Lakshmi Sarawathi

Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth & when SHE bless our house/ office; there will be progress & prosperity. Saraswati is the goddess of wisdom & when SHE bless our family, there is peace at home. But the two of them rarely stay in same place, that is why peace and prosperity rarely exist together. When wealth (Lakshmi) comes, quarrel over money starts and then Saraswati who likes peace, runs away. These two goddesses are described as quarrelling sisters & the only force who can bring them together is Ganesha. That is why the images of Lakshmi and Saraswati with Ganesha in the middle have become very popular. Lakshmi is dressed in red and is covered with jewels. Saraswati wears white sari and does not like much jewels, but like veena. Lakshmi is connected with lotus flowers and pots overfilled with gold and grains. Saraswati is associated with books and musical instruments. Lakshmi brings wealth & material pleasures. Saraswati brings intellectual & Knowledge bliss. To have both together, one has to worship & pray to Lord Ganesha.

Om Shri Ganeshaaya Namaha !
