On the auspicious occasion of ‘Vara Mahalakshmi’ festival which is widely celebrated across Karnataka, I present you the ‘Lakshminarayana’ sculpture of Hoysaleshwara Temple, Halebidu.

Lakshmi, also called as Mahalakshmi, is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity, fertility and courage. She is said to bring good luck and is believed to protect her devotees from all kinds of miseries and money-related sorrows.

I pray to Goddess Lakshmi to grant you your wishes and to protect you against all kinds of miseries and sorrows. Peace.
