Sita [1]

in Hindu mythology, was an avatar of the goddess Lakshmi, in which she emerged from the blood exacted as a tribute from holy devotees who had nothing else, by the tyrant of Lanka. Sita was made the consort of Rama or Vishnu. According to others, she was the daughter of Janaka, a king of Mithila. The word means literally "furrow," as she was not born in the usual sense of this word, but arose from a furrow when her father was ploughing the ground, whence she is also called Parthivi (from pr'thivi, "the earth").
