It is often seen in religious pictures that Maa Lakshmi sits near the feet of Lord Vishnu. But have you ever thought that despite being the goddess of wealth, why does Maa Lakshmi sit near the feet of Vishnu? Let’s know about the interesting fact.
According to mythological beliefs, it is said that once Devarshi Narad arrived to visit Maa Lakshmi and Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu was in sleep, so Narad ji thought it appropriate to wait. Only then Narad ji saw that mother Lakshmi was sitting near the feet of Lord Vishnu. Seeing this, a question came in Narad ji’s mind that why does the mother always sit at the feet of Shri Hari. Restless Narad ji could not stop himself from this question and he asked mother Lakshmi.
Answering Narad ji’s questions, Maa Lakshmi told that Dev Guru Brihaspati resides in the hands of women and the demon Guru Shukracharya in the feet of men. In such a situation, when Maa Lakshmi sits near the feet of Shri Hari, it brings auspiciousness and also the arrival of wealth. This is the reason why Maa Lakshmi not only sits near the feet of Shri Hari Vishnu, but also presses the feet of Lord Vishnu and when a woman touches the feet of a man, then there is a union between the God and the demon and it brings wealth. .
