    Re: Check here - the Shlokas Index

    I would like to read Lalitha Sahastranamam. Can you tell me how do I go about it. I have a book which consists of 92 pages with each chapter consisting shlokas followed by sankalpa, karnyasa etc.. and ends with Lamityadipanchapuja. Every chapter has got the same title Lalitha Shastranamam Stotram. Can you guide me which are the shlokas which is to be recited. Do I need to recite all the chapters.

    Dear Mals,
    Unless you take upadesha, you need not do
    sankalpa, karnyasa, Lamityadipanchapuja.
    Just chant the dyana shlokas and sahasranamam. Nothing more.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Re: Check here - the Shlokas Index

    Dear Chits,

    Re: Lalitha Sahastranamam
    There are shlokas in each chapter. Which is the one which we can recite in? One of the tamil aunty asked me recite chapter two having 183 shlokas. This chapter is titled as Sri Maturavatar.
    Sree mata ... Devakarya samudhyata (Shloka 1) to

    Shri Shiva .. jaguu (Shloka 183).

    Please do not get confused with my queries. I want to recite the correct shlokas.

    RE: Durga Sapashatee

    Thanks a ton for the information. I will hunt for the book in Giri stores.

    Re: Check here - the Shlokas Index

    Dear Chits,

    Last Night I logged in to the website of Gita Press and downloaded the hindi version. At the end of all the 13 chapters I did not find the required mantra: uvacha mantra, shloka mantra, Ardha mantra, avam and avamaditya. I read all the verses. I did find the mool mantra. Can you help me here? Secondly, I have book on Satpashatee published from Pune and many of us follow this book. Just for my satisfaction I want to mention the chapter wise details to you and it is in the same order we read the verses:

    1. Saptashathi pat vidhi
    2. Nitya Pat Sankalpa
    3. Vishesh Sankalpaha
    4. Aasan Vidhihi
    5. Bahbutha Shudihi
    6. Stala Shudihi
    7. Vignothasaranam Aatmarakshanam cha
    8. Bhu Shudihi
    9. Bhuta Shudihi
    10. Prana Pratishtaha
    11. Matrukanyasaha
    12. Deepastapanam
    13. Yantre Devata Sthapanam
    14. Yantram Vikruthi Kara Hasyoktham
    15. Navarna Yantram Ashtadhalam
    16. Satpashathi Mahayantram
    17. Sankshepathaha : Pujavidhihi
    18. Aavarana Devataha
    19. Kumaripuja
    20. Bhalidhanam
    21. Krushmanda balihi
    22. Saraswathi Pujanam
    23. Shapodwara Mantraha: Uthkilana Mantrashcha
    24. Chandi Kavacham
    25. Argala Stotram
    26. Kilaka Stotram
    27. Navarna Mantravidhi
    28. Ekadashanyasaha
    29. Mool Panga Nyasaha
    30. Dhyanadhi
    31. Mala Prarthana
    32. Vaideekam Ratri Sukhtham
    33. Pouranam Ratri Sukhtham
    34. Samputikaranam Prakaraha
    35. Pallavayojoana Prakaraha
    36. Sapashathi Nyasaha
    37. Chandi Panchakshara Nyasaha
    38. Chakra Nyasaha : Dhyanam Cha
    39. Saptashathi Prathama Chartitham
    40. Saptashathi Madhyama Charitham
    41. Saptashathi Uthama Charitham
    42. Uthara Nyasaha
    43. Vaidika Devi Sukhtam
    44. Tantrikam Devi Sukhtam
    45. Pradhanika Rahasyam
    46. Vaikrutika Rahasyam
    47. Moorti Rayasyam
    48. Uthara Vidhihi: Punruthkilana mantraksha
    49. Navachandi - Shatachandi - Sahastrachandi - Homaprayoga Vidhi
    50. Pallavayojana Vidhihi
    51. Kunjaka Stotram
    52. Devi Kshamapana Stotram
    53. Durga padhudhar Stotram

    We have been reciting the verses in this order. While I was going through the "Saptashati" download version from Gita Press, it had mentioned that we have to read Madhyama Charitam first, then prathama Charitham and then Uthama Charitham.

    Chits, myself and all the elderly aunts here (with I have been racking my brain) are reading in the given order above. I have been doing if for more than 3 years now. I have asked so many of them to tell me about the Uvacha Mantra, etc.. They just shooed me away saying, "we are not performing any homa .. so forget it. End of the prayers we should say the 'prayer for forgiveness' and close the chapter". I like to do it correctly or stop it. In case I am doing something wrong, i would like to stop reading these holy verses.

    Also in the net it had mentioned that we need to follow certain pattern if we cannot finish the book in a day. The book should be finished in 7 days and there are certain patterns to be followed.

    Sorry for this long post, but I need to clarify all my doubts before I start reading this book again. Can you please help.

    I am so happy to get my doubts on Lalitha Sahastranama clarified. Tomorrow is Firday and I can read the verses marked by you. May God be with you always.

    Bye!!

    Thrayodasodhyaaya:
    followed by
    kshamaa prarthana
    You are done.
    You can read one chapter (adhyaya)) per day. But read
    Atha sapthashloki durga
    And
    kshamaa prarthana
    everyday before & after.
    Love,
    Chits.
