One of my favorites:
Lakshmi: This goddess is the bomb-diggity because she be the goddess of Beauty and Good Fortune.
She was born of the churning of the ocean.
How fancy eh?
If only Western religion could be so colorful with its myths. Below are some pictures I googled of her. They all look very similar. You can compare it to the Western depiction of Jesus. What, symbolically, is Lakshmi saying by standing in this pose? What is Jesus Christ trying to say?
