Om Mahalakshmi cha Vidmahe Vishnu

O all-knowing fire-god (Agni), would you kindly propitiate Mahalakshmi,
the Goddess of prosperity, one whose body has the golden color; one who
is decked with gold and silver garlands; one whose sari is yellow
colored and one Whose face is like the full moon and whose eyes bless
humanity with soothing grace. O Jata Veda, the fire-god, kindly tell Her
of our supplications.
O, Agni, the great fire-god, with the blessings of Mahalakshmi, wealth
and prosperity, gold and cattle, horses and useful animals, family and
children and every type of prosperity will come to me. By the arrival of
Goddess Lakshmi in my home, the prosperity will be imperishable. Health,
friends, knowledge, everlasting peace and finally freedom -- all these
types of wealth will be mine by the arrival of the Universal Mother,
Lakshmi, into my home.
That Goddess Lakshmi in whose procession the celestial horses and the
divine chariots are used, as the elephants roar the OM sound which
pleases that Goddess. She being Gajalakshmi or Lakshmi Who is worshiped
by the elephants. O Agni, I am invoking that power, the spouse of
Vishnu. May I attain Her grace.
One Who is sitting on the blossomed thousand-petalled lotus; one whose
body has the color of the lotus; may that great Goddess. The
compassionate, radiant, ever-smiling, fulfiller of all the desires of
Her votaries, hear my prayers. I invoke that Mother, Mahalakshmi of
I invoke Mahalakshmi Who shines like the full moon and like lightening.
Her fame is all-pervading. Denizens of heaven constantly worship Her.
She is minificent. Her benevolent hands are like lotuses. I take refuge
in Her lotus feet. Let Her destroy my poverty forever. O Mother
Mahalakshmi, I take shelter at Your lotus feet.
O Universal Mother, shining like the sun, it is through Your penance
that the holiest trees of Bilva and Tulasi are born. They symbolize the
tree of life. The fruit of that tree of life removes our poverty from
both within and without. In other words, bless us with inner light and
outer independence and abundance.
O Devi, the great Goddess, with Your blessings let Kubera, the treasurer
of the gods; his friend, Manibhadra, the protector of wealth, and Keerti,
the goddess of fame who was the daughter of Daksha Prajapati.
That goddess of hunger and thirst, one who is reduced to a skeleton; I
would like the death of the goddess of poverty. O Mahalakshmi, may You
kindly drive away any fear of poverty and inauspiciousness from my home.
In other words, bless me always with abundance and joy.
I invoke that supreme Goddess Lakshmi to dwell in my home forever. She
is the supreme power of protection and Goddess of all the universes and
cosmic elements. She is Mother Earth, the bestower of great contentment.
Her blessings are bringing us the fragrance of the sandalwood paste. May
that Ishwari be ever present in me.
May Mahalakshmi fulfill all my desires. May I attain perfection. May my
words come true. May I be bestowed with cattle, wealth, food, milk and
honey to share with all. May that Sri Devi come to my home in the form
of undying fame.
We are the progeny of our forefather, Sage Kardama, who is one of the
sons of Goddess Lakshmi. We invoke that Sage Kardama to install in his
family the Universal Mother, Mahalakshmi, who is decked with the garland
of lotuses. So be it.
We invoke another son of Lakshmi named Chikleeta. May he dwell in our
home and may his mother, Mahalakshmi, dwell in our family.
O Agni, may You propitiate Mahalakshmi, the destroyer of demons but
merciful to Her devotees, abode of auspiciousness, bestower of total
protection, extraordinarily beautiful, bedecked with valuable ornaments,
shining like a thousand suns; may that Hiranmayi, the golden colored
Goddess, be pleased with us.
O Agni, the fire-god, I once again pray unto you to invoke the presence
of the Lakshmi Devi with us. The Mother Who is merciful blessings with
Her lotus hand. May that yellow-clad, lotus-garlanded, moon-faced
Goddess shower Her choicest cup of blessings upon us.
O Agni, please pray to that Lakshmi that we should be blessed with
inexhaustible wealth. May that wealth bring that greatest joy and peace
along with all material comforts of cows, servants, horses, family and
good children, and the highest of all, freedom.
Let that Mahalakshmi be invoked on Whom I meditate upon, Who is the
consort of Lord Vishnu, the Supreme Mother. Let peace prevail
