Sri Suktam Pooja at home- Friday ritual for guaranteed material success, prosperity and financial gain

Sri Suktam is a vedic sloka addressed to Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth, Prosperity and Fertility. Goddess Lakshmi, the eternal consort of Lord Narayana has been referred as ‘Sri‘ meaning the personification of auspicious and royal qualities.

Her description appears in the Sri Sukta, where she has been lauded in golden words and in glorious terms…Just as there is no difference between Power-Holder (Vishnu) and Power (Lakshmi)…She is the presiding deity of all divine manifestation.

Sri Sukta is one of the Pancha Suktam (5 Suktams), namely; Purusha suktam, Vishnu Suktam, Sri Suktam, Bhu suktam, and Nila Suktam.

Sri Suktam is recited to bring bliss to the family, to those who recite it with devout intent and discipline. It is widely believed that recitation of this powerful slokam bestows an unerring power unto the character and personality of those who recite it, and to their general well being.

The Sri Suktam is a never failing mantra to invoke prosperity, goodness, health, wealth and well being of the person as well as the whole family itself. I have personally experienced girls who were reciting Sri Suktams- getting married to good grooms, leading a happy life, boys securing good steady jobs, families coming out of problems of debts and miseries, wayward children getting corrected and excelling in studies.

Sri Suktam has the power to grant boons in the bountiful.

Significance of Sri Suktam

The presence of Sri Mahalakshmi on Lord Sri Venkateswara (at Tirumala) or Vishnu’s chest, at the Heart symbolises the embodiment of Love, from which devotion to God or Bhakti flows from. It is through Love/Bhakti or Lakshmi that the atma or soul is able to reach God or Vishnu.

Sri or Lakshmi is also the personification of the Spiritual energy within us and universe called Kundalini.  She is also called the Goddess of Fortune.

The Sri Sukta is recited during the 3-hour long Abhishek of Lord Sri Venkateswara, at the famed ancient Hill Shrine of the Tirumala Venkateswara Temple in Andhra Pradesh, India. The Abhishekam to the main deity is performed every Friday. Sri Suktam is also recited during the daily Arjitha Vasanthotsavam seva.

The Significance of the Sri Sukta

The Sri Sukta of the Veda is recited with benefit especially on Fridays, together with formal worship of the Goddess, for peace, plenty, and all-round prosperity. Lakshmi, who is usually identified as the Spouse of Vishnu, or Narayana, represents the glory and magnificence of God. Narayana and Lakshmi, actually, stand for Being and Becoming. The Creator in all His glory manifests Himself in the variety in creation.

Lakshmi is prosperity, and all the wealth of life is nothing but prosperity. All forms of happiness, satisfaction, abundance and status come under Lakshmi, the Divine Glory. The Sri Sukta is the invocation of God Himself as the great glory of His creation, His lordliness, sovereignty and supremacy.

    Dear sir .

    Yes . I do agree that recitation of sri suktham gives peace and prosperity . Even if you are in the spell of ashtama sani or sevenand half years Saturn period mere recital of sri suktham gives so much of relief from the insecurity and misery of uncertainity. Some how I feel it works on mental plane and you wouldn’t be crushed under the weight of fear and sorrow of facing the unfortune circumstances.

  3. deepmala says:

    srib sukt puja ki vidhi plz hindi me bataye

  4. I heard it is a very powerful prayer. So powerful that if it is done with even one mistake or even a slightly wrong pronoun citation , the Goddess is displeased. I personally believe this because I did it once where they told me to do it in the evening hours, with fire burning and at the very end of the 7 th friday
    I got news that I lost $ 10,000.

    • Jeyashri.G says:

  10. Poonam Sood says:

  11. shrawanee mulik says:

    can i read the sri sukta in my pregnency time & how

  12. is the samput shrisukta is most powerful for prosperity at home.

  13. There are certain stanzas in Shree Suktam which should be recited carefully. For example, there is a line like this.. Alakshmeer me nashyathaam twaam vrune.. instead of chanting as “Alakshmeer” if you chant “Lakshmeer” the meaning is reversed.. and you are praying for the destruction of your prosperity.. it is better to get someone who knows the Suktam well and ask them to recite this and learn with their help or listen to music CD and learn it.. Thanks!!

  14. please shri sukta is very long slok, So, please guide me. I recited all slok or some slected slock.

  15. Sir,
    Sri Suktam can recite any time anywhere?
