    Namaste,

    yet another translation request. Could you please provide the translation for


    Om maha laxmi namo namah

    Om vishnu prayayi namo namah

    Om dhan pradaya namo namah

    Om vishawa jannanya namo namah


    Thank you.

    My translation (and some pronunciation corrections, of which I am not sure):

    Om mahā laxmi namo namah: Multiple salutations to Great Mother Lakshmi
    Om vishnu prayāyi namo namah: Multiple salutations to the synonym* of Lord Vishnu
    Om dhan pradāyī namo namah: Multiple salutations to the giver of wealth
    Om vishwa jananānyī namo namah: Multiple salutations to the begetter of all people of the world

    * Synonym: Have doubts about that.

    I'm thinking om vishnupriyāyai namo namah. Priya being beloved, priyāyai being the inflected (dative) form for feminine singular.

    "Multiple salutations to the beloved of Lord Vishnu". I'd say literally it's "to Vishnu beloved".

    It could also be om vishnupatnyai namo namah

    Consider Her gayatri:

    om mahalakshmyai cha vidmahe
    vishnupatnyai [wife of Vishnu, lit. Vishnuwife] cha dhimahi
    tanno lakshmih prachodayat

    Just some guesses. :)

    Btw, prayA means "start up" or "get running". PrayAyi (actually prayAyai) means "to Vishnu's start up". o_O Well, some wives do get their husbands moving (I'd be sooo going to hell if there were a hell :D ).

    Om. Let us meditate on the Great Goddess Sri Lakshmi, the consort of Sri Maha Vishnu. May that effulgent Maha Lakshmi Devi inspire and illuminate our mind with understanding
