PRATTHANA (PRAYER)

Twameva mata cha pita twameva
Twameva bandhushcha sakha twameva
Twameva vidya dravinam twameva
Twameva sarvam mama deva deva

You alone are my mother and my father,
You alone are my friend and my beloved companion,
You alone are my knowledge and my wealth,
O Supreme Lord, you alone are everything for me.
SATVIKA TYAGAM (ATMASAMARPAN MANTRA)
(Surrendering yourself to God)
Kayena vacha manasendriyairva
Buddhyatmana va prakrite swabhavath
Karomi yadyad sakalam parasmai
Narayanayeti samarpayami
Whatever I do with my body, speech, mind or with other senses of my body, or with my intellect and soul or with my innate natural tendencies I offer (dedicate) everything to Lord Narayana.
LAKSHMI STOTRA (Adoration and Prayer to Lakshmi)
Lakshmi Ksheera Samudra Raaja Tanaya Sree Ranga Dhaameshvari
Daasi Bhootha Samasata Deva Vanithaam Lokaika Deepankuram
Sreeman Manda Kataaksha Labdha Vibhava Brahmendra Gangaadharam
Tvaam Trailokya Kudumbineem Sarasijam Vande Mukunda Priyaam
Siddha Lakshmir moksha Lakshmir Jayalakshmi Saraswati
Srilakshmir Varalakshmischa Prasanna mama sarvada
Varankusau pasam bheeti mudram karairvahantim kamalasanstham
Balarka koti pratibham trinetram bhajeham amvam jagadeeshwareem tam

 

I salute to Goddess Lakshmi, who is the daughter of the king of the ocean of milk, whose abode is Srirangadham (Golakdham), Who is served by all the celestial maidens and who is the source of light (knowledge) for the universe, Who has received the sustained (continued, everlasting) glance (Grace) from Brahma, Indra and Shiva, Who is the guest of the three worlds (universe comprised of Bhu, Bhuva, Svaha), who is seated on a lotus and who is the beloved of Mukunda (Lord Narayana).

 

Oh Goddess Lakshmi, who bestows success in life, who liberates us from the cycle of birth and death, who provides victory, knowledge (in the form of Saraswati), beauty, and boons, please make me always blissful.

I pray to You Mother, who is the Lord of the universe, who has the goad* and the noose* holding dreadful posture, from whose hands emanates light affecting body and spirit, who is seated on a lotus and whose three eyes are like the brilliantly radiating sun.

*Note: The noose (Pasa) signifies attachment (Raga), and goad (Ankusha) symbolizes anger (Krodha).
The more you pull a noose the more tightly the object gets held. Similarly, by having attachments to materials and relatives,
we get trapped in earthly affairs and tend to forget God.
Anger is painful and it hurts like being pierced by a goad. By having anger and attachments, we feel miserable. Only by taking refuge in God that we can escape from these miseries. By surrendering our attachments and anger to Him, we free ourselves and become fearless.
