Vaishnavi (Sanskrit: वैष्णवी, IAST: Vaishṇavī) is a Hindu goddess and is also a Matrika goddess.[1]

She is the feminine form and is considered as the shakti of Vishnu. According to the "Durgāpūjātattva" (a Sanskrit ritual manual), she is one of the 64 goddesses to be worshipped during the Āvaraṇapūjā (“Worship of the Circuit of Goddesses”).[2]
