    Sri Lakshmi-Narayana (dhyana) shlokas?

    Namaste,

    Are there any (dhyana) shlokas on Sri-Lakshmi Narayana?(I mean shlokas that salute both in the same shloka)

    You could recite Sri Lakshmi Narayana Hridayam, but even here you first recite Narayana Hridayam first, then recite Sri Lakshmi Hridayam and finish again with narayana Hridayam. They (Narayana and Lakshmi stuthis) are not together in 1-sloka.

    Here, Shri in Shri KRshNa is Shri, i.e. LakshmI who is always forever on KRshNa's vakshasthaLa (chest).

    Thanks for the chants.

    In the south,usually we say Sri Rukmini Satyabhama Sametha Sri Krishna.I was assuming Rukmini Devi=Sri Lakshmi.Sri Radha Devi is Lakshmi?

    Namaste RAm Ji

    Yes I hear that also, the Tamil priests usually say Rukmini SatyabhAmA sameta for Govinda. And in Maharashtra it is VithobA-RakhumAi (Vitthal (DwArakAdheesh i.e. KRshNa and RukmiNi).

    RukmiNi is actually Lakshmi in a more direct way (Shridevi), and SatyabhAmA is Bhudevi. So this way Shridevi-Bhudevi-Govinda.
    Then who is Radha?
    The answer is Radha is KRshNa svayam. His internal bliss potency, alhAdini shakti.

    One acharya gave a very nice explanation.
    Once all the devas went to Shri KrshNa in Golok and said, Lord, by Your grace we know so much, You perform all these leelas and we see that, You play roles to protect the good and destroy evil, we see that. All this is what You do for the world, it is Your compassion.
    Yet we don't really know You as You. We want to know Who You are.
    So KRshNa said that is not very easy - Understanding Me.
    Then He created His 'Sva' , Himself from His left and a beautiful fair maiden was seen. This is Radha.

    Another explanation: Whenever the Supreme Lord wants to sport with Himself, He becomes Radha-KRshNa. He is therefore RAdhA-ramaN.

    From the GauDIya (or Bramha-vaivarta puran) perspective, Radha is the head of all Shris. All Lakshmis, MahaLakshmi, DhanaLakshmi, GajaLakshmi, and so on expand from Her. In Radha SahasranAma, a conversation between Shiva and Parvati, Radha is also said to be UmA, RamA (Lakshmi) and VANI (Saraswati).

    Devi is like that. Very dynamic. Like "dhUp-chaunv" sunshine-shade that keeps moving.

    There, now I have added "more-confusion-ghee" to the confusion-fire

    Yes,you have added more confusion.I'll ponder about what you have said.

    P.S.

    We usually say this as adding aajya to agni(for those who don't know,adding inflammable material(ex.ghee) to an already fierce Agni or as the English say adding fuel to the fire).This simile reminded me about Sri Krishna assisting Sri Agni Deva to burn the Kandava Vana.

    Here's one, this one is from the Maha Narayana Upanishad of the Taittiriya Aranyaka of the Yajurveda:

    śrīrme bhajatu alakṣmīrme naśyatu ।
    viṣṇumukhā vai
    devāśchandobhirimāॅṃllokānanapajayyamabhyajayan ।
    mahām̐ indro vajrabāhuḥ ṣoḍaśī śarma yacchatu

    I-48: May Sri favour me. May Alakshmi connected with me and mine be destroyed. The gods having Vishnu for their chief (who is the perpetual abode of Sri) by the help of (the means prescribed in) the Vedas won these worlds for themselves free from the fear of enemies. May Indra armed with thunderbolt and worshipful moon grant us happiness.
