Śrī Mahātripura Sundarī Stotraṃ - Śiva Rahasya Tantrokta Mantrotkīlana Vimocana Stotram (2nd Variation)

(महात्रिपुर सुन्दरी स्तोत्रं - शिवरहस्य तन्त्रोक्त मन्त्रोत्कीलन विमोचन स्तोत्रम्)

Prologue –

It is believed that by default all Mantras, yantras, stotras and kavacas are said to be locked and sleeping. There are procedures and rites called samskārā-s that are mentioned in the tantras for unlocking and awakening them.

The word Kīlakaṃ means a pin and is generally specified in the Viniyoga section of a mantra. Understanding and acknowledging the Kīlakaṃ bīja (seed) mantra, helps with the unlocking of the mantra in a gradual manner. It is to be noted that the Kīlakaṃ bīja is placed on the navel Maṇipūraka cakra, which is said to be the energy center amongst the cakras and is the key to the higher and lower cakras. The Creator Brahma, is said to arise from the navel of Mahāviṣṇu and is bestowed with the power to manifest the Universe.

The Mātṛkās are made up of the Sanskrit Alphabet with the nāda-bindu suffixed to each one of them. Each Mātṛkā is endowed with a unique power that facilitates the acts of Creation, Preservation and Destruction. In the human context, they help us in achieving success in various aspects of our life and gradually infuse spirituality and lead us towards self-realization and ultimate emancipation called Mokṣa.

Every mantra is a combination of Mātṛkā alphabets and therefore the awakening of the Mātṛkās in the form of mantras and stotram, is considered key to the fruition of all mantras.

While there are specific śāpavimocana, utkīlana, dīpana and sañjīvana mantras available for main mantras like Durga Saptaśati, Ṣoḍaśī etc, there are many more mantras for which, these are not available. In that scenario if you wish to quickly awaken the mantras then there are 2 variants of Sarva śāpavimocana/Utkīlana mantras available in tantras, both of which are attributed to Śiva Rahasya and in praise of the Divine Mother Lalita Tripurasundari.

Variant 1 is already posted and you may click Here to read the article

Variant 2 is being published as part of this article

This is a stotram attributed to the Divine Mother Śrī Mahātripura Sundarī and is said to be from an obscure tantra called Śiva Rahasya Tantra. The stotram is said to remove all obstacles associated with any mantra and proclaims success in energizing and infusing life into the mantras, yantras, stotras, kavacas etc to awaken and activate them to fulfill their stated purposes.

The stotram can be recited on a regular basis to enjoy its stated benefits. No specific duration or length of time have been specified, but it can be deployed immediately, if any of the initiated mantras are not yielding the desired results, even after making sincere efforts in mantra japa spanning several months/years and exceeding millions of count. One may also decide to recite this stotra, if there is a keen desire to do so or as guided by one’s guru.

Meaning:- This prayer/mantra japa is to invoke the stotram, to achieve the purpose of pinning down and unlocking the potential of all mantras - Śrī sarva mantrotkīlana vimocana. This will enable us to also infuse life and energy to all the mantras, that we wish to undertake for the purposes of obtaining the four puruṣārtha-s: dharma (justice, law), artha (wealth), kāma (desires) and mokṣa (liberation).

The sage (ṛṣiḥ) is Mūla prakṛti puruṣa (Śiva in His aspect as the Creator Brahma, is subtly referred here), the meter (chandas) for the mantra is Anuṣṭup Jagatī and the deity is the Śrī Mahāvidyā, the seed (bījaṃ) is hrīm̐, the power or śakti is the formless Niraṅkārā Māyā. The key (kīlaka) to unlock the mantra is kraum̐.

Let us meditate upon the pure Consciousness (Super-consciousness Brahman) and erupt in the ecstatic joy generated by the Brahma vījā am̐ (अँ). The entire Creation is brought forth comprising the sentient beings and inanimate objects. Protection is offered by an entire gamut of manifested Mātṛkā mantras. Further, the prakṛti puruṣa vījam aḥ (अः), encompassing all other Mātṛkā seed syllable vījā-s in between, beginning from am̐, together bring about a wholesome effect of enlivening (sañjīvanam), unpinning of mantras and yantras (utkīlanam), as well as elimination and removal of all obstacles and curses limiting the powers of all mantras (śāpa vimocana).

The Mātṛkā-s am̐ and aḥ throw light upon the subtle aspects of the Creation and also help in fulfilling all desires and aid in the final act of spiritual emancipation. Together, all the Mātṛkā-s aid in the fruition of all mantras.
