श्री लक्ष्मी स्तुति — इन्द्र कृत

इन्द्र उवाच

नमस्तस्यै सर्वभूतानां जननीमब्जसम्भवाम्।
श्रियमुनिन्द्रपद्माक्षीं विष्णुवक्षःस्थलस्थिताम्॥

Indra states

Salutations! Mother of life who in `Amrit Manthan’ clearly, Did appear and glow from water churned unmistakeably,
Your eyes are beautiful just like a lotus ever exquisitely,
You reside on the chest of Lord Vishnu most positively.

पद्मालयां पद्मकरां पद्मपत्रनिभेक्षणाम्।
वन्दे पद्ममुखीं देवीं पद्मनाभप्रियाम्यहम्॥
त्वं सिद्धिस्त्वं स्वधा स्वाहा सुधा त्वं लोकपावनी।
सन्धया रात्रिः प्रभा भूतिर्मेधा श्रद्धा सरस्वती॥
I sing your praise who is in a forest of lotus plainly,
With lotus eyes, face, navel and Vishnu’s dear truly,
You are magical-knowledge, divine-nectar but surely,
Purifier, night, light, intellect, knowledge, prosperity.

यज्ञविद्या महाविद्या गुह्यविद्या च शोभने।
आत्मविद्या च देवि त्वं विमुक्तिफलदायिनी॥
आन्वीक्षिकी त्रयीवार्ता दण्डनीतिस्त्वमेव च।
सौम्यासौम्येर्जगद्रूपैस्त्वयैतद्देवि पूरितम्॥
Shobhna! You Yagya, deepest secret knowledge truly,
Goddess! You liberate us from mundane-existence surely,
You the three Veda, debate, penalty, logical philosophy,
You fill the world with serene, not-serene forms wholly.

का त्वन्या त्वमृते देवि सर्वयज्ञमयं वपुः।
अध्यास्ते देवदेवस्य योगिचिन्त्यं गदाभृतः॥
त्वया देवि परित्यक्तं सकलं भुवनत्रयम्।
विनष्टप्रायमभवत्त्वयेदानीं समेधितम्॥
You like divine-nectar seated on Vishnu’s chest truly,
You in all sacrifices, with mace — meditated by Yogis,
If discarded by You, worlds near destruction certainly,
You restore them with Your grace giving them serenity.

दाराः पुत्रास्तथाऽऽगारं सुहृद्धान्यधनादिकम्।
भवत्येतन्महाभागे नित्यं त्वद्वीक्षणान्नृणाम्॥
शरीरारोग्यमैश्वर्यमरिपक्षक्षयः सुखम्।
देवि त्वदृष्टिदृष्टानां पुरुषाणां न दुर्लभम्॥
O highly fortunate Goddess! By Your glance only,
Man gets wives, sons, friends, relatives, and luxuries,
The men, who have not been graced by your eyes truly,
Lose health, wealth, comfort and weakness of enemies.

त्वमम्बा सर्वभूतानां देवदेवो हरिः पिता।
त्वयैतद्विष्णुना चाम्ब जगद्वयाप्तं चराचरम्॥
मनःकोशस्तथा गोष्ठं मा गृहं मा परिच्छदम्।
मा शरीरं कलत्रं च त्यजेथाः सर्वपावनि॥
You are the mother and Vishnu the father of worlds surely,
And this universe is manifestations of you and Vishnu fully,
Purifier of all! May you not leave the treasures lonely,
The cow-shed, home, properties, consort, and the body.

मा पुत्रान्मा सुहृद्वर्गान्मा पशून्मा विभूषणम्।
त्यजेथा मम देवस्य विष्णोर्वक्षःस्थलाश्रये॥
सत्त्वेन सत्यशौचाभ्यां तथा शीलादिभिर्गुणैः।
त्यज्यन्ते ते नराः सद्यः सन्त्यक्ता ये त्वयाऽमले॥
You seated on the chest of Vishnu, stay with the sons totally, The well-wishers, the animal-property, and ornaments wholly,
O Amala! Those men, who have given up the Sattva purity,
Truth, cleanliness, serenity are driven away by you instantly.

त्वयाऽवलोकिताः सद्यः शीलाद्यैरखिलैर्गुणैः।
कुलैश्वर्यैश्च युज्यन्ते पुरुषा निर्गुणा अपि॥
सश्लाघ्यः सगुणी धन्यः स कुलीनः स बुद्धिमान्।
स शूरः सचविक्रान्तो यस्त्वया देवि वीक्षितः॥
When glanced upon by you all these qualities immediately,
Of serenity and splendor of lineage get affixed completely,
Goddess! That who is seen blessed by you is praise-worthy,
Happy, in good lineage, wise, brave, glorious,full of qualities.

सद्योवैगुण्यमायान्ति शीलाद्याः सकला गुणाः।
पराङ्गमुखी जगद्धात्री यस्य त्वं विष्णुवल्लभे॥
न ते वर्णयितुं शक्तागुणञ्जिह्वाऽपि वेधसः।
प्रसीद देवि पद्माक्षि माऽस्मांस्त्याक्षीः कदाचन॥
Vishnu’s dear you have all the virtues and formless qualities,
Averting others you became the Mother of the world certainly,
The tongue is not capable to describe your virtues and qualities,
Lotus eyed goddess, shower me bliss and happiness unendingly.
