Legend of Heera ShankhaThousands of years ago, an aged poor woman by the name Heeraujawala lived in a village in the north-eastern part of India where the River Ganges passed through. She was devoted to pleasing Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi through her selfless prayers.

Once, the entire village was inflicted with an epidemic causing thousands of casualties including her family; two sons and their wives caught the disease. Later, a celestial voice in her dream asked her to rigidly fast and please Laxmi Narayan. Soon, she followed the instructions and performed a great penance to Lord Vishnu, who appeared and blessed her with a fortunate event set in the near future. But the event could only materialize if she worshipped Dakshinavarty Laxmi shankh that could please Goddess Laxmi.

As she started worshipping the shankh, heavy rains stormed the village again and doused the Sacrificial Fire which she had set alight during the shankh worship. The heavy rain destroyed all the sacrificial paraphernalia such as fruits, ghee, vessels, flowers etc. Enraged, she cursed that the village be immediately relieved of the cruel rains and ocean. As a result, the water receded leaving a huge concentration of Dakshinavarti shankhs and other species in danger. Seeing this, Lord Varuna, the sea god, pleaded Goddess Laxmi to shelter the endangered species.

Goddess Laxmi appeared in front of Heeraujawala and asked her to withdraw her deadly curse but she argued that she can't perform her penance as her shankh has turned into the stone. Upon hearing that Goddess Laxmi predicted that from now, whoever worships Dakshinavarti Shankhs will be blessed with riches and fortune.

Since most of the conch shells are now stone, it is harder to find the real Heera Shankh. Goddess Laxmi blessed that all the stone shankhs will be twinkling with gemstones. All the shells which had turned into stones were called Heera Shankh. Heera Shankh is also known as Pahadi Shankha (conch found in mountains). Mystics worship and please Goddess Lakshmi with this Heera Shankh.

Physical Property:
The Heera shankh are found in the mountains and are made of glistening mineral substance in the opening and sometimes on the outer shell. It is cloudy from the outer crust but the insides shine like diamonds.

Benefits of worshiping the Heera Shankha:
  • One is blessed with riches and fortune if the chanting of the Goddess Laxmi mantra is performed with the sphatik mala.
  • Ritual altar is purified in the presence of Heera Shankh.
  • Worship of this Shankh attracts prosperity and abundance.
Place this in your altar, living room, work table or cash box.
There is another ancient Tibetan text stating that Guru Matsyendranath was as famous as Gorakhnath in the field of Tantra. It is said that when it comes to the highest level of divine prayers/meditation, Guru Matsyendranath was even more accomplished than Guru Gorakhnath. He had accomplished a very secret Sadhana related to Goddess Lakshmi using Heera Shankh.

  • You are really bringing home one step closer to us

    Thank you so much for your help. This means a lot for us who are residing outside India. Being far from home it is not always easy for us to do these kind of pooja and yagna all by ourselves due to lack of resources and knowledge. You are really bringing home one step closer to us. Thanks, --Madhu close
