IIt is a belief to please Goddess Lakshmi in various ways for wealth. However, Lakshmi chooses the devotees who are not just hardworking, but also powerful.Behind this fact there is a story no one knows. why Goddess Lakshmi chose Lord Vishnu only to be her husband…When the demons and Gods did Samudra Manthan, 14 gems came out of the ocean. One of the 14 gems was Goddess Lakshmi. The moment Lakshmi came out, both demons and gods tried their best to win her.The first Lakshmi saw were some saints and rishis. They stood up and requested Lakshmi to come to them. However, Lakshmi denied to go to them saying that even though the saints are nice, they have a big ego that they are a little above humans as they know the secret to reach the gods. Then the Gods stood and asked her to come to them. But Lakshmi again denied by saying that you have become gods by virtue and she only goes to those who are hardworking and do labour. Lakshmi then saw one man who was not looking at her at all, when everybody else were in a line to win her. So, she went up to that man. That man was nobody else but Lord Vishnu who was lying down peacefully. Lakshmi went to him and shook his legs. He asked her, what is the matter? She replied that she wants to marry him. Vishnu accepted. Lakshmi knew that he would protect her. Since then Lakshmi and Narayan became one. Lord Vishnu is the guardian of this Earth and hence he is too are hard-working and at the same time extremely powerful too.
