The Lotus Goddess, the tenth of the Dasha Maha Vidyas (Ten Great Wisdoms). Her name comes from the Sanskrit word kamala, meaning “lotus.” Kamalatmika can be translated as “she of the lotus.” Kamalatmika is none other than Lakshmi, the Goddess of Prosperity and wife of Vishnu. Of all the Dasha Maha Vidya, Kamalatmika is the best known, most popular, and has the oldest tradition of worship outside the Maha Vidya context. She is the last of the Maha Vidyas, and has almost completely auspicious, beneficial, and desirable qualities.
