                (Prayer to Goddess Mahalakshmi)

                                       P.R.Ramachander

 

(Mahalakshmi was born out of the ocean of milk .She was chosen as his consort by Lord Vishnu. He also gave her place to stay on his chest as a mole-Sri Vatsam. She is the goddess of prosperity. Since prosperity has many aspects, people who want aspect of prosperity, choose to worship Lakshmi of that aspect. For example, a poor man worships Dhana (Wealth) Lakshmi; soldier worships Veera (Valour) Lakshmi, king Worships Vijaya (victory) Lakshmi and so on. This prayer addresses 15 different aspects of the goddess Mahalakshmi)
