Kanaka dhAra stotram (in tamil)

Analogous to science concepts of today, in matter domain, Shiva is Energy. Vishnu is the property of ‘mass’. Lakshmi are the ‘wealth’ of matter (land, metals etc) and beings (cattle, ourselves) that undergo birth-death-birth cycle on this property of mass, evolving higher & higher forms.

In biological domain, Shiva is Consciousness. Vishnu is the property of ‘manas’. Lakshmi are the ‘wealth’ of thoughts that undergo birth-flow-death-birth cycle in our manas, evolving higher and higher knowledge.

Adi Shankara praises this Lakshmi as the mother who drives this evolutionary cycle of birth-death-birth giving us knowledge, power/health and growth. Since mother Lakshmi keeps providing these to us, mahA-periyavA calls her as one who keeps rejuvenating us all again and again.

Adi Shankara invokes this devi who rises on Hari, to ‘flow’ like water that flows from huge golden pots turned upside down by elephants in all directions, removing despair of orphaned chicks. Hence ‘kanaka-dhArA’ stotram.

Kanaka dhArA stotram translation sung in tamil, essence in english, with mahaperiyava discourse.
