The Goddess of Beauty and Good Fortune
Yin-Yin-Yin-Yang Gates: 16-Skills, 35-Change, 45-The Gatherer, 12-Caution
Material Fortune, Prosperity, Wealth, Opportunity.
Lakshmi embodies the expression of civilization in action. These four gates are in the Throat center; all three manifested channels are represented. Here civil codes are established, determining social protocol governing progress. In distortion, wealth becomes the be-all, end-all obsession.
The 16 Faces of the Godheads are comprised of 16 archetypal themes divided around the wheel, with each archetype having a specific imprint.
