    #Shri_Lakshmi_Charit 9

    In this last part, of ShriLakshmi Charit, I have described the Kripa (Mercy) of Devi Lakshmi, and the opulences she can provide. She being the Supreme Mother, there is absolutely nothing impossible for her. Therefore, she provides to one the blessings of wealth (Dhan), crops(Dhaanya), progeny (Santaan), Victory (Vijay), Dhairya (Patience), Boons (Vardaan), devotion to her and Narayana (Bhakti) and lastly the most important goal of human life, Liberation (Mukti).
    She is the one who guides the path of sages, she is the one who provides one the supreme knowledge to attain Moksha and service to ShriLakshmiNarayana. She destroys all inauspiciousness and gives rise to all kinds of auspiciousness for us and her devotees, Sharnagatas!
    She is the Goddess of My Heart ❤
    Hence I pray to her to provide endless mercy to that person who recites this hymn 'ShriLakshmi Charit' daily or routinely.

    The one who provides devotion to ShriVishnu is Lakshmi
    The one who provides the fruit of Liberation is Lakshmi
    The personification of all qualities is Lakshmi

    The shelter of those who seek refuge in her is Lakshmi
    The one served by all devotees is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi

    Explanation:
    ShriLakshmi has an important role is Sharnagati. In fact in ShriVaishnav Tilak the two white lines represent Jeeva and Parmatma and the red line in between represents Ma Lakshmi. In the ninth para, I have described her rulership over everything, therefore she can provide the Supreme Bliss to anyone by her grace alone.
    She very mercifully provides her grace to the ones who take shelter in her. (Sharnagatas). She always present on the feet of Narayana where one jeeva can approach him, not only this she is also present in his heart forever. Therefore, she from one side she welcomes the Jeevas in serving Hari and on the other side she being the Queen of Hari's Heart, makes him forgive all sins and trespasses of Jeevas and makes them eligible to serve them. And then, she very lovingly gives them the fortune of serving both her and her Lord forever in ShriVaikuntha. This is her mercy!!!!!

    Happy Navratri Day 7!

    #Shri_Lakshmi_Charit 7

    Here, I have described about ShriLakshmi's Avatars along with Narayana. We discussed previously, that both are equal in qualities and compassion. And out of that compassion to save the Jeevas from Samsar Sagar, they both descend time after time.
    After being the wife of Narayana, Lakshmi takes up this duty along with him, being a constant companion fulfilling the Sankalpa(will) of Narayana to save all Jeevas.

    The one who is always present with Hari is Lakshmi
    Those who always descend (for us) are Hari and Lakshmi
    The one who destroys Adharma is Goddess Lakshmi
    The Nurturer of Devotees is Devi Lakshmi
    The chaste wife Tulsi is ShriLakshmi
    The daughter of Bhrigu, hence called ShriBhargavi is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the Youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi |8|

    The one worshipped by Prahlad are Narsimha and Lakshmi
    The beloved of Upendra (ShriVaman) is Padma Lakshmi
    The daughter of Janak, and the Consort of Raam is Lakshmi
    The purest and the most pious Seetha is Lakshmi
    The better half of the foremost in dynasty of Yadu (ShriKrishn) is Lakshmi
    Satyabhama, Rukmini and Nappinai is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the Youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi |9|
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Explanation:
    Lakshmi is always present with Hari and both out of their compassion to save us, destroy Adharma and nurture devotees descend in various forms.
    Tulsi Devi, the pious chaste wife is said to be a form of ShriLakshmi only, she was married to ShriVishnu.
    Then, she became the daughter of Bhrigu and Khyati and married ShriVishnu.
    When Bhagwan came as ShriNarsimha, she came as Chenchu Lakshmi. When Bhagwan became Vaaman, she was called Padma.
    When he was the upholder of Dharma, ShriRaam, she was the purest and the most pious Devi Seetha.
    When he came as the gem of Yadukul, (dynasty of King Yadu) and the child of Braj Bhumi, she descended as Rukmini Ma. Nila Devi became Ma Nappinai or Ma Nagnjeeti and Bhudevi became Ma Satyabhama. Here, Bhudevi and Niladevi are seen as forms of Lakshmi as we discussed previously (Antaryamitva and qualities).

    The one who is eternal like Govinda is ShriLakshmi
    The one worshipped by Vedas and Puranas is ShriLakshmi
    The one who is solely and completely dedicated to her husband (is a chaste wife) is ShriLakshmi
    The one who is solely dedicated to ShriKrishna is Lakshmi
    The one worshipped by Krishna's love is ShriLakshmi
    The Primordial Couple (Divya Dampatis) are ShriVishnuLakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Explanation:
    As the Primordial Couple ShriLakshmiNarayana got married, I have further described, the qualities of ShriLakshmi with respect to ShriVishnu being her husband. Both have an equal status, being eternal and all pervading.
    Both are the object of worship by the Vedas, Puranas, and Itihaas too.

    Vishnu Puran Book 1 Chapter 8 Shloka 17
    ShriParashar said: Oh Best Among Twice Born Ones! The one who never leaves the side of Vishnu, the Mother of the World, ShriLakshmi is eternal and all pervading just like him.

    Further in Shloka 34
    To say in brief, in Devatas, Manushyas and all entities, the Masculine Form is that of Vishnu and the Feminine is that of Lakshmi (Antaryamitva), there is nothing that exists besides these too.

    ShriVishnu is solely dedicated to ShriLakshmi and ShriLakshmi is solely dedicated to ShriVishnu. Both are revered as Divya Dampatis, the Primordial Couple!

    The one worshipped by Shiva, Brahma etc is Lakshmi
    The friend of Uma (Parvati Mata) and Sharda (Saraswati Mata) is ShriLakshmi
    One who is always according to Hari's wish is Lakshmi
    One who is always the nurturer of all devotees is ShriLakshmi
    The one who is very gracefully situated on the chest of ShriVishnu is Lakshmi
    The one who is situated in her ShriVatsa abode is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Explanation:
    Here the position of Lakshmi is explained being VishnuPatni- the wife of ShriVishnu and her glories apart from that as well.
    Being the empress, and the origin of all Goddesses, ShriLakshmi is worshipped by Shiv Ji, Brahma Dev etc. They all rever her! She is the friend of Parvati and Saraswati Devis who always worship her and adore her, as she is their origin. She is the great MahaLakshmi!
    She always dons a form alike that of Bhagwaan Narayana, as per his desire and mindset. This is also described in greater detail in the Book 1 Chapter 8 and 9 of ShriVishnu Puran (it's so sweet to read ��)
    When Bhagwan dons a human form, she too becomes a human wife according to him. Even in Matsya, Kurma avatars she accompanied him, always in different forms.
    Bhagwaan and Devi are never separate. They are like Sun and Sunlight, Flower and Fragrance.
    She is always presiding on the chest of ShriVishnu. The ShriVatsa mark on his chest marks her presence on it eternally and forever...��

    I owe my maximum knowledge to @parth_madhav Bhaiya ����❤��

    One who was desired by each mind is Lakshmi
    The sister of Moon and Nectar is Lakshmi
    The one who enchanted ShriVishnu is ShriLakshmi
    The one who got enchanted by the form of ShriHari is ShriLakshmi
    There was no one like Vishnu, There was no one like Lakshmi
    The wife of Vishnu, beloved of Hari, is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Explanation:

    After knowing about her beauty and chief characteristics, everyone wished to have her- The Matchless Goddess. All the apsaras (celestial nymphs) that arose from the Ocean were not even a spark of Lakshmi's beauty.
    But to be Lakshmi Pati- The Husband of Lakshmi, only a person who is equal to her was eligible. Only Parmatma ShrimanNarayana could be her bridegroom. In ShrimadBhagwatam, Gopikas describe him as Shriyah Ekant Vallabham- The Sole Husband of ShriLakshmi.
    In fact Lakshmi is the defining feature of Parmatma. Vedas call the one Parmatma, who is the 'Husband of Lakshmi' and none else.
    When her marriage was being conducted, Lakshmi looked around for her suitable bridegroom (of course she knew, it was just a leela). Everyone whether Asuras or Devatas had one or the other taints, none was completely pure.
    Then Lakshmi's eyes fell on Vishnu, who was the blemishless Parmatma, the Antaryami of All, the Abode of Shudh Satva, whom sins never touch. ShriVishnu who is always ShriyahPati got enchanted by the beauty of her beloved wife. And Lakshmi too got enchanted by the matchless form of ShriHari.
    Hence, she garlanded Vishnu as her Husband, and this was their another leela of being united.
    In Vishnu Puran, Rishi Matreya asks Rishi Parashar, that if Lakshmi arose from Ocean and has a birth then how come, she be eternal like Vishnu?
    To which Rishi Parashar replies, that Lakshmi is Vishnu's eternal companion. And both of them are always engaged in their infinite pastimes and keep enjoying their union in each leela.
    The Samudra Manthan was another of their leela to get united and enjoy their love pastimes.
    Lakshmi is all pervading alike Vishnu, she always resides on his chest as the Shrivatsa Mark. When he becomes Raam, She becomes Seetha, when he is Krishna, she becomes Rukmini. They are never separate.

    #Shri_Lakshmi_Charit

    Happy Navratri Day 1 to everyone!!!

    Today, I shall start a series called 'Shri Lakshmi Charit' a 108 line hymn by me, for my Devi Lakshmi.
    It is sung like Naam Ramayan (hear it from YouTube, it's a hymn, which narrates the whole Ramayan with name Raam at the end of each line, a very unique and innovative way to remember Raam and Ramayan simultaneously)

    Taking inspiration from the same and in the same tune, I wrote the story of my Devi Ma, my ShriLakshmi in the same format, in 108 lines with name Lakshmi at the end of each line recounting her auspicious story and relationship with our Bhagwan Narayana. ��❤

    From today I shall post this hymn, para by para, on 9 days of Navratri.

    On the first day, I have taken two paragraphs, however on rest 8 days, I will take single paragraphs. Please enjoy!
    Jaya Shri Ma!!!!

    Explanation:

    Once Rishi Durvasa was gifted a garland of flowers by Shiv Ji. When he was passing by, he met Indra Dev on his Airavata elephant, Rishi Durvasa gifted Indra Dev with the garland however, due to his pride, he threw the garland to his elephant who in turn crushed it under his foot. Rishi Durvasa got infuriated by his act, of throwing the praise worthy garland.
    He cursed Indra Dev, who was the King of Devatas, that they will get 'Shriheen' devoid of all prosperity. Respecting the words of the sage, ShriLakshmi, the Goddess of Prosperity left the residence of all devatas, asuras and everyone. Now, the world cannot exist without Sri.
    Aggrieved, all devas and asuras headed by DevRaaj Indra approached ShriyahPati Narayana, the Lord of Shri. He advised them, to together churn the Milk Ocean (Ksheer Sagar), by making Mandaar Mountain as the churning stick (which Narayan carried and supported in his Kurma Avatar) and Vasuki Snake as the churning rope. Devas and Asuras agreed to this, ShriNarayana also helped them churn the Ocean.
    Various components emerged out of the Ocean, the poison was consumed by Shiv Ji, and various other precious things like the Moon, the Kaustubh etc were taken by everyone else and Narayana.
    Later emerged Amrit (Nectar) for which Narayana had to take Mohini Avatar, but I will keep this story for later day.

    ShriLakshmi too emerged from this churning. She emerged with all her glory from the ocean of milk, hence she is aslo called the daughter of Milk Ocean or Ksheer Saagar. She is a Nitya Kishori (Youthful girl just like her Lord who is Nitya Kishor).
    She was seated on a magnificent lotus throne.
    She was of eight forms called the Asht Lakshmis.
    She enchanted everyone including Devas and Asuras and everyone wished her. However her heart was set on her eternal Lord Narayana, who is ever free from vices.
    ShriLakshmi has Infinite Auspicious Qualities just like her Lord Narayana.
    All matchless beauty emerges from her, she is the reservoir of all grace and beauty. No one is more beautiful than her. |1|

    She was of the forms of Shri, Bhu and Neela Devis (the three main wives of Vishnu)
    This does not mean that she took these forms, it means that she who is Shridevi, has her Avesh Avatars in Bhudevi and Niladevi too.
    MahaLakshmi is the Periya Piratti (Principle wife of Narayana and Bhudevi and Niladevi are separate from her but since her qualities can be found in them too, they are said to be her Aveshas only)
    ShriLakshmi is the Aadi Shakti (Primordial Power) the Aadi Maha(Primordial Great) Lakshmi. She is was perceived by everyone as the one effulgent with her Molten Gold Complexion.
    Everyone recognized her as the Mother of the World and greeted, worshipped and eulogized her.
    Everyone welcomed her doing her Abhisheka knowing her as the Supreme Power, and she was presented with various presents to gain her grace and make her happy.
    Hence, when she was satisfied easily by the Devas and Asuras, who were her children, she blessed them with her merciful glances and everyone regained their prosperity.
    She was worshipped by Indra Dev etc. Vishnu Puran consists the famous Kamla Stotram that Indra Dev recited for her to gain her grace. |2|

    Victory, Victory and Victory be to such Shridevi Ma Lakshmi!!!!
