Lakshmi Kubera Prayer by Swami Vishwananda

On Monday night Swami Vishwananda performed a ceremony for Lakshmi-Kubera.
Swami Vishwananda said: In the Hindu tradition, Kubera is regarded as the god of wealth. Lord Kubera is also known as the god of yakshas (savage beings). Kubera is always remembered with the goddess of fortune, Lakshmi. Chanting of the Kubera Mantra blesses the worshipper with money and prosperity by drawing new avenues and sources of income and wealth. The Mantra of Kubera helps to increase the flow of funds and the ability to accumulate wealth.
One Kubera Mantra is as follows:
"Om Yakshyaya Kuberaya Vaishravanaaya Dhanadhanyadi Padayeh
Dhana-Dhanya Samreeddhing Me Dehi Dapaya Swaha"
Meaning of the prayer: Kubera, the lord of yakshas, bless us with wealth and prosperity. One who worships lord Kubera and Lakshmi can never fall short of money and material comforts. The special puja of Kubera is performed on Dusshera, Dhan triyodasi and Deepawali, asking for prosperity and blessings.
