Hinduism - What Is Ashtalakshmi?



Eight distinct manifestations of the goddess Lakshmi, symbolizing her many characteristics as a wealth and prosperity source. 


The eight are often shown as a group, although they may also be seen separately: 


    1. Vijaya ("victory") Lakshmi, 
    2. Jaya ("conquest") Lakshmi, 
    3. Dhana ("wealth") Lakshmi, 
    4. Dhanya ("grain") Lakshmi, 
    5. Gaja ("elephant") Lakshmi, 
    6. Aishvarya ("divine power") Lakshmi, 
    7. Vina (musical instrument) Lakshmi, 
    8. Raja ("royal") Lakshmi.
