Dakshina Lakshmi Stotram

Dakshina Lakshmi Stotram
[A prayer to the very pleasing Lakshmi]
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[Dakshina could indicate, south, right side, pleasing, Vishnu and so on. I feel pleasing would be the better meaning here. Lakshmi is personification of movement. She keeps on shifting herself. In this prayer which consists of 12 names of Lakshmi, she is requested to stay stable in our home.]

Trilokya poojithe devi kamala, Vishnu vallabhe,
Yaya thawam achalaa Krishne thathaabhava mayee sthiraa. 1

Oh Goddess who is worshipped in all the three worlds,
Oh Kamala, Oh Consort of Lord Vishnu,
Oh Consort of Krishna, If only you are stable,
And be with me permanently.

Kamala chanchala Lakshmi chalaa bhoothir hari Priya,
Padma Padmaalayaa samyak uchai sri Padma dharini, 2

Oh Kamala, Oh unstable one, Oh Laksmi,
Oh Goddess who moves, Oh Goddess of prosperity,
Oh Darling of Hari, , Oh Padma, Oh goddess who lives in lotus,
Oh Goddess who is pleasant, Oh Goddess who is exalted,
Oh Goddess of wealth, Oh Goddess who holds a lotus.

Dwadasaithani naamani Lakshmi samppojya ya padeth,
Sthiraa Lakshmir bhaved thasya puthra dhara abhi saha, 3

If these twelve names of Lakshmi are read and worshipped,
Lakshmi would be stable and he would be with wife and son.

Ithi Sri dakshinaa Lakshmi stotram sampoornam.

Thus ends the Dakshina Lakshmi Stotram.
