Dhanavat (धनवत्) refers to “becoming rich”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.35 (“The story of Padmā and Pippalāda”).—Accordingly, as Dharma said to Padmā (wife of sage Pippalāda): “O chaste lady, you are blessed, you are devotedly attached to your husband. Hail to you. Take this boon. Your husband is the cause of your great protection. Let him be a young man with sexual vigour and righteousness. He shall be comely in appearance, good in conduct, eloquent in speech and perpetually stable in youth. Let him enjoy more longevity than Mārkaṇḍeya. Let him be richer (dhanavat) than Kubera. Let him enjoy more prosperity and power than Indra. [...]”.
