According to Hindu religion, Goddess Lakshmi is the Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity. The Vedas (Books of Revelations) are the foundation of Hinduism. In the Vedas, there is a recitation called “Sri Suktam” which bestows the grace of Goddess Lakshmi who chants Sri Suktam with devotion and purity. Sri Suktam is originally a part of Rig Veda. No one wrote the Vedas, so no one technically authored Sri Suktam. The word Sukta means a statement of appreciation. The recitation of Sri Suktam has been praised by the gods themselves as well as the great sages and saints that appeared on this earth. It is even said that Goddess Lakshmi may ignore any other recitation but she would never ignore the prayers through recitation of Sri Suktam . Therefore being dear to Goddess Lakshmi, Sri Suktam is very fondly chanted by a lot of people who wish to receive the blessings of the Divine Mother.
It is a wonderfully composed prayer in which the glory, radiance, beauty, divinity, motherhood, and blessings of Mother Lakshmi have been meticulously described and all forms of Lakshmi are beautifully depicted. One should habitually recite Sri Suktam so that he/she is able to overcome all the problems in life, enjoying a prosperous and happy life on the earth.
Sri Suktam gives a glorious picture of Lakshmi describing her in gorgeous terms. The hymn dwells on the brilliance and splendor of Lakshmi and describes the golden and silver ornaments she wears. It is said the mere touch of Lakshmi would give an individual cattle, horses, progeny, wealth, fame, servants and any other comforts one can name. She nourishes all the worlds and ensures there is no wants of any kind on the earth. Prosperity rules on this earth only because of her and everything about Lakshmi is splendid and amazing. Once the softly glowing one is satisfied with her devotees, she reveals herself to them and makes them worthy of all gifts and blessings.The recitation of Sri Suktam satisfies the Divine Mother to the utmost level and she showers her blessings upon her children. Hence, chant Shri Suktam and get all your wishes fulfilled.
