Prayers to Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi

 

alam te nirapekshaya

purna-kama namo ‘stu te

mahavibhuti-pataye

namah sakala-siddhaye

 

“My dear Lord, You are full in all opulences, but I do not beg You for opulence. I simply offer my respectful obeisances unto You. You are the husband and master of Lakshmidevi, the goddess of fortune, who has all opulences. Therefore, You are the master of all mystic yoga. I simply offer my obeisances unto You.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam, 6.19.4)

 

yatha tvam kripaya bhutya

tejasa mahimaujasa

jushta isa gunaih sarvais

tato ‘si bhagavan prabhuhu

 

“O my Lord, because You are endowed with causeless mercy, all opulences, all prowess and all glories, strength and transcendental qualities, You are the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the master of everyone.” (Bhag. 6.19.5)

 

vishnu-patni maha-maye

mahapurusha-lakshane

priyetha me maha-bhage

loka-matar namo ‘stu te

 

“O wife of Lord Vishnu, O internal energy of Lord Vishnu, you are as good as Lord Vishnu Himself, for you have all of His qualities and opulences. O goddess of fortune, please be kind to me. O mother of the entire world, I offer my respectful obeisances unto you.” (Bhag. 6.19.6)

 

 

om namo bhagavate maha-purushaya mahanubhavaya

mahavibhuti-pataye saha maha-vibhutibhir balim upaharamita

 

“My Lord Vishnu, full in six opulences, You are the best of all enjoyers and the most powerful. O husband of mother Lakshmi, I offer my respectful obeisances unto You, who are accompanied by many associates, such as Vishvaksena. I offer all the paraphernalia for worshiping You.” (Bhag. 6.19.7)

 

 

yuvam tu vishvasya vibhu

jagatah karanam param

iyam hi prakritih suksma

maya-shaktir duratyaya

 

“My Lord Vishnu and mother Lakshmi, goddess of fortune, you are the proprietors of the entire creation. Indeed, you are the cause of the creation. Mother Lakshmi is extremely difficult to understand because she is so powerful that the jurisdiction of her power is difficult to overcome. Mother Lakshmi is represented in the material world as the external energy, but actually she is always the internal energy of the Lord.” (Bhag. 6.19.11)

 

tasya adhishvarah sakshat

tvam eva purushah paraha

tvam sarva-yajna ijyeyam

kriyeyam phala-bhug bhavan

 

“My Lord, You are the master of energy, and therefore You are the Supreme Person. You are sacrifice [yajna] personified. Lakshmi, the embodiment of spiritual activities, is the original form of worship offered unto You, whereas You are the enjoyer of all sacrifices.” (Bhag. 6.19.12)

 

guna-vyaktir iyam devi

vyanjako guna-bhug bhavan

tvam hi sarva-shariry atma

shrih sharirendriyashayaha

 

“Mother Lakshmi, who is here, is the reservoir of all spiritual qualities, whereas You manifest and enjoy all these qualities. Indeed, You are actually the enjoyer of everything. You live as the Supersoul of all living entities, and the goddess of fortune is the form of their bodies, senses and minds. She also has a holy name and form, whereas You are the support of all such names and forms and the cause for their manifestation.” (Bhag. 6.19.13)

 

yatha yuvam tri-lokasya

varadau parameshthinau

tatha ma uttamashloka

santu satya mahashishaha

 

“You are both the supreme rulers and benedictors of the three worlds. Therefore, my Lord, Uttamashloka, may my ambitions be fulfilled by Your grace.” (Bhag. 6.19.14)

1. Agastya dasa - July 8, 2013

Dear prabhu, please accept our respectful obeisances. All glories unto His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, our eternal spritual preceptor, jagad-guru, and ocean of mercy and compassion on the fallen souls. We for many years have wished to offer to you our gratitude. Your service to Srila Prabhupada has blessed our life so immeasurably. We have relied on your translated prayers and have achieved the greatest benefits in every way imaginable. Thank you so very much prabhu. Like your divine master Swami Prabupada, you are a brilliant light ever shining illuminating the hearts and minds of those like us who are floundering in a vast nescience of darkness due to our attachment to worldly desires and our propensity for lust, anger, and greed. Thank you again for your blessings and hard work. Sincerely, your ever well-wisher, Agastya dasa
