- Antique Ganesha and Lakshmi Hand Stamped 80% Silver Amulet Small
- Goddess Lakshmi is revered as the Goddess of Wealth, Money and Prosperity. Lord Ganesha is much beloved as the God of Wisdom, Intelligence, Success in New Ventures and Prosperity.
- Lord Ganesha is also considered The Remover of All Life's Obstacles on the RIghteous Path, and he is worshipped at the beginning of any auspicious occasion like opening a new factory, entering a new house, or before starting on any great work or mission or alliance.
- The meaning of the pairing of Goddess Lakshmi alongside Lord Ganesha is:
- What is wealth without prosperity?
- What is money without the wisdom to use it properly?
- Will all the material gains in the world be permanent without intelligence? Can anyone achieve any great affluence without removing the obstacles on the path?
- Qualities of Lord Ganesha are so complementary to those of Goddess Lakshmi, that Hindu Custom requires they often be worshipped together. This also reminds us that we don’t have to aim only for material wealth but also have to aim for prudence and wisdom.
- Also, in most images or sculptures, Lakshmi is placed on the right hand side of Ganesha, as in Hindus there is a custom that husband sits right of wife, and this particular gesture is to mark that there is no such relationship between the two deities.
