    धन सबकी किस्मत में है। सबके लिये विष्णु-लक्ष्मी जी, संपत्ति से भरी तिजोरी भेजते हैं। बस उस तिजोरी की चाबी उनके पास होती है। धनी बनने के लिए इसी तिजोरी की चाबी को खोजना है। चाबी कैसे मिलेगी यह बड़ा सवाल है। तो इसके लिए करने होंगे लक्ष्मी जी के उपाय। वैसे भी महालक्ष्मी व्रत 29 August and end on 12 September से शुरू होंगे। लक्ष्मी जी आपके घर में, उत्तर दिशा से आयेंगी। तो धन संपत्ति पाने के लिये, लक्ष्मी जी को उत्तर दिशा से पुकारें। 16 दिन लक्ष्मी की आराधना से जन्म-जन्म की कंगाली दूर होगी। Amit Shah My Paypal email is pulkit5225@rediffmail.com

  4. nice post! Chanting Lakshmi Stotram daily once has changed my entire life. It gives us the strength we believe in . Particularly during the festival of Diwali I used to visit near by Goddess Lakshmi temple and offer my prayers. I also used to draw the beautiful sankranti muggulu with chukkalu which are also called sankranthi muggulu designs in Telugu in front of our homes to welcome Mata Lakshmi devi.
