Devi Maa Lakshmi


Matu Lakshmi Kari Kripa,

Karo Hriday Mai Vaas.

Manokamna Siddha Kari,

Purvahu Meri Aaas.

(Mother Lakshmi please show your kindness,

And take residence in my heart.

Please fulfil all my desires,

This is my prayer to you.)


Yahi Meri Ardas, Hath Jor Viniti Karoon.

Sabh vidhi Karo Suvas, Jai Janani Jagdambika.

(This is my prayer, I make a request to you with my hands held together,

Please fulfil all the wishes I make. Victory to you oh Janani Jagadambika.)


Sindhu – suta Main Sumirou Tohi

Gyan Budhi Vidya do mohi

(Oh Eternal Mother and Daughter of Sindhu, I always have you in my mind,

Bless me with knowledge, wisdom and awareness.)

Tum samaan nahin koi upkaari

Sab Vidhi purvahu aas hamari

(There is no one as charitable as you in the Universe,

Please fulfil our desires in every possible way.)

Jai Jai Jai Janani Jagdamba

Sabki tum hi ho avlamba

(Victory, victory, victory to you, oh Janani Jagadambika,

You are the one that offers support to all.),

Tumhi ho sab ghat ghat ki vasi

Vinti yahi hamaari khaasi

This alone is our special request to you.)

Jag janani jai sindhu kumari

Deenan ki tum ho hitkari

(Oh Mother of the World, Victory to you, oh Princess Sindhu


You are the one who bestows good upon the oppressed.)

Binvo nit tum maharani

Kripa karo jag-janani bhawani

(You are the ultimate reality, you are the great queen,

Please show your mercy, oh Mother Bhavani – the Creator of the world.)

Kehi vidhi astuti karoon tihari

Sudhi leejay apradh bisari

(How do I pray to you, oh Maa Laxmi?,

I admit regretfully that I do not know how to worship you correctly.)

Kripa drishti chitvo mum ori

Jag janani vinti sun mori

Oh Creator of the Universe, please listen to my prayers.)

Gyan budhhi jay sukh kee data

Sankat haro hamaari mata

(Oh Giver of knowledge, wisdom, victory and happiness,

Please take away all sorrows, our Mother.)

Ksheer sindhu jab Vishnu mathaayo,

Chaudah ratna sindhu may paayo

(When Lord Vishnu caused the milky ocean to churn violently,

Fourteen jewels were found in the ocean.)

Chaudah rattna me tum sukh raasi

Seva kiyo prabhu ban daasi

(Of those, you were the most prized and valuable one,

And you submitted yourself to the service of the Lord by becoming his maid)

Jab jab janam prabhu jahaan leenha

Roop badal tahaan seva keenha

(Whenever the Lord has taken birth in different incarnations in different places,

You have morphed yourself and happily served him there.)

Svayam Vishnu jab nar tanu dhaara

Leenyo avadhpuri avatara

(When Lord Vishnu himself assumed the form of a human-being,

And appeared in Ayodhya as Lord Rama)

Tab tum prakat janakpur manhee

Seva kiyo hriday pulkahi

(Oh Mother, you appeared in Janakpuri,

To serve him and fill the hearts of your devotees with joy.)

Apnaya tohi antaryami

Vishwa vidhit tribhuvan ke swami

(The omniscient Lord embraced you as an equal,

He who is the aware of all that happens in the Universe and is the Lord of all three worlds.)

Tum sam prabal shakti nahin aani

Kahan lau mahima kaho bakhani

(There is no other power equal to you, oh Mother,

And no description can truly explain your glory.)

Man kram vachan karay sevakayee

Man ichhit vaanchit phal payee

(Through my thoughts, speech and actions I service you, oh Mother,

So that I may find the fruits that I seek in my mind)

Taji chal kapat aur chaturaayee

Pujahee vividh bhaanti man laai

(I eliminate trickery, deceit and dishonesty from my thoughts,

So I focus all my mental powers in worshiping you.)

Aur haal mai kahoum bhujhaee

Jo yeh path karay mun layee

(What else do I explain about my mental state, oh Mother…

Other than just singing this prayer to you with utmost focus and a clear mind.)

Tako koee kasht noyee

Mun icchit paavae phal soyee

(He will not be touched by any difficulty,

And will acquire anything that he wishes for in his mind.)

Trahi trahi jai dukh nivarini

Trividh taap bhav bandhan harini

(Help me, help me, oh Victorious Mother & Remover of Sorrows,

oh Destroyer of the three types of difficulties and of all fears)

Jo yah padhey aur padhavay

Dhyan laga kar suney sunavay

(Whoever reads this prayer and gets others to do the same,

And with concentration listens to this prayer and narrates it to others…)

Tako koi na rog satavey

Puttarad dhan sampatti pavey

(…he will not be tormented by any diseases,

And he will be blessed with children, wealth and prosperity.)

Puttarheen aru sampatiheena

Andha badhir kodhee ati deena

(When a person who is childless or a person who lacks any wealth and property,

And similarly the blind, the deaf, the poor and the downtrodden…)

Vippra bolaaya key path karavae

Shanka dil mein kabhi na lavae

(…if they have someone with learning to conduct rituals & prayers to please you,

Without an iota of doubt in your powers at any point of time.)

Path karavay din chalisa

Taapar kripa karein gaureesa

(If they recite this forty verse prayer (chalisa) to you every day,

You will shower them with mercy and grace, oh Maa Gauri.)

Sukh sampati bahut see pavay

Kami nahi kaaho kee aaway

(They will acquire lots of happiness and prosperity,

And will never feel the lack of anything in their lives.)

Baraha maas karai jo pooja

Taihi sam dhanya aur nahi dooja

(Whoever worships you for twelve months,

Does not have anyone who is equally virtuous and blessed as they are.)

Pratidin path karaai man mahi

Un sum koi jag main kahun nahi

(Those who recite this prayer in their minds every day,

Will have none in the world equal to them in glory and repute.)

Bahu vidhii kya main karaun barayee

Lay pariksha dhyan lagayee

(In many ways and in everything I do, I praise you oh Mother,

I meditate upon you in all ways possible.)

Kari vishvas karaye vrat nema

Hoya siddh upjai ur prema

(Those who hold an unwavering belief in you and fast in your name,

Become accomplished and self-sufficient through your love.)

Jai jai jai lakshmi bhawani

Sab main vyapit ho gunkhani

(Victory, victory, victory to you, oh Maa Lakshmi, oh Maa Bhavani,

May your divine qualities manifest in all your devotees.)

Tumharo tej prabal jag mahi

Tum sam kouu dayalu kahun nahee


Your glory in this world cannot be described.

There is none as kind and charitable as you, oh Maa Laxmi.)

Mohi anaath kee sudhi ab leejay

Sankat kaati bhakti mohi deejay

(Please take me into your refuge – like an orphan who needs a mother,

Please destroy all my obstacles and bless me with the power of complete devotion to you)

Bhool chook kari kshama hamari

Darshan deejay dasha nihari

(Please forgive any mistakes and faults committed by us,

Please bless us with the opportunity to see your image and enhance the state of our lives)

Bin darshan vyakul adhikari

Tumhi achchat dukh sahtay bhari

(Without the sight of your divinity, we are left extremely anxious,

Please save us from this ocean of suffering.)

Nahin mohihn gyan buddhi hai man mein

Sab janat ho apney man main

(I lack both knowledge and wisdom in my mind, oh Mother.

But you are omniscient in your mind, Maa Laxmi.)

Roop chaturbhuj karkey dharan

Kasht moor ab karhu nivaran

(Assuming your found-handed form, oh Mother,

Please relieve us of all sorrows and pain immediately.)

Kehi prakar main karaun badhayee

Gyan buddhi mohi nahi adhikayee

(In what ways do I praise you, oh Maa Laxmi,

I have insufficient knowledge and wisdom to be able to do so.)


Trahi trahi dukh haarini, haro baygi sab traas

Jayati jayati jay Lakshmi, karo Shatru ka nash.

Ramdas dhari dhyan nit, vinay karat kar jor

Matu Lakshmi das pai, karhu daya ki kor

(Save us! Save us! Oh Remover of Sorrows, Destroy all evils which trouble us,

Victory, victory, victory to you, oh Maa Laxmi, please destroy our enemies,

Leading my mind daily through meditation, I focus hard on you,

Oh Maa Lakshmi, please shower your kindness on this devotee of yours.)
