Sri Sukta

From Sahaja Yoga Encyclopedia

This hymn to the Goddess in the forms of Sri and Lakshmi is appended to the Khila Sukta in the Rig Veda.


I resort to Lakshmi for shelter in this world, Who is beautiful like the moon, shining brightly, Who is blazing with renown, Who is adored even by the gods, Who is highly magnanimous, and grand like the lotus. May my misfortunes perish! I surrender myself to You, O Thou, who are resplendent like the Sun! (verses 5-6)
