The list of Dashavatara varies across sects and regions. The standard list is as follows: Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, Vamana, Parashurama, Rama, Krishna, Buddha, and Kalki. Sometimes, Krishna replaces Vishnu as the source of all avatars and Balarama takes Krishna's place in the list.

Lakshmi is Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity. She is wife and active energy of God Vishnu, who is Supreme God in Vaishnavism. Her four hands represent the four goals of human life considered important to the Hindu way of life – dharma, kāma, artha, and moksha. Representations of Lakshmi are also found in Jain monuments. In Buddhist sects of Tibet, Nepal and southeast Asia, goddess Vasudhara mirrors the characteristics and attributes of the Hindu goddess Lakshmi with minor iconographic differences. Lakshmi is also called Sri or Thirumagal because she is endowed with six auspicious and divine strength even to Vishnu. When Vishnu descended on Earth as the avatars Rama and Krishna, Lakshmi descended as his respective consorts: Sita(Rama's wife) and Rukmini(Krishna's wife). In the ancient scriptures of India, all women are declared to be embodiments of Lakshmi.The marriage and relationship between Lakshmi and Vishnu as wife and husband, states Patricia Monaghan, is the paradigm for rituals and ceremonies for the bride and groom in Hindu weddings.
