By placing the Goddess in the heart region while chanting the chosen sloka, the wise practitioner superimposes the Divine Mother on his/her jeevatma and allows Her to take over. There could be no better meditation than that! While meditating and chanting (mentally after 11 times of loud chanting), the content of the sloka describing the Goddess, gradually starts applying itself to the practitioner as well, as he/she is replaced by the supremacy of the Divine Mother by placing Her in the heart region. Therefore, the overall meaning and the essence of the concerned sloka begin to unfold in the life/nature/and quality of the practitioner too! The devotee witnesses the meaning of the sloka manifesting in his/her life. The above is easier said than done. For perfect meditation, it is necessary to "believe" that Goddess is certainly within oneself, and while mental chanting, it is important to curb the movements of the tongue. Ultimately, it helps a great deal to develop love and adoration for the Goddess. Bhakthi is misinterpreted as respect and most of us pray in fear and great reverence of our chosen deity. The devotee should feel overflowing love for Her and a joyous reciprocation coming from Her. This interacation between the devotee and the Goddess should be felt by the former as a secret that no one knows of ! The practice of such feelings gradually enlightens the devotee and it finally dawns on him/her that the carefully woven fantasy and the delicious Truth are one and the same! First and foremost, it is essential to start by praying to one's chosen Guru, and who better than the author of this most aesthetic creation, Sri Adi Sankaracharya?

When the body feels heated or feverish, a simple offering of a quarter glass of boiled milk with raisins and sugarcandy (atleast 16 to 20 raisins and 10 pieces of kalkand) should be given to the Goddess and consumed by the devotee.
