Better, indeed, is knowledge than practice (practice without knowledge),
better in turn is meditation,
better still is renunciation of fruit of action;
Supreme Peace immediately follows such renunciation. Gita - 12.12
Why focus on effects, chant with true devotion. May Jagadamba bless you in the e

What is Soundarya Lahari? Why is it important in Shridevi s worship?
Soundarya Lahari is a powerful divine prayer(stotra) partly revealed and partly
composed by Great Universal Master Shri Shankara Bhagavatpadah to express the de
votion and praise the beauty of Devi Mahatripura Sundari. This stotra is a devot
ional hymn loaded with beautiful literary ornaments(alankaras). It has more than
thirty two commentaries on it by famous spiritual Masters. That alone says it a
ll about its extraordinary significance!
Each shloka (verse) is an extremely powerful mantra and has deeper tantricmeanin
gs and effects. Every shloka has its own yantra(mystical diagram) and specific m
ethod of chanting along with offerings to please Tripura Sundari Devi to achieve
a definite goal as described in our Scriptures.
Soundarya Lahari has one hundred shlokasin total. First 41 shlokas are together
called Ananda Lahari(Wave of Bliss). They deal with Shrividya way of worship tha
t includes construction of Srichakra diagram,Kundalini Yoga and mantras(includin
g a powerful fifteen syllable mantra of Shri Lalita Mahatripura Sundari calledpa
nchadshakshari mantra). This is why this hymn is of paramount importance in the
worship of Shri Lalita form of Shridevi.
The next 59 shlokas(viz. Shlokas 42-100) form the second part called Soundarya L
ahari. This section describes the beauty of Shridevi from head to toe in finer d
etails, exhausting almost all literary ornamentation(alankaras) in Sanskrit Lang
uage! In practice, however, entire hymn of 100 slokas is referred to asSoundarya
Lahari(Wave of Beauty).

I don't know of any specific effects. But if you're gonna be chanting only for t
he results, you should think again.
And as of the text itself, it's about the Divine Mother, so if you try to unders
tand the meaning while chanting it, it will help you.
Primarily you should chant out of love for God. In the beginning, it is okay to
"fake it till you make it".

Saundarya lahari contains more than 100 slokas and there is pooja required while
chanting it. The background poojas are tantric vidhis based on Shri Yantram. It
is basically Kundalini Shakti pooja.
I will suggest to find some expert who will guide to do this pooja. Don't try it
yourself by reading books. In Hindu religion if you find something is related t
o Kundalini then it is serious matter and must tak proper guidance. So Saundarya
lahari is not something chanting daily with routine work.
