hlīm̐ ।

ह्लीँ ।

 

Meaning:- The sthiramāyā bīja (seed) mantra hlī represents curbing and silencing (stambhana) of all enemies, internal and external, as well as obstacles in our material and spiritual progress. It consists of the letter ‘ha’ which is the ākāśa tattva representing the vast sky and the infinite space – ether and also Parāśiva representing perfect knowledge, pure bliss and dissolution of all sin and also prāṇa, the vital life-sustaining breath. The letter ‘la’ represents the earth or pṛthvi tattva, signifying stability and grounded nature. The letter ‘ī’ represents Mahāmāyā, the virtual reality. Lastly, the letter ‘m̐is nāda-bindu that dispels sorrow. Together, the signification is towards calming our taste, hunger, greed, speech and internal chatter in the mind, stabilizing the prāṇa or breath, which then leads to higher states of meditation to herald a spiritual transformation in due course of time. This mantra is also interpreted for calming the speech of the external opponents, when seen in the context of being a bīja mantra of Śrī Bagalāmukhī Devi as the most powerful brahmāstra vidya, which destroys all karmas and worries, impacting our material and spiritual progress.
