Glory to you, O Mother, glory to you, mother Lakshmi. Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma meditate on you everyday and night.
You are yourself the consort of Brahma, Rudra and Vishnu and the mother of the world. The sage Narada sings your praises and the Sun and the Moon meditate on you.
As Durga, you grant both happiness and prosperity and he who centres his attention on you becomes a recipient of all riddhis and siddhis Prosperity and Accomplishment.
None but you dwell in the nether regions of the earth and you alone ensure good luck, bring to light the effect of action (karma), and protect all worldly treasures.
All the virtues collect themselves where you have your dwelling; with your grace and favour even the impossible becomes possible without causing any nervous agitation.
No sacrifice can be performed without you; no one can obtain any garment; it is from you that one obtains one’s sustenance.
O! daughter of the Ocean of Milk and the beauteous temple of all propitious virtues, you are verily a living mass of all fourteen gems with which none else is endowed.
Whosoever hymns this prayer to Lakshmi is purged of his sins and experiences the ecstasy of joy.
