Laxmi Mandala – the sacred geometrical diagram to invoke Goddess of wealth, Lakshmi.
Goddess Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth and prosperity and consort of Hindu God, Vishnu – the god of preservance. Lakshmi was emerged from the ocean of milk – Ksheer Sagar – when it was churned by the Devas (demi-gods) and Asuras (demons) to extract out Amrit – the elixir of life. Lakshmi personifies wealth, riches, and beauty. The Yantra is contained in a Bhupur (a square with 4 T-shaped doors), the doors give access to the Yantra. Inside the Bhupur are eight petals, representing the eight elements of the world – space, air, fire, water, earth, mind, intellect, and ego. The Yantra is green in colour. Green is a nuetral colour. It is a combination of hot yellow and cold blue. This colour has a restful effect on eyes. The six pointed star inside the circle of petals is a combination of upward and downward pointing triangle – the union of male and female energy. This superimposition of two traingles represents a balanced geometry.
