I. Sri Kramam
Nature of Lalita: Purpose
Lalita is a Goddess who is transcendental and immanent (existing beyond the
known and also in the known). Her main rasa is Sringara or the erotic sentiment.
Dharma, artha and kama are all obtained Herea moksa is obtained Here and There by the
upasana (regular worship) of Sri Lalita, whose mūla mantra is Panchadasaksari (15-
lettered mantra beginning with the letter ‘ka’). Upasana of this Brahma Vidya is given
fully here without any omissions.
The tradition followed here is that given by Guru Dattatreya to Parasurama, who
has codified it in his Kalpa Sutras. Dattatreya is a combination of the determination of
Brahma (iccha sakti), the knowledge of Visnu (jnana sakti) and the action of siva (kriya
sakti).
The other tradition comes from Daksinamurti. It follows an identical procedure to
this except that there are no external props required for puja, such as a Sri Yantra or a
suvasini, etc. It is fully meditative in character. It demands a study of the vedas for 18
years under a proper Guru before this sadhana is taken up. As such, it cannot be
prescribed for all people in the present age of Kali. The Dattatreya tradition does not
require such austerities. It can be performed by all people irrespective of caste, colour,
creed or religion. Although it is an external worship, it combines in it all the benefits of
internal worship too. Because of the external nature of the worship, it can help others also
in getting liberated.

1. Guru Mantra
Recite the guru mantra twice with the Mrgha (deer) mudra on top of the head.

Aim Hrim Srim Aim Klim Souh


Hamsah sivah Soham Hasakhaphrem
Hasaksa malavarayum Hasaum
Sahaksa malavarayim Sahauh
Svarupa Nirupana Hetave Svagurave
Sri Annapurnamba Sahita
Sri Amritananda Natha
Sri Guru Sri Padukam Pujayami Tarpayami Namah
In the above, insert the names of the Guru Patni and the Guru who have given you diksa.
The meaning of the mantra is roughly as follows:

Knowledge about the nature of illusion and the nature of grace, of creation, protection
and absorption, life-breath siva, sakti. I am all that I see. Eliminate the names and the
forms in my mind for space travel. Move the Kundalini from ajna to Muladhara and up
toVisuddhi and vice versa. That such is my nature is proved to me by my Sri Guru’s
Power and Sri Guru. I worship the two feet of Devī as the feet of my Guru with flowers
and with water.

2. Morning Meditation – Devi’s Form


From Muladhara to Brahmarandhra, flashing like a crore of lightning: throwing out red
streams of corona from the red fire ball of sun in the early morning. Such is the
appearance of the fundamental knowledge that is Devī. (By this meditation, all sins are
eliminated). Recite 15 times the Panchadasi Mantra of Devi given below:

Ka e i la hrim ha sa ka ha la hrim sa ka la hrim


3. Offering Arghyam to Surya
Join your open palms with chin mudra. Take a handful of water and drop it on a plate

times)

Aim hrim Srim Sa ka la hrim tannah klinne pracodayat
Finish the bath and if possible, recite Sri Suktam or Panchadasi Mantra.

5. Ganapati Dhyanam
Chant any Ganapati mantra or just recite the following:

Om …Gam… Gam… Gam… Gam …Gam……… Gam… Gam…


Ganapataye namaha
6. Flowers to Guru’s Light
Light two lamps. The lamp with oil has a red wick. It is to your right and Devī’s left. The
lamp with a white wick dipped in ghee and camphor is towards your left and Devī’s right.
Offer a white flower to the ghee lamp and a red flower to the oil lamp saying:

Aim hrim Srim Rakta dvadasa sakti yuktaya dvipa nathaya namah
This means: to the Guru who is in the form of this light here, accompanied by the 12
saktis always attached to him, I request him to illuminate me as to the nature of
immanence and transcendence.

7. Samkalpam

blowing on it. ‘Yam’ is the wind. Release your breath.

Take a deep breath again.


Keep saying ‘ram’.
Set your body on fire. The fire is burning furiously. ‘Ram’ is the fire. At the end of the
fire, your body is reduced to ashes called vibhuti. Release your breath.

Take a deep breath.


Keep saying ‘vam’.

Great clouds gather, a thunder and lightning occurs and an incessant rain falls. ‘Vam’ is
the rain. The ashes are wetted by nectar ‘vam’. The divine body of Devī is born out of
these ashes. This divine body is your body of Lalita.

The three celestial lights of Fire, Sun and the Moon represent the three channels of
nervous currents called susumna, pingala and ida. Among them, they exhaust all the
letters of the Samskrit alphabet, except the letter ‘ma’. The letter ‘ma’ means contact.
Since every act of worship involves contact, it is implied in every kala whether it be of
fire, sun or moon. Lalita Devī is fond of the letter ‘ma’ because ‘ma’ also means mother.
26. Hamsa, Amga Devata Puja of Sri Sudha Devi
In the Visesarghyam, draw a triangle consisting of three groups of 16 letters of the
Samskrit alphabet. The first 16 form the line slanting towards your right. The second 16
form the top horizontal line. The third 16 form the line slanting to your left. At the three
corners write the seed letters ham {am and ksam.

Kama Kala
In the center of this triangle of letters, write the kama kala, consisting of a circle for the
face, two circles for the breasts and a small triangle for the yoni of Devi. This is called
kama kala because it symbolizes the word ‘ahamsah’ meaning ‘I am that.’ The letter ‘a’
stands for lack of any description, sunya, or circle. The letter ‘ha’ stands for visarga, two
circles. The letter ‘m’ respresents contact, the sound of source, the womb of Devi. So
this picture is a description of Devi Herself. Worship the parts of kama kala as follows:

Aim hrim Srim ka e i la hrim namah (face)


Aim hrim Srim ha sa ka ha la hrim namah (breasts)
Aim hrim Srim sa ka la hrim namah (yoni)

Aim hrim Srim sa ka la hrim namah (outside of left corner of triangle)

going clockwise with the anga devata mantras given below:

The right foot of Ardhanarisvara is siva’s and the left foot is sakti’s. If the Guru is male
Her right foot belongs to him and if the Guru is female Her left foot belongs to her. Time
is the linga of siva flowing into space, which is Devi’s yoni. This eternal union creates the
flow of amrta that is Jnana. The flow of the siva ganga between their feet becomes the
flow of past and future through present. These form amrta kalas. The jnana, the
knowledge of the world, comes to us through the pancha amrtas – sabda, sparsa, rupa,
rasa and gandha.

ahamevaham mam juhomi svaha
So saying, the drop of visesarghyam bindu is taken on the tongue. The drop referred
above is the smallest of the quantity to be taken.

31. End of Sri Kramam


Thus ends the purification of the body and of the Śrī Chakram and of the suvasini. All
those present will partake of the visesarghyam without letting drops of it fall on the
ground. Neither the visesarghyam nor the samanyarghya are to be moved until after the
subsequent stages to follow are complete, namely Lalita Kramam, Navavarana Puja and
Śakti Puja.

ka e i la hrim ha sa ka ha la hrim sa ka la hrim ityadaya
Kumbhaka – hold breath in
Aim hrim Srim hrim Srim sauh

the flowers by breathing her life, the mantra.

Rechaka – exhale into the flowers held in trikhanda mudra saying:

action. The world is the mahapadma in which She resides as the blissful cause of this
entire world. The Compassionate Mother of this entire world, Please come, do come, Oh

that you see is yourself. Abiding in this state, loving and opening up to everyone is kama
kala dhyanam. Especially important is the one-ness with Deva.
