Name 380 Lalitasahasranama
Meaning: She who lives in the dot in the center of the Sri Chakra.
The empress Goddess Shree Lalitatripurasundari is the presiding deity of the Sri Yantra and accompanied by a group of other Goddesses carries the blueprint of all coded information in this graphic blessing of the Mahameru. The Sri Yantra or Sri Chakra is a form of a mystical diagram (yantra) used in the Shri Vidya school of Hindu tantra. It consists of nine interlocking triangles that surround a central point known as a Bindu. These triangles represent the cosmos and the human body. Because of its nine triangles, Sri Yantra is also known as the Navayoni Chakra. The Bindu (Visharga) or point in the center of the Sri Yantra symbolizes the creative point of the creation of the Universe, the point of origin and return. It is the unity of the God aspect (Shiva) and Goddess aspect (Shakti) in the union of that act of creation.
Her grace makes one eligible for pleasure and joy in this world and ensures liberation for the soul after its exit. She is the portal to the beyond and can be tapped using regular chantings of Lalitasahasranama.
May we continue to sing her hymns and be blessed with her grace for all days. May the power and truth of the self reveal itself. Let us be at the BINDU of the self eternally.
