|| Jai Sriman Narayana ||











I shall meditate upon Goddess Thulasi who is closest companion of Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, she eradicates all kinds of sins of worshiper and provides abundance of pieties, I shall prostrate before Goddess Thulasi who is worshiped by Maharishi Naradha, she is dearest darling of Lord Narayana.   I shall prostrate before Goddess Thulasi who  is the source of happiness and auspiciousness, she eradicates miseries and illnesses of worshiper, I shall prostrate before Goddess Thulasi whose root is the dwelling place of all the sacred rivers, I shall prostrate before Goddess Thulasi whose stem is the abode of all the deities,  I shall prostrate before Goddess Thulasi whose top portion is the dwelling place of Veda and Upanishads.  I shall prostrate before Goddess Thulasi who symbolizes nectar, and auspiciousness, she eradicates miseries and sorrows of worshiper, she destroys fears and illnesses of the worshiper, I shall prostrate before Goddess Thulasi who is originated at the wish of deities, she is worshiped by Rishis and Sages, she eradicates all the sins of worshiper, she is beloved of Hara and Hari, she is the provider of fortune, virtuous offspring, wealth and abundance of grains and affluence, she is the provider of good health, she eradicates grief and miseries, Oh! Madhavapriye/darling of Madhava, kindly blesses us.  Whoever recites the glories of Thulasi and venerates the lotus feet of Goddess Thulasi on daily basis would remain unblemished.  I shall prostrate before Goddess Thulasi who eradicates worldly bondages of the worshiper; she cleanses the afflictions of worshiper, she is worshiped by the people who afflicted, veneration of Goddess Thulasi brings nearness to Lord Krishna, she is the provider of liberation from repeated births too.

Oh! Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi your are finding immense pleasure in the various fragrances from the enchanting dark complexioned body of Lord Hari, like the full bloom flowers of Tamala trees attracts the honey bees Oh! Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, I earnestly pray to shower prosperity with your auspicious glance.  Oh! Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, who is originated from the milky ocean, keeps showering her fleeting look filled with compassion and love on Lord Hari/Murari, like honey bees attracted towards the striking blue lotuses, let that auspicious glances shower affluence to me.   Oh! Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, consort of Lord Hari/Mukunda who is in Yoganidra/inclining posture on the giant serpent Adishesha, your beautiful stares with half closed eyes in shy and affection on him would bring immense bliss; shower your auspicious glance on me to attain prosperity.  Oh! Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi resides in the lotus, consort of Lord Hari who won over the demon Madhu, wears Kousthubha and Indraneela, keeps showering your enchanting glance on Him, let that fleeting look fall on me to bring all the goodness.  Oh ! Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, daughter of Sage Bhargava, who resides on the broad chest of Lord Hari, slayer of Kaitabha, she shines like streak of lightening amidst of dark cloud, shower your grace on me to attain prosperity.  Oh! Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, consort of Lord Hari, slayer of Madhu who is approachable by Lord Manmatha, therefore her auspicious glances are loaded with compassion and love that are capable to bring prosperity, let that momentary look fall on me too.  Her auspicious glances which makes the Supreme Lord Hari/slayer of Madhu blissful, are capable to make sacred as Lord Indra, her fleeting look brought back the glories and kingdom to Lord Indra.  Oh! Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, the mother of the Universe your single glance is capable to provide salvation and a place in the heaven for your worshipper that is extremely difficult to obtain, let your glance fall on me and fulfill my desires.  Oh! Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, consort of Lord Narayana, your mercy is like a gentle breeze, shower the rain of compassion and wealth on this parched land and quench the thirst of Chakora bird, eradicate the loads of sins committed through your divine glance from the cloud like dark eyes. 





My  humble salutations to the Mother of the Universe, She is the personification of eternal Knowledge & Wisdom, She is the consort of Lord Hari, who has Garuda as celestial vehicle, She is the representation of deluge at the end of each Yuga, She is the consort of Supreme Lord who has crescent moon on matted hair locks, She performs creation, preservation and destruction.



My humble salutations to personification of Veda which is the cause of righteousness, My Salutations to your personification as Goddess Rathi who provides virtues, My Salutations to your personification as Goddess Shakthi who resides in the Lotus of hundred petals, my salutations to your personification as Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi consort of Lord Purushothama.  My salutations to Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, consort of Lord Narayana, sister of Lord Soma and Amrutha, who is enchanting as full bloom lotus flower, My salutations to Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who was originated from the milky ocean, my salutations to Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who is omnipresent and resides in golden lotus.  My salutations to Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who showers mercy on deities and carries the divine bow called ‘Sharnga’. My salutation to the daughter of Sage Bhrugu, my salutations to the occupant on Lord Vishnu’s chest, my salutations to Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who is the consort of Lord Damodhara, resides in the lotus.  My salutations to Earth and the mother of the Universe, she is worshipped by deities and consort of son of Nanda.  My salutations to the mother of the Universe who is the provider of affluences, pleasures to the senses, higher status, fame and remover of miseries, whoever worships her would be blessed with prosperity with her merciful glances, My salutations to Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, queen of the heart of Lord Murari/consort of Lord Hari, who resides in the lotus, holding lotuses in her hands, attired in white dazzling clothes, adores attractive garlands on her chest and sandal paste.  She is the provider of happiness and prosperity to the three worlds; I earnestly pray to show mercy on me.


My humble  salutation to the Mother of the Universe, consort of Supreme Lord Hari, daughter of ocean and provider of nectar, eight elephants shove off from the golden vessel into diverse direction and holy Ganga streaming to heaven for your ablutions.  She is the embodiment of lotus; she is the consort of Supreme Lord Narayana who has the eyes resemblance to lotus and her fleeting looks are loaded with mercy.  I myself poorest of the poor earnestly pray to shower your glance on me so that I may become the recipient of your compassion.  Oh! Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi, controller of the Universe, protects us with the gaze through your lotus like eyes and forgives me.  My heart is filled with the fear of poverty; I surrender to you wholly, protect me with your unparalleled compassion.


Whoever worships Goddess Sri Mahalakshmi who is the personification of Veda, sung praising the glories would be blessed with righteousness, incomparable fortune and fame, wisdom & knowledge which will be praised by the intellectuals.

My salutation to Lord Ganesha/Vinayaka, who holds the Modhakam which provides immense pleasure and always work for the liberation of his passionate devotees, He is beautifully adorned in crescent moon, he is the protector of the Universe, he is the sole master to his devotees and eradicates their sins, He is the destroyer of the inauspiciousness of his devotees whoever surrender to him.



My salutation to Lord Ganesha/Vinayaka, who assumes dreadful form, which has the resemblance of Lord Aditya in the early hours of dawn to the arrogant, he is unblemished, venerated by deities and fervent devotees, he is the remover of inauspiciousness of whoever surrender to him.  He is the Lord of deities/Sureshwara, He is the personification of wealth/ Nidhishwara, He is the Lord of Ganas/Ganeshwara who has elephant face/Gajeshwara.   He is the Lord of the Universe/Maheshwara, I shall reverentially surrender to Him.



My salutation to Lord Ganesha/Vinayaka who is the provider of auspiciousness to the entire Universe, removes the demonic traits of His devotees, His huge body represents prosperity, showers boons to his devotees.  His marvelous face represents flawless nature of him.  He is compassionate, forgiving nature, showers prosperity and happiness to His devotees.  He is provider of eternal wisdom and intelligence to whoever venerates him.



My salutation to Lord Ganesha/Vinayaka, who is the remover of sufferings and grief of his devotees, praised by the scriptures, He is the elder son of Lord Thripurari, slayer of demon Thripurasura and He crushes the pride of Suras and enemies, eradicates illusion from the mind of His devotees, he is the personification of all the auspiciousness who shower perpetual grace whoever venerates him as eulogized in scriptures.



My salutation to Lord Ganesha/Vinayaka, who is Ekadhantha, most desirable to his devotees, son of Lord Shiva, slayer of demon Anthaka,  His forms are incredible and infinite; it slices the obstacles of His ardent devotees.  He resides in the heart of Yogis, I shall reverentially venerate Ekadhantha.
