goddess of wealth woos them

उत्साहसंपन्नमदीर्घसूत्रं क्रियाविधिज्ञं व्यसनेष्वसक्तं।
शूरम् कृतज्ञं दृढसौहृदं च लक्ष्मीः स्वयं मार्गति वासहेतोः॥
विष्णुशर्मणः पञ्चतन्त्रात्
utsāhasaṁpannamadīrghasūtraṁ kriyāvidhijñaṁ vyasaneṣvasaktaṁ|
śūram kṛtajñaṁ dṛḍhasauhṛdaṁ ca lakṣmīḥ svayaṁ mārgati vāsahetoḥ||
viṣṇuśarmaṇaḥ pañcatantrāt

The goddess of Wealth, Lakshmi seeks out on her own volition  to have a permanent residence, people (1) who are full of enthusiasm and sense of purpose, (2) who never dither and try to procrastinate, (3) who are efficient and knowledgeable in their own professions,(4) who are not bowled over by grief but persist on their own  path with determination, (5) who are bold, (6)who are never ungrateful, and (6)  who value and nourish close  friendships.

The goddess of wealth is famous for her fickleness.. meaning no one can afford to continue to be affluent if he is not very alert.  And the author of panchatantram, the most celebrated Indian collection of allegoric tales, has his  clear-cut recipe for permanent affluence  but the prescription is rather very stiff.

Have a nice and happy day
with profound respect and warm regards

त्यजन्तु बान्धवाः सर्वे निन्दन्तु गुरवो जनाःI
तदापि परमानन्दो गोविन्दो मम जीवनंII
let all my relatives abandon me, let the great people insult me, still I am in supreme bliss since my life  is GOVINDA alone.
Iकृष्णात् परं किमपि तत्वं अहं न जाने"I
लोकाः समस्ताः सुखिनो भवन्तु।
lokāḥ samastāḥ sukhino bhavantu|
