As you all know Vasantha Navarathiri starts today. Although sharada navarathri is well-known and celebrated, for shakthas all 4 navarathris are equally important. Shankaracharyas are Devi upasakas of the highest order. Sri Matam celebrates all navarathri in a most detailed way.
Since this Navarathiri is for Lalitha, let us chant slokas/stotras that are for Kamakshi – like Mooka Pancha Shathi, Soundarya Lahari, Kamakshi Ashtotrams, Abirami Andadhi etc. Lalitha sahasranamam can be chanted by those who are initiated.
I am also enclosing a fantastic 13-minute video of a Swamigal (I think He used to be called as “Kutti Swamigal” in the 90s) who talks about the Saktha-mahatmiyam and explains so beautifully how the glory of the path and talks about 3 Subramanians in Tamilnadu who have been great shaktha upasakars – one of them is Sri Chidanandhar, who started guhananda mandala. Please listen to this video and take the key message from this. I find this video very appropriate on this auspicious day! I need to preserve this video for a long time…
Let us all seek the blessings of our acharyas, Lalitha Devi to bless us with health, wealth and gnanam!
Wish you all a very happy vasantha navarathiri!
