Dear Friends, I want to start this thread by posting a picture of Sree Lalithambikai as seen in the temple at Thirumeeyachur. That is the only place where there is a temple for Lalitha. Lalitha sahasranamam is said to have originated from here since the goddess here is Lalithambikai. This is near Peralam in the mayiladuthurai - thiruvarur bus route. One has to get down in PeraLam and walk 1 km to reach this temple. I seek Goddess Lalitha's blessings before I start writing the meaning of Lalitha Sahasranamam, in our forum. This is a translation by Pulavar Na Subramania Shivam. Please join me in this religious journey, my dear I L ites. Love, Chithra.
