Sri Lakshmi Sthothram by Lord Indhra – Lyrics and meanings



|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||











Indhra speaks “ I shall prostrate before Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who resides in lotus flower, she is Narayani, she is beloved of Krishna,  she is the essence of wealth, she is decorated in flower garlands,  I shall prostrate before Goddess Vaishnavi, who have beautiful eyes resembles to lotus flower petals, she symbolizes lotus flower, she is seated on lotus flower, she is Padmini who is decked in lotus flower garlands,  I shall prostrate before Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who  symbolizes all kinds of richness, she bestows all kinds of auspiciousness to worshiper, she bestows happiness, all kinds of siddhis as well as Moksha to worshiper, I shall prostrate before Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who provides devotion and faith in Lord Hari, she is the provider of happiness, she dwells on the chest of Lord Krishna, she is dearest consort of Lord Krishna,  I shall prostrate before Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who is lustrous as rain clouds, she has the luster of gem studded lotus flower, she has supreme radiance, she symbolizes wealth, she is Mahadevi, I shall prostrate before Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who guides us through the righteous path, she governs the living beings, she symbolizes supreme wisdom and knowledge, she is the provider of refined knowledge. I shall prostrate before Goddess Mahalakshmi who dwells in the supreme abode of Sri Vaikundham, she is Mahalakshmi, she is originated from Ksheerasagara, she dwells as Svargalakshmi in abode of Lord Indhra in the heven, she resides as  Rajalakshmi in the fort of Kings, she resides as Grihalakshmi and Grihadevatha in the houses, she represents Surabhi/divine cow/ Kamadhenu, she is universal mother, she symbolizes Yajja and successful completion of Yajja as well, she is Adhithi who is the mother of deities, she resides as Kamala in the abode of Kamalalaya, she represents Svaha, Svadha, oblation to the fire sacrifices, sacrificial priest etc.. she immerses in the meditation of Lord Narayana, she is devoid of wrath and violence, she bestows abundance of boons, she is auspicious, she imparts the knowledge of Bhramam/Paramarthathathvam, she is sincerely devoted in the service to her husband Lord Hari, in her absence the whole Universe seems to be funeral ground and lifeless, in her absence the whole Universe seems to be lifeless bodies, she is beyond human intellect, she is the source of collective spirit and in her absence the living beings remains meaningless without any collective spirit, she represents Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha, she is like divine mother who feed her child with her milk during infant periods, she dwells as soul in living beings and embodies in numerous forms, it is difficult to live even for the deities without their mother and for the  living being too,  Oh! Ambike who has pleasing personality and she is most pleasant,  Oh! Sanathani, kindly provide us state of abandonment from the worldly affairs,  Oh! Haripriye, without your presence in our lives, without the richness in life becomes the state of mendicant without any relatives, Oh! Sureshvari, kindly bless us with kingdom, affluence, courage, fame, wealth, and prosperity, Oh! Haripriye, kindly bless us to fulfil all our desires, and bestow intellect, and pleasure, wisdom, righteousness, and all kinds of auspiciousness,  Oh! Devi, kindly blesses us with endless glories, honor and authority, success and valor in battle fields and all kinds of auspiciousness.”


Lord Mahendhra and Suraganas praised the glories of Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi in the above verses, eventually they prostrated before her with tears in their eyes, she was repeatedly greeted by Lord Bhrama, Lord Shankara, Shesha, Dharmarajan, Keshava, and the deities, she has provided a marvelous flower garland as a boon to deities, Goddess Sri Lakshmi along with Keshava was pleased at Suras, deities and Narada were pleased and returned to their abodes,   Devi glanced at Hari who was reclining on the milky ocean,  the above sacred verses are highly propitious, whoever recites or listens to it thrice a day during the hours of dawn, noon and dusk would remain equivalent to Lord Kubera, King will become King of Kings, these hymns are  highly auspicious equivalent to Kalpatharu/wish fulfilling creeper, whoever recites or listens to it for five lakh times would be blessed with all siddis, whoever reads or listens to it for a month would remain blissful and Rajendhra with no doubt.
