A vendor selling Lotus near Kasthamandap in Kathmandu this morning and it is hotcake today because Lotus is must for worshipping Goddess Laxmi during Tihar (Dipawali).
Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), light, wisdom, fortune, fertility, generosity and courage; and the embodiment of beauty, grace and charm. Representations of Lakshmi are also found in Jain monuments. Mahalakshmi brings good luck to her devotees. She is believed to protect her devotees from all kinds of misery and money-related sorrows.
