Lakshmi (2)


in Hindu mythology, was the goddess of beauty and loveliness, the wife of Vishnu, generated from the foam of the sea, similar to Venus Anadvomene of the Greeks. She is also the goddess of plenty, and as such is called Sri or Shiri. She is also the goddess of felicity, and thus identical with Mangola Dewta. She often serves poets as an ideal of womanly beauty.
