The Lalitā Sahasranāma (LSN) that strings together a thousand names of the Goddess opens the mystical door that alchemizes limited paradigms into unbounded love, that arises from the recognition of That which subsumes all divisions and limitations. When we invite the LSN into our inner landscape, it becomes a garland of mantras, where every life experience is rendered sacred because it can be found in the velvety folds of the chant. This kind of practice opens us to uncommon wisdom and sweetness – this is Glorious Alchemy.
The commentary in this book is simple and straightforward, retaining the subtleties of the original Sanskrit while being accessible to the modern reader. It takes a non-traditional approach in providing a primer on the Goddess-centered path known as Śrīvidyā in Part I, while Part II threads together the thousand nāmas as it relates to life and personal practice.
The ten forms of Shakti known as the Mahavidyas represent not only macrocosmic forces such as time and space, but also various interconnected shadow and light aspects in our psyche. The Mahavidyas have traditionally been steeped in esoteric and mystical descriptions, often removed from the practicalities of the spiritual journey.
