Sri Suktam - Vedic Expression of Lakshmi

  Sri Suktam is a powerful vedic chant associated with Maha Lakshmi.



Vedic chants are a profound science.I have elaborately written an article on vedic chants.Please read it here.

 To make a long elaboration short - vedic chants are the vibrations of the universe heard or perceived by sages - who taught them as mantras to disciples..

Is wealth a sin ? 

  A misconception about wealth is very much enrooted in many.They believe that spirituality and wealth  cannot come together.This is a false conception.




  Wealth is wealth.Nothing wrong or sinful about it.Go on and make wealth.Infuse your spirituality with wealth.

   With wealth,you can serve the society in multi-folds of manner.Becoming a pauper does not secure you a God's assistant job

Certain spiritual icons portray themselves as poor and beggar-like for different purposes.Some expressed renunciation.Some simply had no interest to make wealth.


  The essence is that,none of them were against wealth.They just conveyed the message on non-attachment through different acts.It was not that Buddha or Swami Vivekananda were against wealth.

 The only point to be noted here is not to get attached to wealth ! The problem does not lie with the money,but your attachment to it.


  Attachment can happen with just about anything - humans, food,animals, memories , your ex... just anything ! 



  If you can just remain unattached yet involved,life can be wonderful. You can manifest wealth and channel it for good.
 Be like a lotus leaf - Ever in contact with water but not wet by it.

Be actively involved with the world,but not influenced or affected by it. Play your role well on Earth, strive to earn Godhood and spread the experience around.




  So go on,learn Sri Suktam,chant it, meditate on it, and fill your life with the presence of Maha Lakshmi.Prosperity is knocking at your door.Jai.
