Soundarya Lahari Slokas/Yantras No.62


"Prakruthyaa Rakthaayaasthava Sudathi Danthachchadaruchey
Pravakshye Saadrushyam Janayathu Phalam Vidrumalathaa!
Na Bimbam Thathbimbaprathiphalanaraagaadarunitham
Thulaamadhyaarodhum Kathamiva Vilajjetha Kalayaa!"

Literal Meaning:"O, Goddess with beautiful teeth! I shall mention a likeness to the splendour of Thy naturally red lips. But I am afraid I shall have to wait for this until the coral creeper (red all over) produces a fruit (which is certain to be redder than the creeper itself). But is there not the 'bimba' fruit as a fitting object for comparison? No, because how will bimba fruit not feel ashamed to stand before those lips, a mere reflection of which has made that fruit so red!"
Mode of worship:Yantra to be made on a gold plate. Sit facing North-East. Chant this sloka 1000 times daily for 8 days.
Archana:Chant Lalitha Thrishathi offering jasmine flowers.
Offerings:Cooked rice mixed with black-gram powder, honey and pure water.
BENEFICIAL RESULTS:Sound sleep for the sleepless, robust constitution and power of enticing people.
Literal Results:Healthy constitution, contentment and tranquility.

while praising women one has to start from feet...Swamy sankaracharya started from describing Mother's feet in his Soundarya lahari.. by noe that is the 62nd stanza speaks of similies to her lips... the coral fruit and bimba phalam are apt and the slokam again and you will visualise Her face in your mind.
