About Sri Lakshmi Kuberar Temple
Lord Kubera is well known to every one. Very few people would be unware of his fame. By Chanting his name again and again, prosperous life will result.
Lord Kubera is the leader of “Yatchas” he is the very best among them. There is a difference between “Yatchas” and “Bhoothaganas”. Rakshas of shiva are semidivine gods and their devotees are “Bhoothaganas”.
“Yatchas” are there to help mankind and procure wealth. They plead with the Lord for the betterment of good people and the created to help devotees.
Kubera is one of the “Yatchas” he was very much devoted to Shiva. He performed severe penance invoking the blessing of Shiva. He impressed Shiva with his immense Bhakthi and relentless efforts.
Shiva gave darshan to Kubera with Goddess Parvathi. Kubera was stunned to see the splendor and beauty of Goddess Parvathi. He felt sorry that he had not worshipped such a fine Goddess earlier and one of his eyes winked. Goddess Parvathi was angry that Kubera was seeing her with evil intention. She made his eye burst. Kubera lost one eye sight. Lord Kubera requested shiva to forgive him and pleaded that he had not seen the Goddess with any evil intention. Shiva asked Goddess to decide. Goddess Parvathi forgave Kubera and let one of the eyes grow on smaller size. So one eye of kubera is smaller than the other.
Kubera was rewarded by shiva with the post of one of the Guards of eight disas. Kubera was given the post of guarding northen direction. Goddess made him the Lord of wealth and materials.
Kubera is the God of wealth and material but not its originator. His responsibilities is to distribute the above two things properly. Creating wealth and distributing the same is the divine mother Goddess Lakshmi. Kubera is seen with his family in the photographs. In his hand a vessel studded with Navarathinas will be there in some photographs he is seen in blessing pose and the Gold coins and Navarathinas are pouring down.
Lord Balaji or Venkateswara at Thirupathi is said to have Borrowed money from Kubera for his marrige and he is still paying the interest on the loan amount. Hence it would seen that lord Venkateswara will be in protection during the ashadmasa.
