It is Wonderful that You are Designing a 'yantra' Geometry for each Shloka of this Great Text.
Where are you getting such an Inspiration?
What method you are using to Design this perticular Geaometric Pattern for this Perticular Shloka ?

Thank you for your kind appreciation! It is not my own, I have photo-copied yantras from a very authentic text for the benefit of readers.
I am a devotee like everybody else.

With kind regards,
Gayathri

Dear madam, do we need to start chanting all the shlokas of soundarya lahari with "OM" ? If we are to recite a particular shloka 11 times, then do we need to start with "OM" everytime or just for the first time? What difference does it make if we chant without "OM"?
