Lalitamba Siddhi Diwas
10 February 2017
Gentle Raseshwari Goddess
The Diety of Art, Beauty and Personality
Lalitamba means Lalit (Arts) + Amba (Mother), which combines the arts and intensity.
The eight powers of Mother Lalitamba – Prabha, Maya, Jaya, Sukshma, Visuddha, Nandini, Suprabha and Vijaya bestow glory, honour and beauty to the Sadhak.
There are multiple forms of Goddess – Jagdamba, Durga, Tara, Kali, etc., but there is one more discrete form “Lalitamba” who owns all Siddhis of the universe. She nurtures-blesses the Sadhak through Her love, affection and compassion, apart from bestowing him a worry-free life by annihilating the sins of his past lives and destroying all his enemies… And these enemies are – all the inadequacies of his material and spiritual life.
Every person is this age wishes to lead a life full of beauty, impact, power and unique; and tries many endeavours to attain it. However, he encounters failure at each step, and he is ever-ready to follow any path, to do anything, to remove this failure. If he obtains proper guidance during such moments, then he is able to lead a complete life by eliminating those inadequacies. He can create such a complete life only through Lalitamba Sadhana.
Goddess Aadya Shakti in Her benign form nurtures the love feelings in the Sadhak. The literal meaning of word Lalit in Sanskrit means – the fine art related to dance, music, beauty, painting, etc. If the aesthetic sense dies in a person, then that person does not perish, however his life becomes dry and dreadful. The Lalitamba Shakti Sadhana is the process to awaken such a divine juice within the Sadhak, to infuse him to love every beautiful object in the nature, and give them a place in his life. Generally the man has been considered dry and woman has been considered as full of sweet juices. The mightiest, soundest form of Lord Shiva is the Ardhanareeswara form, in which his half-body is male and another half is female. Similarly the Shivling is also a combination of both male and female forms, in which both elements are in complete harmony. The Lalitamba Sadhana is a combination of both beauty and intensity elements. The word Lalitamba is made of Lalit + Amba, whose stotra was composed by Shankaracharya himself. The eight powers of Lalitamba – Prabha, Maya, Jaya, Sukshma, Visuddha, Nandini, Suprabha and Vijaya bestow glory, honour and beauty-personality to the Sadhak. The Lalitamba Kavach and Stotra has been prominently displayed at many ancient temples of India. The basic foundation of all Sadhanas is beauty and love.
Matraswaroopa (Maternal Form) – Lalitamba
A mother might be doing any work, she might be busy in performing any task, but her full focus is always concentrated on her child. The hands are engaged in performing the tasks, and the eyes are busy in monitoring her child at every moment. A baby does not have any language, however, the mother manages to communicate with her. A baby learns the language also from her mother’s mouth. Hence the term “Matrabhasha” (Mother-tongue) originated. Not only does she nurture the baby through her milk from the blood of her heart, rather she pours her entire strength, vitality and consciousness into her baby. Therefore every person maintains a special feeling, love, deference and respect towards his mother.
A Sadhak is also similar to a child. Some automatically accept this childhood, while others accept it later on. What we term as spiritual Sadhana energy, isn’t is similar to the linguistic knowledge imparted by maternal Bhagwati Jagdamba? The entire knowledge-wisdom, sciences, Sadhana and penances emanate from that Divine source to each person, in a similar fashion as rays emanating from the Sun. The quicker we accept this fact in the rat-race of our life, the better it will be; both from the material and spiritual perspective.
One always obtains success in any Sadhana or worship of mother Goddess, because the heart of mother is always full of compassion and maternal love. She is called “Devi Swaroopa” due to this compassionate nature, and she bestows whatever she has, to her child; to prevent any harm or suffering to her child. Then the Sadhak does not face any problem or trouble in his life, the mother Goddess eradicates all obstacles and hurdles in his life, and paves a smooth and pure path for his life. This enriches his life, and mother Goddess provides all kinds of prosperities to him ignoring all his faults and omissions.
Generally a person can successfully remove troubles and obstacles in his life by performing Sadhana of any deity. However if he wishes to obtain this compassion and love quickly; then Lalitamba Sadhana is the only way to analyse the sins of current and past lives, and lead a fulfilling flawless life. Goddess Lalitamba is the owner of the universe, and can bestow everything to the Sadhak, even beyond his imagination and thinking.
Bhagwati Mahakali – Lalitamba
The secret to gain control over Kaliyuga or rather “Kali” is not within the devotion, worship or religious discourses being repeated in parrot-like fashion. This mystery is hidden within the Tantrik Sadhana practices, and that too, within the truth of the knowledge bestowed by Mother Bhagwati Jagdamba. Only “Kaali” is capable to vanquish “Kali”, and Kaali implies Tantrokt Sadhanas. The complete Sadhana process of Mahakaali Sadhana (the basic form of Mother Bhagwati Jagdamba) is just Tantrik, this fact can be verified by studying any Sadhana scripture. The ever-fortune-bestowing Sadhana of Mother Mahakaali, has always been known as Lalitamba Sadhana from times immemorial. Lalitamba is not a separate Mahadevi Goddess, rather, She is a form of Mahakali. In reality, the intense beautiful form of Mahakaali is called Lalita –
Lalitam Shringaar Bhaavajanyaa Kriyaa
VisheshaH Tadvatee Lalitaa
Lalita is the basic foundation Goddess of entire Tantra-science. This practice has been considered so intense, secret and rare, that even the children of Guru were not taught this Sadhana unless they attained capability and proved their worth. Gradually this knowledge became lost and unknown. A Shaktipeeth exists in Lalita Goddess name, however the Lalita Sadhana has been generally considered mysterious within the society. The only reason for this confidentiality was that a normal Sadhak could not withstand the intensity of the Sadhana performed according to the available scriptures. The disciples used to stay with Guru in the ancient times, and the Guru used to make the disciple worthy and capable by gradually imparting Shaktipaat over a long period. This enabled the disciples to attain and assimilate the intense power of Lalita Sadhana.
Viraata form of Jagdamba – Lalitamba
Lalitamba is the gigantic form of Jagdamba. She cares and nurtures us at each moment through different medium in multiple forms. She is always concerned about our joys and sorrows.
It is a person’s good fortune to be inclined towards accomplishment of Bhagwati Lalitamba Sadhana, because this Sadhana is the most excellent and extremely beneficial Sadhana. Multiple scriptures like Shankar Bhaashya, Tantrasaar, Rasa Tantra, Vishwamitra Sanhita etc. comment on the benefits after accomplishment of this Sadhana. This Sadhana is indeed confidential and divine. Goraksh Sanhita terms this Sadhana as ultra-confidential. A Sadhak obtain multiple benefits after accomplishing this Sadhana –
- “Shankar Bhashya” comments that the Sadhak becomes victorious throughout the world after accomplishing this Sadhana. He influences and wins over any person whom he meets after wearing “Lalitamba Yantra“.
- “Tantrasaar” states that only fortunate persons can obtain “Lalitamba Yantra“. This leads to complete annihilation of the enemies, and removes fear of any kind from the life.
- “Rasa Tantra” explains that Lalitamba Sadhana is also a kind of “Kayakalp Sadhana“. Even a eunuch can become fully potent and Kaamdev-like handsome through this Mantra chanting.This Sadhana has the capability to remove geriatric-effects and attain youthful rejuvenation.
- The “Mantra Vigyan” text clearly states the secret-confidential nature of Lalitamba Yantra and Mantra. An accomplished Sadhak easily attains “Sunya Siddhi” and he can easily fetch any substance from the air. Such a person is called Siddha-Yogi.
- “Vishwamitra Sanhita” while praising Lalitamba Sadhana tells the Guru to bestow a consecrated sanctified “Lalitamba Yantra” to the disciple. The third-eye of the Sadhak automatically awakens after performing Sadhana wearing such a Yantra.
6 “Vyaas Samuchchaya” scripture explains that the Sadhak should leave everything else to focus on this Sadhana. One can accomplish other Sadhanas at any other time, but accomplishment in this Sadhana can be obtained only through the virtues of many-many lives.
