The popular belief is that Goddess Lakshmi appeared during
the Samudra Manthan – churning of ocean.
Goddess Lakshmi is associated with prosperity, wealth and
cleanliness. The cleanliness aspect is quite often ignored. When the mind is
clean of jealousy, ego, hatred and anger, Goddess Lakshmi makes such minds her
abode. Prosperity and peace automatically arrives when the mind is clean.
