THIRU VILAKKU POOJA LALITHA SAHASRANAMA ARCHANA Sunday, the 12th February 2023
śrīmātā śrīmahārājñī śrīmatsiṃhāsaneśvarī ।
cidagnikuṇḍasambhūtā devakāryasamudyatā ॥
Lalitha Sahasranamam is the recitation of thousand names of the Mother Goddess Lalithamnbigai. It is a sacred text for the worshippers of the Goddess Lalitha Devi, who is considered to be a manifestation of the Divine Mother "Shakthii", and the text is therefore used in the worship of Durga, Parvati, Kali, Lakshmi, Saraswati, Bhagavati,, as well.
The Lalitha Saharanamam is organized in such a way that Devi is described from "Head to Toe" (Kesadi Padam). The names then go on to extoll Devi in all her achievements, powers, and forms.
She is the Great Empress of the whole Universe, enthroned on the lion’s back. Devi came out of the fire of Pure knowledge and consciousness to promote the cause of divine forces (devas).
