The Divine Mother in her manifestation as Lakshmi is the shakti of Vishnu. Lakshmi is known in earlier Eastern texts as Sri, which means “splendor,” “beauty,” “prosperity,” “wealth.”
Vishnu holds the office of Preserver in the Hindu Trinity. The Preserver is parallel to the principle of the Son in the Western Trinity. As the Son, Vishnu embodies Cosmic Christ wisdom. He is also the mediator, or bridge, between the human consciousness and Brahman, Absolute Reality.
