Phouleima is the goddess and the female personification of the agriculture, crops, grains, paddy, rice and wealth in Meitei mythology and religion.[1][2][3][4] She is the lover of Akongjamba, a hero in ancient legend. But fate doesn't permit the lovers to unite. So, Phouoibi and Akongjamba reincarnated in the legend.[5][6][7]

The Meitei people believe that the gleaming black stone is a personification of the goddess, which if kept inside the earthenware pot of the granary, will bring good luck and prosperity, as long as it shines.[8]
