Sadyaḥ Phaladā Lakṣmistava Hṛdayam (सद्यः फलदा लक्ष्मिस्तव हृदयम्)

 

Prologue :- The instant money bestowing hymn Śrī Sadyaḥ Phaladā Lakṣmīstava Hṛdayam can be recited by those in dire needs of material wealth. This hymn is also very beneficial for spiritual growth as well. This is a prayer imploring Śrī Lakṣmī to bless us and shower Her grace and abundance upon us. Best results are obtained when combined with mantra japa of Śrī Lakṣmī/Kamalā.

Praise be to the Divine Mother Śrī Mahālakṣmī, the eternal, glorious one, the bringer of auspiciousness and good fortune, Whose worship accomplishes completion of all tasks, fulfillment of all desires and brings immense happiness and prosperity, to the worshipper.

नारायनेण सह मां कृपा दृष्ट्यावलोकय ॥ २ ॥

Oh Divine Mother Śrī Mahālakṣmī, residing with your consort Śrī Nārāyaṇa in the fabulous Vaikuṇṭha, Please make haste and together grace us with your presence and bless us.

Vaikuṇṭha is that which is beyond all measures – the infinitum. In this context, Śrī Nārāyaṇa and Śrī Lakṣmī represent the manifested formless Static Super-Consciousness - Nirguṇa Brahman and the Dynamic Super-Consciousness with attributes - Saguṇa Brahman.

Oh Divine Mother Śrī Mahālakṣmī, residing with your consort Śrī Vāsudeva in the Satyaloka – the realm of the Absolute Truth, Please grace us together with your consort and grant us all our wishes.

Śrī Vāsudeva and Śrī Lakṣmī represent the Absolute Truth of the Super-Consciousness that manifests Itself into various forms and is responsible for the Creation, Preservation and Destruction of all Existence. This also refers to the turiya state of emptiness and full of bliss.

Śvetadvīpa could be equated with the Sahasrāra/Crown cakra, with the Divine Couple (Static and Dynamic Super-Consciousness) descending into this cakra and granting us immense happiness, light and clarity.

Oh Divine Mother Śrī Mahālakṣmī, you have emerged from the ocean of nectar called Kṣīrābdha. Please grace us with your presence immediately and shower your mercy with your glance. Your mere glance is capable of bestowing all benefits and changing our fate instantly!

The reference can be made to the ājñā (third-eye) cakra and the nectar/aṃṛta is the cerebral fluid that gets discharged from the pineal gland during higher states of meditation. This is also the activation of this cakra.

 Oh Divine Mother Śrī Mahālakṣmī, You are golden hued and are an ocean of knowledge, material and spiritual. You represent all abundance and prosperity. You are complete in every respect. Please do not delay any further and manifest immediately before us and shower your blessings upon us.

An ocean of knowledge sprouts up with the opening of the ājñā cakra. This could help us manifest all our wishes.

Oh Divine Mother Śrī Mahālakṣmī, Please remain with us and stay unmoved. Oh flawless gentle Lotus born Divine Mother, please be pleased with us and bestow your benevolent grace upon us and fulfill all our wishes.
