    Alakshmi ("not Lakshmi") is the opposite of Lakshmi. She is everything Lakshmi is not. They cannot and do not remain in the same place.

    There is no scientific basis for the existence in reality of anti-god or anti-goddess. All gods and goddesses must exit in the guna conscioiusness triad of sattvic, rajasic and tamasic triangular entity. So if there is a fearsome aspect to a god or goddess it can only exist on its own as a highly tamasic deity.

    My reasoning is that if God is the Creator and Preserver, he would not create an anti God or antigod to destroy what He has created because that would defeat the purpose of Creation quite evidently.

    I think what it is, is a metaphor for opposites. For example, you can't have good fortune and riches (material and spiritual) where there is poverty and misery. Likewise, when you have good fortune and are not poor you're probably not miserable and unhappy. Misfortune and misery cannot exist where there is good fortune and joy. So this morphed into two goddesses of opposite traits.

    I've read the myth that Lakshmi and Saraswati "fight" and cannot be together. The reasoning is that when one has a great deal of wealth, wisdom usually goes out the window, or at the very least, one no longer cares for learning; when one is artistic, one is usually poor. That may have been true 2,500 years ago but I don't think it's true today. Maybe I'll put pictures or statues of Maa Saraswati and Maa Lakshmi together and see what happens. Maybe I'll learn how to invest wisely. :D Seriously, I think it's a matter of one's perspective. Say what you will about Donald Trump, but the man has the knowledge of making money.

    That is a reasonable proposition, my point was there is no need to invent the concept of anti-God (Satan) or anti-god for the lesser gods and goddesses in Hinduism. The satanic concept is Abrahamic in aetiology. In Hinduism we explain everything (bar the Supreme God) on the gunas in Nature.

    In that case, there is no need to manufacture a God too, but for you Krishna is the Paramatman. Hindus have various beliefs and every Hindu should respect the belief of other Hindus. Even atheist Hindus like me must do that. That is the Hindu rule to avoid strife. One may have any personal belief (within the limits).

    There is no need to manufacture something that does not exist: God exists for me.:)

    alakshmi eat meat ,cow
    The Vedic goddess Nirriti is associated with death, decay, bad luck, anger, and need. Hymns emphasize offerings to keep her away. Like Nirriti, Dhumavati is associated with unpromising things and hardship. Jyestha, also an early Hindu goddess, has similarities in iconography with Dhumavati. Like Dhumavati, she is dark, ugly and is associated with the crow. Jyestha is described as being unable to tolerate any auspiciousness. Also like Dhumavati, Jyestha dwells in quarrels, inauspicious places, and has a bad temper.[3] Lakshmana Desika, the commentator on the Saradatilaka-Tantra, identifies Dhumavati with Jyestha.[4] Both Alakshmi, the sister and antithesis of Lakshmi (Shri), the goddess of wealth, luck and beauty, and Dhumavati are described as old, carrying a broom and having a crow banner. Both symbolize hunger, thirst, need, and poverty. 7d1f0092-7b65-473e-9db4-2973da364cd2_1.f3366afa11fa4d38ce53d5fddeb5298b.jpeg

    In Kashmir and South India, Jyeshtha was worshiped in fear to ward of her destructive anger. There is an old temple of Jyeshtha in Srinagar, Kashmir, called Zeethyar facing Dal Lake.
