Being” honest with myself. 
Honest about “Being” enough.
Honest about NOT “Being” enough.
And... Honestly allowing who I am to be just enough.

Every day is new while I am allowed to simply “Be” Human.

Happy Solstice!
Thank you for accepting me as I am.

Authentic Perception

     Authentic Perception
When the eyes deceive the deeper perception of authenticity, where external beauty is powered and empowered from the core of her. From the center of the earth is where her motherboard is rooted. 

She is more than an epidermal delight. She is more than brilliant. She is more than powerful and innovative.

She is simply beautiful in the depths of her silent nature. Here within her hidden secret palace is where you will find more than pure beauty of heart and soul. There in this magical sanctuary is where the creativity of dreams are born.

Where the beauty of a woman proves to not exude through the toxic image of being only skin deep tissue. The Power of Beauty, is defined by the exuberance of the soul, seen beyond a mockup preview. Understanding that the Investment of your Attention, is what will gain the interest. Allowing you access to empower such a gift as the;
𝒮𝒶𝒸𝓇𝑒𝒹 𝒟𝑒𝓈𝑒𝓇𝓉 𝑅𝑜𝓈𝑒
🌹

As she enters, flowering upon her foundation, blooming with this unique beauty;

Wrapping her petlas around you with an essence that empowers a vibrating frequency so powerful, the whole body, mind, spirit, and soul, explode in a spinning intoxication.

The authenticity, and reality related to Experiencing Utopia is Incomparable to any other.

A profound discovery, in the building of pleasures with eager anticipation for the next celestial unfolding.

Falling upon the foundation of magic.
Playing in the garden of submission.
Indulging in the service Dominion.
My Succulent invitation, for the privilege.
pondering consideration awaits…
Paradise is only a reach away.
Found by, the investment of attention.

Stopping time to;

Capture each moment.

A reel to reel production, for your late night, having had Experienced magic, movie replay.

Come; delve into privilege

Understanding, Goddess Kali ⚔️📿🩸

In the eyes of westerners, Kali is a Goddess dark of mind, body and soul, a mysterious Goddess of death and destruction. However her story is far more complex and far-reaching; 
She cannot be easily fitted into a typical western narrative of good verses evil, and in fact transcends both.

Goddess Kali Pt. 1

Hello my lovely friends 🙏🏼 

I will be sharing with you over the course of a few months an in depth look into understanding Hinduism 🕉.

We will travel into the visionary aspects as well as the gifted practices, beholding our Hindu Gods and Goddess.

NOT TO BE ALARMED!!

Kali is a source of many things so, read carefully and resourcefully as to receive understanding clearly and objectively. She is quite the Goddess to say the least!

I hope you enjoy.
Also, if you have any questions, or would like to simply engage, please do! I look forward to connecting with you. Honestly, I desire this very much ! So please, don’t hesitate to say hello, introduce yourself or anything at all. I’m here with hope to bring us together in real time.

Truly, honorably, and sincerely,
Your,

Thank You 🙏🏼

I want to share my gratitude for all of the likes and follows ! All I share comes from the gift of being a connected conduit. So please, understand this 5’3 Woman is like a spillway, here to wash away confusion and struggles upon your shoulders. My purpose is; “To care enough to understand how to love 💗”

The Gratitude of Gifts Given 📖

Lakshmi is the divine power that transforms dreams into reality. She is prakriti, the perfect creation: self-sustaining, self-contained Nature. She is maya, the delightful delusion, the dream-like expression of divinity that makes life comprehensible, hence worth living. She is shakti, energy, boundless and bountiful.

- Shri Vaishnava Tradition Pt.5
In the twelfth century AD, 
a new form of Vaishnavism called
Shri-Vaishnavism evolved in South India. Like other Vaishnava orders, it visualised Vishnu as the embodiment of the supreme divine principle. However, this order was unique as it refused to acknowledge Vishnu independently. It insisted on the presence of Lakshmi beside him.

For Shri-Vaishnava scholars, such as Vedanta Deshika, Lakshmi is indispensable while approaching Vishnu. He represents righteousness; she represents compassion. She is like a mother intervening between a stern father (God) and an errant son (the devotee).

Maha-Lakshmi, the Great Goddess
Maha-Lakshmi, the Tantrik form of Lakshmi, is less the goddess of wealth and more the supreme mother-goddess; painting from Orissa.
In Tantrik texts, which were composed around the same time as the Puranas, Lakshmi acquired supreme importance. She was Maha-Lakshmi, the Supreme Goddess.

Lakshmi is often differentiated from Maha-Lakshmi. While the former is the consort of Vishnu and the Goddess of wealth, Maha-Lakshmi is viewed as an autonomous entity, the supreme embodiment of the Mother-Goddess. When worshipped as Maha-Lakshmi, Lakshmi is not visualised as a beautiful goddess seated on a lotus, pot in hand, but like a Virginal Warrior-Goddess riding a lion, much like Durga. This form of the Goddess is especially popular in Maharashtra.

Ancient Pancharatra texts that adore Maha-Lakshmi consider her to be the root of all creation. In the beginning, they say,

the cosmic soul—the unfathomable unmanifest Narayana—desired to create the cosmos. But he did not have the resources to do so. As he pondered over this problem, his dormant energy, his shakti, burst forth in a blinding light, manifesting as
Maha-Lakshmi.

Maha-Lakshmi placed the seed of divine desire in the palm of her hand and unleashed the dynamic forces of creation until the three worlds took shape and all forms of life came forth.

In the Lakshmi Tantra, the Goddess says:


I am inherent in existence.
I am the inciter, the potential that takes shape. I manifest myself.
I occupy myself with activity and finally dissolve myself.
I pervade all creations with vitality, will and consciousness. Like ghee that keeps a lamp burning, I lubricate the senses of living beings with the sap of my consciousness.”


Lakshmi is the divine power that transforms dreams into reality.

Lakshmi is prakriti, the perfect creation: self-sustaining, self-contained Nature. She is maya, the delightful delusion, the dream-like expression of divinity that makes life comprehensible, hence worth living. She is shakti, energy, boundless and bountiful.

To realise her is to rejoice in the wonders of life.

Fickle and Independent Pt. 4
Nowadays, Hindus accept Lakshmi as the eternal consort of Vishnu, the preserver of the world. In her long history, however, the Goddess has been associated with many other deities. 

According to Ramayana, Mahabharata and Puranas, the Goddess Lakshmi first lived with the demons before the Gods acquired her. She graced Asuras such as Hiranayaksha, Hiranakashipu, Prahalad, Virochana and Bali, rakshasas such as Ravana and yakshas such as Kubera before

she adorned the court of Indra, King of Devas, the most renowned of Vedic Gods.

Cities of the asuras (Hiranyapura), yakshas (Alakapuri), rakshasas (Lanka) and nagas (Bhogavati) have all been described as cities of gold, Lakshmi’s mineral manifestation.

Within the Vedic pantheon, Lakshmi was linked with many Gods, especially those associated with water bodies: Indra, the Rain-God (bestower of fresh water); Varuna, the Sea-God (source of all water);

Soma, the Moon-God (waxer and waner of tides).
Indra’s wife Sachi was also known as Puloma, which is the name of an Asura-Woman suggesting entry of Lakshmi from the world of asuras into world of devas.

As the Vedic Gods waned into insignificance around the fifth century BC, two Gods came to

dominate the classical Hindu worldview: The world renouncing Hermit-God Shiva and the world affirming
Warrior-God Vishnu.
Lakshmi was briefly associated with Shiva before she became the faithful consort of Vishnu-Narayana, the ultimate refuge of man.
With Vishnu, she was domesticated.
No longer fleet footed, she sat demurely by his side, on his lap or at his feet.

The association with many Gods has led to Lakshmi being viewed as fickle, restless and independent. Sociologists view the mythology of Lakshmi’s fickleness as indicative of her cult’s resistance to being assimilated with mainstream Hinduism. Even today there is tension between the mythology of Lakshmi as an independent Goddess and her mythology as Vishnu’s consort.

Philosophers choose to view the fickleness and independence of Lakshmi as an allegory for the restlessness of fortune. More often than not, there are no rational explanations for fortune and misfortune. Good times come without warning and leave as suddenly.

Blessings of Appeal Pt.2

Pt. 2 of my connected bond with Goddess Lakshmi. You may also find yourself entranced by her divine powers. Receiving from her the Uni’Verse’All kiss from the comforts life spills from having that beautiful bond !
The practice of personifying the beauty and bounty of earth as a Goddess was prevalent in all ancient cultures.

The Greeks had Core, the
Corn-Goddess, who was known to
Romans as Demeter
.

The Egyptians had Isis,
Sumerians had Innana,
Babylonians had Ishtar,
Persians had Anahita and
Vikings had Freia.

Shri-Lakshmi is the Hindu form of the timeless Mother-Goddess who nurtures and nourishes all life.
In India, not only Hindus but also Buddhists and Jains adore Lakshmi. Buddhism and Jainism are primarily monastic orders that turned away from Vedic rituals and Brahmanical dogmas about 2,500 years ago.
They, however, could not abandon this delightful Goddess.

In the Buddhist Jatakas, there are tales of Men and Women who request the Goddess Lakshmi to drive away
the Goddess of misfortune, Kalakanni. Images of Kubera, the pot-bellied Yaksha-King and treasurer of the Gods, who is closely associated with Lakshmi, adorn most Buddhist shrines.

In holy Jain texts, it is said when an exalted soul like a Tirthankara is about to be born his mother dreams of many auspicious things, including the Goddess Shri. Symbols of wealth and royal power commonly associated with Lakshmi are auspicious to both Buddhists and Jains.

These include:
• the pot
• pile of gems
• a throne
• flywhisk
• conch
• a fish
• a parasol
• nagas
• yakshas
• footstool
• a horse
• an elephant
• a cow
and
• the wish-fulfilling tree.

An Ancient Goddess
Shri-Lakshmi has a long history testified by the fact that her first hymn, the Shri Shukta, was added to the Rig Veda, the oldest and most revered of Hindu scriptures, somewhere between 1000 and 500 BC.

Considering her popularity amongst Buddhists and Jains, it has been proposed that her worship may
predate the Vedic culture and may have developed independently before she was brought into the
Vedic, Buddhist and Jain folds.

Scholars are of the view that initially, the words Shri and
Lakshmi referred to anything that
was auspicious or brought good luck or bestowed riches and power.

Later the two words were personified into two Goddesses who eventually merged.
Thus, Shri-Lakshmi came into being.
Fragmentary verses in the Shatapatha Brahmana, written not long after the Vedas, talks of the birth of Lakshmi from the mouth of Prajapati to provide the inhabitants of the cosmos food, clothing, shelter, and all things that make life more comfortable.
She also offered wisdom, strength, beauty, luck, sovereignty and splendour—the good things in life.

My luxuriating life together, with the lovely, Goddess Lakshmi 🌺

Lustrous as fire, radiant as gold,
Resplendent as the sun, calm as the moon.

For the next several days I will be sharing one my treasured and privileged bond with you.

Goddess Lakshmi Pt.1

The ancient story of 
Goddess Lakshmi
— also known as Sri;
Bestower of power, wealth and sovereignty

Draped in red saree, bedecked with gold ornaments, seated on a lotus, pot in hand, flanked by white elephants, the image of Lakshmi adorns most Hindu homes and business establishments.

Lakshmi is the Goddess of wealth, fortune, power, luxury, beauty, fertility, and auspiciousness. She holds the promise of material fulfilment and contentment.
She is described as restless, whimsical yet maternal, with her arms raised to bless and to grant.

For centuries Hindus have invoked

her thus:
Beautiful goddess seated on a chariot.
Delighted by songs on lustful elephants,
Bedecked with lotuses, pearls

and gems.

Lustrous as fire, radiant as gold,
Resplendent as the sun, calm as the moon. Mistress of cows and horses
— Take away of poverty and misfortune
Brings joy, riches, harvest and children.
Shri is the sacred sound of cosmic auspiciousness and abundance since Vedic times.
The popularity of Lakshmi can be gauged by the fact that her sacred name

Shri.

Shri is written atop most documents and spoken before addressing a God,
a teacher, a holy man or any revered individual. The word evokes amongst other things: grace, affluence, abundance, auspiciousness, and authority.

When the word is spoken or written, an aura of holiness is established. Whatever follows the word is imbued with divine blessing. Married men and women are addressed as Shriman and Shrimati as they have Lakshmi’s blessings to harness the wealth of the world to support family and sustain society. Ascetics are not addressed as Shriman as they have renounced worldly riches; unmarried men and women are not addressed as Shriman and Shrimati as they are still in preparation for the householder’s life.

Just as the word Aum is associated with the mystical side of life, the word ‘Shri’ is associated with the material side of existence.
