Hello All......I am still learning new things all the time about the gods and goddesses in the hindu religion.....What are your thoughts about the simple mantra "shreem" I am obv aware that it is related to lakshmi, but if we just simply chant/whisper this mantra can it still bring us the power of prosperity? thanks.......breath

    Mantras are used as a tool to verbally/aurally connect with primordial energetic powers and manifest their effects in our life.

    "Om Shreem Kleem Lakshmi yea Namaha"

    This is a mantra to attract prosperity. Shreem is the operative phrase for "attraction." Using this mantra will send out your intention for attraction -if you don't verbally add something afterwards likely whatever is held in your mind, what your attention is focussed on, is what will manifest in your life.

    Srim is the Bija or seed mantra for Laksmi. Laksmiji is the feminine aspect of God, she is completely divine. She is and actual being, a person. We should try to worship her in the mood of service rather than thinking or asking service (prosperity) for ourselves. Her desire is that all souls return back to their eternal position as servitors of her husband Vishnu or Krishna. That is actual the divine exchange of yoga, using our prosperity in the service of Vishnu. Ravana the great demon of the Ramayana tried to enjoy Lakshmi (Sita) without the presence of Rama (Vishnu) and ultimately he met destruction. But Hanuman however tried to bring Sita to Rama attained all that is desirable. One can read lots of info about our Mother Laksmiji and her divine prayers in the Srimad Bhagavatam. Thnak you very much.
    Your servant,
    Nityananda Ram Das

        there is an indian proverb that says ; if one is looking for laksmi, look for narayana (visnu/krsna) as she will always be serving him ;)

            Shreem, bija mantra of Lakshimi
            Lakshmi is a Divine Femmine Emination of Beauty and Prosperity
            This does not necesarrily mean prosperity through gaining a lot of money,
            Lakshmi is a form of Shakti which a goddess which represents the preserving as[ects of life , which are food, clothes, things one needs in order to maintain their existance in whatever form the soul must experience that in each life

            she is the consort of Vishnu the preserving aspect of the divine masculine

            she is wonderful

              Hi Breath! (I love your name)

              Shreem being the bija mantra of Lakshimi can be chanted by itself, but is most often incorporated into longer mantras to invest them with a special “seed” power, such as: Om Shreem Maha Lakshmiyei Namah.

              What I believe I've heard is that one would use the long form of the mantra in daily practice but could use the bija mantra in an emergency or special situation.

              Hope this helps!

                To all divine souls
                1. First beeja mantras are better learned from a guru who has attained siddhi of that mantra and then chanted suitably.
                2. Second specific mantra's are suited to each individual based on past karma and the level of conciousness.
                3. Third beeja mantras need 'protective' mantra's to be chanted.
                4. Learned / chanted properly and practiced ceaselessly mantras can bring about immense benefits and self realization.
                5. Picked up casually and chanted can cause setbacks and harm.

                  You are correct in your advice..
                  Also Mantra's are sacred and therefore when given by Guru
                  should be kept private for ones self only..
