Lalitopakhyana: The story of the Goddess Lalita Introduction This stotra hymn which praises occurs in Brahmanda purana Old epic of the universe in the Chapter on discussion between Hayagreeva and Agasthya. Hayagreeva is an incarnation of Vishnu with the horse head and is believed to be the storehouse of knowledge. Agasthya is one of the great sages of yore who is one of the stars of the constellation great bear.
At his request Hayagreeva taught him the most holy names of Lalitha. Parama shiva is one of the trinity of Hindu pantheons who is in charge of destruction. He married Sathi, the daughter of Daksha. Daksha and Paramashiva were not getting on well and consequently he did not invite Paramashiva for one of the great fire sacrifices that he conducted.
Daksha insulted her husband and she jumped in to the fire and ended her life. However this incident of his most loveing wife Sati upset Paramashiva and he entered into deep meditation.
Sathi took rebirth as the daughter of the mountain Parvathy Himalayas and started doing penance on Shiva for getting him as her husband. The devas faced a very great enemy in Sura Padma who had a boon that he could be killed only by a son of Shiva and Parvathy. So to wake Shiva from his deep meditation the devas deputed Manmatha, the God of love who shot his flower arrows at Paramashiva.
Paramashiva woke up and opened his third eye and burnt the God of love into ashes. Heeding for their request Paramashiva stared at the ashes of Manmatha. From the ashes came Bhandasura Who made all the world as impotent and ruled from the city called Shonitha pura.
He started troubling the devas. The devas then sought the advice of Sage Narada who advised them to conduct a fire sacrifice.
From the fire rose Sri Lalitha Tripura Sundari. She was extremely beautiful, having dark thick long hair with scent of Champaka, Asoka and Punnaga flowers, having the musk thilaka on her forehead, Having eyelids which appeared as if it is the gate of the house of God of love ,having eyes which were like fish playing in the beauteous lake of her face, Having nose with studs which shined more than the stars, Having ears with sun and moon as studs, having cheeks which were like mirror of Padmaraga, Having beautiful rows of white teeth, Chewing Thamboola with camphor, having voice sweeter than the sound emanating from Veena of Sarswathi, Having such a beautiful smile that Lord Shiva himself could not take his eyes off, Wearing Mangala soothra and necklaces with beautiful shining dollars, Having breasts which were capable of buying the invaluable love of Kameswara Lord Shiva , having row of faint beautiful hair raising from her belly, having stomach with three pretty folds, wearing red silk tied with a string with red bells.
Having thighs which steal the heart of Shiva Kameshwara, Having knees which looked like crowns made of precious gems, having voluptuous legs, having upper part of the feet resembling the back of tortoise, Having feet which resembled the lamps made of gems which could dispel worries from the mind of devotees and a body with the golden red colour. Sree nagara had 25 streets circling it. They are made of iron, steel, copper, lead, alloy made of five metals, silver, gold, the white Pushpa raga stone, the red Padmaraga stone.
Onyx, diamond, Vaidoorya, Indra neela topaz , pearl, Marakatha, coral, nine gems and mixture of gems and precious stones. In the eighth street was the forest of Kadambas. This is presided by Syamala. In the fifteenth street live the Ashta Digh palakas. In the sixteenth lives Varahi alias Dandini who is her commander in chief. Here Syamala also has a house. In the seventeenth street live the different Yoginis.
In the eighteenth street lives Maha Vishnu. In the nineteenth street lives Esana, in the twentieth Thara Devi, twenty first Varuni , the twenty second Kurukulla who presides over the fort of pride, twenty third Marthanda Bhairawa, twenty fourth the moon and twenty fifth Manmatha presiding over the forest of love.
In the center of Srinagara is the Maha Padma Vana The great lotus forest and within it the Chintamani Griha The house of holy thought ,In its north east is the Chid agni kunda and on both sides of its eastern gate are the houses of Manthrini and Dhandini.
On its four gates stand the Chaduramnaya gods for watch and ward. And within it is the Sri chakra. In the Sri Chakra are the following decorations viz.
The devas prayed her to kill Bhandasura. While Sampatkari devi was the captain of the elephant regiment, Aswarooda devi was the captain of the cavalry. The army was commanded by Dhandini riding on the Charriot called Giri Chakra assisted by Manthrini riding on the chariot called Geya Chakra. Jwala malini protected the army by creating a fire ring around it. ParaShakthi rode in the center on the chariot of Sri Chakra.
When the Asuras created blockade for the marching army, Sri Lalitha Tripura sundari created Ganesha with the help of Kameshwara to remove the blockade.
The Devi created the ten avatars of Vishnu and destroyed them. She killed all his army using Pasupathastra and killed him with Kameshwarasthra. The gods then praised her. She then recreated Manmatha for the good of the world. This story is contained in the first 84 names of the first 34 slokas of Lalitha Sahasra nama.
This is also called the Rahasya Nama Sahasra the thousand secret names. Reading it , meditating on the meaning of the names would lead to the fulfillment of all the wishes of the devotees.
Lalitha Sahasranamam Phala Sruthi Lyrics
Ramachander The phala sruti of the Lalitha Sahasranama is considered to be a seperate stotra from the Sahasranama unlike in the Vishnu Sahasranama where the phala sruti is a part of the stotra. Nama sahasram khaditham they ghatothbhava, Rahasyaanam rahasyam cha Lalitha preethi dayakam, Aanena sadrusam stotram na bhootham na bhavishyathi. This type of prayer has never existed in the past or will exist in future. Sarva roga prasamanam sarva sampath pravardhanam, Sarvaapath mruthyu shamanam akala mruthyu nivaranam.
