The Story of my Dear Laxmi Murti
I have seen allot over the last couple of years with Vibhutu materialisation on pictures. Murthis being materialised from nothing for fellow devotees and even a pendant for my little boy. I have a picture of Jesus in my Temple that has Vibhutu materialised on that is very old in nature a couple of years.
However with all of this and actually being close to a few of the above stories I have never myself received anything. My heart has had a desire though for a Murthi of my Ishta Dev whom I worship with devotion as she has been with me over many lifetimes. The moment I found out whom my Ishta Dev was, my heart found an instant connection with her and over the course of the next couple of years I have prayed to her.
In October 2011, I was in Germany for Navaratri to celebrate 9 days of prayers to the Divine Mother. One night I was chatting to Swami and I asked Him the following: "My Dearest Swami please could you ask Divine Mother for a Murthi of my Ishta Dev so I could worship her with more Devotion." Swami looked at me and said nothing, so I left it at that.
The following morning I was in the tent preparing a few things for the evening prayers when someone came to me and said Swami wants to see you. I left what I was doing to go and see what Swami wanted from me. Upon finding Swami in His personal room I quietly entered and said yes Swami. Swami looked at me and said ask me again what you asked me last night ask Divine Mother now she is listening. So I repeated my request with a folded head in a slightly softer tone.
Swami answered the following, I shall not give you a Murthi of your Ishta Dev I shall give you the aspect of Divine Mother that resides in My heart. He closed His eyes and put His hand on His chest, I was not sure what was to come next so I just sat and waited and the next moment Swami pulled a Murthi of Laxmi directly from His heart centre and handed her to me. He then said the following "if you look after Her with devotion She will grant you more than your Ishta Dev will be able to." "But be warned that She can be very strict if you don't look after her."
So since that day I have had her on my alter and have loved and adored her as She is beautiful. She now sits on a Sri Yantra and at the feet of a my Laxmi Narayanaya Murthis. Jai Ma
