Money, wealth and prosperity

The Devi of wealth is Devi Laxmi the wife of Shri Vishnu. They are the kinetic and potential energies of the Satva gun. All wealth in this universe is granted by Her and is linked to Her. And what is wealth? Physical wealth, emotional wealth and spiritual wealth together is wealth.

The horoscope generated with the ascendant degree as the 1st house will give you an indication of physical wealth. Similarly emotional wealth should be seen from the chart generated by considering the birth Moon as the 1st house. And for spiritual wealth, consider the birth Sun sign as the 1st house. I have written a few posts on wealth earlier. I would consider someone wealthy if he lives a reasonably good life, ie has enough money to live well without excessively exerting himself, and is emotionally and spiritually elevated.

Wealth is a very tricky thing. Devi Laxmi is also called Chanchala चञ्चला and Chapala चपला. These words indicate the inconsistent and tricky nature of wealth. Nimble, moveable, flickering, unsteady, lightning, wind, quick, changeable etc. You might see some houses where the physical wealth remains for a generation and then suddenly disappears. One person earns wealth but his family cannot use it. The children do not inherit the wealth, it gets stolen. Or just one person in the family enjoys the wealth but his wife/ children remain in poverty. The person creates wealth but his children indulge in bad behaviour and the lineage dies out. Someone works hard throughout his lifetime yet remains poor. Someone gets lucky in a lottery ticket and gets rich overnight. It all seems to be quite random.

Essentially you get wealth not by your physical work but by the power of Devi Laxmi who creates Nidhi. Nidhi means accumulation of wealth. And remember wealth is all three, physical, emotional and spiritual. Nidhi can be Satvik, Rajasik or Tamasik and their blends, depending on the source from where you get it. Nidhi includes money, lands, emotional feelings, mantra, pujas etc anything that you ‘accumulate’. One should strive for a purely Satvik Nidhi which remains in the family for several generations and also gives emotional happiness with spiritual progress. Only purely Satvik Nidhi is auspicious, the other types of Nidhi ultimately give pain.

Satvik Nidhi means that there is stable income which increases as per requirement. All family members, wife/ husband, children, siblings, grandparents, etc enjoy this wealth. Everyone is happy, healthy, satisfied, the children study well, there is peace in the family. A portion of this Nidhi is also given to temples or used in public service, eg building water tanks etc. The family members grow spiritually. This Nidhi comes only as a result of Sadhana and it comes automatically. I have mentioned in an earlier post that Shri Sukta is the source of all prosperity. If any of you are doing its puja, by now you must have noticed its results.

Every Nidhi has a yaksha/ yakshini associated with it. Depending on the type of Nidhi in your household, you will also have its associated Yaksha residing with you. All the gold in this world belongs to Yaksh-raaj Kuber, he ‘loans’ it to you and me. And if someone has a significant amount of gold, you can always sense the energy of its accompanying Yaksha in his house. Also conversely if you can sense the Yaksha you can also determine the quality of the Nidhi in the house, ie if it is purely Satvik, Rajasik, Tamasik or mixed.

What Nidhi is residing in your house? Analyse the events occurring in your family. The kind of children being born in your family. The ‘atmosphere’ in your family. The health status of your family members, the interactions. Can you do your pujas easily or not? Also the things you spend money on. If you spend money on the reasonable needs of living your life and on pujas, temples, pilgrimages etc then your wealth is Satvik. But if you spend your money on unnecessary items, addictions, meat, alcohol, gambling, bar dancers, drugs etc, then obviously it is a mixture of the Rajasik and Tamasik Nidhi-s.

The source of your money is important. Sometimes you get money from inauspicious sources. Some of you might find this a bit difficult to believe that if the organization you are working in engages in illegal or immoral activities or if your top boss is an Adharmic person then the salary you get is not Satvik. It will cause problems with no solutions in sight. You will see such examples around you. eg If someone earns enough money yet his life is a mess then his money will 100% be from an Adharmic source. The solution here would be to reject this source and find a Dharmik/ Satvik one. Most of us do not even think much on these lines nor can we reject money. If the source of wealth is Adharmic, there will never be real peace of mind or happiness and the person will not be able to perform Satvik activities like pujas, go for pilgrimages etc. Rajasik and Tamsik Nidhi is in full swing in these modern times.

Try this small experiment if you wish. During this coming Ashwin Nav-ratri, do this small vrat. Intend that you will recite the Shri-Sukta twice a day, after the morning bath and at sunset. And not consume tamasik food items. See if can do this simple thing for just 10 days. Note what thoughts come in your mind after 2-3 days of this. Do you feel happy about your vrat? Do you look forward to every daily recitation with happiness? Or do you feel this to be an impossible thing to continue for 10days? What effect does this simple vrat have on your mind? This will give an indication to the type of Nidhi residing in your house.

Some people claim to do pujas which give instant wealth. And there are pujas where if you please the Yaksha-s they will grant you wealth. But this physical wealth will eventually run out and also give emotional/ spiritual torment. Some pujas bring in wealth of the Rajasic kind. A definite way of identifying Nidhi is that Rajasik Nidhi will increase the ego of the person who holds it. People suddenly puff up with self-importance, wear flashy stuff, buy expensive items as a result of the Rajas dominating over them. And there are ways which will bring in Tamasik Nidhi, here the person’s intellect, ie his ability to differentiate between Dharma/ Adharma is affected. You will find such people indulging in base desires, behaving in morally abhorrent ways and there will be a sense of ‘dullness’ around them. Rajasik and Tamasik wealth eventually create a vicious cycle from which escape is rather difficult.

I felt like writing on Nidhi because of this comment I received. “I am glad I discovered your site while browsing in Google for an astrology article. Your site is a source of abundant treasure. I am thrilled to see it all available for free. I feel blessed to be one of the beneficiary of the truth you have brought to light; mikka nandri nandri (Thanks).”

This was the first time someone commented that it was for ‘free’. It surprised me. Nothing is free in life. I write this blog, spend my time and energy on it. I have a very busy schedule, (I have a family, a full-time high paying job and I need time for my personal pujas) yet I write. I write what I have experienced or know to be correct from my perspective. I pay WordPress so that my readers don’t have to see irritating adverts. I have never charged for readings. Jyotish is a Vidya, it is priceless. Putting a charge on a Vidya causes karmic repercussions.

(My Dad is an engineer, a professional, he worked in high positions. From his teens till his late 40-s, he saw several charts daily, never charged anything. He helped people till our Guru ordered him to stop seeing Jyotish. My Mom was a well-known lawyer, worked in a huge corporation as its Legal Adviser. Yet she gave advice to poor people every day of her life and never charged anything from them.)

Now you, dear reader, who have chanced on my blog, reading the 7 lakh+ words I have written, do you think you are here by chance? You are here because it was your karma to read it as it was mine to write it. It is my experience over several life-times. And you are spending your time and energy reading it, absorbing it. Why? This blog is a purely Satvik Nidhi, essentially my Sat-Guru’s blessings. It is not for free. If you are here, you are here for a reason. What could this reason be? ask yourself.

The sure-shot solution for prosperity

I am getting several messages for readings. I have finished my karmic quota so will not do them anymore. If I were still doing readings, I wouldn’t have started writing this blog! I simply wouldn’t have the time to write. But if there is something which can help understand your horoscope better, I will write on it, in the spirit of explaining the thing.

But for those who have genuine problems the one perfect remedy for all your problems is Shri-Sukta. It is from the Rg- Ved. We think we are unique, but we are all the same, we all have very limited types of problems, health, wealth, relationships, litigations, profession, children, education. All these can be covered easily by this one all-round remedy. You have to do this yourself with the intention and the genuine desire to come out of the problem. Self-pity and expecting that someone else will pull you out of your problem never works. But luckily for us our ancient Rishis have given us so many tools from Jyotish to the Sukta.

This is the link to the perfect text of the Shri-Sukta, the verses/ shlok from 1 to 15 are the Shri Sukta. Verse 16 is the phala-shruti, ie it tells you what you will get if you recite this Sukta. (The remaining verses are Laxmi Sukta, that is a different sukta.) For those who can read and pronounce Sanskrit words, recite it. Will take 2 mins of your time. But most of us cannot read our own mother tongue, the Devbhasha Samskrutam, so here is the Shri sukta recited perfectly by the singer Uma Mohan. (Do buy this same track, here the pronunciation is perfect, there are no mistakes). She follows the Shri Sukta with the Mahalaxmi Gayatri. Very beautiful. You can listen to this if you cannot read. Will take 4 mins of your time.

When to recite or listen to it? Twice a day is ideal, once after you have your bath in the morning and once at evening twilight. If you feel like it you can listen to it on a loop throughout the day, it is an energy boost. Some of my businessmen clients play it on a loop in their shops as it is in itself Prosperity, Shri श्री.

Here you are invoking the power of the highest form of Prosperity श्री to come to you in every way possible. You are requesting Shri to enter your body, mind and soul. It is a very intense and deep intention and always works for your benefit. Highly auspicious in every way possible. ‘Shri’ means the goddess of wealth, Devi Laxmi, the active energy of the Satva-Gun, wealth, beauty, radiance, splendour, welfare, power, grace, shine, success, fortune, process, symbol, might, dignity, etc. All the meanings are extremely positive on all levels.

Shri- Sukta will work for all your problems, try it for 21days with full intention and see for yourself.

Next, if you have typical problems, ie if you know what your exact problem is and what you want. Then you can recite one verse from the Ashta-Laxmi stotra to add specific direction to your Shri-sukta rendition. There are 8 verses in the Ashta-Laxmi stotra, one for each of the following aspects of Devi Laxmi. The Shri-Sukta works well on its own and quite powerfully too, this one verse would be an additional thing if you want to do it. Or you can listen to the entire Stotra. Here is a recitation by the singer Gayatri. She has sung it beautifully, you can listen to the entire stotra on the way to your office if you feel like it, rather than movie songs which have no energy.

  • 1st verse is for Aadi Laxmi – for spiritual progress and moksh
  • 2nd verse is for Dhanya Laxmi – for health, removal of poverty, for getting house/properties, medical emergencies
  • 3rd verse is for Dhairya Laxmi – for courage for facing a particular situation, intelligence, calmness eg before an interview, that flash of inspiration when you are stuck in work, issues in profession,
  • 4th verse is for Gaja Laxmi – this gives sheer power, physical/ emotional/ mental
  • 5th verse is for Santaan Laxmi – for children, for help during conception, pregnancy, delivery and for anything to do with children
  • 6th verse is for Vijay Laxmi – all round successes, eg during litigations, court cases, disputes
  • 7th verse is for Vidya Laxmi – for successes in exams or in learning technical subjects, when you start learning a new topic, to make what you learn work for you
  • 8th verse is for Dhan Laxmi – for money and material assets, prosperity in marriage

This will work for everyone irrespective of anything. The Sukta and the Stotra are both in Sanskrit so have inherent power, they are essentially mantra. These will not cause harm in any way to anyone. But they will not give you what is not yours, ie cannot be used to cheat others or to steal what is rightfully other’s stuff. Do it only if you are convinced of your right and positive intention.

If you want to, in addition, you can keep a small silver moorti of Devi Laxmi in your puja. Or an image. Or if you are more into geometry, an image of the Shri Chakra. At least keep such images as your phone’s wallpaper, rather than something random. It is perfect prosperity. This will help channelise the energies faster into your own self into your own life, rebalancing it.
