Goddess Lakshmi is called Shri, the feminine energy of the Supreme Being. She is the Goddess of wealth and prosperity. Worshipping her would attract good fortune, abundance into one`s life.

Shri, Goddess of Wealth

Goddess Lakshmi bestows 16 types of wealth: Fame, knowledge, courage and strength, victory, good children, valour, gold, gems and other valuables, grains, happiness, intelligence, beauty, higher aim, higher thinking, morality, good health and long life.

navaratri significance

Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped in all Hindu households. The festive month of October is Lakshmi`s special month. Fridays are considered auspicious to worship the Goddess. Three days of Navratri - 4th,5th, 6th days - are highly meritorious to worship the Goddess and invite the wealth energies into one`s life.

Ways to Attract Goddess Lakshmi

Recite Sri Sukta

Keep a picture or an idol of Goddess Lakshmi in the prayer room. Pray to her with deep sincerity. Recite Sri Sukta for 30 days and life will change. It is a composition of 15 verses and all desires are fulfilled by her mercy on its holy recitation.


Chanting of Lakshmi Gayathri

Chant the Lakshmi Gayathri mantra for 108 times everyday

|| Om Mahalakshmyaye Vidmahe
Vishnupriyaye Dhimahi
Tanno Lakshmth Prachodayath||

Lotus Seed Mala

Use Lotus seed mala or rosary for reciting the mantra. It is called Kamal Gatta mala. To get rid of poverty and have material gain this bead is used for daily worship as this pleases the Goddess immensely.

Use of ghee lamps

Light two ghee lamps every day with offerings of coconut, lotus flowers and kheer.

Lotus stem wick

Every Friday, light an earthen lamp of ghee, using nine wicks of lotus stem. It attracts highly positive wealth vibrations and grants all kinds of material success.

Sea Shells or cowries

Place cowries or sea shells in the place of worship to attract highly positive energies into the household.

Sri Lakshmi Conch or Shankh

  • Place a right handed conch shell or Dakshinavarti conch shell at home for worship. It is also called Sri Lakshmi Shankh .Blessings of Lakshmi flow out from the conch. Keeping the conch at home removes all negative vibrations surrounding the house. By its placement, Goddess Lakshmi removes sorrows and gives intelligence, success and worldly freedom.
  • The shell should be cleaned and placed on a cloth of color – white or yellow or red. Sometimes it is placed on a silver or clay pot. Water is collected in the conch shell and sprinkled during pooja.
  • Keeping this at home attracts wealth and prosperity and is closely associated with God Kubera.

Lakshmi Dwadasa Stotra

Chant Lakshmi Dwadasa Stotra 12 times for 12 days to get free from debts, financial burdens. This stotra is very dear to Vishnu`s consort, Lakshmi.

Praying to Tulsi

Another way to please Goddess Lakshmi is by lighting a lamp and praying to tulsi plant. All the Gods reside in the place where a tulsi plant is grown. Fragrant agarbattis or incense can be lit to fill the atmosphere with pleasant vibrations. All wishes get fulfilled by worshipping tulsi and immense merit is accrued by paying obeisance to her.

Bamboo Flute

Keep a bamboo flute tied with a silken cloth at home for peace and harmony. Flute is dear to Lord Krishna and Lakshmi is pleased when Lord Krishna (an incarnation of Vishnu) is pleased. It must be placed in the prayer altar for its auspicious vibrations that help promote unity of family and continuous flow of good luck into one`s life.

Feed Cow

On Fridays, feed a cow with sweetened white rice to attract the grace of Mahalakshmi. All obstacles are removed and sins are destroyed. Immense wealth is obtained when cows are fed well.

Footprints of Lakshmi

Draw the footprints of Lakshmi by using raw rice flour in the pooja room to welcome her into the house.

Drawing the auspicious footprint of Lakshmi will invite the presence of Vishnu too. Both Lakshmi and Vishnu are inseparable. Their blessings will relieve one of all sins, curses and grant eternal blessings of good conduct, right living, virtues and abundance. Peace and wellbeing is assured.
