Each and every name within the stotram corresponds to a unique divine energy contained within the Sri Chakra, the sacred design which transmits the energy of the highest divine consciousness. Amma has said that chanting this stotram every day will definitely lead to enlightenment, and that the same peak experience gained from ten hours of meditation can be attained from this highly energetic stotram.

I've taken this khadgamala including anganyasa, karanyasa by a guru. After three years, unfortunately, due to some strong situations, I left this khadgamala vidya through leaving water in a bowl. But now, this became very important to me. Can I continue by taking permission from Devi maa? Thanks a lot! Om Devyai Namaha! Post a Comment.
Thursday, September 6, Devi Khadgamala Stotram. Sri Devi refers to Shakti, the Divine Mother. Khadga means Sword, Mala means Garland, Stotram means a hymn or song of praise.
The KS takes us mentally through the Sri Chakra; i. This Yantra consists of nine enclosures — each more secret and esoteric than the one before — 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 see FAQ 2, below. We internalize each yogini to become Her; and this prepares us to meet the next yogini on our path — and so on until we reach the center.
What is the symbolic meaning of the KS? Energy is always the Creatrix. Einstein said that all matter is energy. Shaktism says all energy — that is, everything in and of the three worlds — is all DEVI. That is the cosmic bliss we begin to access through our sadhana spiritual disciplines. The human sexual impulse is merely a metaphor for the Cosmic Creative Impulse that creates that all we see and do not see. The Stotram is inviting us to ride that wave with Her; in essence, to become Her.
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. Of all the Shakta recitations, why did you choose to share the KS? The KS is a very advanced, very powerful recitation from the Srividya school of Shaktism — and yet it is totally within the reach of anyone who approaches it in a spirit of serious, sustained devotion and practice.
Why should I use it? The full pooja of the Devis of the Sri Chakra takes hours, because at each point we pause and do smaller, detailed poojas. Hence the sages of yore created this KS as an alternative, short-form recitation that is more suitable for the demands and time constrictions of modern life.
According to one advanced Srividya upasak who is a member of this group: "All of the sadhana of Srividya can be achieved by the recitation of the Khadgamala. Hours of long ritual compressed to less than half an hour of intense meditation that will give you a ticket on the same plane as the great Srividya Upasakas.
Whatever your developmental stage, this is IT. Stotras are one tool of Srividya upasana that is open to all categories of people. All you need do is recite; then, by and by, the Devis will become visible and you will feel the bliss of union with the ultimate and as one goes on, the necessary teachers will appear as if from thin air and guide you further this is the personal experience of many a member of this group. How do I begin? Listen and read till you know it by heart.
Then listen only. Then stop even that. Just contemplate it in your mind. How do I recite the KS? The power comes from intensifying concentration to visualize the form, hear the sound, feel the touch, taste, and smell of the divine perfume of the [yogini] manifesting that part of the ever youthful Goddess. She is deeply in love with you, making you Siva.
You can add power and depth as you move along. We are there to help you. Also, in your meditation, do not try too hard to concentrate — because you cannot!! Just recite, let the mind wander; let it do whatever it wants. Still the result will come. If one tries to concentrate, the body will become tense and the results will not appear. How often should I use it? Once a day is ideal. So do it daily; and, if possible, at the same time and same place.
But if your circumstances make that kind of commitment difficult or impossible, do not worry! Simply do it when you can. What is the effect of using it supposed to be? Regular practice protects you, nourishes you, and takes you beyond.
Is it okay to recite Khadgamala Stotram without a guru? Yes, it is a stotra and is also a mala mantra i. Keep in mind that the original source document of the Stotram has been lost, to the best of modern knowledge, other than a few stray excerpts that have survived here and there. So injunctions, if any, have also been lost. But the simple fact is that many, many people have recited the KS without injunctions and attained everything.
Therefore, it can safely be assumed that there are no negative injunctions. Posted by Raja Thatha at PM. Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.
Phala Sruthi of Devi Gadgamala Stotram

Ramachander In my earlier posting of my translation of the Devi Gadkamala stotra , the phala Sruthi has unfortunately been left out. I am now posting it separately.
