Sri Stuthi Audio

Mahalakshmi Devi is the Goddess of wealth and prosperity and singing hymns in praise of Her with devotion is sure to bless the worshipper with all sorts of wealth, including material wealth, spiritual wealth and good health. Legend has it that a poor brahmachari approached Swami Vedantadesikan Aachaarya and asked that he be blessed with money so he could get married. Swami Vedanta Desikan took him inside the temple garbha graham and composed a hymn to Perundevi Thaayaar ( Mahalakshmi Devi ) and the man became wealthy and got married.
I came to know of Sri Stuthi when listening to a presentation about how Sri Kanchi Mahaperiyava had talked highly about the Sri Stuthi composed by Sri Vedanta Desika Aachaaryaa. The hymn that Sri Vedanta Desika Aachaaryaa composed is Sri Stuthi, not to be confused with Sri Suktham. This is really a fantastic set of Shlokas, the main body of which is in the phenomenal Mandakranda Sanskrit metre.

I have recited it here for aspirants to follow if they choose this technique of a reasonable pause between lines; this method will potentially instill a sense of sanctity in the reciter and hopefully please Goddess Mahalakshmi!
And now the audio: about 12 minutes 34 seconds long.
