Original: TK Govinda Rao’s book):

Shri Kamalambika has cast Her gracious glance (“kata-akshi”) on me (“to-aham”), and now I am identified (“asmi”) with the nature of Absolute (“paripurna”) Brahman (“brahma”), the fullness of existence (“sat”), consciousness (“chit”) and bliss (“ananda”).

Indra (“paaka-shaasana”) and other (“aadi”) celestials (“sakala devataa”) attend (“sevitayaa”) on Her.

She is adored (“bhaavitayaa”) by Brahma  (“pankaja-asana”) and others (“aadi”) who perform the Pancakritya, the five (“pancha”) cosmic acts (“krut”).

Her feet are adroit (“chatura”) at removing (“hara”) grief (“shoka”).

She endowed  (“pradayaa”) the gift of speech (“vaak”)  in Mooka and made him a Kavi.

Her victorious (“vijaya”)  feet (“padayaa”) are like red lotus (“kokanada”).

She is the embodiment of the three-word (“trai-padayaa”) mantra Tat-Tvam-Asi imparted by Guruguha.

Her form (“aakaaryaa”) is of eight (“ashta”) Shaktis (“shktyaa”), Anangakusuma and the rest.

She is the color (“varna”) of dawn, Aruna (i.e. red color).

She is enshrined (“arayaa”) in the Samkshobhana Chakra.

She is the consort (“nayikayaa”) of Shankara, who is the Lord (“naayaka”) of innumerable universes (“ananta-kotyananda”).

She is of the nature (“aatmaka”) of eternal and hidden (“gupta”) Ashtavarga, the eight (“ashta”) groups (“varga”) of alphabets.

She is worshipful (“tarayaa varayaa”), seated (“sthitayaa”) on an eight-petalled (“ashta-dala”) lotus (“abja”).

She is worshiped (“dyupaasitayaa”) by Ananga the Cupid.

She holds (“dhara”) in her hand (“karayaa”) a bow (“dhanur”) and arrows (“baana”).

She is an embodiment (“saagarayaa”) of the nectar (“sudha”) of compassion (“dayaa”).

 

 

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

3rd Avarana Keertanam:

1)     The following are the essence of the “Brahman”:

a.      “Sath” is the everlasting imperishable quality

b.      “Chith” is the revealer

c.      “Anandam” manifests the enjoyment.

2)     All things in the universe manifest the above essential qualities.

3)     Immovable things reveal the subsistence (“sath”) quality in greater measure than other qualities. Movable things reveal the knowledge (“chith”) quality in greater measure than other qualities. The Gods reveal the bliss (“anandam”) quality in greater measure than other qualities.

4)     This 3rd avarana is called Sarva Samkshobana chakra (the agitator of everything).

5)     By reciting this mantra 15 lakh times, one shall achieve

a.      True wisdom

b.      All auspicious things with the aid of Sri Lalita Mahatripurasundari
