It is a hymn to Sanskrit composed by A.D. Adi Sankara. He began singing twenty-one slokas in praise of the goddess Mahalakshmi and prayed to her to bless poor women, drive out their poverty and grant them wealth.

The front door of her house was open, and when she reached Swamiji, she reached out and dropped one of the Amlaka fruits, the only fruit available in the house, into the hands of Sri Sankaracharya. Sunkaraya accepted the answer and said to the Lady: “Because of the good deeds of her previous birth and the birth of her kind heart to the poor, if you give him a little Amla fruit, it will be enough to bless you with prosperity. The 21 verses of the Kanakadhara Stotram have become famous and are still read by devout Hindus for the benefit of the people.

Kanak dhara puja should please and invoke the blessing of the goddess Laxmi (Maa), the goddess of wealth, by reciting the Kanak Dhara Stotram’s mantra (chantsthu stotras) of Sankaracarya: “Laxmi is holy, famous and popular and is called Kanakadharas” stotra. “. Goddess Lakshmi was so pleased that she showered the House of Ladies with gooseberries of pure gold.

The Kanakadhara stotram is sung three or five times to invoke the goddess for wealth and prosperity and to give happiness and prosperity. The Holy Sankaraya sings hymns of praise to Mahalakshmi by singing Kanagadhara stotra for the well-being of those who have suffered their past karma and suffered from poverty. When Sanakaracharya sang this stotram, the goddess Lakshmi poured golden Amla fruits (rain) in front of the poor women’s huts.

Rules for Sri Kanakadhara Stotram Recitation

In the Sanatana Dharma, a stotram is a song of praise for Devi, Vishnu and Shiva. The greeting is one that brings with it the opulence of the whole world and showers it with wealth with a divine gaze. Every morning I think of Wrire Kanakadhara Stotram Akshaya Trithiyai as a gift to my Sai friends.

A stotram is the Sanskrit word for a hymn, praise, praise, praise or a series of melodies. Chant Kanakadhara Stotram on Friday morning or evening of the full moon day, when the alignment of the stars and planets is considered auspicious for the day. The greeting to Mother Lakshmi is one of the faces of the Lotus in full bloom.

Greetings to Mother Lakshmi, who at a glance is accorded the sublime position of the King of the Three Worlds (Indra). Greetings to you, a nurturing goddess of abundance and beloved Purushottama.

Perform puja rituals for immense wealth and debt reduction. Adjust Sri Laxmi Suktam Kanakdhara Stotram for debt, Vimochan Mangal Graha Stotam Puja Mantra and Japa Yajna for auspicious and meritorious Puja. Greetings to Our Lady from all three worlds.
