Mata Lakshmi and the Mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan

Goddess Laxmi


Srinivasa Ramanujan (22 December 1887 – 26 April 1920) was an internationally renowned mathematician who with near zero formal training in mathematics made astounding contributions in the field of number theory, infinite series, and continued fractions. His birthday is celebrated as the National Mathematics Day in India.

When Ramanujan was asked about the brilliance of the his equations by British mathematician GH Hardy, Ramanujan credited his mathematical gift to Mahalakshmi-Namgiri whose consort Lord Narasimha appeared to him in his dreams. He has been quoted as saying: "While asleep, I had an unusual experience. There was a red screen formed by flowing blood, as it were. I was observing it. Suddenly a hand began to write on the screen. I became all attention. That hand wrote a number of elliptic integrals. They stuck to my mind. As soon as I woke up, I committed them to writing."

May Mata Namagiri along with her consort Lord Narasimha bless us with intelligence,  discrimination and give us refuge in their lotus feet that are the sole refuge in this universe ruled by maya! 

Jai Mata Namagiri! Jai Narasmiha Dev!
