Lakshmi Ganesha – The Hindi word ‘Chaturbhuj’ means the one who has four hands. In this brass sculpture Lord Ganesha is depicted with his four hands. The upper left hand has a ‘Pharsa’ or an axe symbolizing cutting attachment bonds. The lower right hand is raised with palm facing outwards away from the body with fingers flexed. This hand gesture is called ‘Abhayamudra’ that offers protection for all from all evils. The upper right hand is shown holding a conch, ‘Shankha’ in Hindi. The sound of the conch is considered pious in Hinduism and represents the call to come and pray. The lower left hand holds a special sweet called ‘Modak or Laddoo’. It is believed that it is the favorite sweet of Lord Ganesha, also it represents the sweet result of prayers one offers and the sweetest things of all - The liberation or ‘Moksha’. Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth/money, prosperity, and fortune. Also she is the spouse of Lord Vishnu, who is believed to be the supreme savior of this universe. It is believed that worshipping goddess Lakshami brings good luck, removes misery and poverty. Lakshmi is worshipped in Hinduism in homes and also at commercial establishments as the goddess of wealth for their success. The festival of Diwali in India sees special prayers in homes, commercial places and temples of goddess Lakshmi with Lord Ganesha. She also enjoys worship as the consort of Vishnu in many temples.
