ShriVallabhAcharya wrote MadhurAshtakam on ShriKrishn. It had eight paragraphs describing the various attributes of Bhagwaan, but it had only one adjective that is 'Madhur' or 'Sweet' each line ending with MadhurAdhiPaterAkhilam Madhuram' meaning everything is sweet about the Lord of Sweetness.
Just like a lover finds everything about his loved one as sweet, his speech, his voice, his gait, his smile, his hands, his feet, his eyes, his eye movements and everything, similarly did Shri VallabhAcharya wrote about our Bhagwan with whom he was in love with.
It is veryyyyyyyyyyy sweet to hear and recite. In fact it is said to be the favourite hymn of Bhagwan ShriKrishna himself! No wonder it is a gem in itself!
My best friend and my sister @aarsha_ns di told me to write something similar on ShriRaam. Since I do not know Sanskrit, I gave my naive attempt to write something like this in Hindi for ShriRaam Bhagwan with eight paragraphs using the adjective Madhur in each line for each of his attribute and the last line for each para being 'Akhil Madhur SiyaNaath', that is 'The Lord of Siya is entirely sweet' ❤
And on this occasion of Dussehra or Vijaya Dashami, I am sharing it with everyone. Let's celebrate the sweetness of the King and Queen of Sweetness- ShriSeethaRaam!!!
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.
