KHADAGMALA STOTRA : A KEY TO UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF THE SRI CHAKRA.

KHADAGMALA STOTRA : A KEY TO UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF THE SRI CHAKRA.

( Sri Chakra drawn by Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi)

INTRODUCTION:

Sri Devi refers to Shakti, the divine mother, Khadaga means sword, Mala refers to garland and Stotram means a hymn or song of praise. So, the Khadagmala Stotram ( KS) is a hymn to the divine mother which is said to bestow a garland of swords upon those who recite it.

The KS takes us mentally through the Sri Chakra; i.e. the mystical geometric representation of the Transcendental Supreme Goddess. This Yantra consists of nine enclosures – each more secret and esoteric than the one before it – surrounding a central point, or Bindu, in which Devi, the Supreme Goddess (here in Her erotic form as Kameshwari) is joined in coitus with her consort i.e., Siva in His erotic form as Kameshwara

It has 15 variant versions one for each phase of the moon. The Sword bestowed upon those who recite the KS symbolizes the power (Energy) that enables us to transcend attachment, facilitating Self-Realization and leading us to the four principal aims of life – namely, dharma, artha, kaama, and moksha. As Sri Amritananda Natha explains, “the Sword metaphorically severs the head, separating the body from the mind. It can be interpreted also as Wisdom – that which separates, categorizes, and classifies. So it is a symbol of Knowledge. Khadgamala is about imagining a garland of synergistic ideas, nourishing and protecting them and putting life into them.”

Because it condenses a long series of complicated rituals into a very simple, easily achievable recitation/meditation that anyone can learn and hugely benefit from. The full puja (formal worship) of the Devis of the Sri Chakra takes hours because for each of them we pause and do a detailed “sub-puja.” Hence the sages of yore created this KS as an alternative, “short-form” recitation more suitable for the demands and time constrictions of modern-day life.

Even those who have not been initiated into Srividya can benefit greatly from the Khadgamala. Stotrams are one tool of Srividya Upasana that is open to all categories of people. It does not have ritualistic injunctions of dos and don’ts. Once a day practice is ideal – if possible, at the same time and same place. The preferable time is at night, just before going to sleep, as the practice will continue working on your resting mind.

It clears your doubts and fears, removes your psychic baggage, and prepares your mind and spirit for dramatic spiritual advancement. “It fulfills all wishes, more than you desire, instantly,” adds Sri Amritananda. “Therein lays its power. Regular practice protects you, nourishes you, and takes you beyond.”

 

 

PREPARATION:

One can prepare oneself by any or all of these methods before the recitation of the stotram. It is not mandatory to do this part and can be skipped without any negative injunctions. The governing concept here is that only the divine can worship the divine and hence one is in effect using these preparatory steps to make oneself divine.

 

  1. KARANASYA OR HAND EMPOWERMENT:

 

 

Karanyasa, or Hand Empowerment

I place the beeja AIM on my thumb.

 

While saying this, rub the thumb from its root upward with the tip of the index finger and visualize the thumb as being permeated with this beeja[1]

 

I place the beeja KLEEM on my index finger.

 

While saying this, rub the index finger from its root upward with the tip of the thumb.

 

I place the beeja SAUH on my middle finger.

 

While saying this, rub the middle finger from its root upward with the tip of the thumb.

 

 I place the beeja SAUH on my ring finger.

 

While saying this, rub the ring finger from its root upward with the tip of the thumb.

 

I place the beeja KLEEM on my little finger.

 

While saying this, rub the little finger from its root upward with the tip of the thumb.

 

I cover my arms with the beeja AIM.

 

Saying this, rub each hand from elbow down the forearm to the top of the hand with the other hand. Repeat on both hands.

 

B.ANGANYASA OR BODY EMPOWERMENT

 

Anganyasa, or Body Empowerment

 

NOTE: Now that the hand is energized, with that energized hand you are going to energize the whole body so that the body becomes Divine and hence authorized to recite the Khadgamala.

 

I place the beeja AIM in the heart region.

 

Place your right fist on your chest. Imagine the heart region to be energized and made divine by the beeja AIM.

 

I place the beeja KLEEM at the crown of the head.

 

Place the tip of the three fingers – thumb, index, and middle joined together – at the crown of your head.

 

I place the beeja SAUH at the place where one has his tuft of hair.

 

Place the fist of your right hand, thumb extended, on the back of your head

 

I encase myself in the armor with SAUH.

 

Cross your hands across the chest with ring finger bent — this mudra is called patAkA, the flag – all fingers extended except the ring finger bent at 90 degrees at the second phlange. Imagine a woman nude from the waist up and suddenly someone comes in. How does she cover her breasts? That’s the position, with the palm facing inward in patAkA mudra as an addition.

 

I place the beeja KLEEM on the three eyes.[2]

 

Place your right hand over your eyes as follows: forefinger on your right eye, middle finger at the place of the third eye and ring finger on your left eye.

 

With AIM I destroy all blocks to the sadhana.

 

Strike the left palm facing upward with the forefinger and middle finger so that the sound of an arrow’s release is created.and visualize arrows flying in every direction destroying any negativities around that may be waiting to pounce on you to stop you from doing sadhana or to snatch away the results of sadhana

 

I protect my body and the place of sadhana with the beejas “bhoorbhuvaswaraH AUM” and no negativity can penetrate this protective wall.

 

Snap your fingers around your head as protection. Imagine a wall of fire surrounding you and the place of sadhana protecting you from all the negativities around while letting in positive vibrations.

 

 

 

 

 

C.DHYANA OR MEDITATION:

“With breasts round and firm and curved like graceful jugs, adorned with shining jewelry;

Thus shall She be meditated upon, the Devi (Kameshwari) seated with Her Deva (Kameshwara) upon a red lotus.”

 

Sri Amritananda also offers this variant dhyana: “I meditate upon Sri Devi, glowing with red, yellow and blue flames of passion, fanning the arousal of Kameshwara, seated in the center of a triangle called HRIM, whose three points are the Three Gurus – Hari, Hara and Virinchi. She wears the Full Moon upon Her crown (SAUH); Her body is overflowing with the desire for Union (KLEEM) with Kameshwara, Lord of Desire. She wears a saree woven of golden threads; She is as fair as nectarine milk and the moonlight; She has three eyes; and in Her four hands, She carries the Book of All Knowledge, the noose, the goad, and a garland of letters. She embodies all that is beautiful, aesthetic, harmonious, joyful and vibrant; and She resides in the Sri Chakra.”

 

D.MANASA PUJA

 

                                                 Manasa Puja

 

With the earth beeja LAM, I offer all that is good on earth and everything that is desirable in the world, in the form of good association (satsanga) unto Devi and Kameswara.

 

So saying, rub your little finger from the root to the tip with the tip of the thumb, and in that process visualize everything offerable to the Devi on Earth (or in the waking state) being offered to Her – anything and everything that is permeated with the earth quality. You should be able to feel the smell of parched earth freshly soaked in rain at the tip of the little finger when you do it. You must actually smell it; it should not be imagined. Those around you should be able to smell it too.

 

With the ether beeja HAM, I offer all of my sensual desires unto Devi in the form of all ethereal flowers; all flowers in the world; all that is beautiful in the world.

 

Thus reciting the beeja, rub the tip of your index finger on the thumb from root to tip. HAM is the akasha or ether beeja. Ether is the quality with which one destroys the sensual desires. You are offering Her all that attracts you in the world – through love or hate; sexual or non-sexual attraction; every sensual pleasure, taste, smell, sight, etc.; all the pleasures that one can feel with the five senses. Once offered to Her, they are no longer yours, and hence you have overcome the sensual pleasures.Initially, this is all imaginary but as time goes by this will become real.

 

With the air beeja YAM, I offer everything in the heavens unto Devi.

 

So saying, rub the index finger from the root upward, with the thumb. Dhoopa or smell is the effect of the Vayu or air beeja. When you rub the index finger with thumb the smell of scented smoke should permeate the area. With this, we offer all the enemies to sadhana – internal and external – unto Devi so that they will cease to trouble us because once we have offered them to Her we have implicitly overcome them.

 

With the mind beeja RAM, I offer the lamp (representing the mental aspect of the Universe) unto Devi.

 

So saying you shall you shall rub the middle finger with the thumb from the root upward. In the process, you must feel the heat – the precursor of light – permeating the middle finger. The lamp is that which lights and hence bestows sight. With this offering, you shall light up the darkness of ignorance and hence gain divine vision capable of perceiving Devi’s form. With proper visualization you will be able to light a wick with this mudra reciting the fire beeja RAM. All mental processes that lead to enlightenment are thus offered unto Devi.

 

 

With the nectar beeja VAM, I offer all the nectarian qualities in the world, from earth unto the Ultimate (that is, Siva in the form of the joint Siva-Shakti aspect), in the form of sustenance for Devi that gives Her Divine Immanence pleasure.

 

Saying this, rub the ring finger with the thumb. On the esoteric plain, it is the Union of Seer and Seen. The bliss of this Union is offered unto Devi and the sadhaka must feel that bliss when offering naivedya.

 

 

With the beeja SAM, I offer to Devi the union of mind with Her in the form of the camphor flame.

 

Say this with hands folded in Anjali mudra, i.e., the holding of both hands palm joined (Westerners will most easily understand this mudra as the Indian gesture of “Namaste”). The camphor flame is that flame which leaves nothing behind as residue, and as such represents the Ultimate Union of the soul in Devi – whereby one merges ultimately, completely in the Absolute. Thus we have offered Devi all that is in the Universe, all that is contained in the Pancha bhootas (the five elements), and we have ultimately merged with Her, becoming One with Her. In the case of initiated kaulas, this camphor is replaced by absolute alcohol. After the offering this alcohol is poured on the floor in a flowing motion towards the right side and as it burns on the floor one shall touch it with the ring finger and the wetness of alcohol is applied to the forehead. This is called Shakti tilaka that grants shakti or power to the sadhak.

 

 

Now that we have become One with Devi, we mentally offer her paan, or betel leaves smeared with lime and with areca nuts, representing all esoteric knowledge, for Her pleasure – which is now Your pleasure.

 

Then we pray: “May the Great Devi – who is Bala Tripura Sundari and also the Great Kameshwari, who is One with the great and original Guru Siva – be pleased with the mentally offered Universe of the five elements. May She be pleased and happy, and grant me Her blessings.”

The walls of the first enclosure of Sri Chakra are generally represented in the Sri Yantra as three square enclosures with openings on their four cardinal points, collectively forming the first of the Nine Enclosures.

Nor is the red a deep blood red; it is aruna, the color of rising sun – a sort of orange-red.

I am so grateful to you Dr. Pallavi Kwatra Ji, to receive your book as a gift. The book is truly a Wave of Beauty – Saudarya Lahiri, literally. Expressing each of the 1000 sacred names of the Devi in a 1000 pictures is a first of its kind. I send my prayers for its success!

A very beautiful book! It should be in every library, and on every coffee table. I cannot think of a better gift for friends on the spiritual path.

This is a lovely collection of 101 seminal quotes from the great sage Ramana Maharshi, set in delightful designs by Dr. Pallavi Kwatra. A great coffee table book, this would also be a special gift for any spiritual seeker.

The Beautiful concept expressed in her unique way…

I received this book as a gift from the author herself. Unlike any other books, I queued it for a suitable time and space in order to leap into the engraved wisdom the words hid. As an author and above all as a spiritual-aspirant, Pallavi’s words always reflected something more than just an emotion, and this is the very reason, I wanted to create
an elegant space and time for myself to read her work. And let me be honest, those times I spent reading and absorbing her words became some of the finest moment of my spiritual journey. An eloquent style of narration and the choices of words separates Pallavi from other poets and poetesses I have come across. It is also an important
aspect that her words have the power to reflect a multitude of meaning in the reader’s mind and heart, which affirms her success as a spiritual and symbolic poetess.
Therefore, I am grateful for her to furnish one of the finest poetic works in this year, and gifted me those pearls of wisdom with all its humility and humbleness. ‘Be love’, in all its glory.

Be Love is beautiful! The most beautifully formatted Kindle book that I have. I think I will also get a physical copy too. The font and drawings aptly reflect the delicious content. I am in awe of the writer’s heart and poetic gift. I hope there is more to come.
Thank you.

Book : 9 Months: From Involution to Evolution: What’s App Satsang

Amazon Customer

For anyone interested in spirituality, Hindu philosophy and spiritual poetry, this book is
a rare and highly entertaining treasure. The author, a doctor and poet living in Delhi,
and an ardent devotee of Ramana Maharshi, started a Whatsapp group with eleven
other spiritually-inclined Indian-born doctors, some of them working in the West, and
their ensuing spiritual discussions form the contents of this book, thus giving a modern
twist to the age-old concept of satsang (spiritual discourse, literally meaning ‘joining
with truth’). The flow of gentle chatter among the participants is interspersed with
spiritual stories from various traditions, references to great Gurus of all eras, and
sizzling Zen-like spiritual poetry, the specialty of the author:
What a pity it is
That we fail to see
How unconditionally the sky
Walks alongside each of us.
Inspiring quotes from modern gurus like Sadhguru and Nannagaru are sprinkled
throughout, and lofty concepts such as predestination, grace, bhakti, moksha and
Enlightenment are bubbling through every paragraph. But it is not just talk; some of
those participating in this delightfully human conversation have experienced profound
bhavas and samadhi states, and their attempts to convey those ineffable experiences
inevitably inspire the reader to reach beyond their words into the experience itself.
Such is the great value and blessing of satsang, and the precious offering hidden
within these pages.
My gratitude to this book’s esteemed author, and all who participated in this divine
conversation!

This book is truly an unique blend of timeless wisdom, discussed on modern
technology. Twelve doctors meet over the period of nine months on the internet’s
WhatsApp site, to discuss religious beliefs, spirituality and philosophy. Dr. Pallavi
Kwatra, an anesthetist, captures the essence of each profound discussion and
presents it in a comprehensive and understandable manner. She also includes
spiritual poetry which adds an element of whimsical thoughtfulness to substantial
topics. Her introduction to each member of this group was delightful; the reader feels
as if she has met each one in person.
For anyone seeking to develop an intellectual understanding of spiritual topics, as well
as numerous ways to find fulfilling enlightenment, this book will provide many avenues
of exploration. Dr. Kwatra has presented us with a true treasure!

I found this book fascinating and delightful. The author organized an Internet-based
group of professionals to discuss spiritual matters in a unique way, with each person
bringing his or her specific background and predilection to the discussion. By
organizing her material in this way, Dr. Kwatra succeeded in presenting what might
otherwise have been "heavy" ideas in a refreshingly relaxed way. A thoroughly good
read!

The book is first of its kind documenting satsang through Whatsapp. I appreciate the
efforts of Dr Pallavi Kwatra who has organised the satsang among like-minded
persons interested in something beyond the material world. The group mainly consists
of highly educated professionals from medical and dental fields. It is amazing that
each of them has a great exposure to spiritual literature and have shared their
reflections on various issues and also their personal experience in life.
This book is designed in a dialogue form, where each one can share the knowledge
and experience with the other, who can verify and improve their knowledge.
While it cannot be assessed to what extent the difference has been made on the
thought process of the participants, but I am sure the reader will certainly benefit from
the collection of diverse opinions on various matters, leaving it to him to decide what is
most appealing to him.
Nevertheless, the path of self-realisation is different for each individual. The mind and
intellect, however, need a positive push and will get when we come across seekers
who are on the same path and finding some concrete results.
Though neither the participants nor the reader may fail to find all answers to their
questions, yet this collection of conversations amongst like-minded seekers will give
hope that self-realisation is possible, but we have to wait and fruitfully engage

ourselves in the path shown by enlightened souls. Let us hope that such breed of
intense spiritual seekers may multiply, taking cue from the efforts of Dr Pallavi who
used the medium of whatsapp effectively.
The participants, though have not fully blossomed spiritually, are on the right path,
who with their fearless search and boldness, are sure to reach the goal. They are
‘Little Masters’ in the making who will certainly inspire the new generation of spiritual
aspirants.

What an awesome read! It pulls down spirituality from the heavens to our daily
lives.No being is immune to the essence and energy of the universe, but we just don't
address it. Through these conversations, you realise, your whole being is just an
extension of the universe!! Thanks Dr. Pallavi!!

This is a beautiful, heart opening and achingly honest account of a personal
awakening process. The author’s poetic style is flowing with feeling and vibrancy. The
illustrations beautifully compliment each poem and pull the reader along with the
words from great sorrow to great joy. Thank you.

It’s a little treasure, in this day and age, to find.
The words go so beautifully with the illustrations, a combining of two Souls.
You will can see with each word that was written, was done with a deep sense of
passion, and Love.
The words just dance and caress your eyes as you read each page.
This is a woman who knows the very depth of her very being, and brings out what’s
inside of her, and gives it life.
As for San Deep, who did the illustrations, have a story all of their own……. of all “That Is” !!!!!!! You just have to look at the pictures, they touch your very core.
So the combination of these two people make for a wonderful journey into the Soul.

Yours Faithfully

Throughout all of human existence, great wordsmiths have grappled to put language
around the ineffable experience of love. In the grand tradition of the world’s greatest
poets, such as Rumi, Rilke, Hafiz, and others, poetess Pallavi Kwatra gives us a
glimpse into the transcendent heights, and lows, that laying ourselves on love’s altar
delivers. Again and again, she makes herself a devotee, allowing love itself to be her
guru, her master, her teacher, and her muse. From love`s crescendos to love’s depths
of despair, she lays her heart open, making of it a portal that we can walk through to
discover love’s glory. Very few writers are able to so eloquently deliver the sublime
delicacies that love has to offer. This is a feast to be savored poem by poem, line by
line, word by word, as one would savor the rarest of delicacies. Take each poem
in…let it open you, arouse you, awaken you, and deliver you to your own salvation
and redemption.

Book: Be Love

Soulwhisperer
Be-Love-Book-Cover-Front.png

When you let go of the me
The self is what you find
To be here and now and just be
To delve into an awakened mind

The chaos and order inside
The dance of desire and loathing
You observe the enchanting divide
At once beguiling and soothing

When you love the “I”;
And shed the “I am..”;
You let the ego die
Discern this body is a sham

Today when I fall in love
Uniting the Earth, the Soul and the Divine
In truth I rise above
The surface and own my brilliant shine

Book: Be Love
