Maha Lakshmi Ji Ki Aarthi

Maha Lakshmi Ji Ki Aarthi
Translated by P. R. Ramachander

[Aarthis are Hindi prayers recited by common people in front of the Gods waving lamps. I have given two versions of this prayer slightly different from each other.]

1. Om Jai Laxmi Mata
Uma Rama Brahmaani, Tum ho Jag Mata,
Maiya, Tum ho Jag Mata,
Surya ChanraMa dhyaavat, Naarad Rishi gaata.
Om Jai Laxmi Mata.

You are Parvathi, Lakshmi, Saraswathi, the mother of the world,
Oh mother, you are the mother of the world,
Son and moon pray to you, sage Narada sings about you.
Om victory to mother Lakshmi.

2. Durga Roop Niranjani, Sukh Sampati Data,
Maiya Sukh Sampati Data
Jo koyee tumko dhyaataa, Ridhee Sidhee dhan paataa
Om Jai Laxmi Mata.

Oh birth less one, who takes the form of Durga, who gives pleasure and wealth,
Mother who gives pleasure and wealth,
He who meditates on you would get prosperity , power and wealth,
Om victory to mother Lakshmi

3. Jis ghar mein tu rehtee, sab sukh guna aataa,
Maiya sab sukh guna aataa,
Taap paap mit jaataa, Man naheen ghabraataa.
Om Jai Laxmi Mata

The house where you live would get all pleasures,
Mother they would get all pleasures,

4. Dhoop Deep phal meva, Ma sweekaar karo,
Maiya Ma sweekaar karo,
Gyaan prakaash karo Ma, Moha agyaan haro.
Om Jai Laxmi Mata.

Mother accept incense, light, fruits and sweets,
Mother please accept,
Make my intelligence bright, mother kill passion and ignorance,
Om victory to mother Lakshmi.

5. Maha Laxmiji ki Aarti, jo gaavey
Maiya nis din jo gaavey,
Uraananda samata, paap uttar jata.
Om Jai Laxmi Mata.

He who sings this prayer song of mother Lakshmi,
And daily if he sings it,
The happiness and contentment will increase and sins would be destroyed.
Om victory to mother Lakshmi.
