Śrī devī khaḍgamālārchanam श्री देवी खड्गमालार्चनम्

This is more or less a mini version of navāvaraṇa pūjā without involving elaborate procedures and in particular establishing arghya vessels. Though, this cannot be a replacement of regular navāvaraṇa pūjā, yet it pleases different śakti-s in Śri Chakra. Perfection attained in doing this as archana will enable us to understand all the śakti-s of Śri Chakra, which will be of great help while doing navāvaraṇa pūjā. There are fifteen versions of khaḍgamālā, corresponding to fifteen lunar days (tithi-s) and fifteen akṣara-s of Pañchadaśī mantra. Khaḍgamālā is based on number of akṣara-s in each of these versions. Similarly, dhyāna verses, ṛṣi and chandas differ according to the lunar day and the akṣara. What is given here is śuddha śakti namonta mālā, which is generally used for archana.
