As we all know that Mahaganapaty is described as having a large belly.In fact one of His many names is "LambaJathara" or "Mahodara" literally meaning one having a big belly.
But in the Mahalakshmi Ashtakam Mahalakshmi too is addressed by the same name viz:Mahodara.
Quoting the relevant portion(stanza 6) from here:
Sthula Suksma Maharoudre Mahasakthi Mahodare
Mahapapa hare Devi Mahalakshmi Namostute
In that website the translator said big belly is to be taken as the symbol of prosperity.
I want to know what other symbolisms/interpretations might be there behind calling Mahalakshmi "Mahodare"?.
Also, is Mahalaksmi mentioned anywhere in the Vedas as having a large belly?
I could not find anything of that sort in the Sri Suktam.
