    SAUNDARYA LAHARI : SHLOKAM NO. 19

    मुखं बिन्दुं कृत्वा कुच युग मधस्तस्य तदधो
    हरार्धं ध्यायेद्यो हरमहिषि ते मन्मथकलाम्
    स सद्यः संक्षोभं नयति वनिता इत्यति लघु
    त्रिलोकीcमप्याशु भ्रमयति रवीन्दुस्तनयुगां

    Mukham bindun kruthva kucha yuga mada sthasya thadha dho
    Harardha dhyayedhyo haramamahishi the manmathakalam
    Sa sadhya samkshebham nayathi vanitha inyathiladhu
    Thrilokimapyasu bramayathi ravindu sthana yugam.

    O’ Devi, Consort of Lord Shiva, the dot in the centre of Sri Chakram is your beautiful face, with two busts just below and still below is the shape which is half of Lord Shiva. He who worships you with the above in mind and with Kamakala form of meditation, not only stirs emotions in the minds of ladies but will also charm the three worlds which have Sun and Moon as busts.

    Kamakala form of meditation is a long process and involves beeja mantrams like “Kleem” etc. which are to be followed only under strict supervision of Sri Vidya Upasakar.

    Regular recitation of Shlokam No. 19 will make the devotee very attractive to opposite gender. This Shlokam is also prescribed for persons have planetary afflications on account of Sun and Moon in their horoscope.

    SAUNDARYA LAHARI : SHLOKAM NO. 20

    किरन्तीमङ्गेभ्यः किरणनिकुरुंबामृतरसं
    हृदि त्वामाधत्ते हिमकरशिलामूर्तिमिव यः।
    स सर्पाणां दर्पं शमयति शकुन्ताधिप इव
    ज्वरप्लुष्टान् दृष्ट्या सुखयति सुधाधारसिरया ॥२०॥

    Kirantim angebhyah kirana-nikurumba'mrta-rasam
    Hrdi tvam adhatte hima-kara-sila murthimiva yah;
    Sa sarpanam darpam samayati sakuntadhipa iva
    Jvara-plustan drshtya sukhayati sudhadhara-siraya.

    Devi showers brightness of a bundle of rays of nectar. A devotee who meditates Devi in in such form and as a statue sculpted out of moon stone, conquers the pride of snakes as Garuda and by his vision (nectar like), can cure persons suffering from high fever and make them happy.

    In Shlokam No. 20, Devi is visualized as a statue sculpted out of moon stone. Besides, the power acquired by the devotee worshipping devi in such form is also shown.

    Regular recitation of Shlokam No. 20 will enable the devotees to remove all toxins from the body and cure from diseases.

    SAUNDARYA LAHARI : SHLOKAM NO. 21

    तटिल्लेखा तन्वीं तपन शशिवैश्वानरमयीं
    निषणां षण्णामप्युपरि कमलानां तवकलाम्
    महापद्माटव्यां मृदित मलमायेन मनसा
    महान्तः पश्यन्तो दधति परमाह्लादलहरीम् ॥२१॥

    Tatil-lekha-thanvim thapana-sasi-vaisvanara-mayim
    Nishannam shannam apy upari kamalanam tava kalaam;
    Maha-padma tavyam mrdita-mala-mayena manasa
    Mahantah pasyanto dadhati parama'hlada-laharim.

    Supreme Goddess is thin as a streak of lightning, shining like Sun, Moon and Agni, seated above the six chakras in the thousand petal lotus in the great lotus forest. Those great souls, who worship/meditate Devi, after wiping their hearts of all dirt and impurities like lust, greed, enjoy the greatest wave of bliss and happiness.

    The six chakras mentioned in this Shlokam No. 21 are the ones mentioned in Shlokam No. 9. A pre condition has been laid down for this Shlokam viz. the devotees should remove all the dirt like lust, greed etc. from their minds before recitation.

    Regular recitation of Shlokam No. 21, will give utmost happiness in the family, ability to conquer the minds of others and peace of mind.

    For better results, the shlokam may be recited 100 times or 500 times in front of a Pancha Mukha Deepam on those Fridays which combine with Pournami. People who consult the author with family conditions in turmoil, have been advised this Shlokam and there have been remarkable positive results.

    SAUNDARYA LAHARI : SHLOKAM NO. 22

    भवानि! त्वं दासे मयि वितर दृष्टिं सकरुणां
    इति स्तोतुं वाञ्छन् कथयति भवनि ! त्वमिति यः।
    तदैव त्वं तस्मै दिशसि निजसायुज्यपदवीम्
    मुकुन्दब्रह्मेन्द्रस्फुटमकुटनीराजितपदाम् ॥२२॥

    Bhavani tvam daase mayi vitara drishtim sakarunam
    Iti sthotum vanchan kadhayati Bhavani tvam iti yah;
    Tadaiva tvam tasmai disasi nija-sayujya-padavim
    Mukunda-brahmendra-sphuta-makuta-nirajita-padam.

    O Devi, when your Das, sincere devotee, prays for your merciful glance to fall on him, even before he says “You Bhavani”, he is granted “Sayujya” status whereby he merges with your holy feet, which have been bathed by bright illumination of the crowns of Vishnu, Brahma and Indra.

    “Sayujya” means merger with the Divine. “Bhavani Tvam” appears twice in this Shlokam. The first one denotes, Bhavani’s Devotee prays for her merciful glance. Second one has a connotation which can mean “Bhavani, I will become you”. The Devotee’s sincere prayer will be accepted by Devi and she grants Sayujya status to him.

    Regular recitation of Shokam No. 22 will give fulfillment of all earthly desires and pleasures. It will also give an ability to befriend the opponent.

    SAUNDARYA LAHARI : SHLOKAM NO. 23

    त्वया हृत्वा वामं वपुर परितृप्तेन मनसा
    शरीरार्धं शम्भोरपरमपि शङ्के हृतमभूत्।
    यदेतत्त्वद्रूपं सकलमरुणाभं त्रिनयनं
    कुचाभ्यामानम्रं कुटिल शशि चूडालमकुटम् ॥२३॥


    Tvaya hrithva vamam vapur aparitripthena manasa
    Sarir'ardham sambhor aparam api sankhe hritham abhut;
    Yad ethat tvadrupam sakalam arunabham trinayanam
    Kuchabhyam anamram kutila-sashi-chuudala-makutam.

    In my mind, I visualize your form with colour of attractive bright red, with three eyes, body just bent with two breasts, with a crown of crescent moon. You have taken one half of the body and not being satisfied with this, you have encroached on the other half body also.

    Shiva and Shakti are one body where Shiva is white in colour and Devi is red. But Devi’s body is appearing fully in red colour and possesses three eyes, crown of crescent moon, it is believed that not having satisfied herself with half body, she has acquired the full body.

    In one sect called Uttarakaulam, there is no separate Shiv Pooja and only Devi pooja is done because it is believed Shiva is merged in Shakti.

    Regular recitation of Shlokam No. 23 will give all prosperity and wealth to devotee. The shlokam is also recommended for people having weak sun or moon in their horoscopes.

    SAUNDARYA LAHARI : SHLOKAM NO. 24

    जगत्सूते धाता हरिरवति रुद्रः क्षपयते
    तिरस्कुर्वन्नेतत् स्वमपि वपुरीशस्तिरयति ।
    सदापूर्वः सर्वं तदिदमनुगृह्णाति च शिवः
    तवाज्ञामालंब्य क्षणचलितयोर्भ्रूलतिकयोः ॥२४॥

    Jagat suthe dhata harir avati rudrah kshapayate
    Tiraskurvan etat svam api vapurisastirayati;
    Sada-purvah sarvam tad idamanugrhnati cha Shiva-
    Stavajnam aalambya kshana-chalitayor bhru-latikayoh.

    Lord Brahma creates this world, Lord Vishnu (Hari) protects it and Lord Rudra destroys it. Maheshwar merges Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Rudra within himself and makes himself also disappear. Sadasiva blesses them all by the holy order given by you (Devi) by a slight quivering of your eye-brows.

    In shlokam No. 24 a reference is clear about the creation, protection and destruction roles of different Lords. It is ultimately Almighty Goddess who controls all these.

    Corresponding Namam in Lalitha Sahasranamam is :

    Srishti Kartri Brahma Rupaa Gopti Govinda Rupiney
    Samhaarini Rudrarupa Tirodhaanakareswari,
    Sadaa Shivaanugrahadaa Pancha krutya Paraayana!

    Devi! You are the Srishti Kartri being Brahma Rupini; the Goptri or the Protector as Govinda Rupini; Samhaarini or the Annihilator as of Rudra Rupa; the Tirodhaanakari or as the withdrawing Swarupini as Ishwara and finally the Sadaa Shiva who provides Anugraha or impetus to Re-Create again; such are the Five Swarupas of Yourself Devi viz. Brahma- Vishnu- Rudra-Ishwara and Sada Shiva; You Devi ! Are thus the Pancha Krutya Paraayana or the Practitioner of Five Sacred Deeds!)

    Regular recitation of Shlokam No. 24 will remove all sorts of fears from the minds of devotees, as also protects from curse of deceased ancestors.

    SAUNDARYA LAHARI : SHLOKAM NO. 25


    त्रयाणां देवानां त्रिगुण जनितानां तव शिवे
    भवेत् पूजा पूजा तव चरणयोर्या विरचिता ।
    तथा हि त्वत्पादो द्वहन मणिपीठस्य निलये
    स्थिता ह्येते शश्वन्मुकुलित करोत्तंस मकुटाः ॥२५॥

    Trayanam devanam thri-guna-janitanam tava Sive
    Bhavet puja puja tava charanayor ya virachita;
    Tatha hi tvat-pado'dvahana-mani-pithasya nikate
    Sthita hy'ete sasvan mukulita-karottamsa-makuta

    O Devi, consort of Shiva, pooja done at your Holy Feet is the Pooja done to Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra who have appeared based on your three properties. The Trinity always stand with their folded hands on their crown, near the gem studded low stool which supports your Lotus Feet.

    The three properties mentioned in Shlokam No. 25 are Rajo Gunam, Satwa Gunam and Tamo Gunam. Regular recitation of Shlokam No. 25 will give high power, authority and increase in income.

    SAUNDARYA LAHARI : SHLOKAM NO. 26

    विरिञ्चिः पञ्चत्वं व्रजति हरिराप्नोति विरतिं
    विनाशं कीनाशो भजति धनदो याति निधनम् ।
    वितन्त्री माहेन्द्रीविततिरपि सम्मीलित दृशा
    महासंहारेऽस्मिन् विहरति सति त्वत्पतिरसौ ॥२६॥


    Virincih panchatvam vrajati harir apnoti virathim
    Vinasam kinaso bhajati dhanado yati nighanam;
    Vitandri mahendri vithathir api sammeelita-drsa
    Maha-samhare smin viharati sati tvat-patirasau.

    At the time of deluge (Maha Pralaya), Brahma, Vishnu, Yama and Kubera cease to exist. The indras close their eyes one after another and go to ever lasting sleep. At this stage of deluge, Oh Sati, your consort plays with you gleefully.


    Shlokam No. 26 is fairly clear. Only Lord Shiva and Shakti remain indestructible. Devi is referred to as “Sati” which term denotes Pati Vrata Stree.

    The following line in Lalitha Sahasranamam is equally important :
    Maheshwara Mahaa Kalpa Mahaa Taandava Saakshini,
    Which means : “You witnessed the Cosmic Dance of Maheshwara at the end of Maha Kalpa”.

    Regular recitation of Shlokam No. 26 will give victories over enemies both within the house and in the outside world. The devotee will also gain self confidence.

    SAUNDARYA LAHARI : SHLOKAM NO. 27

    जपो शिल्पः शिल्पं सकलमपि मुद्राविरचना
    गतिः प्रादक्षिण्य क्रमण मशना द्याहुति विधिः ।
    प्रणामः संवेशः सुख मखिल मात्मार्पणदृशा
    सपर्या पर्याय स्तव भवतु यन्मे विलसितम् ॥२७॥

    Japo jalpah shilpam sakalam api mudra-virachana
    Gatih pradaksinya-kramanam asanady'ahuti-vidhih;
    Pranamah samvesah sukham akilam atmarpana-drsa
    Saparya-paryayas tava bhavatu yan me vilasitam.

    O Devi, with total surrender to you in my mind, let all my utterings be chanting of your name, let all actions with my hands be “Mudras” (signs of worship), let my walk be treated as circumambulations (pradakshinams), let the act of eating and drinking by me be equal to homam (fire sacrifice) to you, let my posture of sleeping be equal to prostrations (namaskarams) to you, let all my simple enjoyable acts/deeds be synonymous with my Pooja to you.

    There are ten Mudras using fingers in Devi worship. In Lalitha Sahasranamam there is a namam :
    “Dasa Mudra Samaaraadhya”

    The Ten Mudras or hand-finger gestures are Sankshobhini (Jolting), Baana (Arrow), Aakarshana (Attraction), Vashya (Power), Unmaada (Ecstasy), Mahaankusha (the Great Goad), Khechary (Flying), Vijayini (Victory), Trikhanda (Three Sections) and Dhanu (Bow). In some texts, two more Mudras are mentioned viz. Vidraveeni and Yoni.

    In Shlokam No. 27 the two words are seen which are Saparya Paryaya : Saparya is Pooja and Paryaya is Synonymous. All the actions of the devotee are considered to be synonymous with Pooja of Goddess. The meaning is quite simple.

    Regular recitation of Shlokam No. 27 will give ultimate knowledge to the devotee. This shlokam is beneficial for students who are learing classical dance and music.

    SAUNDARYA LAHARI : SHLOKAM NO. 28

    सुधामप्यास्वाद्य प्रतिभय जरा मृत्युहरिणीं
    विपद्यन्ते विश्वे विधि शतमखाद्या दिविषदः ।
    करालं यत्क्ष्वेलं कबलितवदः कालकलना
    न शंभोस्तन्मूलं तव जननि ताटङ्क महिमा ॥२८॥

    Sudham apy asvadya pratibhaya-jaraa-mrtyu-harinim
    Vipadyante visve Vidhi-Satamakhadya divishadah;
    Karalam yat ksvelam kabalitavatah kaala-kalana
    Na Sambhos tan-mulam tava janani tadanka-mahima.

    O Devi, Even after consuming the divine nectar which can prevent aging and death, Lord Indra and Lord Brahma perished in Deluge (Maha Pralaya). But Lord Shiva who had consumed the strong poison, did not lose his life due to the power of your Holy Ear Studs (Tatanga).

    Learned people always advise all married ladies to definitely wear ornaments pertaining to ear. The shlokam No. 28 directly or indirectly highlights the power of Pati Vrata Stree’s prayers which are capable of giving long life to their husbands.

    Regular recitation of shlokam No. 28 gives protection from accidents, untimely death and removes fear from mind as also enables attainment of desires.
