This mantra is also known as the money mantra but its recital is not just limited for monetary gains. We pray to Goddess Laxmi to enlighten our minds with intelligence and comprehensive skills.
The root word that forms the crux of the name Laxmi is ‘lakshya’ which refers to a ‘goal.’ Goddess Laxmi helps us achieve our aim in life and the Laxmi mantra helps us find a way to reach our life goals.
The consort of Lord Vishnu, Goddess Laxmi represents the divine energy that bestows upon her worshippers wealth, prosperity and happiness. It is believed that she relieves her followers from the sorrows pertaining to materialistic deprivation.
Shri Mahalaxmi is known by many names such as Padma, Kalyani, Vaishnavi and so on. She is often depicted with four hands that stand for the four goals that a person must achieve during his/her life - Dharma (to do one’s duty righteously), Artha (to get meaning into your life with the help of prosperity), Kama (the pleasures of the world) and Moksha (the ultimate level of salvation).

There are a few things that must be kept in mind while chanting Laxmi Mantra. The rosaries used for chanting Laxmi mantra are mostly the kamalgata mala or the sphatik mala. It is best to place roses and lotus flowers at the feet of the deity and then start on the process of chanting. The most apt time for Laxmi mantra recital is the Shukla paksha, Purnima tithi, shubh nakshatra, and chandravali.
Goddess Laxmi is also known as the goddess of cleanliness and therefore, it is very important that you thoroughly clean the place where you plan to chant the mantra. It is believed that we invite Goddess Laxmi into our lives and expect her to stay with us. Thus, we cannot offer her a dirty place to reside as this might offend her and this may lead to the wrath of Goddess Laxmi.
