Can somebody give me some information on the Goddess Nila?

I read about Her in this question: What scriptures describe Krishna's lover Nappinnai?

Vishnu's other wives, Lakshmi and BhumiDevi are goddesses of Wealth and Earth respectively.

What is Goddess Nila the Goddess of?

  • Para is the highest form of Vishnu found only in Sri Vaikuntha also called Nityavibhuti or Moksha, along with his consorts Sri, Bhumi and Nila and surrounded by Nityasuries, like Ananta, Garuda, Visvaksena and a host of Muktas(liberated souls). The Alvars have sung in great ecstasy about this beatific form of the Lord. The Para form is called Para Vasudeva or Sthula(gross)-Vasudeva with four arms, holding conch, disc, mace and lotus.From this link :srivaishnavan.com/upload1/srivaish3.html. – Rickross Feb 22 '16 at 6:17
