35. पञ्चपञ्चिकापूजा pañcapañcikāpūjā:

(pañcapañcin means fivefold)

This part of navāvaraṇa pūjā contains some important mantras of Her assistants.

This can be explained as fivefold pūjā. Five thrones are to be contemplated one above the other over Bindu. The first one just above the Bindu is to be contemplated.  These five thrones or pīṭha-s represent five stages of samādhi. Each pīṭha is presided over by one primary Śakti in the form Lalitāmbikā and four other śakti-s in the four cardinal vāyukoṇa (North West), īśāna (North East), Agni (South East) and nairṛti (South West). Each of these   pīṭha-s  are known by these names beginning from the lowest one, pañcalakṣmyaḥ (पञ्चलक्ष्म्यः) pañcakośāmbāḥ (पञ्चकोशाम्बा), pañcakalpalatāḥ (पञ्चकल्पलताः), pañcakāmadughāḥ (पञ्चकामदुघाः) and pañcaratnāmbāḥ (पञ्चरत्नाम्बाः) respectively. There are five śakti-s in each pīṭha and there are five pīṭha-s and thus we have to worship twenty five śakti-s pañcapañcikāpūjā.

These five pīṭha-s are to be visualized with bigger throne at the bottom and the smallest throne at the top. This is based on the fact that the lowest pīṭha is the grossest and the top most pīṭha is the subtlest. In fact, this can be said as the subtlest because, in this pīṭha, the aspirant becomes one with Her. These pīṭha-s represent five stages of samādhi beyond savikalpa stage. Savikalpa is the stage of samādhi where duality still persists. Soon after performing navāvaraṇa pūjā, one is supposed to contemplate Her to ultimately become one with Her. Contemplation attains perfection in successive stages, which are represented by these five pīṭha-s. In the fifth pīṭha, the one who performed navāvaraṇa pūjā with perfection and devotion becomes one with Her. The five stages of samādhi are sāmya (state of equilibrium), laya (absorption), vināśa (destruction or removal), atyantābhāva (absolute non-existence) and aikya (oneness with Her).

There are two different versions in doing pañcapañcikāpūjā. One is to merely contemplate on this aspect of becoming one with Her. Another is doing both pūjanaṁ and tarpaṇaṁ. Both are acceptable, as Lalitāmbikā alone prevails in the form of five Devi-s in the middle of each pīṭha. This is evident from the fact that mūlamantra is prefixed to the mantra for the pūjā done in the Bindu. Secondly, no pūjā or tarpaṇa can be done in the Bindu, except for Lalitāmbikā.  However, as this is related to the different stages of samādhi, it would be ideal to contemplate Her.

In the following mantras, numerical indicate the following.

1 – Middle (always prefixed with mūlamantra and Śrī Vidyā and represents Lalitāmbikā); 2 - vāyukoṇa (North West); 3 - īśāna (North East); 4 - agni (South East); 5 - nairṛti (South West). These numerical are indicated in the diagram below.

Those who perform both pūjā and tarpaṇa should use spptn and those who wish to contemplate Her should use namaḥ (नमः). Certain mantras are given in abbreviated forms without losing the essence of the mantras.
