Sri Sankara Vijayam - 97
« on: September 30, 2009, 01:37:49 PM »
Let us see the Verse 100 of Sri Soundarya Lahari and then move
on to the remaining biography of Sri Sankara.  The 100th verse
in conclusion says about the grand idea of the all-inclusiveness
of the Divine, Sri Lalita Tripura Sundari.

Pradipa jvaalabhir divasa kara niraajana vidhih
Sudhaa-sutes chandro pala jala lavair arghya rachanaa;
Svakiyair ambhobhih salila nidhi suhitya karanam
Tvadiyabhir vagbhis tava janani vaachaam stutir iyam.

Just as doing Nirajana, the light waving ceremony or Arti to the
Sun is only the offering of his own light to him.  Just as making
an offering of Arghya, water abuiations to the moon from out of the moon-stone that emits water in contact with the moonlight, and
just as making water offering, Tarpana, to the ocean is to return
what belongs to it -- so is, O Source of all learning, this hymn
addressed to You composed of words that are already Yours.

Mother is called in various names from 366 to 373 of Sri Lalita

366:  Om Paraayai Namah:
