"RATI" IS THE HINDU GODDESS OF LOVE, PASSION, DESIRE, AND PLEASURE; HER NAME MEANS SEXUAL DELIGHT, AND HER PASSION INSPIRING POWERS SHARE SIMILARITIES TO THE ROMAN GODDESS OF LOVE, "VENUS", BUT UNLIKE "VENUS, RATI "IS NOT ALWAYS DEPICTED AS THE BEAUTIFUL, PERFECTLY SHAPED WOMAN. INDEED, SHE IS OFTEN SHOWN AS A HEAVILY PREGNANT WOMAN.

SHE IS THE FEMALE COUNTERPART OF "KAMADEVA", THE GOD OF LOVE AND DESIRE; SOME COMPARE HIM TO "CUPID." SHE IS THE DAUGHTER OF THE SUN GOD, "DAKSHA, "YET, EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS BORN FROM THE ELEMENT OF FIRE," RATI "IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE ELEMENT OF WATER AND IS OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH THE WATER GODDESSES KNOWN AS THE" APSARAS, "THE NYMPHS OF PARADISE", "WHO ARE RENOWNED FOR THEIR BEWITCHING, SHAPESHIFTING POWERS. IN FACT, IT IS BELIEVED THAT THEY POSSESSED THE POWERS TO SHAPE SHIFT INTO ALMOST ANYTHING THEIR HEART, OR THAT OF THEIR COMPANIONS, DESIRED.

THE "ASPARAS" FREQUENTLY TAKE ON THE APPEARANCE OF SEDUCTIVE WOMAN WITH LONG, DARK HAIR. THEY ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO RESIST WITH THEIR IRRESISTIBLE BEAUTY AND SEDUCTIVE TALENTS AND CAN TEMPT THE CELIBATE TO GIVE UP THEIR SOLITARY WAYS. SOME BELIEVE THESE ENCHANTRESSES SERVE AS ATTENDANTS TO "KAMADEVA. "
