Lalita Sahasranama

LALITA SAHASRANAMA

INTRODUCTION

Lalita Sahasranama is a sacred text of Hindus, and this Stotra can be found in the Brahmanda Purana. The Lalita Sahasranama is the thousand names of Ma Lalita, a form of Ma Shakti Devi. It is a popular text similar to the Vishnu Sahasranama, and it would be recited mostly by the devotees of Ma Shakti Devi. This text was written by eight goddesses based on the instructions given by Ma Lalita.

Ma Lalita contains the aspect of the Tridevis, Ma Shakti, Saraswati and Lakshmi. The Lalita sahasranama would be recited in homes, temples, and at the time of doing Yagnas.

There are exactly 1000 names, in the Lalita Sahasranama, and as per the holy Brahmanda Purana, Lord Hayagriva, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, had taught to Rishi Agastiya, about the thousand holiest names of Ma Lalita. In the temple located at Thirumeyachur, Rishi Agastya had                              learnt this wonderful sahasranama from Lord Hayagriva.

Ma Lalita Devi’s significance is unlimited. She is the mother of the entire universe, and she is the one, who protects the entire universe from destruction. Those who read the Lalita Sahasranama, would be relieved from their sins and diseases, and they would prosper in their lives. Famous Rishis like Agastiya, Markandeya and Narada have recited this Sahasranama, and due to that, they have got the blessings of Ma Lalita.

At this present period, chanting of Slokas and the names of the gods and goddesses would bring goodness in our lives, unknown fear would be removed from our mind, and we would get boldness, courage and wisdom in our lives. Once, when the divine devas have completed their period in heaven, and when they were about to return to the earth, Lord Indra had advised them to chant the Lalita Sahasranama, in order to live in the heaven for an extended period. The Devas have also happily recited the Lalita Sahasranama, and as a result, they were stayed in the heaven for a long period.

Hence, let us recite this wonderful Sahasranama of Ma Lalita and be blessed.
