[Mahalakshmi, who is the consort of Vishnu is worshipped as goddess of wealth by the Hindus. In the beginning of creation she took form from the left side of Vishnu and was later born again from the sea of milk, when the devas churned it for getting nectar. She resides on the chest of Maha Vishnu as Sri Vatsa. It was she who took birth as Seetha and Rukmani. This very simple prayer is very ancient and has been chanted by generations for solving all their problems.]

Phala Sruthi

Maha lakmyashtakam stotram,
Ya padeth Bhakthiman nara,
Sarva sidhi mavapnothi,
Rajyam prapnothi sarvadha.

Those men who read this octet praising Mahalakshmi,
With devotion and discipline,
Would make all powers as his own,
And also would attain the kingdom for ever.

Yeka kale paden nithyam, maha papa vinasanam,
Dwi kale paden nithyam Dana dhanya samanvitha,
Tri kalam paden nithyam Maha shathru vinasanam,
Maha Lakshmir Bhaven nithyam Prasanna, varada Shubha.

If this is read daily once, great sins committed would be destroyed,
If this is read twice daily, you would be blessed with wealth and grains,
If this is read thrice daily, your great enemies would be destroyed,
And the goddess Maha Lakshmi would be with you,
With happiness, with blessings and with good tidings.
