Colonial Discourse and the Suffering of Indian American Children Book Cover.webp

In this book, we analyze the psycho-social consequences faced by Indian American children after exposure to the school textbook discourse on Hinduism and ancient India. We demonstrate that there is an intimate connection—an almost exact correspondence—between James Mill’s colonial-racist discourse (Mill was the head of the British East India Company) and the current school textbook discourse. This racist discourse, camouflaged under the cover of political correctness, produces the same psychological impacts on Indian American children that racism typically causes: shame, inferiority, embarrassment, identity confusion, assimilation, and a phenomenon akin to racelessness, where children dissociate from the traditions and culture of their ancestors.

This book is the result of four years of rigorous research and academic peer-review, reflecting our ongoing commitment at Hindupedia to challenge the representation of Hindu Dharma within academia.

Lakshmi Sahasranama Stotram

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

Translated By P.R.Ramachander

This stotra is from the Skanda Purana where it is being documented as being taught by Sage Sanath Kumara to a set of 12 sages. Here, it also states that Goddess Lakshmi states that even if this stotra is chanted without belief, she would stay for ever in their clan.

Another Maha Lakshmi Sahasranamam occurs in Brahma Purana in the chapter of description of Kashmir in the chapter on Hiranya Garbha Hrudaya.

One thousand thirty three names are mentioned in the source of this translation, though in the text of the sahasra nama it is mentioned that the names are 1,008 names. Some obvious replications have been merged. Another peculiarity of this publication is that a few prayers to Goddess Lakshmi have been added in the middle of the sahasranamam and have also been included in the Namavali.

Namnaam ashta sahasram cha broohi Gargya, Mahamathe,
Mahalakshmyaa Maha devyaa bhukthi mukthyartha sidhaye

Oh great sage Gargya please tell that the one thousand eight names,
Of Goddess Mahalakshmi would lead to enjoyment, wealth and salvation.

Sanathkumara massenam dwadasahithya sannibham,
Apruchan Yogino bhkthyaa yogi nama artha sidhaye.

Addressing Sanathkumara equal in shine to the twelve suns,
As per the request of the twelve sages, sage Garga asked.

Gargya uvacha[edit]

Sarva loukeeka karmebhyo vimukthaanaam hithaaya vai,
Bhukthi mukthi pradhamjaya manu broohi dhayanidhe.

Oh treasure of mercy tell those names that lead enjoyment and salvation,
Which would lead to the good of those who do not do bad deeds,
And are not attached to those results of the deeds that they do.

Sanathkumara, Bhagawan, Sarvagno asi viseshatha,
Asthikya sidhaye nrunaam kshipradharmartha sadhanam.

Oh Sanathkumara, Oh God, you have great specialized knowledge,
Tell me the way for humans to get devotion and,
Also their speedily getting Dharma,Artha(Money), Kama(desires) and Moksha(Salvation).

Khidhyanthi manava sarve dhana bhaavena kevalam,
Sidhyanthi dhanino anyasya naiva Dharmatha Kamana.

Humans are mainly suffering due to the scarcity of wealth,
For they can never attain Dharma and wealth without money.

Daridhrya dwamsini nama kena vidhyaa prakeerthithaa,
Kena vaa Brhama vidhyapi kena mruthyu vinasini.

Who is being sung about as one who removes poverty?
Please tell about her who is called knowledge,
Knowledge of the ultimate and one who destroys death.

Sarvaasaam saara bhoothaikaa vidhyaanaam kerrthithaa,
Prathyaksha sidhidhaa Brahman, Thamachakshwa Dhayanidhe.

Oh Brahman, please tell us about her who is the essence of all knowledge,
And who gives results of all action done instantaneously.

Sanathkumara Uvacha[edit]

Sadhu prushtam Maha Bhagaa, sarva loka hithoushinaa,
Mahathaamesha dharmascha nanthyeshamithi may mathi.

Oh great one, you have well asked for the benefit of all the world,
I feel that such a thought will occur only to great ones and not to others.

Brahma Vishnu Mahadeva, mahendradhi mahathmabhi,
Samproktham kadhayamyadhya Lakshmi nama sahasrakam.

I am telling you the thousand names of Goddess Lakshmi,
Which has been praised by Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and alo Indra,

Yathyocharana mathrena daridryoth muchyathe nara.
Kim punastha japajjapi sarveshta arthanavapnuyath.

Human being escapes by telling only its name,
And is it necessary to tell that he would great wealth,
If the entire thing is chanted with devotion.

Who has lotus like eyes, who lives in lotus,
Who has a pretty face like a fully open lotus and who holds a lotus.

Sanathkumara Uvacha[edit]

Evam sthuthaa Mahalakshmir, Brahma Rudhradhibhir surai,
Namadhbirrathrair dheenaicha nisSwathvair Bhoga varjithai,

Jyeshtaa Jyeshtaischa ni srekai samsara swa parayanai,
Vishnu pathni dadhou theshaam darasanam drushti darpanam

Sarath poornendu kotyabha davala panga veekshanai,
Sarvaan Sathwa samavishtaan Chakre hrushta varam dhadhou.

Mahalakshmi who is the consort of Lord Vishnu,
Glowing coolly like billions of full moons of autumn,
 Thus praised by Brahma, Rudhra and other devas,
Gave new enthusiasm to the devas by her very cool glance,
And with heart full of joy gave several boons,
To them as well as to those who salute her,
To those in pain, those depressed and those who have lost everything.

Maha Lakshmir Uvacha[edit]

Naamnaam sashta sahasram may pramadhadwapi ya sakruth,
Keerthaye that kule sathyam vasamya chandra tharakam.

Even in the clans of those people who sing these.,., 1008 names,
With out interest or with devotion, I promise,
That I would be there as long as Sun and moon are there.

Kim punar niyamaa japthumadaika charanasya cha,
Mathruvath sanukapaham poshakee syam aharnisam

Is it necessary for me tell that in case of those,
Who read this with devotion and having surrendered to me,
I as a mother with pity on them, I would look after them day and night.

Mannama sthavathaam loke durlabham nasthi chinthitham,
Math prasadena sarvepi swadweshtaa arthamavapnuyath.

To those who chant my names, there is nothing difficult in this world,
For due to my grace they would get all that they desire easily.

Luptha Vaishnava dharmasya mad vruthe theshwawa keerthina,
Bhakthi prapathi heenasya vandhyo naamanaam sthavopi may.

Even those who do not follow the Dharma of the followers of Vishnu,
And those who did not follow my penance and do not have devotion to me,
Can chant my names with the thought that I should be saluted.

Thasmad avasyamthair doshai viheena papa varjitha,
Japeth sashta sahasram may naamnaam prathyaham aadharaath.

They should get rid of these blemishes and definitely,
Chant the.,., 1008 names along with great devotion and respect.

Sakshadalakshmi puthropi durbhaghyo apya alaso api vaa,
Aprayathnaapi Moodapi vikala pathithopi cha
Avasyam prapnuyath bhagyam math prasadena kevalam,
Spruheya machiraa ddhevaa varadhanaya japinaa.

Even those children of the poor, man besieged by bad luck,
Man without initiative, Man who does not do work,
Man who is handicapped and also the own who is down trodden,
Will all definitely become lucky due to my grace,
For I am waiting to shower blessings on such a one.

Dadhami Sarvam isharthaa Lakshmithi smarathaam dhruvam

I would fulfill all the wishes of him who even thinks of Lakshmi.

Sanathkumara Uvacha[edit]

Ithyukthwaa andhardhadhe Lakshmi Vaishnavi Bhagawat kala

Saying this Lalshmi who is a part of Lord Vishnu disappeared.

Ishtaapoortha c cha sukrutham bhagadeyam cha chinthitham,
Swam swam sthaanam cha bhogam cha vijayam lebhire suraa.

The devas got their share of the offerings made in Yagas,
As well as blessings and the things that they wished,
As per their relative position and enjoyment and attained victory.

Thadedath pravadhamyadhya Lakshmi nama sahasrakam,
Yoginaa padath Kshipram chinthitratha navapyasatha.

Oh sages I told you just now these one thousand and eight names,
Of Lakshmi which has such great properties,
Please read them now itself for getting all that you want.

Gargya Uvacha[edit]

Sanath kumaro Yogeendra ithyukthwaa cha daya nighi,
Anugrahya yayou kshipram thaaamsha dwadasa yogina

Telling this the treasure house of mercy, sage Sanathkumara,
Blessed them and left those twelve sages immediately.

Thasmas yedath rahasyam chas gopyam japyam prayathnatha,
Ashtamyam cha Chathurdasyam navamyam, brugu vasare.
Pournamas yam mamaayaam cha parva kale viseshatha,
Japeth vaa nithya karyeshuy sarvaan kaman vapnuyath

People should tryto keep this as secret and read it secretly,
And if this is read on eighth or fourteenth or ninth crescent of the moon,
Or on Friday, new moon day or full moon day or on festival days,
Or chant it daily, they would get all their desires fulfilled.

Ithi Skanda purane Sanath kumara samithaayaam Lakshmi sahasra nama sthothram sampoornam.

Thus ends the thousand names of Goddess Lakshmi occurring in the chapter on Sanath Kumara in the Skanda Purana.
