I am getting several messages for readings. I have finished my karmic quota so will not do them anymore. If I were still doing readings, I wouldn’t have started writing this blog! I simply wouldn’t have the time to write. But if there is something which can help understand your horoscope better, I will write on it, in the spirit of explaining the thing.
But for those who have genuine problems the one perfect remedy for all your problems is Shri-Sukta. It is from the Rg- Ved. We think we are unique, but we are all the same, we all have very limited types of problems, health, wealth, relationships, litigations, profession, children, education. All these can be covered easily by this one all-round remedy. You have to do this yourself with the intention and the genuine desire to come out of the problem. Self-pity and expecting that someone else will pull you out of your problem never works. But luckily for us our ancient Rishis have given us so many tools from Jyotish to the Sukta.
This is the link to the perfect text of the Shri-Sukta, the verses/ shlok from 1 to 15 are the Shri Sukta. Verse 16 is the phala-shruti, ie it tells you what you will get if you recite this Sukta. (The remaining verses are Laxmi Sukta, that is a different sukta.) For those who can read and pronounce Sanskrit words, recite it. Will take 2 mins of your time. But most of us cannot read our own mother tongue, the Devbhasha Samskrutam, so here is the Shri sukta recited perfectly by the singer Uma Mohan. (Do buy this same track, here the pronunciation is perfect, there are no mistakes). She follows the Shri Sukta with the Mahalaxmi Gayatri. Very beautiful. You can listen to this if you cannot read. Will take 4 mins of your time.
When to recite or listen to it? Twice a day is ideal, once after you have your bath in the morning and once at evening twilight. If you feel like it you can listen to it on a loop throughout the day, it is an energy boost. Some of my businessmen clients play it on a loop in their shops as it is in itself Prosperity, Shri श्री.
Here you are invoking the power of the highest form of Prosperity श्री to come to you in every way possible. You are requesting Shri to enter your body, mind and soul. It is a very intense and deep intention and always works for your benefit. Highly auspicious in every way possible. ‘Shri’ means the goddess of wealth, Devi Laxmi, the active energy of the Satva-Gun, wealth, beauty, radiance, splendour, welfare, power, grace, shine, success, fortune, process, symbol, might, dignity, etc. All the meanings are extremely positive on all levels.
Shri- Sukta will work for all your problems, try it for 21days with full intention and see for yourself.
Next, if you have typical problems, ie if you know what your exact problem is and what you want. Then you can recite one verse from the Ashta-Laxmi stotra to add specific direction to your Shri-sukta rendition. There are 8 verses in the Ashta-Laxmi stotra, one for each of the following aspects of Devi Laxmi. The Shri-Sukta works well on its own and quite powerfully too, this one verse would be an additional thing if you want to do it. Or you can listen to the entire Stotra. Here is a recitation by the singer Gayatri, do buy it if you like it. She has sung it beautifully, you can listen to the entire stotra on the way to your office if you feel like it, rather than movie songs which have no energy.
- 1st verse is for Aadi Laxmi – for spiritual progress and moksh
- 2nd verse is for Dhanya Laxmi – for health, removal of poverty, for getting house/properties, medical emergencies
- 3rd verse is for Dhairya Laxmi – for courage for facing a particular situation, intelligence, calmness eg before an interview, that flash of inspiration when you are stuck in work, issues in profession,
- 4th verse is for Gaja Laxmi – this gives sheer power, physical/ emotional/ mental
- 5th verse is for Santaan Laxmi – for children, for help during conception, pregnancy, delivery and for anything to do with children
- 6th verse is for Vijay Laxmi – all round successes, eg during litigations, court cases, disputes
- 7th verse is for Vidya Laxmi – for successes in exams or in learning technical subjects, when you start learning a new topic, to make what you learn work for you
- 8th verse is for Dhan Laxmi – for money and material assets, prosperity in marriage
This will work for everyone irrespective of anything. The Sukta and the Stotra are both in Sanskrit so have inherent power, they are essentially mantra. These will not cause harm in any way to anyone. But they will not give you what is not yours, ie cannot be used to cheat others or to steal what is rightfully other’s stuff. Do it only if you are convinced of your right and positive intention.
If you want to, in addition, you can keep a small silver moorti of Devi Laxmi in your puja. Or an image. Or if you are more into geometry, an image of the Shri Chakra. At least keep such images as your phone’s wallpaper, rather than something random. It is perfect prosperity. This will help channelise the energies faster into your own self into your own life, rebalancing it.
