Lakshmi Rangolis

Kubera kolam

Kubera - "God of wealth"

Kubera is the god of wealth and god's treasurer. Kubera watches over the earth's storehouse of all jewels, gold, silver, and the nine Nidhis (special treasures). We worship him to attain wealth and prosperity. Kubera kolam is drawn in the pooja room to obtain prosperity. Red color flowers are considered auspicious for Kubera.

Aiswarya kolam

There are some special kolams which are only drawn in front of deities in pooja rooms (places of worship). Such kolams have some significance with a particular form of a deity, for instance - the Aiswarya kolam is drawn in the pooja room to obtain prosperity in the form of wealth/monetary gains. Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped for wealth and prosperity.

In the aiswarya kolam, after all the triangular shapes are drawn, it is customary to place coins in all the corners along with some vermillion/turmeric.
