"O exalted one, men are endowed with wives, sons, houses, friends, grain and wealth due to your constant glance."

"O purifier of all, if you forsake us, neither our treasures, nor our cows, nor our houses, nor our possessions, nor our bodies, nor our wives, are secure."

ma pashun ma vibhushanam
tyajetha mama devasya
vishnor vaksah-sthalalaye


"O you whose abode is the chest of Vishnu, if you forsake me, neither sons, nor friends, nor animals, nor ornaments can be mine."

"O spotless one, men who are forsaken by you are also forsaken by goodness, truth, purity, good character and other virtues."

"And those who are glanced upon by you, although devoid of any good qualities, are infatuated by all good qualities, such as good character, lineage, wealth, etc."

sa kulinaha sa biddhinam
sa shurah sa cha vikranto
yas tvaya devi vikshitaha


"O goddess, he who is glanced upon by you, is praiseworthy, accomplished, fortunate, intelligent, high-born, heroic and possessed of power."

shiladyah sakala gunaha
paranmukhi jaga-dhatri
yasya tvam vishnu-vallabhe

"O nurse of the universe, O beloved of Vishnu, all virtues, character, etc., immediately abandon him from whom you turn away."


na te varnayitum shakta
gunan jihvapi vedhasaha
prasida devi padmakshi
masmams tyakshih kadachana


"Even the tongue of Brahma is incapable of describing your qualities. O lotus-eyed one, be auspicious unto me. Please do not abandon me."


|| Thus ends the Lakshmi-stuti ||

Sri (the Goddess of Fortune) said: "I shall never turn my face from one who praises me every morning and evening with this hymn."
