Sri

Śrī (standard transliteration[?]) or Sri—pronounced shree—is a Sanskrit title of veneration commonly prefixed to the names of gods as well as men considered great or holy. Śrī is sometimes translated into English as Lord, but this is inaccurate and it is generally agreed that Śrī is best left untranslated.


Sri is also an alternate name of the Hindu goddess Lakshmi.
