Pandit Ganesh Mishra of Kashi, who knows religious texts, says that Amla is very dear to Lord Vishnu, so it is offered in his worship. This gives Lakshmi happiness and happiness and prosperity.
According to Pt Mishra, in Sanskrit it is also called Amrita, Amrit Fruit, Amalaki. In the Puranas, it has the status of Bilva fruit. This fruit is specially offered to Lord Vishnu on Devoutni Gyaras. On the Kartik Shukla Navami, drops of nectar fall from the gooseberry tree, if food is eaten under it, some portions of the nectar get into the food. Due to which effect, man becomes disease free and gives longevity.
