So, this sloka, it says one gains a lot of knowledge, wealth and beautiful looks.

1. How much exactly? What if one doesn’t want ALL knowledge of everything, but maybe just scientific knowledge? Would Devi grant all the knowledge in THAT particular area?

2. It also says one becomes so beautiful, that Rati’s chastity is broken. Is this talking about PHYSICAL BEAUTY? Some descriptions of Sloka 99, that the person b comes more beautiful than Manmatha himself. Does that mean this sloka can give one the beauty he desires?

Dear Gayatri madam,

in the second line in this sloka is it sidhilapathi or shittilayati as given here.

I read the sloka in telugu at different places and it is sidhilapthi there.

I am confused.
