– Salutations to the principle of the guru that exists in everyone
OM SRI GANESHAYA NAMAHA
– Salutations to the First among the Celestials
OM EIM SARASAWAT-YEI SWAHA

Next, you will make a series of “mudras” or hand signs to amplify the energies within … point your thumbs up into the air (as in giving the thumbs up sign) and chant
OM HRIM ANGUSTA-BHYAM NAMAHA
Touch your thumbs to your little fingers and chant:
OM HRIM LAKSHMI-YEI TARJANE-BHYAM NAMAHA
Touch your thumbs to your ring fingers:
OM HRIM KIRTI-YEI MADHYAMA-BHYAM NAMAHA
Touch your thumbs to your middle fingers:
OM HRIM JAYA-YEI ANA-MIKA-BHYAM NAMAHA
Touch your thumbs to your index fingers:
OM HRIM MAYA-YEI KANISHTIKA-BHYAM NAMAHA
Then place your palms together, as in prayer and chant …
OM HRIM KARATALA … and turn the hands to the back of each other so the palms face outward and chant
KARA PRISTA-BHYAM NAMAHA
With your palms open facing upwards as in supplication and surrender . . .
OM SRI MAHA LAKSHMI JAPA DHYANAM SAMARPAYAMI
and then chant the following mantra 108 times on the Mala beads:
and then chant back 108 times back (without jumping over the meru) around the mala:
OM SHIRM MAHA LAKSMI-YEI SWAHA !!
(this is the mantra to attract abundance and prosperity – but if you want to remove every obstacle between you and abundance then chant this:)
OM GUM SHRIM MAHA LAKSHMI-YEI SWAHA!!!!
and conclude by chanting just the following once:
OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI
This is a very esoteric Tantra and if you chant this every day for 40 days you WILL be blessed with ABUNDANCE! As you chant, feel the feelings of having what you desire. For example, imagine how good it will feel to deposit a big check 😉 Some people chant the words, but silently say “Thank You” after each line. Gratitude magnifies the request!
It does take a little longer, but I find that I can easily do it all within 15-20 minutes. The repeated chants can be said rapidly …. I usually put on some seascape new age type music which really helps to take me to a high meditation.
Follow by chanting the very powerful and effective Maha Lakshmi Ashtakam :
