Notes

[1] In Her deep penance and meditation to please Shiva, she refused all food, even the fallen leaf (“parna”), and hence she is called “A-parna”.

[2] The Prana is envisioned as a wild goose.

[3] This represents the grossest manifestation of Shakti belonging to the manifest worlds.

 

Notes from Sri Dikshita Kirtana Mala by Sri. A. Sundaram Iyer:

4th Avarana Keertanam:

This 4th avarana is called Sarva Saubhagyadayaka chakra (given of all auspicious sweetness).

He who recites the mantram of this 4th avaranam 15 lakh times is sure to achieve all auspicious sweetness by the grace of Sri Lalitambika.
