When Shankarachary was a student, as usual, one day he went to the house of a poor Brahmin woman to beg. The poor woman had nothing to give to Shankarachary. But she was a pious lady and did not want the boy to go away from her house without taking anything. So she gave an Amala fruit (gooseberry) to Shankarachary and requested him accept it as she has nothing else in the house except this fruit of Amala.
Knowing about the poor condition of the Brahmin woman and her polite behaviour, Shankarachary was very much moved and composed the Stotra in the praise of goddess Lakshmi. Goddess Lakshmi showered the Brahmin woman's house with goose berries made of gold. Since then the stotra composed by Shankarachary is known as Kanak Dhara Stotra.
