Hymns in praise of the Divine Mother, the technicalities of Sri Chakra and its worship according to the Samkhya tradition.

Saundaryalahari is one of the most popular Sanskrit poems in India and deals with Sakti worship. The first 41 verses are the source of various mantras and deal chiefly with Sri Chakra. The mantra of Tripurasundary is also dealt with. The 59 verses that follow give a description of the form of the Devi utilizing most of the forms of speech known to Sanskrit poetics. The subject matter of this book is highly technical and deal with matters that get little publicity. The mantras and ways of worship need to be learned by a competent student from a competent teacher who is a Sampradayavit.

Sanskrit text with transliteration. The translation and notes are based on Lakshmidara's commentary.
