Our Devi ~Varamahalakshmi: she is me, she is my feeling, she is my emotion, she is everything me. I have watched my paternal grandmother and my mom making Varamahalakshmi starting from tying the saree to applying chandan-haldi mixture to shape her face and then adorn her with jewelery. I follow the age old tradition of shaping her I am still learning but gives me immense pleasure when done. My grandmother tells me that: when you shape her you think happy-be happy-feel happy as she reflects the maker.
On another note, I had to shape her four times yesterday, I live in a all boys household then you know what would have happened. My curious buddies played with her like they play with their mommy. Mommy is forgiving so is our Devi.
Blessings and wishes be showered on you all by Devi.
