Lakkhī

1. Lakkhī.– The Pāḷi equivalent of Laksmī, goddess of beauty and fortune.

The name is found usually only in later works, e.g., Cv.lxxii.101; lxxvi.233; J.ii.413; iii.306 (explained as being equal to paññā); v.113; the word Lacchī, however, probably equivalent to Lakkhī (1), is found in Thig.vs.419, but the passage is obscure. See Sisters 159, n.2.

2. Lakkhī.– Daughter of Dhataraṭṭha. She is generally called Siri. For her story see the Sirikāḷakaṇṇi Jātaka.
