In his joy he gave monetary gifts to the Brahmins. On receiving the news of her son, Pārvatī was delighted. She distributed a crore of gems and much wealth among the Brahmins. Lakṣmī, Sarasvatī, Menā, Sāvitrī and all other women, Viṣṇu and all other gods gave much wealth to the Brahmins”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
