Publisher’s Note

 

All the great Aacharyas who have nourished the Indian soil with their religious outpourings deeply embeded in philosophy, were of a strong opinion that principle and personality should go hand - in - hand. Even the greatest Advaitic notion of the unity of Atman and Brahman must be clothed in personal worship of a deity for an ordinary man to understand.

 

Aachaarya Shankara was the foremost luminary in the Indian religio-philosophical screen, who was not just a brilliant philosopher - commentator (Bhaashyakaara) but also a devotee par-excellence, who established the six-fold path of worship (Shanmata-Sthaapanacharya)

 

Shankaracharya bequethed to mankind innumerable stotras, which were religious yet soaked in philosophical nectar. Saundaryalahari has earned a very high place amongst his works,not only for its lyrical beauty, but also for the details it gives regarding Mantra- Shaastra, especially Shaakta.

 

There is a legend regarding the origin of the Saundaryalahari. When Shankara visited Kailaasa, he was gifted with the manuscript of Saundaryalahari and five sphatika lingas. Lord Nandi, unwilling to part with the esoteric verses took back 3 part of it. Shri Sankara completed the remaining part upon coming back to bhuloka(earth), hence the distinction between the first 41 verses called Aanandalahari which is a treasure-house of information on Srividya and Saundaryalahari starting from verse 42 which is lyrical and extols the beauty and greatness of Mother Tripurasundari.

 

This text has several commentaries by stalwarts of Srividya such as Bhaskaraaya, Lakshmidhara, Kaivalyaashrama etc.

 

Giving the text both in Devanagari and Roman script and a lucid translation in English along with the Prayoga for each mantra is an attempt from the giri house, who have always strived to bring the tradition closer to the modern generation.

 

We thank Shri. A. R. Parthasarathy for giving a beautiful running translation of the text.

 

We also express our indebtness to Dr. P. Ramachandrasekhar, for his editorial work and for providing additional brief notes to certain verses of Aanandalahari, along with the prayoga for each Shloka.

 

We request the readers to kindly get initiated from a guru before indulging in Japa, because only with a proper Upadesha the mantras gain potency. We also caution the readers from indulging in any prayoga other than common welfare of ones family and society at large.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
