The Hindu months of Margasira and Sravana are considered very dear to Lakshmi Devi and she is worshiped by the devotees during these months.
Chanting Lakshmi Ashtotaram, Ashtakam and Sahasranamam while worshiping Lakshmi Devi in these auspicious months is good for a prosperous life.
These stotrams and ashtakams are very powerful mantras which are very effective.
Here is Sri Mahalakshmi Ashtakam lyrics. You can recite 'Kanaka Mahalakshmi Namostute' at the end of every second line, for reciting Kanaka Mahalakshmi ashtakam.
