Translated by P.R.Ramachander
Sage Narada during one of his visits to Vaikunta asked Lord Narayana for the reason why whiles Devas and Asuras are healthy by nature, human beings suffer these numerous diseases. Then lord Narayana taught him the Indrakshi sthothra. He told Narada that by reciting this Sthothra, one can lead a disease free happy life. Sage narada taught it to Indra, who in turn taught it to Sage Purandara. It was Sage Purandara who popularized it among human beings.
Arogyatha Matha Indrakshi Sthothram
Asya Indrakshi Sthothra Maha Mandrasya, Sasi purandara rishi. Anushtup Chanda. Indrakshi Durga devatha, Lakshmi Beejam. Bhuvaneswari Sshakthi, Bhavani Keelagam, Mama Indrakshi prasad sidhyarthe Jape Viniyoga.
This Indrakshi sthothra was made known to the world by Purandara Rishi,
has been written in Anushtup meter.
The presiding deity for the sthothra is Indrakshi Durga.
The kernel of the chant is Lakshmi,
the strength behing the Manthra is Bhuvaneswari and its axis is Bhavani.
I am chanting this manthra to get the blessings of Indrakshi.

I slute Indrakshi by the thumb, Mahalakshmi by the ring finger, Maheswari by the central finger, Ambujakshi by the pointing finger and Kathyayini by the little finger and Koumari by the inside and outside of my palm.

I salute that Indrakshi,
Who has thousand eyes,
Who has a strong skin,
Who is golden in colour,
Who has long open and black hair,
Who walks with the soft sound made by her anklets,
Who has pair of busts like the pot held by the king of snakes.
Indarkshim dwibhujam devim peetha vasthra dwayanvitham, Vama hasthe vajradaraam dakshane navara pradham.
The two armed Indrakshi wears yellow cloths,
And has Vajra in her right hand and her eft hand shows protection.

I salute that Indrakshi,
Who is a young girl,
Who wears various ornaments,
Who has a smiling face,
And who is served by various Ganas.
