Shubh Labh

Shubh Labh (Shubh means goodness and Labh means benefit), the most common symbol used at the entrance of houses in India, stands for good luck,wealth and fame.

My share of 'goodness' and 'benefit'.

The 'Swastik' also stands for auspiciousness and comes from the words 'Su' meaning good and 'Asati' meaning to exist.

Shubh Labh is written in the Devanagari script and are believed to be names of the sons of Lord Ganesha. The two lines on either side of the 'swastik' are said to be 'Riddhi' and 'Siddhi', two wives of the Lord.
