Origin of Alakshmi
It is mentioned in the Bhagwat Mahapuran that a total of 14 gems came out in the churning of the ocean, one of which was Goddess Lakshmi, who was blessed by Shri Hari. But before her, Mother Alakshmi had emerged from the churning of the ocean, it is said that when Alakshmi came out of the churning of the ocean, she had an urn full of wine, then on the wish of the demons, Lord Vishnu asked Alakshmi to join the Asura Paksha. granted permission. That is why he is not in the 14 gems. Since Mata Alakshmi originated from the same place i.e. churning of the ocean, that is why both are considered as sisters. In the Bhagwat Mahapuran, there is a mention of Mother Alakshmi, the elder sister of Goddess Lakshmi. It is believed that where Goddess Alakshmi resides, inauspicious events, sins, laziness, poverty, misery and diseases persist continuously, hence she is considered to be the goddess of misfortune.
Difference between Lakshmi and Alakshmi
Alakshmi is the exact opposite of Maa Lakshmi. Mother Lakshmi brings wealth and splendor, while Alakshmi brings poverty. That is why people do all the worship-rituals to get Lakshmi, while making every effort to avoid Alakshmi. Maa Lakshmi loves sweets, while Alakshmi likes sour and bitter things. This is the reason why sweets are kept inside the house, while lemon and green chillies are hung outside the house. Being the sister of Maa Lakshmi, both Lakshmi and Alakshmi are accepted, but only Maa Lakshmi is welcomed. There are two forms of Lakshmi, one is Bhudevi and the other is Sridevi. Bhudevi is the goddess of earth and Sridevi is the goddess of heaven. Bhudevi showers gold and food, while Sridevi bestows power, prosperity and identity.
