Mahalakshmi Stotram

The Shri Mahalakshmyashtakam Stotram is a hymn in praise of Mahalakshmi, the goddess of beauty, prosperity, and good fortune. In this hymn, she is also extolled as the primordial energy, the mother of the universe. Recitation of this hymn is one way that Siddha Yoga students can pay homage to Mahalakshmi and invoke her blessings. This practice supports us to recognize and nurture her divine qualities within ourselves, in our lives, and in the world around us.

Any occasion—particularly an occasion one wishes to approach with a spirit of friendliness, generosity, and goodwill—is an excellent time to welcome the presence of Mahalakshmi through the recitation of this hymn. Events especially suitable for this practice include birthdays, weddings, and any beginning—the start of a new year or the commencement of some new venture. Holidays such as Navaratri, when Mahalakshmi is honored, and Deepavali, when people welcome this goddess into their homes and lives, are also traditional times to recite this hymn as an expression of gratitude for her blessings of abundance, harmony, and protection.
