Honestly, everyone wants to be rich and happy. Not necessary, happiness is always associated with wealth, property and riches. But let’s be frank, money doesn’t hurt at all as it always comes of use in both good and bad times. Money is security. It makes you financially secure and independent.
It’s easy to build a house, but very difficult to make a home out of it. A household needs to be a happy and peaceful one to be called a home.
As per the Shiva Purana, there are ways to maintain a happy home. If one wants Goddess Laxmi, the Goddess of Wealth to reside in his house, then he (the head of the family) as well as his wife (the lady of the house) have to perform some important tasks daily. Here’s a look at 5 such simple tasks to acquire wealth and money. Read on –
1. Feed birds and provide them water as well
If you want to banish all your sorrows, then make sure that the first thing the head of the family does every morning is feeds birds and provides them water. These birds will take upon themselves many diseases of the house. Such are their magical powers.
2. The 1st roti made, should be kept aside for the cow
The cow is considered sacred in the Hindu religion. The chief lady of the family used to keep aside the 1st roti she used to make, both in the morning and in the evening, in the olden days. But nowadays, this practice doesn’t take place. People have forgotten to associate food with God. If a woman thinks about God while cooking, she will get all good thoughts and hence, the food will be delicious. If cows are fed the 1st roti made daily every morning and evening, then Goddess Laxmi never leaves that household.
3. Ensure daily Gita and Ramayana Paath in the house
Everyday, for 1 or 2 hours, there should be Gita and Ramayana Paath. That’s when Lord Krishna and Lord Rama both come inside the house. Half the diseases in the house are removed. Goddess Laxmi also enters the house.
4. Look after your parents
Everyone seems to have forgotten his or her parents, while running after the materialistic shadow of money. If you do not take good care of your mother and father, Goddess Laxmi will be annoyed and will never enter your abode. Remember, always spare some time for your family.
5. There should be Aarti in your Home Mandir
If you want to stay blessed by Goddess Laxmi, then make sure that you have a Mandir or a Puja Ghar in your house, where Diyas are lit and Aarti takes place everyday. Everyone in the family should take part in the Aarti for sure. This brings wealth, happiness and peace in the house.
So, here were the 5 easy tasks which you must do everyday to usher in wealth, peace, joy and good fortune. All these tasks used to take place in tthe olden era in every household. It was not the olden, but the golden era of India. However, thanks to the western influences, we seem to have either forgotten these things, or we’re far too busy running after fame and money, or we just don’t care or believe in them. This is very wrong. No doubt, today’s households mostly show off happiness rather than actually being happy. There always seem to be problems and hurdles.
Always remember, if you can work hard in your office or for your business to earn money and gain wealth, then you can surely also take time out for these 5 simple tasks to make Goddess Laxmi happy and stay blessed.
