Sri Matre Namaha

Lobhanāśinī – The One Hundred & Seventy Oneth name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.

(bhaktanam) lobham nasayati sa

She is the destroyer of greed

Lobhanāśinī : Lobha means greed / miserliness and Nasini (Nashini) means destroyer

She destroys greed / miserliness of Her devotees.

It is said that greed destroys good qualities of devotees. Hence Sri Devi is the destroyer of greed in the mind of the devotees

Krishna says ‘There are three gates leading to the hell – desire, anger and greed. These should be given up, as they lead to the degradation of the soul’ (Gita. XVI.21).

That is why She destroys greed of Her devotees.
