SRI

The word Sri represents Goddess Lakshmi (Goddess of Prosperity). Further, it stands for abundance, auspiciousness, affluence, grace, wealth, light, splendor, beauty, loveliness and authority. It is also an honorific prefixed with the People those who are from East, especially a person who belongs Vedic way of living as a title of respect and esteem.

The word Sri means where one love to cling to or to depend upon is again nothing but oneself or the God. In our culture, the word Sri is being used before any Deities and even before sacred texts like Sri Ramayana, Srimad Bhagavad Gita etc. when it is used before a person, not only it serves as an honorific prefix like Mr./Mrs./Miss but also it reminds us to get connected with the totality all the time at any circumstances. In fact, we represent first totality and then individual. But unfortunately, we express our individuality first and then come totality. That’s why the more individuality in our life, the more problem we go through. To lessen the individuality in our day to day life we need to get connected with totality; we need to bring more and more Isvara in one’s life. Let this Sri help all of us to get connected with the totality and allow ourselves to grow out of our problems is my sincere prayer to the ultimate mother Sri… - Swami Ananda Chaitanya
