Bhuma Devi (Bhumi Devi or Bhu Devi) (Sanskrit: "The goddess who is the earth") is a Hindu earth goddess and the divine wife of Varaha, an Avatar of Vishnu. She is also considered one of the two divine wives of Vishnu himself along with Lakshmi; accordingly, Bhudevi and related goddesses representing or personifying the earth often accompany incarnations of Vishnu. She is also known by the names Bhumi, Bhudevi, or Bhuma Devi, as well as the epithets Dhra, Dharti, Dhrithri, all of which refer to her sustaining beneficence as "that which holds everything."
