All the virtues collect themselves where you have your dwelling ; with your grace and favour even the impossible becomes possible without causing any nervous agita%on.

No sacrice can be performed without you; no one can obtain any garment; it is from you that one obtains ones sustenance .

O! daughter of the Ocean of Milk and the beauteous temple of all propi%ous virtues, you are verily a living mass of all fourteen gems with which none else is endowed .

Whosoever hymns this prayer to Lakshmi is purged of his sins and experiences the ecstasy of joy.

By Pandit Shardha Ram Phillauri (1837 1881)

Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people, Dispenser of India's des%ny. Thy name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sind, Gujarat and Maratha, Of the Dravida and Orissa and Bengal; It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas, mingles in the music of Jamuna and Ganges and is chanted by the waves of the Indian Ocean. They pray for thy blessings and sing thy praise. The saving of all people waits in thy hand, Thou dispenser of India's des%ny. Victory, victory, victory, Victory to thee.
