Siddhilakṣmī (सिद्धिलक्ष्मी) or Siddhalakṣmī is the Goddess associated with Uttarāmnāya, according to Mukundarāja’s Saṃvartārthaprakāśa.—[...] Only the northern, western and upper āmnāyas are extensively functional amongst the Newars, in theory, like other Kaulas, they follow a system of six āmnāyas.
