Namagiri Thayar (in Tamil that's நாமகிரித்தாயார்), is a Hindu goddess worshipped in Namagiri in modern-day Tamil Nadu, India, being the consort of Mahavishnu according to Hindu theology. She is significant for being influential in the life of early 20th-century mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (22 December 1887 – 26 April 1920), as he oft credited her for the discovery of his mathematical theorems.

Srinivasa himself describes the nature of the dreams:

"While asleep I had an unusual experience. There was a red screen formed by flowing blood as it were. I was observing it. Suddenly a hand began to write on the screen. I became all attention. That hand wrote a number of results in elliptic integrals. They stuck to my mind. As soon as I woke up, I committed them to writing..."[1]

It is believed by some devotees of the that the following stotras improves math skills, as Ramanujan was fond of chanting it[2][3][4]:


श्रीविद्या मन्त्र रत्न प्रकटित विभवा
श्रीसुबला पूर्ण कामा सर्वेसि प्रार्थिता
सकल सुरनुता सर्वे साम्राज्य धात्री
लक्ष्मी श्रीवेद गर्भा विदुरतु मदीया
विश्व कल्याण भूमा विश्व क्षेमात्म योगा
विमल गुणवती विष्णु वक्षःस्थलस्य
