More about Kanakadhara Stotram in Kannada
Kanakadhara Stotram is a hymn composed in Sanskrit by Adi Sankara. kanakadhara means “stream” (dhara) “golden” (kanaka), and the hymn is called by this name because legend has it that when Adi Sankara recited it, the goddess Lakshmi appeared before him and unleashed a stream of gold .
The hymn was written in the 8th century CE by Adi Sankara, a revered Hindu philosopher and theologian. Sankara took Sanyasa (waiver) at the age of eight.
One day, when he was a young boy, he was in bhiksha for alms to prepare his lunch and he fell on the doorstep of a very poor Brahmin. Having nothing edible in her house, the lady frantically searched her house, only to find a single fruit of amla (Amalak, gooseberry) which she then hesitantly offered to Sankara. Sankara was so moved by the incredible kindness and selflessness of this woman that he burst into poetry and sang 21 stanzas in praise of the goddess Lakshmi. Delighted by the beauty and the power of the hymn, the Goddess appeared before him and asked him why he had remembered her. Sankara begged the Goddess to overthrow the fortune of this lady’s family by granting her wealth. At first, the goddess Lakshmi refused to do so, claiming that the lady had not been charitable at her previous birth and that she was bound by the laws of karma to have a destiny linked to poverty in her current birth . Sankara implored the Goddess that the act of the lady’s absolute altruism should absolve her from her sins of the past and that Lakshmi was the only one capable of changing someone’s destiny by erasing or changing the writings of the future made by Lord Brahma. The goddess Lakshmi was so happy that she instantly flooded the lady’s house with goose berries in pure gold.
