    Prayer of Eight Verses on ShriHari
    By Bhavya Gogia

    The one who is the Holiest, Purest, the Great Father
    Who is the Primeval Lord, The Nurturer and The Primeval Soul;
    Who is the God of the Entire World, Victory be to him who enchants the mind of World,
    Who has Eyes like Lotuses, and who destroys the bonds of World;
    Who is the beloved Husband of the one residing in a Lotus(Kamla- Lakshmi Ma), Who has a navel like a lotus, and who is a youthful boy,
    Who is the Father of Cupid, and who steals the mind of even Cupid!(Cupid is capable stealing the mind of even Great Yogis, but not our Lord's, instead his mind is stolen by our Lord);
    Who is the Lord of My Mind, Who killed the demon Madhu, and who is Very Enchanting,
    Who gives Liberation, Who killed Mura Demon and Who shines in My Heart;
    Who is the friend of Cows/Vedas(Go) and Who in turn is loved by them(Govind Gopriye) Who descended in the form of a cowherd boy/Who descended as the nurturer of Cows,
    Who is loved by the Group of Gopis(Cowherd Damsels), and Who is the Very Purpose of Existence for the Residents of Gokul;
    Who has a black body, and eyes like Moon(Shashi) and Sun(Ravi),
    Who is the elder brother of SheshNaag, and who rides on ShriGarud;
    Who is the Lord Vaasudev (Vaasudev means the Lord who is the indweller of all, every being resides in him) And Who wears a Garland of Vaijanthi Flowers,
    Who bears Vasundhara (the Earth who bears the weight of all, Hari bears such Great Earth on himself as Sankarshan and Varaha), and wears the garlands of Leaves of Vrinda(Tulsi)
    My obeisances to Such Narayana (Narayana means the base/abode of all beings) Who is the best/Supreme Man,
    Who sleeps/rests in Waters(Neer) and Who eliminates the Obstacles of Men.

    Happiest Janamashtami to everyone! ❤️❤️❤️
    The countdown is over now and the birth anniversary of ShriKrishna is finally there! The God who is the heart throb of simple damsels to sophisticated yogis was born on midnight, his deeds are loving and a reservoir of unlimited joy for all beings. His nectarian words inspire every genius out there. To such Bhagwan, I pay my heartfelt obeisances!

    This poem/prayer is a special one in the sense that it contains eight verses and every word in each verse beings from the same letter. Its an older prayer I wrote 2 years back but couldn't post. For this occasion it seemed perfect! However, I couldn't plan a surprise for my little Krishna though he did surprise me by coming to my house in beautiful vigrahas. Oh ShriHari, how would I even bless you? ��

    Prisoner to Fears

    By Bhavya Gogia

    Brimming with love, filled with care
    With arms ready for a heartfelt embrace
    Mind full of thoughts about loving beloved
    With affectionate heart which was true
    Believe me, my Lord, Oh Vaikunth Madhav
    I swear, my feet ran towards you!

    Then halted suddenly, as the waves rushed
    Of thoughts, insecurities and my low deeds
    In my lowly mind, full of fear of the world,
    I was scared to my last breath Oh ShriVishnu
    I stopped myself altogether at your door
    But I swear my feet ran towards you!

    My mind which wonders about your wonders
    About your beauty, your grace and charm,
    About your mercy filled rain cloud persona
    Was then just filled of melancholic blue
    Tears filled my eyes, my heart clasped pain
    But I swear my feet ran towards you!

    My worthless mind which adored bitter ego
    Told me how low I was, I had no standard
    To embrace you Oh Father, it called me bad
    I felt helpless and trapped without rescue
    But before succumbing to my pain and grief
    Believe me, my feet ran towards you!

    Happy Father's Day!

    By Bhavya Gogia

    Dire circumstances when fill me with grief
    There is a haven which provides for relief
    On the arid soil, like pouring showers anew
    Blessing my days, my future, my views
    That's how I feel when I am with you!
    Like the flowers which are nourished bright
    With constant and ample sunlight,
    Like the night which is glorified with moon
    And the welkin with stars obtains value
    That's how I feel when I am with you!
    Pouring wisdom on the barren landscapes
    Of the naive mind and its empty escapes
    You fill the voids incurred by gloomy blues
    With words of worth exuding nectarian truth
    That's how I feel when I am with you!
    When thorns of pain make my heart bleed
    I think about your smile and feel released
    I love you Father, and forever would I do,
    One day I will make you proud of me too,
    Because that's how I feel when I am with you!

    Birthday of Bhagwati
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Sitting on a high branch on the tree
    Which I climbed this morn, I began to think
    The Surprise to present to our Mayya,
    To please her, what should be our gift!?
    I call upon Pitaji whom I find lost in thought
    While he is sitting beneath collecting fruits,
    He looks up and understands my silence,
    While I began to think about his own,
    'We're thinking the same thing, my buddy'
    He answers before my eyelids blink,
    So I jump, he catches me, and we sit there
    Together on the bench, both of us think
    'Dad I am your bud, we need Ma's parrot'
    And both of us turn our gaze at the other,
    'Akhila!' we spring! beaming at the thought
    And I go calling the lil one of my mother!
    Hari smiles as we both come running
    Excited joyously hand in hand,
    "Oh I know, I know what to do" says Akki
    While she picks a stick to draw on sand!
    One after the other, she describes and draws
    While me and Raghav sit as students
    Obediently we listen to my sister, her plan,
    And squirrels gather around for information
    'No time to waste' I take her hands in mine
    Hari nods, as we head to the village market
    "I'll go collect decorations" he goes on own
    While she counts the money in her pocket
    Making purchases from our pocket moneys
    We buy the supplies and head to our cottage
    While Akhila enters from the door cleverly
    I enter the kitchen from a window unnoticed
    I hid the stuff, as they expected from me,
    And the evening of beauty passes by,
    As the clock strikes 5 at dawn, we're awoke
    By ShriRam's voice and his eager eyes
    "Oh! Lets get to work" and our trio heads
    To our work base, the kitchen to say
    With clean hands, we set the groceries atop
    And commence our jobs assigned that day
    While me and Akhila work with food & drinks
    Hari strings the flowers, perhaps decorating
    The room is full of lotus scents and sweets
    And he puts a charm preventing early waking
    "Its 7!" We squeal, Ma wakes and Dad rushes
    To her room beside her being her first wish
    Then he closes her eyes with his blue palms
    We each take her hands, to lead to her gifts
    He slowly opens her eyes, while people rise
    From under the tables adorned with love
    Each of us spark in unison 'Surpriseee!'
    While ShriRaghav gives her a loving hug!
    On the lofty table sits a magnificent cake
    Along with sweets, rasgullas, barfi & halwa
    Relatives bring jewels, presents of all kind
    For our Janak Dulari Kishori Sita Mayya!
    She whose magnanimity knows no bounds
    Is garlanded by the flowers strung by ShriPati
    She beams with joy blessing all with love
    While all hail the beautiful & divine Bhagwati
    ©shrihari_nandini

    So this is a surprise planned by me and my sister Akhilavandana along with our father ShriRaam for the birthday of our Mayya Sita ��

    Do you know how Raghav praised Janaki?
    Akhila narrates it to this way!

    He says,
    "Your name Sītā means the one who has risen from furrow (in Sanskrit).
    In English, I will tell you what each letter signifies. ❤️

    S- Selfless. Your care and selflessness knows no bounds. You accompanied me to the forest without thinking about the dangers lurking there. You always think about my welfare.
    I- Inspiring. Your courage, determination, strength, love, everything about you inspires me and our devotees.
    T- Trusting. You always know that I would be there for you. You did what nobody else can do. Whatever difficult situation you were in, you faced everything and had full faith in me. You believe me and this belief makes me what I am.
    A- Amazing.

    And so we celebrate our Mayya, Bhagwati Sita's birthday to please her and get her blessings ��

    Birthday Boy ShriRam
    By Bhavya Gogia

    The day's arriving, the auspicious one!
    But Oh The Ruling Lord looks fumed
    What did you do or perhaps I
    Even Sita Mayya seems confused
    Well, I know, I did some mess
    But we need to make him smile again
    While Shri Hanuman sings his eulogies
    We sit together to make a plan
    "Look" I say, "like a child,
    His baby face sprouts a pout"
    "And we don't even know why"
    Says Ashu Di, "or what is it about!?"
    One thing leads to another
    And we come upon an idea
    But this would not be easy to hide
    From either Raghav or his Siya
    So we plan to include
    Our Ma in our little plot
    While I execute this, Ashu Di
    Goes about informing the whole abode
    So I enter the chambers of our parents
    And climb to Mayya's lap
    While Raghav sits with his phone
    As if busy on Vaishnav-Chat
    So I quietly exit the room
    After sliding the secret letter to Ma
    And she smiles acknowledging
    And appreciating our idea
    So the day comes, the Navami of Chaitra
    But everyone quietly does daily chores
    Raghav raises an eyebrow, in surprise
    As he keeps staring around and all
    But no one seems bothered
    So he proceeds towards his throne
    Moving with his pout on,
    He picks up his bright blue phone
    But as he sits at the couch
    All the lights go off, it's dark
    Then a glowing figure appears in the middle
    Its Ma, with her lovely charm!
    Her golden glow emanates the room
    As she sings his eulogies with love
    While everyone emerges from the shadows
    Each in a different bright colour!
    We dance and sport and form the scenes
    Beloved to his heart and soul,
    We celebrate and enact upon his Katha,
    While food is served to the lovely God!
    Some fondle him, and decorate his hair
    While some relatives offer a sweet
    Some give presents and elders shower love
    While little children press his Feet!
    ShriRam lights up, his face is brightened
    As Ma Jaanki caresses him along
    He seems impressed and every voice chants
    "Long live our Sweetest Lord!"
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Okay, so this idea most twenty first century devotees like that ShriHari should've a phone and a Vaishnav Chat (app like insta perhaps invented by me ��), so that every Vaishnav, every devotee, could chat with him easily.. So I added this element for fun.
    And, I am not lying ShriRam was really making a face these days... And Sita Ma also looked confused.. So Aarsha Di told me to fondle him, like really he smiles when you give him love filled attention.
    So don't ignore ShriRam today, play with him, love him, worship him, celebrate the day and MAKE HIM HAPPY!

    Pic: My SiyaRam (I called them Raita cuz Ram+Sita= Raita ��)

    Jay ShriHari! Jay ShrimanNarayana!
    ShriHari bless all! ��❤️��

    Blue Daffodils
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Softly tracing the steps of love
    He traced the terrace of my heart
    He of long arms enchanted
    My lowly life and its every part!
    He gave it purpose, I felt it now
    Waving off my endless sins
    He painted my life in such tints
    Extracted as if from blue daffodils

    Carving off the ugly manifestation
    Of my thoughts, my misfortunes
    He hid every pain under the veil of love
    And resounded my life with lovely tunes
    Until now, with stars and moon
    The empty void, I knew he fills
    But he proved the veracity of mercy
    He, with hue of blue daffodils

    In the bitter nights of November
    He brought forth for me a renewing spring
    With his glow, illuminating my self,
    About his glories, he let me sing
    What's the purpose of bragging my pleasure
    He who felt, would know the thrills
    About the blessings of the one with Feet
    Softer than blue daffodils!

    I received ShriHari first in November, 2017 ��

    Jay ShriHari! Jay ShrimanNarayana!

    A Major Theft
    - Bhavya Gogia

    Who made the rules my Father?
    And why did you let'em implement?
    Why are you so cruel Oh Father?
    You used to be my sole opulence!
    Who is someone to say,
    That I don't belong to you,
    Who are they to crush my belief
    Who gave them the authority if not you!
    Karma Bhumi is this world
    That's what you chose to call,
    And strung us in the web
    You made the rules for all,
    You made us all unpaid servants
    By showing your mercy first hand
    You left us in debt which can't be paid
    And no option for reprimand
    Why Oh Father, you call yourself 'Great'
    If you leave us with nothing but hope
    That one time you're ours then not
    We dont own you cause you're the God
    And don't you smile, you cunning mind
    I won't heed to ill refutations you give
    Or your devotees or whatever whoever
    Cause I am tired of being just submissive
    Nobody heard what I had to say
    Just clinging to the hopes, I'll be alright
    Oh no what you ignored all along
    Was in real, my actual sight!
    Yes I dont care to worship you,
    Yes I dont heed to do any thing,
    But I knew I adored you, I knew
    I loved you with my everything!
    Why is it, who made it so,
    I hate that love, if that's how it's defined,
    To suffer immensely is never love
    All rules of bliss, its you who defied
    I am dead from heart which sang about you
    My spirits cling to last bits of hope
    Love is not a half way road,
    Dont come to me, if you've to be God
    I was clear then, and am clear now
    Mistreated perhaps by my own foes
    But all I wanted was my Father, his love
    Never all of your opulent fancy shows!
    ©shrihari_nandini

    On 11th November, 2017, I got the best gift of my life. But its stolen from me now.. I got the gift of innocent love. Well, not ordinary though, love of God. (Though it never qualified as love, I choose to call it love for now)
    But as I say, it wasn't ordinary, it was so much more, my personal attachment to him, I never knew came to be of social importance.
    Everyone praised me for devotion, they do so till now.. But I was never a devotee..
    I tried my best to follow all the rules, be a devotee, do what not, think what not. But all this just stifled me.
    And one day, in the blind chase of becoming a 'good devotee' I lost my past innocent self.
    You can see from my old poems and recent ones.. How I tried to incorporate the rules in me. How I tried to make my Father as the King of Universes.
    How the one reciprocating my childish acts became a Supreme Personality refered to as 'Sir'.
    Well, I've come a long way. And I am in no way posting myself superior to all the genuine rules abiding devotees.
    All I ever want is, my innocence back, and that's why I am leaving all thoughts of being good and perfect.
    I'll be what I am and I'll see God as I saw before even if that makes me the worst sinner of all times.
    Thank You for reading..

    Yours truly
    ShriHari Nandini

    Shubh ShriRukmini Ashtami
    By Bhavya Gogia

    In the midst of forest groves
    I worship Rukmini Govinda
    On her day of appearance
    Shines the beloved of Mukunda
    Today, behold! She sports pretty clothing
    I adorn her with flowers on her tresses
    She, who shines with brilliance of Magnanimity
    She frees us from our Karma's cesses
    Today, I will offer her many delicacies
    She is herself a magnificent lotus amidst many
    Which shine in the shimmering lake beside
    Where bees hum in an alluring symphony
    Decorating her self, with extraordinary jewels
    They shine by her sweet effulgence
    She my mother, plays with me whole day
    There are no words for her magnificence
    Hari who sits beside rhyming his flute
    With the melodies of the song of her love
    Everyone's dazzled today, on her birthday,
    The nectar pours ceaselessly from above!
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Today, is ShriRukmini Ashtami, the auspicious appearance day of ShriRukmini Ma the beloved of ShriKrishna and his Principle Wife! Let's celebrate it by devoting this day to her and ShyamSundar's Lotus Feet! ��❤��

    Ps: Last year we celebrated Rukmini Dwadashi, however, I was unsure about her exact birthday being in Pausha Month (this) or Vishakha Month. Since, the current information, today is ShriRukmini's birthday while the former is said to be her marriage day.

    My Prabhu Forever

    By ShriHari Nandini

    I don't wanna achieve you Father
    Cuz if you're mine,
    Distance doesn't matter,
    And if Oh Father, you aren't mine,
    Then your place, isn't mine either

    I don't wanna achieve you Hari
    Cuz I know you can't be
    Won like a Trophy,
    If you are not a prize, I consider you my life
    Then where's the scope to worry?

    I don't wanna search for you Madhav
    Cuz in your smile,
    I find each answer,
    The great exclaim, you live in my Heart
    Even though I am not your standard

    I don't wanna search for you ShriVishnu
    Because, I know you're by my side forever,
    And hence I do not find an issue,
    For even if I forget you won't,
    You shall always be my Prabhu

    Come before the Dark falls
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Come my Lord of matchless charm
    Fill me in your embrace which is warm
    Let me be a magnet to your feet
    And worry further not for my heaps of sins
    Come Oh Murare, vanquisher of my sigh
    Come before my darkness sings me a lullaby
    Oh Lord who measured the skies and the earth
    Infinity times who took various births
    You are birthless, yet you come for the poor
    You are the helper of the helpless in despair
    Come for me too, much dark is this night
    Come before my darkness sings me a lullaby
    When Partha lost his way, in the battlefield
    Out of grief, he approached your lotus feet
    When Vibhishan came, grieved by his brother
    You caressed the forsaken like a loving Mother
    Your feet are approached always by the wise
    Come before my darkness sings me a lullaby
    You took Rukmini at once, when she called you
    Only you are fit to be approached by hearts which are true
    I am a fallen one, my heart is fraught with lies
    Oh Merciful, still kindly heed to my plight!
    Come before my darkness sings me a lullaby
    My Lord above all, the child of Dashratha
    You are well known as Apath Bandhava*
    Your glories are our treasure, your feet are our life
    Pray make me a servant, to those elixir sans pride
    Come before my darkness sings me a lullaby
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Aapath/Aapadh Bandhava means one who gets us out of our troubles and problems.

    If in this life, my darkness comes before he does to protect me, I will sleep surrounded in the darkness deprived of the light he is. If I am not able to see him before my eyes close in the darkness I have always been, my life, my each breath would be worthless, if he doesn't hear my plead to save me from this darkness, I don't know when next would I get a human birth to contemplate on him.

    This human birth is very very precious, use it wisely to sing his praise and come out of darkness for when it ends, you never know when you will be human again and be able to approach him for no other being can do devotion like a human until and unless he is graced by ShriBhagwan or ShriVaishnavas themselves.

    My cherished Present
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Give me not all sorts of wealth
    Neither give me, joys and pleasures
    I don't desire life like Gods*
    Neither give me prosperous abodes
    All I ask is the eternal gift
    Of ShriVishnu's lotus feet
    If someone could just give me these
    I'll serve them I promise without fees
    This life has never cherished much
    Perishable items of plastic and dust
    And neither jewels nor happy smiles
    All I wish for now is a devoted life
    To the Feet of Lakshmi Narayana
    I desire just that perfection
    I never lose a thought of them (that's my prayer)
    And give me neither jewels or gems
    I've known devotees many such
    Who conquered senses by his Feet's dust
    Then can I not conquer my petty mind
    If just for once, I am blessed by his sight?
    ©shrihari_nandini

    *I here use the words Gods because here I mean to say people who consider themselves as God and who are rich and egoistic due to that. God is only one, writing Gods isn't correct. For celestials other than ShrimanNarayana, they are called Devi- Devatas.

    I am tired of my foolish mind and desires. If someone could gift me the taste of ShriVishnu's Lotus Feet then I will be an unpaid servant to him/her. (This is the role of an Acharya though �� one who joins us with His Lotus Feet is an Acharya and none else.)

    Plead to ShriRangaNaath
    By Bhavya Gogia

    Oh Bhagwati and ShriBhagwaan
    Oh magnificent Shriyah and RangaNaath
    Pray forgive all my sins
    I don't even remember their counting
    However, Oh Parama Devatas
    I shamelessly stand being fearless
    I have never cared for my trespasses
    And have been lost in the World's homicide Caresses
    Oh Kamla, Oh Vishnu, please listen to my pleads
    You are known as ones of merciful deeds
    I have sinned, I have sinned terribly
    I have been in conditions and lived horribly
    I don't have the audacity to speak much
    Since my faults haunt me, and it's getting tough
    I have called you multiple bad names
    I have always blamed you for all my wails
    I know you both are angry at me
    And disappointed too, as I feel
    But Oh Bhagwati, my sole refuge,
    I know I have always been very rude
    I am the lowest of low and miserably deprived
    You are the highest of high and the kindest of kind
    Yet I have been reckless and never humble
    But losing you now, I do tremble
    Oh Vishnu, do not deprive me, the wretched one
    Of the service of your Sweet Feet, like lotus
    If you leave me, where shall I go?
    Do I have a recourse, other than you?
    I know, I haven't trusted you and your wish
    But yet I pine for your Feet's Nectarian bliss
    Please Bhagwaan, heed to my sigh
    Without you and Ma, there's no purpose of my life
    If you leave me, Oh Padma Murari
    I shall end my life in the Holy Kaveri
    Then, purified by your will, I wish to get birth
    As a servant of servant of your Feet's Dust
    Even if you discard me then, Oh ShriMadhav
    I won't call my life as pallid or barren
    ©shrihari_nandini

    ShriRanga Dhaam, the abode of ShriRangaNaath is surrounded by the holy Kaveri river. If ShriLakshmiNarayana forbid me from serving them and keep me further away from them, I will have no purpose of living. I wish to be the Servant of Servant of their feet's dust. Nothing else.

    Mukund Mala Verse 5
    nāsthā dharme na vasu-nicaye naiva kāmopabhoge

    yad bhāvyaḿ tad bhavatu bhagavan pūrva-karmānurūpaḿ

    etat prārthyaḿ mama bahu mataḿ janma-janmāntare 'pi

    tvat-pādāmbhoruha-yuga-gatā niścalā bhaktir astu

    Meaning:
    No interest I have in Dharma,
    Nor in collection of wealth and assets,
    Nor in passion and making love,
    For what has been decided by you,
    Will come to me in the form of karmas of the past,
    But I have one soulful prayer to thee, my Lord,
    In this birth and what follows,
    Let me have rock like faith,
    In thine two holy feet.

    I pray, I wish, to ShriHari that I develop Nishchal Bhakti (selfless pure devotion) to their two holy feet. Nothing else, I desire.

    Happiest Dussehra!!!! ❤❤❤❤❤����������

    ShriVallabhAcharya wrote MadhurAshtakam on ShriKrishn. It had eight paragraphs describing the various attributes of Bhagwaan, but it had only one adjective that is 'Madhur' or 'Sweet' each line ending with MadhurAdhiPaterAkhilam Madhuram' meaning everything is sweet about the Lord of Sweetness.

    Just like a lover finds everything about his loved one as sweet, his speech, his voice, his gait, his smile, his hands, his feet, his eyes, his eye movements and everything, similarly did Shri VallabhAcharya wrote about our Bhagwan with whom he was in love with.

    It is veryyyyyyyyyyy sweet to hear and recite.
    In fact it is said to be the favourite hymn of Bhagwan ShriKrishna himself!
    No wonder it is a gem in itself!

    My best friend and my sister @aarsha_ns di told me to write something similar on ShriRaam. Since I do not know Sanskrit, I gave my naive attempt to write something like this in Hindi for ShriRaam Bhagwan with eight paragraphs using the adjective Madhur in each line for each of his attribute and the last line for each para being 'Akhil Madhur SiyaNaath', that is 'The Lord of Siya is entirely sweet' ��❤��

    And on this occasion of Dussehra or Vijaya Dashami, I am sharing it with everyone.
    Let's celebrate the sweetness of the King and Queen of Sweetness- ShriSeethaRaam!!!

    #Shri_Lakshmi_Charit 9

    In this last part, of ShriLakshmi Charit, I have described the Kripa (Mercy) of Devi Lakshmi, and the opulences she can provide. She being the Supreme Mother, there is absolutely nothing impossible for her. Therefore, she provides to one the blessings of wealth (Dhan), crops(Dhaanya), progeny (Santaan), Victory (Vijay), Dhairya (Patience), Boons (Vardaan), devotion to her and Narayana (Bhakti) and lastly the most important goal of human life, Liberation (Mukti).
    She is the one who guides the path of sages, she is the one who provides one the supreme knowledge to attain Moksha and service to ShriLakshmiNarayana. She destroys all inauspiciousness and gives rise to all kinds of auspiciousness for us and her devotees, Sharnagatas!
    She is the Goddess of My Heart ❤
    Hence I pray to her to provide endless mercy to that person who recites this hymn 'ShriLakshmi Charit' daily or routinely.

    Explanation:
    ShriLakshmi has an important role is Sharnagati. In fact in ShriVaishnav Tilak the two white lines represent Jeeva and Parmatma and the red line in between represents Ma Lakshmi. In the ninth para, I have described her rulership over everything, therefore she can provide the Supreme Bliss to anyone by her grace alone.
    She very mercifully provides her grace to the ones who take shelter in her. (Sharnagatas). She always present on the feet of Narayana where one jeeva can approach him, not only this she is also present in his heart forever. Therefore, she from one side she welcomes the Jeevas in serving Hari and on the other side she being the Queen of Hari's Heart, makes him forgive all sins and trespasses of Jeevas and makes them eligible to serve them. And then, she very lovingly gives them the fortune of serving both her and her Lord forever in ShriVaikuntha. This is her mercy!!!!!

    Happy Navratri Day 7!

    #Shri_Lakshmi_Charit 7

    Here, I have described about ShriLakshmi's Avatars along with Narayana. We discussed previously, that both are equal in qualities and compassion. And out of that compassion to save the Jeevas from Samsar Sagar, they both descend time after time.
    After being the wife of Narayana, Lakshmi takes up this duty along with him, being a constant companion fulfilling the Sankalpa(will) of Narayana to save all Jeevas.

    The one who is always present with Hari is Lakshmi
    Those who always descend (for us) are Hari and Lakshmi
    The one who destroys Adharma is Goddess Lakshmi
    The Nurturer of Devotees is Devi Lakshmi
    The chaste wife Tulsi is ShriLakshmi
    The daughter of Bhrigu, hence called ShriBhargavi is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the Youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi |8|

    The one worshipped by Prahlad are Narsimha and Lakshmi
    The beloved of Upendra (ShriVaman) is Padma Lakshmi
    The daughter of Janak, and the Consort of Raam is Lakshmi
    The purest and the most pious Seetha is Lakshmi
    The better half of the foremost in dynasty of Yadu (ShriKrishn) is Lakshmi
    Satyabhama, Rukmini and Nappinai is Lakshmi
    The daughter of the Ocean is the Youthful Lakshmi
    Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi |9|
    ©shrihari_nandini

    Explanation:
    Lakshmi is always present with Hari and both out of their compassion to save us, destroy Adharma and nurture devotees descend in various forms.
    Tulsi Devi, the pious chaste wife is said to be a form of ShriLakshmi only, she was married to ShriVishnu.
    Then, she became the daughter of Bhrigu and Khyati and married ShriVishnu.
    When Bhagwan came as ShriNarsimha, she came as Chenchu Lakshmi. When Bhagwan became Vaaman, she was called Padma.
    When he was the upholder of Dharma, ShriRaam, she was the purest and the most pious Devi Seetha.
    When he came as the gem of Yadukul, (dynasty of King Yadu) and the child of Braj Bhumi, she descended as Rukmini Ma. Nila Devi became Ma Nappinai or Ma Nagnjeeti and Bhudevi became Ma Satyabhama. Here, Bhudevi and Niladevi are seen as forms of Lakshmi as we discussed previously (Antaryamitva and qualities).

    Explanation:
    As the Primordial Couple ShriLakshmiNarayana got married, I have further described, the qualities of ShriLakshmi with respect to ShriVishnu being her husband. Both have an equal status, being eternal and all pervading.
    Both are the object of worship by the Vedas, Puranas, and Itihaas too.

    Vishnu Puran Book 1 Chapter 8 Shloka 17
    ShriParashar said: Oh Best Among Twice Born Ones! The one who never leaves the side of Vishnu, the Mother of the World, ShriLakshmi is eternal and all pervading just like him.

    Further in Shloka 34
    To say in brief, in Devatas, Manushyas and all entities, the Masculine Form is that of Vishnu and the Feminine is that of Lakshmi (Antaryamitva), there is nothing that exists besides these too.

    ShriVishnu is solely dedicated to ShriLakshmi and ShriLakshmi is solely dedicated to ShriVishnu. Both are revered as Divya Dampatis, the Primordial Couple!

    Explanation:
    Here the position of Lakshmi is explained being VishnuPatni- the wife of ShriVishnu and her glories apart from that as well.
    Being the empress, and the origin of all Goddesses, ShriLakshmi is worshipped by Shiv Ji, Brahma Dev etc. They all rever her! She is the friend of Parvati and Saraswati Devis who always worship her and adore her, as she is their origin. She is the great MahaLakshmi!
    She always dons a form alike that of Bhagwaan Narayana, as per his desire and mindset. This is also described in greater detail in the Book 1 Chapter 8 and 9 of ShriVishnu Puran (it's so sweet to read ��)
    When Bhagwan dons a human form, she too becomes a human wife according to him. Even in Matsya, Kurma avatars she accompanied him, always in different forms.
    Bhagwaan and Devi are never separate. They are like Sun and Sunlight, Flower and Fragrance.
    She is always presiding on the chest of ShriVishnu. The ShriVatsa mark on his chest marks her presence on it eternally and forever...��

    I owe my maximum knowledge to @parth_madhav Bhaiya ����❤��

    Explanation:

    After knowing about her beauty and chief characteristics, everyone wished to have her- The Matchless Goddess. All the apsaras (celestial nymphs) that arose from the Ocean were not even a spark of Lakshmi's beauty.
    But to be Lakshmi Pati- The Husband of Lakshmi, only a person who is equal to her was eligible. Only Parmatma ShrimanNarayana could be her bridegroom. In ShrimadBhagwatam, Gopikas describe him as Shriyah Ekant Vallabham- The Sole Husband of ShriLakshmi.
    In fact Lakshmi is the defining feature of Parmatma. Vedas call the one Parmatma, who is the 'Husband of Lakshmi' and none else.
    When her marriage was being conducted, Lakshmi looked around for her suitable bridegroom (of course she knew, it was just a leela). Everyone whether Asuras or Devatas had one or the other taints, none was completely pure.
    Then Lakshmi's eyes fell on Vishnu, who was the blemishless Parmatma, the Antaryami of All, the Abode of Shudh Satva, whom sins never touch. ShriVishnu who is always ShriyahPati got enchanted by the beauty of her beloved wife. And Lakshmi too got enchanted by the matchless form of ShriHari.
    Hence, she garlanded Vishnu as her Husband, and this was their another leela of being united.
    In Vishnu Puran, Rishi Matreya asks Rishi Parashar, that if Lakshmi arose from Ocean and has a birth then how come, she be eternal like Vishnu?
    To which Rishi Parashar replies, that Lakshmi is Vishnu's eternal companion. And both of them are always engaged in their infinite pastimes and keep enjoying their union in each leela.
    The Samudra Manthan was another of their leela to get united and enjoy their love pastimes.
    Lakshmi is all pervading alike Vishnu, she always resides on his chest as the Shrivatsa Mark. When he becomes Raam, She becomes Seetha, when he is Krishna, she becomes Rukmini. They are never separate.
