Sri Lakshmi is the Goddess of Abundance and Prosperity. Depicted seated upon or holding the lotus, symbol of spiritual purity, fertility and vegetative growth, the goddess Sri Lakshmi 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, Lakshmi is the modern face of the ancient Great Mother Goddess; stalks of grain surrounding her head connote a rich harvest.
