In Sanskrit literature, Sukta or Suktam is a devotional hymn or song of praise. There are many Suktam in Sanskrit literature in the praise of different Hindu gods and goddesses. Each Suktam praises a single god or goddess. As Purusha Suktam is a Vedic devotional hymn in the praise of Purusha, as Brahman (divyaḥ puruṣaḥ amūrtaḥ), Sri Suktam is a hymn in the praise of “Sri” Devi Mahalakshmi, Primordial Goddess of the Universe, Adi Shakti.
Sri Suktam is revealed by Goddess Lakshmi Herself to Indra (Laksmi Tanta). Sri, Goddess Lakshmi explains the ways and means of rendering the Sri Suktam to Lord Indra also with importance.
