Sri Laxshmi -- Goddess of Abundance and Prosperity.Depicted seated upon or holding the lotus, symbol of spiritual purity, fertility and vegetative growth, the goddess Sri (Laxshmi) is venerated, like Ganesh, for her auspicious nature.
She carries a coffer, and gold coins shower from her hand, and she represents the supreme divine principle which pervades all creation with vitality and consciousness.
Actively venerated by nearly 1 billion Hindus, Laxshmi is the modern face of the ancient Great Mother Goddess; stalks of grain surrounding her head connote a rich harvest.
