SriSri or Shri (Śrī), —pronounced halfway between sree and shree—is a Sanskrit title of veneration, a Hindu honorific stemming from the Vedic conception of prosperity (see Lakshmi below). It is commonly prefixed to the names of Hindu gods as well as men and women considered great or holy. It is also the standard honorific (akin to Mr. in English) used when referring to an adult male in various Indian languages such as Bengali, Hindi and Sanskrit and sometimes in English as well (in an Indian context). When used as a title for gods, Śrī is sometimes translated into English as Lord, but this is quite inaccurate and it is generally agreed that Śrī is best left untranslated. Its Tamil, essentially South Indian equivalent, is Tiru.
Sri is also a name of the Hindu goddess Lakshmi.
