Soundarya Lahari Slokas/Yantras No.100

SLOKA NO.100:-
Svakeeyairambhobhihi Salilanidhisouhithyakaranam
Thvadeeyaabhirvaagbhisthava Janani Vaachaam Sthuthiriyam!"
Literal Meaning:" Just as doing 'niraanjana'( the flame waving ritual)to the sun is only the offering of his own light to him; just as making an offering of arghya to the moon with water that oozes out of the moon-stone is only to give back what belongs to the moon, and just making 'tharpana' (water-offering) to the ocean is to return what belongs to it, -so is, O source of all Learning, this hymn is addressed to Thee composed of words that are already Thine."
Mode of worship:Yantra to be made on gold plate. Sit facing East. Chant this sloka 1000 times daily for 16 (45) days.
Archana:Chant Lalitha Sahasranamam offering different kinds of flowers.
Offerings:Cooked rice, sweet gruel, fruits, betels and nut slices.
BENEFICIAL RESULTS:All round success, freedom from diseases and accomplishment of all desires.
Literal Results:Retrieving lost property, gaining control of belongings and contentment.



Excellent...keep up your great work....

The Great Saint Kanchi Paramacharya has commented that the 100th sloka,if recited gives the benefits of chanting all the 100 slokas...

Thank you very much for your kind appreciation,you have posted about Kanchi Paramacharya and His instructions about the 100th sloka on a day of His star, "Anusham". I take this as a message from Him, thank you for letting me know this.

Dear Mrs. Gayathri,
Great service by posting all these slokhas and meeanings. Is there any book that I could buy with slokhas/yantras?

how do u knw abt s/l yantras?u preapre it......
who is ur guru?

Veenaagayathri said...

I am posting yantras and mantras of Soundarya Lahari based on authentic text. I neither have personal knowledge nor do I have a Guru.

Unknown said...

Dear Gayatri,
you have listed archana as a separate item,
do you mean it to be a supplementary to the sadhana?

Veenaagayathri said...

Dear Pakwan,
Archana is meant for ritualistic practice. Sloka recitation and chanting is most effective even without ritualistic worship.

request for sri kamakshi stothram lyrics by sivananda vijayalakshmi. I like this stothram very much, but am not able to find the lyrics. It is in sanskrit.

Best Regards

dear gayatri,
it is a great work. i love Adi shankaracharya's works. I don't have any knowlege f music but iam learning Soundarya Lahari in raga. hope i learn all slokas.

I have a doubt how one can perform this yantra puja and recite 1000 times? is it really possible.


Veenaagayathri said...

Dear Jyothir,
All the best in your musical recitation of Soundarya Lahari. Yantra pooja and recitation of sloka 1000 times is possible/allowed only after receiving 'upadesam' or initiation by Guru or Srividya Upasaka.

Dear Gayathri aunty,

I consider myself blessed to having come across your blog. Your work is highly commendable.I feel short of words to appreciate your work.

Could you please enlighten me on the following:

1)Can't an ardent Devi devotee chant Soundarya Lahari slokas without receiving upadesham?
(Please note, I have been chanting Lalitha Sahasranama since many years without receiving upadesham and I have been chanting the same on the premise that, without Devi's intention, I would have never been able to embark on such venture.)

2) Does chanting slokas within oneself requires sanctity of the surroundings viz. can a devotee chant the slokas within onself carrying out other mundane tasks?

Thanks again for enlightening us on various aspects of 'shaastras'.Keep up your work. I wish you all the best!

Veenaagayathri said...

Dear Ms. Bhavana,
Thank you for your kind appreciation.
1)Yes, any devotee can chant all the slokas.Only for the yantra pooja ritual a devotee needs 'Upadesham", otherwise to chant slokas any devotee can do it. To be able to sustain Lalitha Sahasranamam for years together is a great achievement and one needs no greater qualification than that to advance in spirituality.
2)One can chant mentally anywhere, anytime regardless of surroundings/situation except for women's menstruation or opposed to sanctity. I do the same. Through indefatigable mental chanting one can attain the fruits of sloka/mantra.
All the best!

Bhavana said...

Thank you very much! You are indeed one of my inspirations. I am too young to appreciate your humble, selfless approach towards life.Best regards!

Dear Gayathri Mam,

Recently I was looking for more information on SL and thats when I chanced upon your blog.
There are no words to appreciate your work. I am very much thankful for such a nice enlightening blog.

I have a 4 year old daughter, a very smart kid. My problem is she eats very little.
I am getting very much worried because of this.I want her to eat better and grow stronger.
Whenever I had any issues in my life, I would look for solutions in SL. I always got best results.
I am not able to find a suitable sloga for my problem.
Please suggest me a sloga that I can recite for my baby.

Thanks a lot.

Thanks alot gayatri amma.
I had couple of doubts for which I was awaiting answers regarding the initiation but got them clarified. I think you are the goddess's messenger who, with her writings helps the mother goddess devotees to attain the four karmas of this life.
Thank you so much for clarifying many doubts of people, actually those were my doubts also,today I read all of the 100 slokas meanings and doubts n responses by others. Thank you all the others who raised their doubts and thank you to you madam, now that i have a clarity of how to proceed.

Unable to download as it is.
