Lakshmi Narayana Hrudayam Stotram.pdf



Sri Lakshmi Narayana Hrudayam[Heart of Lakshmi and Narayana]Translated by P. R. RamachanderIntroductionThis great prayer has two distinct parts viz Narayana Hrudayam and Lakshmi Hrudayam and occurs in a book called Atharva Rahasya [the secret Atharva]. For thousands of years this great prayer was kept as extremely secret as the prayer itself tells that it should not be taught indiscriminately. With the opening up of Hinduism, this book is available now. The stotras have been published in Sanskrit as well as Tamil by Lifco Publishers, Chennai. An extensive commentary of this great work has been done by a team of great Vaishnavite scholars headed by Dr. Saroja Ramanujam: www.ibiblio.org/sadagopan/ahobilavalli/lakshminarayanahridayam.pdfMy attempt in translation is based on the book published by Lifco Publishers with lot of help from the translation and commentary of Dr. Saroja Ramanujam.The book has two parts viz Narayana Hrudayam and Lakshmi Hrudayam. It is told in the book itself that the proper method of reading it is to first read Narayana Hrudayam, then Lakshmi Hrudayam and then again Narayana Hrudayam. It is suggested that these should be got from a great Guru. If this is not possible, it would be better to go to a temple where there is a Sannidhi of Swami Hayagreevar along with Lakshmi, offer salutations and create a belief in your mind that you have learnt it from that God i. e. assume that God is your Guru.In the last stanzas of this great work, the benefits of which would accrue on reading this prayer, is mentioned. Apart from being showered all types of wealth, it also is capable of making timid children intelligent.I have included the Dhyana, Nyasa etc from the Lifco publication. I do not know the correct way in doing them. So if you are going to chant them it would be better to know the procedure from a Vedic Scholar. There is no harm to leave them out or read them without any actions.NyasamAsya Lakshmi Narayana Hrudaya stothra maha manthrasya,Bharghavan rishi,Anushtup Chanda,Lakshmi Narayano devatha.Narayana preethyartham jape viniyogaFor the great prayer called "Lakshmi Narayana's Heart",The sage is Bhargava, the meter is Anushtup,The God addressed is Lakshmi as well as Narayana,And this is being chanted to please Lord NarayanaKara NyasaNarayana Param jyothirrithi Angushtabhyam Namah,Nara yana Param Brahmethi tharjaneebhyam Namah,Narayana paro deva ithi madhyamabhyam Namah,Narayana param dhamithi anamikabhyam Namah,Narayana paro Dharma ithi Kanishtikabhyam Namah,Viswam Narayana ithi kara thala kara prushtabhyam NamahAnga NyasaNarayana Par am jyothirrithi Hrudayata Namah,Nara yana Param Brahmethi Sirase swaha,Narayana paro deva ithi Shikhayai voushat,Narayana param dhamithi kavachaya hum,Narayana paro Dharma ithi Nethrabhyam voushat,Viswam Narayana ithi Asthraya phat,Bhoorbaswarom ithi Dig BandaDhyanam (Meditation)Udhyad adithya sankasam peethavasam chathur bhujam,Sanka Chakra gadha pani dyayo Lakshmi pathim harim.I meditate on Lord Hari, who shines like the morning Sun,Who wears yellow cloths, who has four hands,Who holds conch, wheel and mace in his hands.Trilokya adhara chakram thadhu pari kamatam thathra chanantha bhogi,Than madhye bhoomi padma angusa shikara dalam karnika bhootha merum,Thathrathyam santha murthi mani maya makutam kudaloth bhasithangam,Lakshmi narayanakhyam sarasija nayanam sathatham chinthayamaI always meditate on Lakshmi and Narayana, who are peaceful,Who wear gem studded crowns with shining ear globes.Who are the basic axis of the world, sitting on the tortoise,Which leads to endless pleasures and are located on a lotus,Which has a main petal which is like the goad over the,Pericarp of the lotus sitting on it like Mount Meru.Asya Narayana Hrudaya stothra maha manthrasya,Brahma rishi,Anushtup Chanda,Narayano devatha.Narayana preethyartham jape viniyoga.For the great prayer called "Narayana's Heart",The sage is Brahma, the meter is Anushtup,The God addressed is Narayana,And this is being chanted to please Lord Narayana.Sri Narayana Hrudayam1.

Prathana Dasakam chaiva moolashtaka matha param,Ya padeth srunuyan nithyam, thasya Lakshmi sthira bhaved.If the ten verses of prayer as well as the basic octet describing NarayanaAre read or heard daily, it would make Goddess Lakshmi live permanently be there.28.

Lakshmi hrudayakam stotram Japen Narayanam puna,Punar Narayanam japthwa punar Lakshminutheem japeth.Reading them together would lead to fulfillment of all desires,First Narayana Hrudayam should be chanted and then,The prayer called Lakshmi Hrudayam chanted and later again,Narayana Hrudayam should be chanted to get blessings of Lakshmi.32. Thdwad homadhikam kuryath yethad sankalitham shubham,Yevam madhye dwivarena japeth sankalitham ashubham.Similarly it would be beneficial that they are read together,Even while performing Homa for reading Narayana Hrudayam,Reading it twice without Lakshmi Hrudayam in the middle is inauspicious.33. Lakshmi hrudayake stotre sarva manyath prakasitham,Sarvan kamanavapnothi aadhi vyadhi bhayam hareth.The Lakshmi Hrudayam is completely given now onwards,And this would fulfill desires and remove worry, diseases and fear.34. Gopyamethad sada kuryath na sarvathra prakasayed,Ithi guhyathamam sasthram proktham Brahmadhibhi puraa.This prayer should be kept secret and should not be told to every one,As this is a very secret treatise was expounded in ancient times by Brahma.35. Lakshmi hrudaya prokthena vidhinaa sadhayeth sudhee,Thasmad sarva prayathnenasadhayeth gopayeth sudhee.The rules as told in the Lakshmi Hrudaya should be observed,And one should take all efforts to keep them as secret.36. Yathraithath pusthakam thishteh, Lakshmi Narayanathmakam,Bhootha paischa Vetala Bhayam naivathu sarvadha.Where this book about Lakshmi and Narayana is there,There would not be any fear by all evil spirits and ghosts.37. Bhrugu vare thadha rather poojayeth pusthaka dhwayam,Sarvadha sarvadha sthuthyam gopayethg sadhayeth sudhee,Gopanaath sadhanaa loke dhanyo bhavathi thathwatha.These two books should be worshipped on Friday night,And always and always the prayer should be secretly guarded,And by keeping it secret one would definitely get blessed.Ithi Atharva rahasye Uthara bhage Sri Narayana Hrudayam samapthamThus ends the book called Narayana Hrudaya from the later part of Atharva Rahasya.Sri Lakshmi HrudayamHari Om, Asya sri aadhyadhi sri Maha Lakshmi hrudaya stotra maha manthrasya,Bharghava Rishi, anushtubadhi Chanda,Aadhyadhi Sri Maha Lakshmi prasada sidhyarthe jape viniyogaHari om, for the great prayer called "Maha Lakshmi's heart", the sage is Bhargava, meter is Anushtup and others; this is being chanted to please Goddess Maha Lakshmi.Srim Bheejam, Hreem Shakthi, iym keelakam,Aadhyadhi Sri Maha Lakshmi prasada sidhyarthe jape viniyogaThe root is Sreem, the power is Hreem, Iym is the stopper And this is being chanted to please Goddess Maha Lakshmi.Om "Aadhyadhi Sri Maha Lakshmi Devathayai Namah"Hrudaye Sreem bheejayai Namah "Guhye", "Hreem Shakthyai Namah", Padayo "Iym Balayai Namah" Moordhadhi pada paryantham vinyaseth.Om Sreem, Hreem Iym kara thala parswayo, Srim Angushtabhyam Namah,Hreem Tharjaneebhyam Namah Iym Madhyamabhyam Namah,Sreem Anamikabhyam Namah Hreem Kanishtikabhyam Namah,Iym kara thala kara prushtabhyam NamahSReem hrudayaya Namah, Hreem Sirase swaha, Iym shikayai Voushat,Sreem Kavachaya Namah, Hreem kanishtikabhyam Namah,Iym kara thala kara prushtabhyam Namah.Atha DhyanamHastha dwayena kamala dharayanthim swaleelaya,Hara noopura samyuktham Maha lakshmim vichintheyeth 1I think about Maha Lakshmi, who holds lotus flowers in her two hands,And, who wears necklaces and anklets.Kouseya peetha vasana maravinda nethram,Padma dwayabhya varodhyatha padma hastham,Udhyach sankha sadrusaam paramanga samstham,Dhyayed vidheesanath pada yugaam janithrim. 2I meditate on the two feet of mother determining our fate,Who sits on a seat covered by silk, who has lotus like eyes,Who shows protection and blessing by her lotus like hands,And, whose entire body looks like the newly emerging conch,Manthra [Chant]Sri Lakshmi kamala dharinyai Simha vahinyai swaha.I pray Lakshmi, who holds lotus flower and rides on a lion[This should be chanted 10 or 16 or 32 or 56 or 108 times.]Peetha vasthram suvarnangim padma hastha dwayanvithaam,Lakshmim dhyathvethi manthrena sa bhaved prithvi pathi. 3He, who prays Goddess Lakshmi, who wears yellow silk,Who holds two lotus flowers in her two hands,With the above chant would become a king.Mathulunga Gadha kete panou pathrascha vibhrathi,Vaga lingascha maanascha vibhrathi nrupa moordhani 4She shines holding a citrus fruit, mace, and a shield in her hands,She shines on the forehead of the king, who respects Vaaga Linga.Om Sreem Hreem Iym1.
