In myth, Lakshmi, goddess of #abundance was born from the ocean of milk that the gods had churned for 1000 years. That “milk” is the sweetness of this world. From that ocean of being, all Fortune arises–hence Lakshmi arises.
Because people #desire and take pleasure in #fortune, she is also the Goddess of desire and pleasure, hence the #Tantrik goddess who is parallel to Lakshmi is called Kamakhya (a name whose root we know from Kama Sutra, a manual on the pursuit of desires).
We often find her depicted with four arms, which are symbolic of her fertility and power generally and specifically they are representative of the four aims of life: pleasure (kama), social responsibility (dharma), vocation (artha), and ultimate liberation (moksha). She holds #lotuses, symbols of the world’s #fertility.
