Learn how and when to remove this template message Shiva is one of the three gods who together constitute the Trimurti , the Hindu trinity. Shiva married Sati , the daughter of Daksha.
Daksha and Shiva did not get along and consequently, Daksha did not invite Shiva for one of the great fire sacrifices that he conducted. This incident, i. Sati reincarnated as Parvati , the daughter of the mountain king Himavat and his wife the apsara Mena. The devas faced an enemy in Tarakasura , who had a boon that he could be killed only by a son of Shiva and Parvati.
So for the purpose of begetting a son from Shiva and Parvati , the devas deputed Manmatha , the god of love. Manmatha shot his flower arrows to Shiva and Parvati in order to induce love feelings in them. In anger for being tricked, Shiva opened his third eye which reduced the god of love to ashes. Heeding their request, Shiva stared at the ashes of Manmatha.
From the ashes came Bhandasura , who made all the world impotent and ruled from the city called Shonitha pura, after which he started troubling the devas. The devas then sought the advice of Sage Narada and the Trimurti , who advised them to seek the help of Nirguna Brahman, the ultimate god head which is unmanifested i. Nirguna Brahman Parashivalalita divided itself into the male, Maha Shambhu and the female, Adi Parashakti who were unmanifested and beyond the manifest and appeared before them.
Maha Shambhu and Adi Parashakti agreed to take the forms of Maha Kameshwara and Kameshwari Tripura Sundari respectively, for the benefit of the universe. For this, a maha yajna great sacrifice was made, where the entire creation, i.
Tripura Sundari and Kameswara re-created the entire universe as it was before. They re-created Brahma and Saraswati, Vishnu and Lakshmi, and all the other devas. In another story, Parvati , upon her love for and desire to charm Shiva , transforms herself into Lalita Tripura Sundari to showcase her beauty and omnipresence in the three worlds.

Center of city[ edit ] In the center of Nagara is the Maha Padma Vana the great lotus forest and within it, the Chintamani Griha The house of holy thought , in the northeast is the Chid agni kunda and on both sides of its eastern gate are the houses of Mantrini and Dandini. On its four gates stand the Chaturamnaya gods for watch and ward. Within it is the chakra. In the center of the Chakra on the throne of Pancha brahmas on the Bindu Pitha dot plank called sarvanandamaya universal happiness sits Maha Tripura Sundari.
In the chakra are the following decorations viz. Bhandasura[ edit ] The devas prayed to her to kill Bhandasura. While Sampatkari was the captain of the elephant regiment, Aswarooda was the captain of the cavalry. The army was commanded by Dhandini riding on the chariot called Giri Chakra assisted by Manthrini riding on the chariot called Geya Chakra. Jwala Malini protected the army by creating a fire ring around it.
Tripura Sundari rode in the center on the chariot of Chakra. When the asuras created a blockade for the marching army, Tripura sundari created Ganesha with the help of Kameshwara to remove the blockade. Then Bhandasura created the asuras called Hiranyaksha , Hiranyakashipu and Ravana. She killed all his army using Pasupathastra and killed him with Kameshwarasthra. The gods then praised her. She then recreated Manmathan for the good of the world.
This story is contained in the first 84 names of the first 34 slokas of Lalitha sahasranamam. All together it contains one thousand names. This is also called the Rahasya Nama Sahasra the thousand secret names.
Reading it, meditating on the meaning of the names would lead to the fulfillment of all the wishes of the devotees. Lalita Sahasranama[ edit ] Lalita Sahasranama contains a thousand names of the Hindu mother goddess Lalita. It is the only sahasranama that does not repeat a single name. Further, in order to maintain the meter, sahasranamass use the artifice of adding words like tu, api, ca, and hi, which are conjunctions that do not necessarily add to the meaning of the name except in cases of interpretation.
The Lalita sahasranama does not use any such auxiliary conjunctions and is unique in being an enumeration of holy names that meet the metrical, poetical and mystic requirements of a sahasranama by their order throughout the text. Lalita Sahasranama begins by calling the goddess Shri Mata the great mother , Shri Maharajni the great queen and Shrimat Simhasaneshwari the queen sitting on the lion-throne.
Composition[ edit ] Lalitha sahasranama is said to have been composed by eight vak devis vaag devathas upon the command of Lalitha. The sahasranama says that "One can worship Lalitha only if she wishes us to do so". The text is a dialogue between Hayagriva , an avatar of Mahavishnu and the sage Agastya. The temple at Thirumeyachur, near Kumbakonam is said to be where Agastya was initiated into this sahasranama. Another alternative version is the Upanishad Bramham Mutt at kanchipuram is where this initiation happened.
This sahasranama is held as a sacred text for the worship of the "Divine Mother", Lalita, and is used in the worship of Durga , Parvati , Kali , and other forms of Parvati. A principal text of Shakti worshipers , it names her various attributes, and these names are organized in the form of a hymn.
This sahasranama is used in various modes for the worship of the Divine Mother. Some of the modes of worship are parayana Recitations , archana , homa etc. This stotra hymn of praise occurs in the Brahmanda Purana history of the universe in the chapter on a discussion between Hayagreeva and Agasthya. Hayagreeva is an incarnation of Vishnu with the head of a horse who is held to be the storehouse of knowledge. Agasthya is one of the sages of yore and one of the stars of the constellation Saptarshi Ursa major.
At the request of Agasthya, Hayagreeva is said to have taught him the thousand holiest names of Lalita. This has been conveyed to us by the sage Maharishi Vyasa. All the other sahasranamas are said to have been composed by Maharishi Vyasa.
