(Bhāgyam: Wealth, happiness, luck)

Bhāgyam has many meanings including wealth, luck, and prosperity. There is no one in the world who doesn't want wealth and happiness. If possible, everyone wants to enjoy pleasures and wealth without working for it.

Bhāgyam can be in many forms, not necessarily just money. For people who lack something dear to them, getting that is their utmost bhāgyam. For example, a rich and wealthy couple may feel that they are not lucky and fortunate that they don't have any children and they feel utmost joy and happiness when they conceive a baby. Having health is wealth ('ārogyame' mahābhāgyam') for someone who is told he/she is going to die from a terminal illness.

Hindus worship goddess Lakshmi, the divine consort of Lord Vishṇu. They pray to her for wealth and also worship her in eight different forms. Indian married women worship Lakshmi every Friday and this has been a tradition and culture for millennia. Our ancient sages assigned an entire month for Indian women to worship the goddess and one special day for a strict religious observance called Varalakshmi Vratam. In addition to praying and worshipping, observing religious rituals and festivals, Hindus work very hard and try their best to be prosperous and happy.

We have spiritual wealth and our land is 'Bhāgya Bhūmi'.
