Lakshmi Chalisa



The Lakshmi Chalisa is the prayer to Maha Laxmi the goddess of wealth and fortune. This forty verse prayer is an ideal way to pray to the much revered goddess.

O beautiful and gifted mother whenever the need arose you incarnated in human form to fulfill the rites of a wife to your husband Sri Hari Vishnu. O mother I already have many gifts from you but the one who prays to you throughout the year is the one who gets all the results and spiritual solace in no time. One who does the fast of Ashtami is the fortunate one Ma Lakshmi to receive your blessings.
