Dear Sir/Madam,
Thank you for your kind appreciation. The yantra pooja has been described in every posting. The direction to face, the offerings and number of recitations have all been mentioned. For further development, kindly consult a qualified Srividya Upasaka, I am not qualified to prescribe or advise anything in regard to this. I only shared the method in my blog.

Dear Madam,
I sincerely appreciate your efforts in posting the information on Soundrya Lahari Upasana.
According to Lolla Laxmidhara - whose commentary is regarded as one of the authorities on these verses, clearly mentions in verse 32 that any one who is interested in chanting these devotional verses could do so considering him (Laxmidhara) as their Guru (preceptor). Even if one chants any verse for the worldly benefits, with out performing the Yantra Pooja, he will derive that. Yantra Pooja will expedite the result. But, for Pooja, one has to maintain celibacy - abstention from meat, onion, garlic, hotel food, etc., observe strict brahmacharya, maintain the proper timings, etc.
It is better to chant verse 48 first to get rid of all the ill effects of our planets.
It is my sencere feeling that we should chant this verse with out any ambition. If we sincerely believe that Mother Godess is omnipotent, omnipresent and ubiquitious, then she will certainly be aware of our problems and remedies. As the Phalashruti to Lalita Trishati says though Trishati chanting brings benefits 1000 times more than those of Sahasranama, it is better not to aspire anything while chanting.
May the Divine Mother guide us in the spiritual path and open our inner eye to perceive Her presence everywhere and in everything.

Dear Sri.Narayana Hegde,
I absolutely agree with you that we should pray for the devotion of the Goddess and not for material wants. The reason why I had posted the benefits is only for the sake of information.
Thank you for sharing valuable details regarding verses 32 and 48 and the procedures.I have also heard about the power of Lalitha Trishathi.
Best Regards,
