Prayer To God to give our wife a long life aka octet of long life to the better half

Prayer to God to give long life to  our better half

Today is the day when your wife   would pray for a long life to you  .I was wondering  if there is any prayer at all   praying for long life to our dear wife , whose only  ambition seems to be to make your life pleasant  , provide you constant companionship  , to advise you  to take the correct decision   in family affairs   and so on. She is  also the  greatest  wealth  that an old man like me can have  because   without even a tinge of selfish  desires  she would always  be with me . I could not find any such prayer   and so decided   to write a prayer myself.  I hope  all husbands  would  enjoy reading it  and after reading it pray  for  a long life to your better half

Prayer  To God  to give our wife a long life aka octet of long life to the better half

By
P.R.Ramachander

1.Oh Lord  Parameshwara, Oh Lord  Viswanatha, Oh Lord Ardha nareeswara,
Who  had given half his body   to his wife so that  she would be  forever with him,
Oh Lord Soma Skandha  , who shines    with his happy family around  him,
Please  give my ever loving wife  a very long life  of joy  and pleasure.


2.Oh Lord Mahavishnu  , Oh Lord Anantha Narayana, Oh Lord Ranga nadha ,
Who keeps his  darling wife   along with him as Kausthubha  on his chest  ,
Oh Lord Rama  , Oh Lord Krishna , Oh Lord Varaha  ,Oh  lord of all devas,
Please  give my ever loving wife  a very long life  of joy  and pleasure.


3.Oh Lord Skanda, Oh Lord Guha , Oh Lord   Subrahmanya , Oh Lord Velayudha,
Who blesses  us all  with joy and prosperity  sitting on a peacock  with his two wives,
Oh Consort of   Sashti devi,  Oh darling  of Goddess  Valli, oh nephew  of Lord Vishnu,
Please  give my ever loving wife  a very long life  of joy  and pleasure.


4.Oh Lord Ganesa  , Oh Lord  Vigneswara  . Oh Lord Ekadantha  ,
Who still is searching for a wife as great   as his  mother ,
Oh  Vigneshwara , Oh Lord Maha Ganapathe  , Oh Sidhi Vinayaka ,
Please  give my ever loving wife  a very long life  of joy  and pleasure.


5.Oh Goddess Parvathi , Oh Goddess  Sakthi  , Oh Goddess Kamakshi,
 Who never prefers   to live   away    from her husband   even for a second,
Oh Shivakama  Sundari, Oh Visalakshi  , Oh  Meenakshi
Please  give my ever loving wife  a very long life  of joy  and pleasure.


6.Oh Goddess  Mahalakshmi , Oh goddess  sitting  on the red lotus flower,
Who knows that her company  is preferred  by Lord Vishnu  over all other wealth,
Oh sister  of the moon , Oh daughter  of the ocean  of milk, Oh goddess  of wealth,
Please  give my ever loving wife  a very long life  of joy  and pleasure.


7.Oh  Goddess  Saraswathi  , Oh Goddess  who holds   the Veena   and the book,
Who never leaves her husband so that  she can give intelligence to his creations.
Oh Vani  who sits  on the white lotus flower, Oh Sharadha  who wears white silk,
Please  give my ever loving wife  a very long life  of joy  and pleasure.


8.Oh Lord Hanuman  , Oh Anjaneya  , Oh son of lord wind God , Oh Maruthi,
Who knew that  his master  Lord Rama   can never  be happy  without Sita,
Oh Lord who crossed  the sea, oh lord who set fire   to the city of Lanka ,
Please  give my ever loving wife  a very long life  of joy  and pleasure.


Result of this prayer

She who came  leaving   her family  and uprooted  herself  to be with you,
She who was a constant companion  amidst sorrow and joy, through thick and thin,
She who is   the greatest   wealth any one can have   in this and the other would,
Would  always be with you  giving you joy  and help ,if this prayer  is answered.

As a husband of 29 years, I appreciate the sentiment. The slokas are really beautiful. Was this a composition in English or did you compose in Sanskrit? If so, I would love to see the Sanskrit original as well. THank you.
