Veera Lakshmi or Dhairya Lakshmi is the Goddess of bravery and fearlessness. She is the bestower of valour in battles and courage and strength for overcoming difficulties in life. She blesses devotees with a mind to conquer everything. To worship her is to know no hesitation , have no doubts of success and so have the self-confidence to ensure success of one’s ventures.
Here’s a story to remember.
Once upon a time there was a king named Bhoj Raj. Under his rule, the people was very happy and they had all the things they needed.
King Bhoj Raj was a devotee of the Ashta Lakshmi.
One day while he was performing pooja of Sri Ashta Lakshmi, he found that all the faces of Sri Ashta Lakshmi seemed to be a little sad. He asked the deities why they were all sad. They said that the time had come for all the Ashta Lakshmis to leave his kingdom. They also added that as the king is a beloved son of them, they wished to give him a boon before leaving.
The next day Bhoj Raj performed his usual pooja. After finishing the pooja, he asked that as all the Sri Lakshmis leave his kingdom only one Sri Lakshmi stays back. The Ashta Lakshmi accepted his words and asked which Sri Lakshmi the Raja wanted to stay. Without any hesitation he said that Sri Dhairya (Veera) Lakshmi should stay in his kingdom. On hearing this, all the other 7 Lakshmis said that where Sri Dhariya Lakshmi resides, all the Sri Lakshmis also be there and since Sri Dhairya Lakshmi is going to reside in his kingdom, they will also reside in his kingdom .
