Part of the Padma Purana.


O Mahamaya, abode of fortune,who art worshipped by the Devas, I salute Thee;

O Mahalakshmi, wielder of conch, disc and mace, obeisance to Thee. My salutations to Thee, who rides the Garuda and art a terror to Asura Kola;

O Devi Mahalakshmi, remover of all miseries, my obeisance to Thee.

O Devi Mahalakshmi,who knowest all, giver of all boons,a terror to all the wicked, remover of all sorrow, obeisance to Thee.

O Devi, giver of intelligence and success and of worldly enjoyment and liberation, Thou hast always the mystic symbols as Thy form, O Mahalakshmi, obeisance to Thee.

O Devi, Maheshwari, without beginning or an end, O Primeval Energy, born of Yoga, O Mahalakshmi, obeisance to Thee.

O Mahalakshmi,who art both gross and subtle, most terrible, great power, great prosperity and great remover of all sins, obeisance to Thee.

O Devi, seated on the lotus, who art the Supreme Brahman, the great Lord and Mother of the universe, O Mahalakshmi, obeisance to Thee.

O Devi, robed in white garments and decked with various kinds of ornaments, Thou art the mother of the universe and its support, O Mahalakshmi, obeisance to Thee.

This hymn to the great Goddess of Wealth, if read with devotion, will bestow all success, will grant all worldly position. If always read once a day, great sins will be destroyed. If always read twice a day, wealth and prosperity will ensure. If always read three times a day, the great enemy(ego) will be destroyed. Mahalakshmi will be ever pleased with that auspicious one.
