Lakshimi is a Hindu Goddes She is the anthropomorphic version of manifestation in the material world. Lakshimi says ‘ask and it shall be given’. Lakshimi gave the God Indra a drink called Soma (wise blood) from her own body so he could see through the veils of Maya and produce the illusion of birth giving.
Lakshimi is a goddess who needs to be adored with candles and incense. She is celebrated at dwali, the festival of lights, where Hindus clean their houses in her honour. (One way to make housework inspiring!)
