    (Divine Brahmanda)

  • 7/30/2019 Sri Devi Khadgamala Stotram With Meaning-Divine Brahmanda


    Sri Devi refers to Shakti, the Divine Mother. Khadga meansSword, Mala means Garland, Stotram means a hymn orsong of praise. So the Khadgamala Stotram (hereafter, KS)

    is a hymn to the Divine Mother, which is said to bestow agarland of swords upon those who recite it. The KS takesus mentally through the Sri Chakra; i.e. the mysticalgeometric representation of the Supreme Goddess. ThisYantra consists of nine enclosures each more secret andesoteric than the one before surrounding a central point,or bindu, in which Devi, the Supreme Goddess (here in Hererotic form as Kameshwari) is joined in coitus with her

    consort. As we make our way to the center of Sri Chakra,we pay homage to the 98 yoginis or aspects of Devi (byreciting each of their names) who guard the variouspower points of the charka along the way. Weinternalize each yogini to become Her; and this preparesus to meet the next yogini on our path and so on until wereach the center.

    'SHAKTI' (Devi) is the Sanskrit word denoting power, orenergy all Energy, whether we perceive it (from ourperspective) as positive or negative. (It is the Shakta beliefthat there is no positive or negative energy. Energy isalways the Creatrix.) Einstein said that all matter isenergy. Shaktism says all energy that is, everything inand of the three worlds is all DEVI. SHIVA is

    Consciousness, and is visualized as Devis consort.Consciousness energized by Power = the UNIVERSE. Energyanimated by CONSCIOUSNESS also = the UNIVERSE. Love the desire of SHAKTI and SHIVA to Unite as One is theessence of all Creation. That why the KS envisions Devi 'IN

    COITUS' with Her Consort. This implies that SHAKTI(Energy) is fully animated by SHIVA (Consciousness) Sheis, in fact, in an eternal state of creative orgasm. That is

    the cosmic bliss we begin to access through our sadhana(spiritual disciplines). The human sexual impulse is merelya metaphor for the Cosmic Creative Impulse that createsthat all we see and do not see. The Stotram is inviting usto ride that wave with Her; in essence, to become Her.The SWORD bestowed upon reciters of the KS symbolizesthe power (Energy) that enables us to transcendattachment, enabling Self-Realization. As Sri Amritananda

    Natha explains, the Sword [metaphorically] severs thehead, separating body from mind. It can be interpretedalso as Wisdom that which separates, categorizes, andclassifies. So it is a symbol of Knowledge. Khadgamala isabout imagining a garland of synergistic ideas, nourishingand protecting them and putting life into them.
