Lakshmi is the mother goddess, and the consort of Vishnu. She is the patron of wealth (both material and spiritual), prosperity, good fortune and is the embodiment of beauty and grace. In this form, she is bestowing gold coins of prosperity and the elephants flanking her represent her royal power.
Yashoda feeds Bal Krsna. Within bhaktimarg we become greater than god in the sense we bind him with our love, we become the care takers for god, we feed him and nurture the Lord in His childlike form. Birajo hari, jamajo laalji thaal.
