Lakshmi, Krishna's Shakti.  Goddess of wealth, spiritual prosperity, and the embodiment of beauty.  She is described as bestowing coins of prosperity and flanked by elephants signifying her royal power. The lotus symbolizes the fertile growth of organic life, as the world is continually reborn on a lotus growing out of Vishnu's navel.
