I salute to Goddess Lakshmi, who is the daughter of the king of the ocean of milk, whose abode is Srirangadham, Who is served by all the celestial maidens and who is the source of light for the universe, Who has received the sustained glance from Brahma, Indra and Shiva, Who is the guest of the three worlds, who is seated on a lotus and who is the beloved of Mukunda.
Oh Goddess Lakshmi, who bestows success in life, who liberates us from the cycle of birth and death, who provides victory, knowledge, beauty, and boons, please make me always blissful.
I pray to You Mother, who is the Lord of the universe, who has the goad* and the noose* holding dreadful posture, from whose hands emanates light affecting body and spirit, who is seated on a lotus and whose three eyes are like the brilliantly radiating sun.
(Lakshmi Stotra, Source: Hindu Temple of Delaware)
*Note: The noose signifies attachment and goad symbolizes anger.
“Every day is a wealthy day.”
