Śrī Viṃśatyakṣara LaghuŚyāmalā Mahāmantraḥ (श्री विंशत्यक्षर लघुश्यामला महामन्त्रः) :-

Source:-  Śyāmalā Tantram.

Purpose:- To obtain spiritual wealth, attain excellence in education, arts and music.

Special Note:- This mantra is practiced on the 1st day/night of the Śyāmalā Navarātri. Śrī Laghu Śyāmalā is the primary attendant and charioteer of Śrī Rāja Śyāmalā. She guides in consuming our karmas that will eventually lead us to Śrī Rāja Śyāmalā. The grace of Śrī Rāja Śyāmalā cannot be attained without the assistance and concurrence of Śrī Laghu Śyāmalā. Without the proper knowledge and understanding, the Kuṇḍalini generally does not get activated and the same applies to the cakras as well. It is by the complete activation of the Kuṇḍalini, that we may become self-realized and strive for liberation.

Meaning:  Salutations to the Divine Mother who skillfully plays a jewel studded Vīṇā. She is in a highly intoxicated spiritual state, appears extremely beautiful and charming. In this state, She utters very soft words that become melodious music. She appears very majestic and is dark blue/green complexioned with a well proportionate body. She is the daughter of sage Mataṅga. May we meditate upon Her in our mind and consciousness.

She is the holder of the musical instrument Vīṇā. This lute type instrument has 24 frets representing the syllables of the Gāyatrī mantra. There are four melody strings that represent the holy Vedas. Also, there are three drone strings on the side, that signify the three nāḍīs or spiritual channels in the body that facilitate the rise of the Kuṇḍalini. They are the central channel Suṣumnā, the right channel Piṅgalā and the left Iḍā. The stem of the Vīṇā itself represents the spine along which the Kuṇḍalini flows. The music from the Vīṇā signifies all the frequencies and wavelengths of the entire Creation. Her spiritually intoxicated state, is the highest spiritual state of super-consciousness. Her dark complexion can be compared with the vast and infinite empty space and the state of pure consciousness alone. Mataṅga also represents the deep spiritually intoxicated state.

aim̐ namaḥ ucchiṣṭa-cāṇḍāli mātaṅgi sarva vaśaṅkari svāhā

ऐँ नमः उच्छिष्टचाण्डालि मातङ्गि सर्व वशङ्करि स्वाहा ।

Meaning:-

aim̐ (ऐँ) is the Aiśvarya mātṛkā and Sarasvatī bīja indicating wealth and also represents and bestows immense knowledge, mastery in arts and amazing creativity.

namaḥ (नमः) is the salutations bīja mantra, marking our deep reverence to the deity.

ucchiṣṭa-cāṇḍāli (उच्छिष्टचाण्डालि) is a name attributed to the Divine Mother to signify that She devours (cāṇḍāli) the leftovers (ucchiṣṭa). The leftovers are a reference to our karma that needs to be destroyed for us to gain freedom from the causal body and get liberated. The word ucchiṣṭa also signifies the unmanifested Brahman. In this context, the Divine Mother is often paired with Ucchiṣṭa Gaṇapati, a highly revered and spiritually intoxicated form of Lord Gaṇeśa.

mātaṅgi (मातङ्गि) – is another epithet of the Divine Mother denoting the ninth aspect of the Daśamahāvidyās – the ten wisdom goddesses. She is stated to be in a spiritually intoxicated state, since She represents the state that cannot be described by words but can only be experienced. It is a state beyond the deep sleep in the context of meditation. This is a state when we begin to experience our own consciousness and the realization of it being part of the super-consciousness begins to dawn upon us. This is the knowledge that the Divine Mother bestows upon us.

sarva vaśaṅkari (सर्व वशङ्करि) – the One who attracts everything and everyone!
