It has three sections (kutas), each ending with the mantra Hrim, which mantra by itself can be used to worship Tripura Sundari or Lalita. KA E I LA HRIM HA SA KA HA LA HRIM SA KA LA HRIM The above Pachadasi Mantra is derived from the following verse, KAMOYONIH KAMLA VAJRAPANIR GUHA HASA MATRISHVABHRAMINDRA PUNAR GUHA SAKALA MAYEYA CHA PURUCHCHAIVA VISHVAMATADI VIDDYOM KAMA (KA), YONI(AYE), KAMLA (EEE), VAJRAPANI INDRA (LA), GUHA (HRING), HASA VARNAS MATRISHVA-VAYU (KA), ABHRA (HA) INDRA (LA), PUNAH GUHA HRING, SAKALA VARNAS AND MAYA HRING There are many ways to explain this mantra. Whole books have been written on it. Below is a short examination of its syllables Relative to the first of the three sections of the mantra: Ka is desire or the creator. E is Maya or the power of illusion. I is Vishnu or the Divine ruling power. La is the power of bliss. Relative to the second section: Ha is space or breathSa is time. Ka again is creation. Ha is breath or spirit renewed in energy. La again is bliss. Relative to the third section: Sa is time as eternity or totality Ka is origin and also the unknown. La again is bliss. Hrim repeated three times brings about a triple transformation of our nature. Srimadded at the end is the crowning glory and realisation The first set of mantras is the head of the Goddess, the second from her neck to her hips, and the third the region below the hips.
