Comments for KAMALA:

This name is known as 'peace'. The great Goddess Kamala is known as the bestower of peace. Perhaps the meaning 'red' comes from the red Hindu bindi mark on forehead (third-eye) between the eyebrows, which signifies peace and tranqulity for mortals. Some people say that 'Kamala' means lotus, but lotus is known as 'Padme', 'Padmini', 'Kumudini' (night lotus), and 'Alapadme' (full lotus). So the colour red, the lotus, and peace would all be aspects of a Goddess, so all would apply, yet there is room for various interpretations which is the beauty of Sanskrit words.
