Agarwal Samaj Gotra List and Kuldevi Mahalakshmi Mata | Mahalaxmi Mata |
According to the memorials and social magazines of Agrawal society organizations, Kuldevi of this society is “Mahalaxmi Devi”. “Jaat-Jadoola” and other religious activities are done at the ‘Shaktipeeth’ of Mahalaxmi Devi. Some Gotras of Agarwal community worship Shakti Dadi.
It is believed that in the ancient times, King Dhanpal of Pratap Nagar was very great. His descendant, King Agarsen, became the owner of Delhi. He built the cities of Arada and Agroha as his name. At that time, he was married to beautiful ‘Nagakanya Madhavi’- the daughter of King Kumad of Pangan, on which Indra became angry, he created a terrible famine on earth, but King Agrasen failed all his efforts. After handing his state works to his Queen Madhavi, King Agrasen started performing Austerity staying solitary in the forest. After strong penance, Mahadeva Shiva was pleased with him and asked for a blessing. Agrasen said that ‘ I wish Indra become under my rule’. Mahadeva gave this same boon and said that now you worship Mahalaxmi, which will keep your Treasury full with money and also Indra will be subject to you.
Maharaja Agrasen and Mahalaxmi Mata
Agarsen chanted Mahalakshmi, Goddess pleased and told him that now you go to Kolhapur Nagar, there is a king named Mahidhar, who has organized ‘Svayamvar’ of her daughter ; marry his daughter and raise your offspring.King Agrasen married seventeen Nag-Kanyas. Indra was nervous with the growing influence of King Agarsen, and , he sent his nymph “Madhushalini”with Narada Muni to friendship with the king.
King Agrasan performed a huge ritual on the banks of Yamuna. Then Lakshmi rejoiced and said, O King! Your clan will increase and your name will be more popular. I am Kuldevi, who protects your family, you worship Yajna. Thus, the king completed seventeen Yagya, but in the middle of the eighteenth Yagya, the king got confused and stopped in the half Yagya. There were seventeen seventeen Yagya in this way. Which became known as Agarwal’s seventeen and a half Gotras.
