Dhanya means grains.
Literally means may food always overflow in your house. May there never be a lack. May you always be surrounded by the most amazing stuff to eat.
This is a wonderful thing to happen in anyone’s life. But what is even more wonderful is the capacity of that person to be able to eat and enjoy the abundance of food. Too many times, in the pursuit of this very abundance, people lose their health. Even though they may be surrounded by plenty, they are forbidden to partake in it. They cannot enjoy this lavish spread of deliciousness that they have worked so hard to manifest.
This is tragic. They have not got the blessings of Dhanya Lakshmi.
Where there is Dhanya Lakshmi, of course there is a cornucopia of yumminess around you. Dhanya Lakshmi doesn stop there. She grants you the ability to savour and enjoy this profusion of scrumptiousness as well.
Dhanya Lakshmi can be perceived as the Goddess of Plenty and the Goddess of Vibrant Bouncy Health.
The third aspect of being truly wealthy is quite critical – health is the greatest of wealths.
Yet most people who are blessed with great health don’t really think of themselves as lucky. You see, health is appreciated most when you have lost it for some time. A person who has never had a headache will never be able to appreciate freedom from migraines. To truly feel grateful that you don’t have terrible headaches, first you need to have a few bad headaches.
In the same way, people who have always had enough to eat don’t really appreciate that they do. Only when they have felt the gnawing pangs of hunger a few times, do they feel blessed that they have food on the table whenever they want it.
Dhanya Lakshmi is the Lakshmi that’s most craved for when you have lost her. When she is there, people tend to take her for granted. Don’t do that. Feel gratitude for having bubbly health which allows you to relish all the incredible variety of food that Nature graciously provides.
Be wise. Don’t wait to lose Dhanya Lakshmi’s blessings so you can appreciate her. Revere and worship her through feeling gratitude for all you have, and cultivate food habits that ensure that she never leaves you.
