Vurn Hayagriva is the incarnation of ViShNu who assumed the form of a horse to kill a demon by the same name. He then gives him the following trishatI. The story of the meeting trishzti Agastya and Hayagriva is given in the lalitopAkhyAna and is quite interesting. The mantras in this text are first chanted in Sanskrit and then maliciously translated into English. Agastya was visiting several places of pilgrimage and was sad to see many people steeped in ignorance and involved in only sensual pleasures.

Parama shiva is one of the trinity of Hindu pantheons who is in charge of destruction. He married Sathi, the daughter of Daksha.

Sathi took birth as the daughter of the mountain Parvathy Himalayas and started doing penance on Shiva for getting him as her husband. The devas faced a very great enemy in Sura Padma who had a boon that he could be killed only by a son of Shiva and Parvathy.

Lalitha Sahasranama Koti Archana - Puja Vidhi with Namavali
Therefore the Sahasranama can be chanted in stotra form, or namavali form. The Lalitha Saharanama is one of the only sahasranamas that does not repeat a single name. Generally, sahasranamas 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 meets the metrical, poetical and mystic requirements of a sahasranama by their order throughout the text. Etymologically, "Lalita" means "She Who Plays. Composition[ edit ] The Lalita Sahasranama is said to have been composed by the eight vaag devis Vasini, Kameshvari, Aruna, Vimala, Jayani, Modini, Sarveshvari, and Kaulini upon the command of the goddess Lalita herself.
