Sri Matangi Ashtottara Shatanamavali

Friday, June 01, 2018

Sri Matangi Ashottara Shatanamavali (108 Names of Sri Matangi)

श्री मातंगी अष्टोत्तरा शतनामावली

The aṣṭottara śatanāmāvali (108 names) of śrī mātaṅgi is a treatise in itself, containing the very essence of the śrī mātaṅgi sahasranāma. All the benefits that can be accrued through reciting the sahasranāma, may also accrue through the aṣṭottara śatanāmāvali, if we can also meditate upon the meanings of each nāmā.

The aṣṭottara śatanāmāvali describes the key attributes of śrī mātaṅgi, spanning across the entire spectrum ranging from Her physical attributes to Her spiritual splendor described from the purānic accounts, tantric śāstrās, relationship with śrī vidyā, kuṇḍalini meditation and Her aspect as Brahman Itself!

She is the tantric form of Sarasvati (Saraswati) or Vāṇi, the goddess of Knowledge. From the nāmā-s, we see Her true form and splendor. Worshipping Her in majestic form and beauty, provides us with not only knowledge of what all we seek, but also that of the greatest spiritual secrets and the real knowledge of our own true form, that is, of pure consciousness Itself. She is also śrī lakṣmi, the bestower of all wealth, material and spiritual. She is śrī mātā Herself and is everything that exists! In a śrī vidyā parlance, She is śyāmala, the chief advisor of śrī Lalita. She and śrī Vārāhi, are the closest to śrī Lalita and lead us to Her. In the human body, śrī mātaṅgi is the left nāḍi, iḍa corresponding to the left nostril and the right side of the brain, indicating artistic and logical aspects and śrī Vārāhi is the right nāḍi piñgala, corresponding to the right nostril and the left part of the brain, representing action. When the nāḍi-s are balanced, the kuṇḍalini rises through the suṣumṇa, energizing the cakras and utlimately revealing our true existence, as self-realization.

Deepest gratitude to Shri Ruslan Odinstov, a great tantrik and worshipper of śrī mātaṅgi for proof reading, suggestions on the commentary and blessing this document.

The sound of brahman is oṃ, also called as śabda brahman. Namaḥ is obeisance to the Lord. Para-Brahman is also referred to as ucchiṣṭa brahman or ucchiṣṭa gaṇeśa, due to the fact that It remains a Whole, even after the manifested Brahman is taken out of It.

The navārṇa mantra is combined with the auspicious aspect of Lord Gaṇeśa - ucchiṣṭa gaṇeśa, to grant complete victory in all our pursuits!

Overall, The mantra is regarded as a very auspiciousness and an extremely powerful mantra of Lord Gaṇeśa.

AVADHŪTA GĪTĀ - 7

Sunday, March 12, 2017

Bhagavān Dattātreya continues:  

Upaniṣad-s explain how māyā projects objects as different things from Brahman (It is the māyā that makes us to think that the objects we see are real and different from Brahman; the fact is that everything is Brahman, hence It is called Omnipresent or all pervasive). Brahman is not divisible (hence omnipresent) and hence, there cannot be any comparison for a non-dual Brahman (comparison is possible only if more than one object is present). It is free from actions ...Read More

PATANJALI YOGA SUTRAS - 10

Sunday, May 07, 2017

Samādhi is attained through the mind that is free from all kinds of thought processes or desires. If the mind has traces of thought processes or desires, they will disturb samādhi after sometime. First ten or fifteen minutes of samādhi is important. Thoughts, if any, compromise the quality of samādhi during this time. (Different types of samādhi-s are discussed in GURUJI SPEAKS). Patañjali speaks about dharmamegha samādhi ...Read More

Theory And Practice of Kundalini Meditation - Introduction

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Kuṇḍalinī is not just a force, but Parāśakti Herself in Her subtlest form. It is one of the quickest methods to liberation. Even without practicing kuṇḍalinī, She ascends to higher chakras depending upon one’s level of love (the highest form of devotion) for Her. Ascension of kuṇḍalinī is directly related to the purity level of one’s mind. Yoga Cūḍāmaṇi Upaniṣad talks abou90t the importance of kuṇḍalinī. Verse 37 says, “Kuṇḍalinī rests in the passage of Brahman. If one goes through this passage, Brahman is attained.” Passage of Brahman that is referred here ...Read More

Maha Shodashi Mantra Explained

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Mahāṣoḍaśī mantra is formulated like this.

First line:  om - śrīṁ - hrīṁ - klīṁ - aiṁ - sauḥ (ॐ श्रीं ह्रीं क्लीं ऐं सौः)

Place śrī bīja, then place māyā bīja, then kāma bīja, then vāgbhava bīja and finally parā bīja. Thus the first line of this mantra is formed.

There is a common doubt whether to include ॐ in the beginning or not. Any mantra should start with ॐ. Kulārṇava Tantra (XV.57) says that not beginning a mantra without ॐ causes impurity of birth. Further, Chāndogya Upaniṣad begins by saying “om iti etat akṣaram udgītham upāsīta ॐ इति ...Read More

ATMA BODHA - THE EPILOGUE

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Śaṃkarācārya who had authored many works on dvaita or dualism such as Saundaryalaharī, etc. had also authored Supreme Advaita Scriptures or non-dualistic Scriptures like Ātmabodhaḥ, Tattvabodhaḥ, Vivekacūḍamaṇi, etc. What is the need for Śaṃkarācārya to author both dualistic and non-dualistic Scriptures? He was a loka Guru (Guru for the world) and he had the dual responsibility of developing bhakti (devotion) and at the same time, leading elevated souls to the path of ...Read More

Will You Come Back Guruji - Part 1

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Part 1

Guruji in the horizon is a short story about a rustic boy ultimately transforming into a Spiritual Guru. The story will be published as a series, containing a number of parts. Here is part 1:

It is yet another day.  I always like the dawn - the creeks of birds, misty leaves and the redness of the dawn. Red stands for compassion.  I used to wonder how the sun being so red at the time of dawn gradually turns white.  I live near river Cauvery. It is good to walk on the sandy river bed.  The tiny sand grains acupressure my feet and I used to enjoy this.  The river was flowing with the rustic sound that changes every minute.  In ...Read More

Spiritual Journey - 20

Sunday, January 01, 2017

Avadhūta and Paramahaṁsa are essentially jīvanmukta-s. After evolving into a jīvanmukta, one decides how he or she pursues his or her life, till he or she becomes videhamukta (mokṣa – after death). Only a yogi can evolve into a jīvanmukta. A perfect yogi is the one, who has realized the Self within. He is shaped into a yogi by his Guru, without whom, imparting higher spiritual knowledge and practice is not possible. All Advaita Scriptures ultimately convey that Brahman is within and what is within, pervades the entire universe. This essence is conveyed to his disciples by a Guru. There are hundreds of Scriptures in Advaita such as Upaniṣad-s, Bhagavad Gītā, Yoga Vāsiṣṭha, Pañcadaśi, etc. Each of these Scriptures reveal Brahman ...Read More
