Soundarya Lahari Chanting Bestows Blessings and Boons to Achieve All Desires

Soundarya Lahari is a set of powerful divine verses composed by Sri Adi Shankara to express the saint’s devotion and admiration of the beauty of Goddess Tripura Sundari – the one that dwells in the three worlds (Tripura). According to Swami Satyasangananda Saraswati, a disciple of Swami Satyananda Saraswati, Saundarya Lahari is an enthralling composition of 103 mantras. The first 41 mantras that are part of the first section are called Ananda Lahari and the rest of 62 mantras that form the second section are called Soundarya Lahiri. When a deadly disease threatened Adi Shankara’s life, he sought refuge in Devi for love, care, kindness, and power. The mantras of Soundarya Lahari create a magnetic field that bestow blessings and boons to the sadhakas. With the help of powerful mantras and yantras the cosmic forces are awakened and made to reside in the mandala or yantra known as pranaprathishta, which is the most significant aspect of Soundarya Lahari Homam. It is also believed that by creating suitable yantras and reciting particular stanzas and invoking them, anything can be achieved in the world. Swami Satyasangananda Saraswati explains that Soundarya Lahari assigns specific mantras, yantras and mandalas for healing three different types of diseases of the body. They are adhibhautika which means physical ailments, adhidaivika, afflictions caused by natural calamities and adhyatmika, diseases whose causes are unknown.

Soundarya Lahari reveals how mantras and yantras are used to arouse the Moola Prakriti or primal force that exists in our body as Kundalini Shakti. The sadhana generates a higher stratum of energy and consciousness that impacts the body or any form of matter which aids in achieving the aims of life. Ananda Lahari mantras sing the goddess praises, with reverence, devotion and surrender. It exalts her awakening in the body which is compared to a temple, where she resides as Kulakundalini, the female vital energy that’s dormant in every human being. Once awakened, she makes her ascent through the chakras up to the Sahasrara chakra. There she unites with Akula(non-manifest form of Lord Shiva) to experience ecstasy. After the Devi gets soaked in amrita or nectar, her downward descent begins with her consort Lord Shiva, through the Sushumna nadi, and she is still in a state of great Ananda which is the state of highest pleasure.

While Ananda Lahari speaks of the Devi’s union with the lord to attain endless bliss and also provides methods through which one can attempt to realize the Shakti or the energy innately present in the body, Soundarya Lahari describes her physical beauty from head to toe in the most descriptive manner which exhausts almost all Sanskrit embellishment or alankaras. It shows the portrayal of affection towards the Mother who gives anything you want. She ensures her devotee gets a wide range of chance to be effective and successful in life.

A variety of tantra, mantra and general Vedic information is mounted like petals of a flower in the hymns of Soundarya Lahari. The method of worship involves the Sri Vidya tradition that includes construction of Sri Chakra diagram for each of the 103 mantras, recitation of the mantras that include a powerful syllable mantra of Devi Lalitha Maha Tripura Sundari called panchadshakshari mantra and Kundalini Yoga.
