O Fire invoke for me that Lakshmi

Who shines like the splendour of the Moon in all the worlds

Whose smile is the bliss of transcendental beauty

Lakshmi, dwell in my family, dwell on this earth

And always remove my pain

(adapted from the Rig Vedic hymn to Lakshmi circa 1500 BCE)

Indian temple dance presented in the traditions of old temple performances—intimate, and inviting deep connection between performer and audience.

Projections, music, dance, narrative and philosophy combine in this rich evocation of one of the most popular of Indian goddesses.

With visuals by Geoffrey Dunn
