Brėkšta (also spelled Brekszta or Breksta) is a goddess of dusk and dreams who keeps watch over the world from sundown to sunrise. It’s been suggested that she might be an aspect of Vakarinė, the Evening Star.
Amaterasu-ōmikami (天照大神) is a goddess of the sun. Along with her brothers Susanowa the storm god and Tsuki-yomi the moon god, she is tasked with the governing of the Universe; her responsibility is to bring light to the world and thus ensure rice fields’ fertility. It is said that the Japanese imperial family are descendants of Amaterasu.

She is the wife of Vishnu and is usually depicted sitting or standing on a fully bloomed lotus, holding a lotus flower in one of her four hands as a symbol of beauty, purity, and fertility. She is believed to bring good luck to all who worship her.
