    Dhana Lakshmi is depicted in red garments and is adorned with gold jewelry and garland made of flowers. She is a six armed goddess who carries weapons like discus, bow and arrow in three of her hands. She holds conch and water pitcher filled with elixir of life in other two hands. The pitcher is usually decorated with mango leaves and a coconut is placed on its top. Her sixth hand is in abhaya mudra which is the gesture used to dispel fear and provide protection and safety.

    The word ‘Dhana’ means money thus making Dhana Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth...
    left the abode of Vishnu named Vaikunta and decided to reside on earth. She took a humanly form and was born to a rich king. Vishnu found it difficult to live without his wife thus he also took a humanly form and started living on earth as a poor forest dweller. They both met each other on earth and fell in love.

    The forest dweller wanted to marry the rich princess but didn’t have the money to ask for her hand.He then took a huge loan from Lord Kubera. KuberaKuberaKubera
     Kubera is the God of wealth & is known as Dhanpati ...
    didn’t mind giving the loan but the deal was that Vishnu was not allowed to leave the face of earth without repaying the loan and its interest. Vishnu agreed to the deal. The couple got married and soon many years passed but Vishnu was unable to repay the money that he had taken. Vishnu started missing his home and soon realized his mistake. He realized the value for money. He acknowledged the power of wealth and soon Dhana Lakshmi blessed him with money. He became indebted to Dhana Lakshmi and thus also came to be known as Daridra Narayana (one who is in debt). It is still believed that whatever amount of money and gold is offered to Vishnu (in the form of Lord Balaji) by his devotees, is used by him to repay his loan to Kubera.  

    Benefits of Worshipping Dhana Lakshmi

    Money is the basis of living a comfortable life. People who want to excel in business and gain stability in terms of income and money flow, pray to Dhana Lakshmi. Worshippers worship her to achieve and sustain money and other valuable assets like gold, diamonds etc.  It is believed that by worshipping her, a poor man can become rich and if a rich man neglects her and doesn’t pray to her after attaining wealth, then soon he can become poor. Thus it is very important to show immense care and respect towards her.

    She is invoked in various fire sacrifices and prayers that takes place in homes or temples and is asked to help devotees lead a comfortable and contented life with the help of wealth and prosperity. She also teaches the importance and value of money. It should be in balance with one’s needs. Money is like water, excess of which can drown human.
