Sri Lakshmi Narayana Hrudayam
Translated By P.R.Ramachander
This great prayer has two distinct parts viz Narayana Hrudayam and Lakshmi Hrudayam and is found in the Atharva Rahasya (The secret Atharva). For thousands of years this great prayer was kept as secret because of the instructions in the prayer itself instruct that it should not be taught indiscriminately.   The proper method of reading it is to first read Narayana Hrudayam, then Lakshmi Hrudayam and then again Narayana Hrudayam. This stotra should be received from a Guru who is able to empower the mantra as well as teach how it should be chanted. 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 pranams 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, the benefits 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 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 chinthayama
I 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.

Phala Sruthi Effect of reading
27.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 Narayana Are read or heard daily, it would make Goddess Lakshmi live permanently be there.
28.Narayanasya hrudayam sarvabheeshta phala pradham,
Lakshmi hrudayakam stotram yadhi chaithadwina krutham,
29.Thath phalam nish phalam proktham Lakshmi krudhyathi sarvadha, Yethad sankalidham stotram sarvabheeshta phala pradham.
The Narayana Hrudayam which would fulfill all one’s desires,
If Lakshmi Hrudayam is read immediately after it,
But would not lead to any result as Goddess Lakshmi would otherwise get angry,
But if they are read together, all desires would be fulfilled.
30.Japeth Sankalitham kruthwa sarvabheeshtamavapnuyath, Narayanasya Hrudayam aadhou japthwa Thatha param.
31.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 spiruts and ghosts.
37.Bhrugu vare thadha rather poojayeth pusthaka dhwayam,
Sarvadha sarvadha sthuthyam gopayethg sadhayeth sudhee,
Gopanaath sadhanaa loke dhanyo bhavathi thathwatha.
