					The Kanakadhara Stotra is composed by Adi Sankaracarya. One day he went for Bhiksha
and visited the house of a poor Brahmin. Nothing was available in the house to offer. The
Brahmin lady earnestly searched for some thing to give and at last she found an Amla fruit
and offered it in the bowl of Sankaracarya. Sri Sankaracarya was deeply moved at the
sincerity and devotion of the poverty stricken woman and immediately in an extempore
way started imploring Goddess Lakshmi to be merciful towards this poor Brahmin lady to
drive away her poverty. He recited twenty two slokas in praise of Goddess Lakshmi Who
was pleased and appeared before Sankaracarya. Sankaracarya pleaded her to grant
riches to the Brahmin lady.
Goddess Lakshmi said that the Brahmin lady did not qualify for any riches in this life as
she did not to do any charities in her previous life. Sankaracarya replied that in this life she
gave him Amla fruit with very great reverence in spite of her extreme poverty and this act
of her alone is enough to shower riches on her.
Hearing this Goddess Lakshmi was greatly moved and immensely pleased with the
advocacy of the argument of Sri Sankaracarya, showered her with instant rain of golden
Amla fruits.
Sankaracarya while reciting the Kanakadhara Stotra extolled Lakshmi in all her eight
qualifying manifestations Asta Lakshmi).
