MAHA LAKSHMI SUTRA

Om Shri Mahaa Lakshmiyei Soha


The Palchenmo Sutra is Herein Contained (Sanskrit: Mahashri Sutra. Tibetan: Palchen Moi Do.)

Homage to all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas!


Thus I have heard at one time. The Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror, the Blessed
One, was abiding in the blissful realm of Sukhavati. At that time, the powerful lord, the
Bodhisattva Mahasattva, the noble Avalokiteshvara went to the place where the Blessed One
was, prostrated at the noble feet of the Blessed One, touching his head to the ground, and,
circumambulated the Blessed One three times, sat down to one side. Then, beholding the
glorious goddess Mahashri, the Blessed One spoke these words to the powerful lord, the noble
Avalokiteshvara: If any fully-ordained monk, fully-ordained nun, novice monk, novice nun, or
anyone else should come to keep, to read, to write down, or to have others write down the
twelve names of the glorious goddess Mahashri, their poverty will be eliminated, and they will
become prosperous.
By saying this, all those gathered around the Buddha proclaimed, Make it so. Then, the
Blessed One, the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror bestowed the twelve names of
Mahashri:
PAL-DEN MA /
PAL-TRI MA /
PAD-MAI
TRENG-WA CHEN /

NOR-GYI DAG-MO / KARMO /


DRAG-PA CHEN-MO / PADMAI CHEN /
JED-PA MO /

OD-CHEN MO /
ZEY-JIN MA /
RIN-PO CHE RAB-JINMO
PAL-CHEN MO /

She Who is Endowed with Splendor / She Who is Auspiciously Resplendent / Possessor of a
Garland of Lotuses / Lady-Lord of Riches /She Who is White / She Who is Greatly Renowned /
Lotus Eye / She Who Makes Things Happen / She of Great Light / She Who Gives Food /

She Who Wholeheartedly Gives Precious Gems / She Who is Greatly Resplendent /
The mantra which contains the twelve names:
SAYAD YATHEDNA:
DZINI GRINI SARWA ARTHA SADHANI SHASHINA ALAKSHI MANA
NASHAYA SIDDHANATU MANTRAPADEY SVAHA
OM VIGUNI PARAMA SUBHAGEY SVAHA /
Anyone who recites this Sutra three times will become victorious over all inauspicious
circumstances. They will become endowed with excellent fortune, and will possess unceasing
wealth. Furthermore, by reciting this Sutra, everyone will regard you as their only child, will be
delighted by you, and will act in accordance with your wish. If one should constantly read this,
then even if Brahma commits wrathful actions, one will not be harmed, and will come to serve
under many Buddhas!
The Transcendent Conqueror spoke these words, and the Bodhisattva Mahasattva, the
powerful lord, the noble Avalokiteshvara rejoiced; he thoroughly praised the noble speech of
the Transcendent and Accomplished Conqueror.
Thus, the Mahashri Sutra is complete.
(May be the merit of praising you in this way all-sentient beings be happy, free from suffering, illness and
poverty, may they be truly prosperous by realizing that generosity, contentment and loving kindness are
the root of all good in our lives)
