Sītā

Sītā (Skt., ‘furrow’). Consort of Rāma and considered therefore to be an incarnation of the Goddess Lakṣmī. She is the heroine of the epic poem Rāmāyaṇa. She was born as a result of her father's prayers, and is said to have sprung from a furrow ploughed by him; she is thus closely associated with the ‘mother-earth’ concept and is the Vedic patron of agriculture.
