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.
