Sri Lalitha Sahasranamam Phalasruti
Unlike Vishnu sahasranama, where the phala sruthi is the part
of the stotra, in the case of Laitha Sahasranama, phala sruthi
-the benefits of chanting Sri Lalitha Sahasranamam, is the next
chapter and separate from it. So it is not recited along with
the thousand names of Lalitha. This great work occurs in the
Markandeya Purana and was taught by Sage Markandeya to sage
Nama sahasram khaditham they ghatothbhava,
Rahasyaanam rahasyam cha Lalitha preethi dayakam,
Aanena sadrusam stotram na bhootham na bhavishyathi., 1
These 1000 names which were told, Oh Agasthya,
Are secret of the secrets and are very dear to Lalitha.
This type of prayer has never existed in the past or will exist in future.
Sarva roga prasamanam sarva sampath pravardhanam,
Sarvaapath mruthyu shamanam akala mruthyu nivaranam., 2
This cures all diseases and gives rise to all types of wealth,
It cures all accidental deaths and is an antidote to untimely death.
Sarva jwararthi hananam deergayushya pradhayakam,
Puthra pradhama puthraanaam purushartha pradhayakam., 3
It is a cure for all types of fever, and gives rise to long life,
It gives son that too first son and gives three types of wealth.
Yidham visesharidevya sthothram preethi vidhatakam,
Japen nityam prayathnena lalithopasthi thath para., 4
This special prayer of goddess to with an aim to please her,
Should be chanted daily after worshipping of Lalitha.
Pratha snathwa vidhathena sandhya karma samapya cha,
Pooja gruhe thatho gathwa chakra rajam samarchayeth 5
Take bath in the morning, finish the oblations of the dawn,
Go to the prayer room and first worship the Sree Chakra.
