Sri Stuti is one of the jewels from the long list of compositions that the great Vedanta Desika wrote. Sri Stuti is a poem dedicated to Goddess Lakshmi (the divine feminine), who is also the Goddess of Wealth and Good Nature.
Legend has it that Vedanta Desika composed this to help a poor brahmin boy, get wealthy so that he may find a suitable life partner and sustain life with her. This chant is a prayer to Sri Devi for the conferral of many kinds of auspiciousness and wealth. Wealth in the Vedic tradition is not just about monetary wealth, but also includes attributes such as health, education, sound mind, family and other worthwhile aspects that support an overall positive quality of life.
