Who Channeled Ashta Lakshmi Reiki?
Ashta Lakshmi Reiki was channeled by Dr.Chandra Bala. Ashta Lakshmi worship is an old tradition in India, as Goddess Lakshmi is known as the giver of abundance and prosperity. Goddess Lakshmi is also known as the Angel of money, wealth, abundance, and prosperity. So let’s find out why Goddess Lakshmi is so closely related to money, wealth and abundance.
The origin and Meaning of the word Lakshmi
Goddess Lakshmi is closely related to money, wealth, and prosperity due to her name. Her name Lakshmi can be explained in many ways. The name Lakshmi comes from Sanskrit words like “LakShyam,” which means goal, “LakShaNaM,” meaning aspect or characteristics, “LakSha,” which has a literal meaning of Rs. 100,000 or a target, and “LakShaM,” which means aim or target.
Goddess Lakshmi also known as Sri (in Vedas) or Shree. Goddess Lakshmi is depicted as a very pretty beautiful gorgeous lady, either standing or sitting on a lotus. She holds lotus flowers in her hands, some still budding. She even wears a necklace made of lotus flowers. Usually, Goddess Lakshmi is shown with four arms, but sometimes she’s shown with eight arms. These represent symbolic meanings in mythology.
Symbolism of Goddess Lakshmi
Goddess Lakshmi, known as the embodiment of wealth, prosperity, and fortune, is a revered figure in Hindu mythology. Her depiction is rich with symbolism, with each element carrying profound significance.
One of the most prominent symbols associated with Goddess Lakshmi is her four arms, sometimes eight arms. These arms represent her ability to bestow blessings, abundance, and protection upon her devotees from all four directions, East, west, North and South. They also symbolize her omnipresence and her ability to multitask, symbolizing her power to grant the blessings of wealth and prosperity in various aspects of life.
Another notable symbol associated with Goddess Lakshmi is the lotus flower. She is often depicted standing or sitting on a fully bloomed lotus, signifying purity, divine beauty, and transcendence. Just as the lotus blooms amidst muddy waters, Goddess Lakshmi’s presence brings about spiritual enlightenment and purity amidst the chaos and challenges of life.
Furthermore, the lotus symbolizes detachment, indicating that one should strive for material wealth without becoming attached to it. It serves as a reminder to seek inner fulfillment and spiritual growth.
Her symbols carry deep meanings and messages, encouraging individuals to seek balance, abundance, and spiritual growth in their pursuit of material wealth.
There are many more symbols of Goddess Lakshmi like gold coins, owl, etc. which I have discussed thoroughly in the Ashta Lakshmi Reiki Attunement Course.
