    . She is also known as Maha Lakshmi, meaning the Great Goddess.

    ‘Adi’ means eternal existence and therefore Adi Lakshmi is the Goddess of continuous wealth, the wealth which has no beginning or ending. She resides along with Lord Narayana, an incarnation of Vishnu, in his abode named Vaikunta. She is also the source of happiness and thus is also named Ramaa.

    Depiction

    Adi Lakshmi is depicted with several arms in many paintings and idols but she is believed to be a four armed Goddess who carries a lotus, symbol of continuous and pure knowledge in one hand and a white flag, symbolizing purity and cleanliness of thoughts in another. Other hand is in Abhaya Mudra, representing protection, peace and benevolence. She dispels all the fears of her devotees by giving them power through this gesture. And the last hand is in Varada Mudra that is her gesture of giving. She is a compassionate goddess who always offers help and charity to her devotees. She also absolves their sins thus providing them a way to salvation. She is depicted sitting on a lotus representing beauty and purity. Vishnu’s lap is also her place of rest.

    Roles of Adi Lakshmi

    It is believed that whole creation has emerged from Adi Lakshmi. She is the womb and all the creation is her child. Brahma, the male creator of the universe, was considered formless but by giving this deity a shape and form, ancient people have tried to personify the female creator of the universe.  The attempt to give a form, was to solve the puzzle of creation but she is unfathomable and way beyond the meager imagination of human mind. The universe will keep getting destructed and changing, but Adilakshmi will stay above all the devastation.

    It is believed that she also gave birth to the Gods. Three eggs emerged from her. The one egg gave life to VishnuVishnuVishnu

    Vishnu, the preserver and sustainer of the universe, in the form of Narayana, is served to, by Adi Lakshmi and by serving him, she serves the whole creation.
