Sita - An Incarnation of Mahalakshmi


Sita was an incarnation of Mahalakshmi. She was a child of the earth and was found by king Janaka of the Videha kingdom, while plowing the ground to prepare for a sacrifice. She was adopted by the king as her daughter. Rama, the Kosala prince who was an incarnation of Vishnu, married her after stringing the mighty bow of Lord Shiva, as stipulated by her father.

She accompanied her husband into exile and was abducted by Ravana, when Rama was away. After a great battle, Rama killed Ravana and rescued his wife.
