1. O Jataveda! (Fire God/Agni)! I invoke your Grace to bring unto me Lakshmi (embodiment of Shree/wealth). Lakshmi, who, with a golden aura resembles a golden doe and is adorned with garlands of gold and silver. She is delightful like the moon and abounding in riches.

2. O Jataveda! Bring unto me that Lakshmi who will not desert me. May I obtain the gold, cows, horses and followers bestowed by Her.

3. I invoke that Goddess of Prosperity (Shreedevi), who comes with horses in front, chariots in the middle and whose coming is announced by the trumpeting of elephants. May that Goddess of Prosperity come and bless me.
