The Goddess of Prosperity, Lakshmi, inspires much devotion. There are many accounts of her creation, but the most popular is one found in the Rāmāyanā (though there are older accounts in both the Vedas and Purānas). She is said to have wafted out of the ocean of milk, which was churned by both the devas (Gods) and the rākshasās (demons) in a quest to obtain amrita, the nectar of immortality. Since her appearance, she has captured the hearts of Hindus and become a central figure in Hindu lore.She is often depicted sitting upon a lotus and adorned with lotus at her hands and feet. Many of her names, Padmā, Kamalā, Ambujā, refer to the lotus. The lotus has powerful symbolism in Hinduism. While its roots are in the mud, its stalk rises clearly through the murky water, with its petals blossoming above, untouched by the mud. It is a symbol of rising above the material world through divinity, of being good in the midst of negative influences. Like the lotus, as the Goddess of Prosperity, Lakshmi shows us how to transcend material wealth for spiritual progress. The lotus is also a symbol for purity, fertility, and beauty. She is often shown with four hands, which are meant to represent the four goals of life: kāma, artha, dharma, and moksha. These are said to also symbolize the four Vedas. She wears a red sāri with gold thread, again representing wealth, beauty, and fertility. Coins rain down from her palms, as she smiles blissfully. There are often elephants in the background, who represent power and hard work.
Her ubiquity is demonstrated clearly by the widespread use of the symbol Śri, which represents her and material prosperity. She is seen as the wife of Vishnu, the Preserver, and her avatars accompany many of his (like Sita with Rama and Rukmini with Krishna).
