Naga Kanya, also known as Nag Kanya or Naag Kanya. She is the guardian of treasures, benevolent goddess of the three realms. In Hindu mythology, Nagas are serpentine spirits who reside in the underworld, protecting and offering the teachings of the Mother Goddess. They are said to guard all esoteric and mystical teachings. And they offer protection and gifts to the seeker.
Amongst the snake guardian elementals, Naga Kanya is Queen. She stands out as a well-loved spiritual ally in the Eastern traditions of India, Nepal, and parts of China. Most stories connect Naga Kanya with Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of good fortune and abundance. Nag Kanya is also said to be a companion or ally of Vishnu — unlike the other Nagas, who fear being eaten by Garuda, Vishnu’s mythical bird mount. In the Buddhist traditions, Nag Kanya is regarded as a Tantric goddess and protector of Dharma.
