Sri Arogya Lakshmi
Bestower of good health - AROGYA LAKSHMI
A tavil (a percussion instrument) vidwan came to the peedam and commented, "I would really like to see Thaayaar here. Kamakshi tells me this." Sri Muralidhara Swamigal responded, "Who will pay for it?" The vidwan replied, "I will."Swamigal was amazed, but said, "So be it."
The sthapathi was called and an idol ordered. Swamigal decided to call Her Arogya Lakshmi, and as requested by the vidwan, he conducted a kalyana utsavam at her consecration.
Here, Arogya Lakshmi is representative of three roles; as the spouse of Dr Danvantri, as a nurturing, listening, caring Mother Goddess; and as a Lady Doctor.
For the first time, Arogya Lakshmi has been consecrated with an individual space to Herself. She has been depicted in the same healing concept as Lord Danvantri. She adorns a stethoscope and watch as well.
