    HOW TO DO LAKSHMI PUJA



    I do her Puja, wich is worshipp every friday, which looks like this ( below ) being hoenst I do Lakshmi Vishnu Puja, vishnu whom is Lakshmis other half, known as one of his avatars as Krishna.



    Ok so Lakshmi puja consists of :



    1 I put the pictures on the table making this my shrine, I like this way as it is like inviting guests to eat at your home rather than others do as in a temple (much simpler) I alos put some flowers and candles a scent x



    2 call upon the goddess with love



    3 A giving some offerings, milk, water, food, doesnt have to be all but i do. (you can pretend to feed them if you wish, i do) offer some money (which can go to charity when is enough)



    4 Washing the statues of either lakshmi, or vishnu too, I go bit over the top and do others too. Shiva (shiva lingam) saraswati, ganpati, durga aka goddess devine ) as in picture. Then give them a Chandlo, which is like an indian Bhindi, red dot on forehead. U have to buy "Kanku" red powder used in preyers. and then add a bit of rice, stands for purity.



    5 Washing a set of feet of lakshmi, comes with lakshmi puja sets, however I do this by imaging her sitting on the chair and move the chair then imagine myself washing her feet with milk water then dry, after getting her shoes and gold of, lol. then adding nailvarnish and mhendi (she has a few nailvarnishes, lol) then i give her a imaginery gifts (sari) I do same for vishnu - the nailvarnish and mhendi, but cut his nails and message his feet for like couple seconds, lol.



    6 Wash Lakshmi coin and Yantra, which is a representation of Money, and ask it to be activated. (square gold plate in pictures)  



    7 I also play her 108 names, lakshmi stotram (while I wash their feet)



    8 ok then u say the Lakshmi gayatri 11 times (can listen also) "AUM MAHA LAKSHMIY CHA VIDMAHE, VISHNU PUTNEY CHA DHEMAHEY, TANNO LAKSHMI PRACHODHEYAH (for those whom are hindus I spelt this in such a way so that those whom do not know hindi, gujarati can also try pronounce this)

     

    9 then main part Aarti. which is a hym, lighting a candle made of wool and melted butter, do it clockwise whilst singing the hym, once clockwise then a quarter at the bottom anti clockwise then clockwise again. (like if u look at a watch, going from 8 clockwise round the picture in view to 8 again then anti clockwise back to 4 then back around again all the way to 8 again and so on.



    10 Do preyers then say thankyou for coming then bye, to the goddess x.



    How I set Lakshmi puja







    Lakshmi yantra and coin.







    Lakshmi Statues (my pride and joy)

    There is a sanskrit proverb that goes thus,' Udyoginam purusha-simham upayati Lakshmi.' It means that great wealth comes to one who has the courage of a lion and who puts in all his efforts.

    Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the founder of the Art of Living Foundation and enlightened master, elaborates on this saying...

    Q: Guruji, How can we turn thoughts of lack into thoughts of abundance?


    Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: The very thought that you want to do it, means you have already started moving in that direction. Look at what your requirements are and you will see that they will always be met. Whatever you need always comes to you. But do not take it to an extreme and say, 'Let me just do nothing and let everything come to me', no, that is not correct. You have to put in your efforts, and you have to have courage. These two things bring you wealth. There is proverb in Sanskrit that says, ‘Udyoginam purusha-simham upayati Lakshmi.' It means that great wealth comes to one who has the courage of a lion and who puts in all his efforts. Therefore put in all your efforts, and be like a lion. Do you know, the lion is the laziest animal? It is the lioness who hunts for the prey and presents it to the lion. The lion just goes and eats the prey. The lioness does the work. The lion does not even do the work of hunting the prey. He is lazy, yet he is the king of the forest and has the confidence. So this is what you need to have - confidence and the sense of majesty of a lion. Then you must put in your 100% efforts, and that is when wealth comes to you. Do not be feverish about it, just take up a project and do it. Later on, you will see that you will get wealth as well, along with it.
