Dharma or Virtue, Artha or the Means of Accomplishment, Kaama or Objectives , and finally  Moksha or the Final Redemption. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[* Dwadashadityas are Indra, Dhata , Parjanya,  Mitra, Aryama,  Pusha, Shakra, Varuna, Bhaga, Twashta, Viviswan , Amshuman and Vishnu as per Brahma Purana].

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gargya Maharshi further requested Sanat Kumara  that the great opulence of Maha Lakshmi’s names was such as to  guide the Worthy to follow Virtue , that Wealth was the most essential input to lead to Dharma  and through it to achieve the Final Goal of Salvation.

The Lakshmi Sahasra Naama was earlier commended by Brahma, Vishnu, Maha Deva and Mahendra as its mere recitation would destroy poverty and fulfill all kinds of human objectives).

In acknowledgement of her approval of the Prayers, she replied to the TrimMurtis as follows:                                            Maha Lakshmirvaacha: Namnaamsashta sahasrammey pramadwaapi yassrukrut, Kirtayetkuley satyamvasaamya Chandra Taarakam/ Kim punarniyamaa jjaptur madeka sharanasyacha,Matru vatsaanu kampaaham poshikaa syaamaharnisham/ Mannama smarataam lokey durlabham naasti chintitam, Matprasaadena Sarvepi swasyeshtaartha mavaapyatha/ Luptavaishnava dharmasya madvrateshwavakirninah, Bhakti prapatti heenasya vandhyo naamnaam japopimey/ Tasmaada -vashyam tairdoshairviheenah Paapavarjitah,Japetsaashtasahasram mey naamnaam pratyahamaadaraat/ Saakshaadalakshmi putropi moodhopi vikalah patitopicha, Avashaat praapnuyyaad bhaagyam matprasadena kevala/ Spruheyamachiraaddevaa Varadaanaaya jaapinah, Dadaami Sarvamishtaartham Lakshmiti smarataam dhruva/ Ityuktwaantardadhey Lakshmir Vaishnavi Bhavatkalaa/ ( May those who rendered my thousand names with complete dedication be truly blessed with name and fame till such times as Surya and Chandra shine on the firmament. Is it necessary for me to reiterate that as a mother I should  protect them day in and day out since they have submitted  to me with total dedication. Those who take my name with sincerity have nothing to fear and my grace shall always fulfill every wish of theirs. I assure all those who render my names are granted full contentment ,even if they disregard the  Principles of Dharma that Vishnu precsribed or if they do not engage themselves  in High Devotional Acts adderssed even to me! Those who are illfated with poverty and penury, misfortune and lack of intiative, dull and lazy, physically challenged or mentally unsound,  do deserve my Grace and Consideration, if only they are genuinely devotional taking my nanes with passion and intensity. Having blessed all likewise, Maha Lakshmi disappeared).                                                               Sanatkumara Uvacha: Ishtaapurtamcha sukrutam bhaagadevamcha chintitam, Tadetatpravadaam -yadya Lakshmi naama sahasrakam, Yoginah pathata Kshipram chintitaarthanavaapsyatha/ (Addressing the congregation of Munis, the Illustrious Son of Brahma, Maharshi Sanatkumara concluded the rendering of Shri Lakshmi Sahasra Naamaaavali and stated that as far as Devatas were concerned they have the means of Yagnas to secure their shares of blessings from Paramatma; but in case of mortals, one great adnantage is indeed available to Yogis and such noble beings in the form of  rendings of Lakshmi Sahasra naama by means of which propitousness is assured in their on-going lives and also the means of attainng Salvation)  Gaargya Uvacha: Sanatkumara Yogendra Ityukvaasa Dayanidhih, Anugrahyayayou Kshipram taamscha Dwadasha yoginah/ Tasmaadeydrahasyamcha gopyamjapyam prayatnatah, Ashtamya -amcha Chaturdasashyam Navamyaam Bhrigu vaasarey/ Pouramasyamamaayamcha Parvakaaley Visheshatah, Japedwaa Nitya kaaryesh Sarvaankaamaan -avaapnuyaat/ (As Maharshi made an exit after the rendering of Shri Lakshmi Sahasra Naamaavali, Garya Muni concluded his address to the Twelve Yogis that the Superlative Rendering of this most effective Supplication to Maha Lakshmi Devi is best performed in utmost secrecy and regard, preferably on Ashtaami Tithis, Chaturdashis, Navamis,  Fridays, Pournamis,Amavasyas and especially on Parva Dinas or Festival Days. Indeed such dedicated and most sincere Sahasra Naama would usher on extreme propitiousness and unreserved fulfillment of desires and ambitions.)

The above Vishnu Sahasranaama bestows all kinds of ‘Siddhis’ (Accomplishments) and fulfills all desires. Those who read or hear the ‘Stotra’ with concentration and earnestness during Three Sandhyas a day would for certain become free from past and present sins. After reading the Stotra, a Devotee should sincerely greet Bhagavan Vishnu and read: Sahasraakshah Sahasraanghrih Sahasravadanojjvalah, Sahasranaamanthaakshah Sahasrabhuja the Namaha / (Source: Avanti Khanda of Skanda Purana)
