Shri Ashta Lakshmi Stotra

This is yet another Goddess Lakshmi stotra that is recited by many during Dasara. The tune is just like Mahishasura Mardini Stotra. Ashta Lakshmi, are a group of eight Hindu goddesses, who preside over eight sources of wealth and thus represent the powers of Lakshmi. Thus, the ‘Ashta Lakshmi’ are considered secondary manifestations of the Goddess Lakshmi. “Wealth” does not mean just money, in the context of Ashta-Lakshmi it means prosperity, good health, knowledge, strength, progeny, and power, which of course we all need more than anything else in this world.
