Please Enter My Giveaway!


Well, I said I would have my first giveaway when my Followers List broke 100 and now that magical event has occurred! Thank you, everyone who is following along with my blog, or who has done so in the past. I'm very appreciative of your interest in my blatherings.

Lakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of Abundance. Seated on a sacred lotus, She is always dressed in red and adorned with valuable jewellry. An endless stream of gold coins pours from her open hand. Lakshmi brings not only financial abundance, but also all the good things money can't buy -- love, friendship, good health, wonderful children, etc. Needless to say, She is a popular Goddess.

Enter my giveaway for a chance to win the pictured statue of the Goddess Lakshmi! Six inches high, She was made in India of sacred Ganges clay and is beautifully hand-painted. I obtained Her from Sacred Source, a great on-line shop that sells all kinds of Divine statues and jewellry. Also included in the giveaway are two mesh packages of lovely chocolate gold coins to represent Her blessings of prosperity. Plus a honkin' big chocolate Canadian coin (or possibly an Olympic gold medal . . . it's hard to tell).

The rules for entering the contest are straightforward:

1. You must be an official Follower to enter. Old, new or just signed up in order to enter the contest, it's all good. And it doesn't matter where you're from in the world, I'll mail it anywhere!

2. In addition to being a Follower, you must leave me a comment on this post that you want to enter the contest.

3. One entry per person (leaving 10 comments will still only result in 1 entry!)

4. Entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. (Mountain Daylight Time) on Wednesday, March 24, 2010.

5. The draw will be made on Thursday, March 25 and the results posted here on Friday, March 26.

Good luck! May Lakshmi smile upon you!

Hey Debra (I am not entering as I don't follow blogs much... just have my favourites list on my computer list ox)... but wanted to say thanks so much for being there for me over the past weeks. I felt each of my blogging friends with me on Thursday and know that I can get through whatever the results are next Friday. sending blessings from here in Woodford xo

I came over from Donna B's blog, and had quite a pleasant surprise when I saw a picture of Lakshmi here.

I am from India, and she's a part of my cultural heritage that I take for granted. But it is always pleasant to see her popping up at unexpected places.

Sending her back to India wouldn't make much sense, would it? But chocolate coins are always welcome.

Suzie said...

First, a big congratulations on reaching the grand 100 mark! That is quite an accomplishment!
And second, what a unique and special giveaway you've chosen!
If Lakshmi decides that she want to come and live in my home, she will be very welcome, and given a place of honor! The chocolate will be very welcome, as well, although with their symbolism, I'm not sure that they would meet their demise.
May you reach your next hundred with lightning speed!

Hi Debra...abundance in all of the above sounds good to me (particularly chocolate):) although love and money are good too.

Thalia Took said...

Oh I could definitely use some Lakshmi energy right about now!

Rose - The Center of My Self said...

Congratulations on hitting 100! woo hoo! Doesn't is make your heart shine with happiness knowing that there are those who derive joy from your writings and thoughts? Yes, indeed, we do!

Lakshami, the Goddess of Abundance. My life is so abundant I don't know if more can fit into it, but that's for the Universe to determine, I guess.

I think that I shall clear a space on my altar for Lakshmi ... or for whatever will manifest for that space if someone else wins the giveaway.

Namaste
