Goddess Lakshmi, wife of Lord Vishnu, in Hinduism is symbolic of wealth, prosperity, love and beauty. Said to rid problems of money and fortune, Goddess Lakshmi is endowed with six auspicious and divine qualities, or Gunas. Believed to be the Mother of the Universe, she is the supreme embodiment of beauty and spirituality. She is worshiped in homes and business establishments to bring in wealth and fortune. The auspicious festival of Diwali is celebrated in honor of Goddess Lakshmi. People decorate their homes with oil lamps, candles and colorful rangoli. Special puja takes place known as the “Lakshmi Puja” and the doors are left open to facilitate her entry. An interesting tradition related to Lakshmi Puja is that of drawing the footprints or Shripada of Goddess Lakshmi on the thresholds of the houses. These are drawn pointing inwards symbolizing Lakshmi entering the home and staying there forever.
