Auspicious
吉祥天 (Skt Shrimahadevior Mahashri; Jpn Kichijo-ten)

    Originally a goddess of Indian mythology named Lakshmi, later incorporated into Buddhism. Auspicious is known as the goddess of fortune and beauty, and is said to bestow fortune and benefit on living beings. In Japan, prayers for peace and agricultural fertility were offered to the goddess. Some sources regard her as a daughter of the Mother of Demon Children and the wife of Vaishravana, one of the four heavenly kings.
