India is an amazing place. There is such insistence on being wealthy that one has to live there to believe it. Marriages are a good place to observe this devotion to wealth, but the passion for gold and large buildings is almost universal. And there are the endless stories of Gods who were resplendent with gold, and kings ….
I know all these stories through Chandamama which I used to read in the 1960s.
There is, in my view, no place more conscious of wealth than India. No other country, perhaps, where wealth is so intensely WORSHIPPED.
And so it should.
It is a good thing to be rich (so long as it is earned).
It might appear to an indifferent observer that after socialism became India's ruling ideology, Indians probably lost interest in wealth. They started putting their entire effort purely into public service, into charity, noble intentions, fasting, preaching.
While India builds thousands of statues of a Gandhi who wore a loin cloth, it spends BILLIONS OF DOLLARS in real savings to build temples and worship the most beauteous and wealthy, knowledgeable Goddess Lakshmi.
Lakshmi RULES India. Gandhi was only one of the many good men from India.
Notice that Lakshmi is preaching the message of SACRED PROFIT ("Shubh Labh") printed on the pillars behind her. And of course she is SUPER-RICH (being God), with an endless outpouring of gold coins and jewellery.
Lakshmi is worshiped perhaps more than any other God or Goddess in India.
India's desire for wealth has (thankfully!) not been dimmed by Marxian or Nehruvian socialism.
I was browsing the internet to find out whether there are any slokas that praise wealth and profit, and found this interesting piece.

Response from: NEERAJA NAVEEN,
do laxmi pooja daily.
Dhana Laxmi is worshipped for wealth. Goddess Laxmi, the consort of Lord Narayana popularly known as Lord Vishnu, is the ruler of eight kinds of wealth. It is believed that the household where she is not worshipped never gets prospered.Wealth and success never ever knocks at the doors of those households. As she is the beloved of Lord Vishnu, you need to accord respect to Lord Vishnu otherwise you can't expect Laxmi to stay at your place. This pooja needs to be performed using strict rituals ,mantras and samagri by experts.

Aum shreem Laxmi dhanam dehi dehi shreem Aum
This Mantra grants wealth and prosperity. 'Aum' and 'Shreem' are seed mantras.

The mantra is attributed to Goddess Lakshmi. She is well known as the Goddess of wealth among the Hindus. The continuous chant of this mantra for 108 times everyday can help to acquire fabulous wealth. The use of a beaded garland of Tulsi (Basil Plant) is favourable.
or chant the following laxmi mantra:
'Om Shrim Mahalakshmiyei Swaha'
Rough Translation: 'Om and salutations to that feminine energy which bestows all manner of wealth, and for which Shrim is the seed'

Kuber is regarded as the god of wealth, in Hindu mythology. Lord Kubera is also known as the god of yakshas (savage beings). Kubera is always remembered with the goddess of fortune, Lakshmi. Chanting of Kuber Mantra blesses the worshipper with money and prosperity by drawing new avenues and sources of income and wealth. Mantra of Kubera helps to increase the flow of funds and the ability to accumulate wealth. Do lakshmi Pooja . As Navarathri has started and Diwali is closeby do pooja on diwali night. Recite Lakshmi ashtothram and do Dhanakarshana poojai and Kubera mantram . I have attached the slokams for you. You can also read Kanakadhara Slokam of Lakshmi .

It is impossible for socialism to last long under these circumstances. Someone has to come up and show how capitalism is FULLY COMPATIBLE with the beliefs and desires of Indians.
