I may not be a “full-time” yogi, but when I’ve heard the stories about a special mantra, I had to dig deeper and I’ve found a few very interesting things. That’s the reason why I’ve decided to talk about a Shreem Mantra, also known as Money Mantra.
Shreem is the mantra of wealth. It calls upon Lakshmi to bestow upon the person her gift of abundance and prosperity. While it is common to use this mantra to call upon financial wealth, its true power lies in its ability to grant wealth of all types – such as abundance in health and in spirit.
Now let’s get into details.
Words resonate deeply with the world around us, whether said aloud or simply thought. Certain words resonate to the spiritual plane, opening us up to untold bounties of enlightenment, peace, … and wealth.
These words are often used as mantras during puja, to direct specific energies, blessings, and achievements upon ourselves and others.
And one of them is a word “Shreem” which is a single syllable sound known as a “seed”, or bija. It is the bija of the Hindu goddess of abundance and prosperity, Lakshmi and it is also associated with the third-eye chakra, and the head as a whole.

What is Shreem Mantra?
Bija mantra are not typically translatable; the word itself has little meaning, but its parts hold great significance. Rather it’s the vibration of the word that is of importance, resonating with the universe to achieve desired effects and results.
The parts of the manta break down roughly as such:
- Sha, for the Goddess Lakshmi.
- Ra, symbolic of wealth.
- Ee, contentment and satisfaction.
- Mmm, for Brahman, the Absolute.
And yet, the simplicity of this mantra can be misleading – and makes it an easy target for the dishonest.
This article will tell you everything you need to know about the mantra – how to use it, powerful variations, the benefits, and above all, the traps to avoid. Even the world of meditation and inner peace is not without its share of dishonest people trying to trick you into empty promises. With the information in this article, however, you’ll be ready.
Who Exactly is Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth?
Before we can truly understand Shreem, we must understand the Goddess it relates to, Lakshmi. As I stated above, Lakshmi is the Goddess of prosperity and wealth in all its forms. Her name is derived from the Sanskrit word Laksya, meaning “aim” or “goal”.
Lakshmi is a common household goddess, and particularly popular with women. She is frequently represented as a four-armed woman with golden complexion, sitting cross-legged in a fully bloomed lotus flower.
The four hands of Lakshmi represent the four ends of human life; dharma (righteousness), kama (desires), artha (wealth) and moksha (liberation from the cycle of life and rebirth).
Her hands often feature cascades of gold coins, suggesting her worshippers will gain wealth. She is always depicted wearing gold-embroidered red clothing. The red clothing symbolizes activity, and the golden lining shows prosperity. She is said to be the daughter of the mother goddess Durga, and the wife of Vishnu. The two often appear together as Lakshmi-Narayan-Lakshmi accompanying Vishnu.
Lakshmi is both a domestic deity and a mother goddess. She is often referred to as mata (mother) rather than just devi (goddess), and is also known as “Shr”, the female energy of the Supreme Being.
She is worshipped annually on the full moon night following Dusshera or Durga Puja. It is believed that on this night Lakshmi personally visits the homes and replenishes the wealth of the inhabitants within.
How to Chant Shreem Mantra and Attract Wealth
Focus on the sound of “Shreem” during the chant because this sound and its vibrations are the beating heart of the Shreem mantra and the source of its power. For this reason, it can be best to chant the mantra out loud 108 times, rather than internally, as it the sense of the sound vibrating through your body can be much easier to focus on.
As I said in the introduction, the Shreem bija also known as the money mantra can be combined with other mantras for a more concentrated effect.
In the case of Shreem, a longer mantra of Om Shreem Mahalakshmiyei Namaha can be used for the greatest results. It translates to “Greetings to the great Goddess Lakshmi Fortune”.
To begin puja, sit in a comfortable position as you normally would.
Before chanting, it can help to set an intention by saying it out loud or thinking it. This can help focus your thoughts and energies during the puja.
Then begin to chant “Om Shreem” (the mantra), inwardly or aloud. It is said for the best results of the mantra to repeat the phrase precisely 108 times.
You can use a set of mala beads to help you keep count. The red clothing symbolizes activity, and the golden lining shows prosperity, so it’s advisable that you wear a red garment with some golden details. You can also sit on a red cloth when you do the puja.
Once you have finished with the puja, continue to meditate, in silence, for a few moments more. You will feel the atmosphere of the room change around you as the mantra takes effect.

Is Brzee Mantra a Genuine Bija Mantra?
A variation of this mantra you might see online is the Brzee mantra or Shreem Brzee mantra. It is said to offer untold wealth, and the full mantra can be given to you by a yogi … for a price.
The Brzee mantra is not a traditional bija mantra. It is not known in the ancient and classical texts; rather it seems to be a fabrication of wealth gurus within the last few decades.
Their scheme is simple; to charge people to act as their guru to provide supposed ancient wisdom to attain wealth.
Unfortunately, the only wealth being attained is by the gurus, not the meditation practitioners.
Avoid the Brzee – or Brazee – mantra. It is not one of the ancient texts and chanting it has even been reporting to induce feelings of ill health. Be diligent in your research, fact check your sources, and do not fall prey to snake oil salesmen.
