The consort of Lord Vishnu, Goddess Lakshmi is the presiding deity of wealth and knowledge. She is worshipped in eight forms like Vidya Lakshmi, Santana Lakshmi, Dhana Lakshmi, Soubhagya Lakshmi, Dhairya Lakshmi, Vijaya Lakshmi, Adi Lakshmi and Dhanya Lakshmi.
As per the puranas, Goddess Lakshmi emerged from the ocean of milk. Devas and asuras wanted to achieve immortality. They were suggested to obtain nectar or amrita by churning the ocean of milk. Devas and asuras requested Mount Mandhara to be the churning rod and asked serpent Vasuki to be the Churning rope. They pleaded Lord Vishnu to bear Mount Mandhara on his back. Lord Vishnu obliged and he took the form of a tortoise known as kurma and helped devas and asuras. While churning, several celestial objects like Iravata, The mighty elephant, Kalpavruksha, the celestial tree, Goddess Lakshmi, Moon, Lord Dhanvantari, Goddess Jyeshta emerged from the ocean.
