Prayer for Monday (Dhanteras)

Dhanteras is the first day of the Hindu festival of Deepavali or Diwali.

Shri Maha Lakshmi Aarti

Om victory to mother Lakshmi,
Victory to you mother, mother Lakshmi.
You are being served daily by Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma,
Om, victory to mother Lakshmi.

You are Parvathi, Lakshmi and Saraswathi, oh mother of the world,
Mother, you are mother of the world,
You are being worshipped by moon and sun,
You are sung by sage Narada,
Om, victory to mother Lakshmi.

Oh mother who makes us get everything,
You also take the form of Durga,
And you shower riches and happiness on us,
Oh mother who showers riches and happiness,
He who meditates on you mother,
Gets rid of debts, gets occult powers and gets money,
Om, victory to mother Lakshmi.

In whichever home you live mother,
All pleasures and good tidings come,
Mother all pleasures and good tidings come,
Pain and sins get dissolved,
And mind does never has fear,
Om, victory to mother Lakshmi.

Light, scented smoke, fruits and sweets, receive Oh, mother,
Oh my mother receive,
Make my wisdom enlightened, mother,
And get rid of my passion and ignorance,
Om, victory to mother Lakshmi.

To them who sing this prayer of Mahalakshmi daily,
Mother, to them who sing daily,
Sorrows will fly, pleasures will come and they will get great happiness,
Om, victory to mother Lakshmi.
