Description

Lalita kosha contains an elaborate introduction dealing with several aspects of the cult of goddess Lalita. The thousand names have been given in English translation also, with explanations wherever necessary. Illustrations are also included. The volume comprehends almost the entire literature that is available on Lalita in Sanskrit. This may serve as a companion volume to the Tantrik practices in Sri-Vidya. The volume also contains the text of Lalita-sahasra-nama-strotra, both in the verse-form and in the form of names as recited during worship. The portion dealing with Lalita (Lalitopakhyana) from Brahmanda-purana, and a text closely related to these two, namely Lalita-trisati are appended. Many of the expressions like shadadhva, panchopachara, dasa-mudra, Kama-kala and so on have been explained in the author's volumes on Agama-kosha. The illustrations included here are from sculptures in temples and from medieval manuscripts prepared in Mysore
