(Hindu Deity)LAKSHMI

Attributes : Coming soon ...

Vahana (Vehicle) : Owl

The radiant Hindu goddess of beauty, good fortune and prosperity.

When the Gods were defeated by Bali and turfed out of their cushy celestial home, the daughter of Sage Bhrigu hid in the ocean of milk. When the ocean was churned she rose to the surface and married Vishnu who had just done a quadruple shift as Kurma, Ajita, Mohini, and himself - infusing everyone involved with energy.

Lakshmi is also known as "Sri" who may be based upon a pre-Aryan fertility Goddess. In this guise she is described as being moist, abounding in dung and, unsuprisingly, perceptible by her odor. She also has a love of elephants but i would really like to think there is no link.

In her incarnations as Sita and Rukmini she married Rama and Krishna who were both avatars of her 'real' husband, Vishnu.
