ASHTALAKSHMI Smudge of Prosperity
The Ashta Lakshmi smudge contains the energy of the eight manifestations of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of prosperity. She presides over the eight sources of wealth: Adi, Dhana, Dhanya, Dhairya, Gaja, Vara, Vijaya and Vidya Lakshmi.
Adi Lakshmi (Primeval Lakshmi) is portrayed to be the earliest form of Lakshmi. Adi Lakshmi is the manifestation who supports a seeker to reach Source, or Brahman. She is believed to grant dhyana, a state of absolute silence, bliss, and peace. This aspect of the goddess is responsible for the furtherance in the quest for spiritual wealth. The other Lakshmis are each responsible for specific forms of wealth and abundance— Money, Auspiciousness, Patience, Courage, the granting of Boons, Victory and Knowledge.
Invoke the Ashta Lakshmis by name and pray to them to bring in all forms of abundance into your home, family and life.
