About the CD

Lalita Mahatripurasundari is the central goddess to the Sri Vidya tradition the (School of Auspicious Wisdom". Within the Sri Vidya tradition the listing of names is often central, as these names are the deity’s mantras (Subtle forms of the deity). Lalita has 15 attendants the Nitya Devis. She resides in three nadi-s (nerve channels) namely sushhumnaa, pingalaa and idaa. She is the ruler of the three shaktis-ichchaa (will), jnana (knowledge) and kriyaa (action). She pervades all the three words heaven earth and the nether worlds. She is the controller of all the three bodies sthula (gross). Suukshhma (subtle) and Kaarana (causal). She is the self which is present through the three states of existence jaagrat (waking), svapna (dream), and sushhupti (deep sleep). Though she is above all guna-s, she pervades the three modes of energy sattva (purity), rajas (mobility) and tamas (inertia). Brahmanda-purana exotols the Goddess Lalita as the saviour of the world Lalitaa trishati in which 300 names of the goddess is featured. Adi Shankaraachaarya has written a commentary for this. Lilita trishati is important like Lalitaa sahasranaama. Agastya told Hayagriva that though he has heard about Sri Chakra upaasana and the Lalitaa sahasranaama but he lack the satisfaction of knowing all secrets. Lord Hayagriva advised Agastya that the worship of the goddess will achieve the purpose of life, gives liberation from bondage very easily and taught the secret Lalita trishati.
