Introduction

Bhaskara-raya-makhin (between 1690 and 1785), who is the well known commentator on the celebrated text of the worship of the mother-goddess, Lalitasahasra-nama (Saubhagya-bhaskara by name), has also written a gloss on Tantrik Upanishad called Bhavanopanishad. This Upanishad is an important manual for the upasakas of Srividya. It explains the esoteric significance of well-known Sri-Chakra, and also the spiritual mode of worship of Samaya (Kadi) school. Bhaskara-raaya mankhin has also written a prayogavidhi to accompany his gloss on Bhavanopanishad. The Introduction provides details of what is known as “inner sacrifice” (antaryaga), which is the characteristic approach of the Samaya school.

This important but little known gloss (prayoga-vidhi along with the Bhavanopanishad) has been brought out here with elaborate introduction, comments and notes in English. Because this widom in hailed as chandra-jnana (knowledge of the luner phases and full moon, represented by the Panchadasi and Shodasi mantras), this research work dealing with it is called chandrika (moonlight). The deity adored by the Sri-vidya upasakas in Lalita (otherwise called Raja-rajesvari). Hence the book is described as Lalitarchana Chandrika.
