Dhanya Lakshmi is the Goddess of harvest and blesses with abundance and success in harvest. She is the giver of food grains to everyone in the earth and merges with everyone in the creation. No one on earth can exist without her blessings.

It is said that once Lord Krishna at the insistence of his brother Balarama kept Dhanya Lakshmi out of his place as she mingled with everyone, rich or poor, good or bad. But later realised his mistake as he had no food to eat, Then he prayed for her blessings.

Dhanya Lakshmi Stotra:

Aikali kalmasha nashini kamini vaidika rupini veda maye

ksheera samudbhava mangala rupini mantra nivasini mantranute

mangala dayini ambuja vasini devaganarchita padayute

jaya jaya he madhusudhana kamini dhanya lakshmi paripalaya mam


The one who destroys bad effects of kali yuga and is most desirable god who is personification of vedas. One who arose out of the milk and the form of all that is good and lives in sacred chants and lotus flower and whose feet is worshipped by the devas, Victory to Dhanya lakshmi, the darling of the killer of madhu, Please protect me forever.
