~ Family Vs Money : New Significance of Laxmi (Money) and Saraswati (Wisdom) in Life

Traditionally in India, Saraswati (Wisdom/Knowledge) was given more importance than Laxmi (Money). Also, Money was considered as “one of the important things’ and not “the most important thing” in life.  Watch amazing insights about this change in paradigm about ‘Laxmi’ Vs ‘Saraswati’ on society and families.

As per Hindu Mythology , Laxmi (or Lakshmi) – Goddess of Wealth (Money) and Saraswati – Goddess of Knowledge/Wisdom.

laxmi-saraswati-giSome of Incredible Vedic Wisdom shared in the clip below are :

    • Laxmi (Money) , Alaxmi  (Dispute/Discord) and Saraswati (Wisdom/Knowledge), which Goddess(es) is/are living with you decides your Future or Destiny!!

    • Laxmi (Money) always comes with her INSEPERABLE sister Alaxmi  (Discord/Dispute/Lack of Harmony). To balance this YOU MUST please goddess Saraswati (Wisdom)!

    • You have to go to Goddess Saraswati (Wisdom/knowledge) she won’t come to you (Deserve first then Desire)

    • If you have Saraswati (Wisdom) Laxmi (Money) will definitely come. But, If you have only Laxmi (Money); Saraswati MAY NOT come to you!

    • What Sanskar (Good values) you receive during your upbringing (parents/ guardian/Society) will decide your beliefs about 2 Goddesses – Laxmi & Saraswati

    • “Money has become Currency for Love”, so there are disputes/discord in society!

    • If you ONLY have Laxmi (Money) and No Saraswati (Wisdom) , Dispute/Discord/Sorrow is CERTAIN!

In recent years, India has seen many family property disputes and law suits filing within family. Why is inherent property (Money) is so important than Family/close Relationships? Understand this issue knowing culture and mythological wisdom and try to find the real cause of this behaviour.
