    Confused Lakshmi Ashtakam - a correction

    0 Not allowed!
    Recently a member has posted a correction to Lakshmi Ashtotharam. In the same vein I'd like to point out a correction in stanza -2 of Mahalakshmi Ashtakam.
    Many books read as "namaste gardarude, dolasura bhayankari". I'm told it should read as: "namaste garudarude, kolasurd bhayankari". Mahalakshmi came to reside in Kolhapur, Maharashtra, after killing Kolasura, and hence the namavali - kolasura bhayankari. I invite comments from learned readers on the same. If it is correct, we can correct the recitation in futre, as Mahalakshmi Ashtakam is one of the most commonly recited by many at homes, and in temples.
