    provides or rather helps in attaining victories but not only in battle fields but also in the field of life. She is one of the Ashta Lakshmi and she helps in overcoming all the hurdles of life and passing every difficult stage with flying colors. She gives strength to both body and mind and help in surpassing the difficult and troublesome phases of life with ease and success. She is also known as Jaya Lakshmi.

    Vijaya not only means external victory but it also means the inner growth we gain with time. Attaining maturity and understanding life with clear and positive perspective is also a way of winning. Also, it is not necessary to make other lose in order to gain victory. One can win from his own conventional, regressive and orthodox attitude and beliefs. This form of wealth gives strength to our nature and character and helps us in achieving success in all kinds of ventures.

    Depiction

    Vijaya Lakshmi is depicted in red garments and is adorned with flowers. She is an eight-armed goddess who holds various kinds of weapons. She holds a disc, sword, shield and a noose. She has a lotus and a conch in other two hands. She makes gestures from her two more hands from which one is in abhaya mudra and another in varada mudra. Abhaya mudra is to dispel fear and to provide safety to her devotees from hurdles faced both physically and mentally. Varada mudra is a ‘giving gesture’ through which the Goddess fulfills the wishes of her worshippers. It is believed that Vijaya Lakshmi never lets down her devotees, be it exams, jobs, disease or any real-life situation, she always blesses them with triumph.

    Legend


    According to a legend, a man named Vidya Rannar worshipped Vijaya Lakshmi with all his heart, he also performed severe penance, seeing which the Goddess was impressed and decided to pay him a visit. She wanted to know if he was worth of gaining victory. To put him to test, the Goddess told him that no matter how much he prays, he will not be able to enjoy luxuries in this life as he was born in an inauspicious time. The goddess went away but Vidya Rannar didn’t stop performing his regular rituals. He slowly came out of the need of materialistic world and became an ascetic. The goddess was impressed by his dedication and presented him with abundance of wealth but the man needed it no more. He decided to create a new kingdom with all the wealth he gained, in the name of the Goddess which came to be known as Vijaya Nagara Empire.
