An altar is the focal point of your sacred space, the place where energy is raised, magick is spun, and your intentions are given shape and form by the hands of the Goddess and God.
This altar focuses on the cosmic power of the Hindu Divine Couple, Lakshmi and Vishnu.
Hindu Goddess LAKSHMI is the epitome of wealth and abundance in both the material and spiritual realms. She rules prosperity in all its forms, and widely bestows Her gifts to those who are open to receive. One of her names, Shri, translates as auspiciousness: the epitome of beauty, lovingkindness, health and well-being, good fortune, and material wealth.
VISHNU is Lakshmi's consort and a central God in the Hindu pantheon. His name means “all-pervading”, and he is the Preserver, the Sustainer, and the Protector. Vishnu maintains order and abundance with peace and compassion whenever the world is threatened with evil, chaos, and destructive forces.
One of the traditions for a Lakshmi altar is to always have an image of Vishnu present, because without him, she (and her blessings) will not stay.
