About the Book
How is Para Sakti related to the phenomenal world and especially to the man with Sankoca-limitation ? The Lalitasahsranamastotram has been able to solve this philosophic problem on the empirical and transcendental side on the basis of Cit-Sakti-consciousness and Bhavana-meditative aspect on 'mantra-yantra-tantra'.
The experience of man speaks that the origination is possible with the union of male and female principle. The idea of the unity of Siva and Sakti are always equal and identical, but may be viewed differently to suit the psychee of devotees. Benign mother Lalita is 'Sivasakyaikarupini'.
Lalita is Samarasya-parayana- the principle of unchanging unity and harmony. Kashmiri Saktas are traditionally the worshippers of Sri Yantra and the experiencers of Matrkapujanam. The immutable phonomes begin with 'a' and end with 'ha', thus evolving into 'aah' - the higher consciousness.
Mother Lalita is immutable in the form of Varnamala - the eternal garland of phonomes. In the world of name and form Lalita in her emotional aspect continues the process of creation through Matrka - or the Supernal 'Sabda brahman'. The emotional of Lalita is impregnated with the three hrms of Lajjabija. Hrm is the evolutionary aspect of the Divine Lalita.
