Lalitha Devi’s Abode Chinatmani Gruham Details

In Hinduism on April 17, 2014 at 10:10

Devi Lalita resides in Her Abode Chinatmani,


“Smaram yonim Lakshmeem thrithayamidamaadau thava manoh
Nidhaayaike nithye niravadhimahaabhogarasikah
Bhajanthi thvaam Chintamani gunanibaddhaakshavalayah
Shivaagnau juhvanthah surabhighruthadhaaraahuthi shathaih.”

Literal meaning:-Some connoiseurs of the highest enjoyment,adding before the beginning of Thy mantra(verse)the Bija-syllables of Kaamaraaja(kleem),Bhuvaneswari(hreem),and Sree(shreem)and adorned with a necklace of Chintamani,worship Thee with oblations consisting of countless streams of Kamadhenu‘s ghee in the purified fire of Shiva(i.e.Shakthi established as the thrikona in the anaahatha-chakra).

Sonundaryalahari of Adi Shankaracharya.


Sumeru madhya shrungasthaa Sreemannagaranaayika
Chintamanigruhaantha:sthaa Panchabrahmaasanasthithaa!”-Lalita Sahasranama.

In Sri.Bhaaskararaya’s commentary on Lalitha Sahasranamam , the term “Chintamani” is described as thus:-


Chintamani is that jewel which yields all the objects desired;of this the city is built.


Lalitha Devi in Her Abode, Chintamani

Maha Tripura Sundari, in Chintamani Gruham


This house is described in detail in the Brahmaanda Purana,”In that house of Chintamani all is Chintamani.”This house having an extent of a thousand yojanas is above the world system.


The Rudrayaamala says,”In that Chintamani house of a thousand yojanas in extent.


“The house which is on Meru is smaller in size.


The Lalithaasthavaratna (v.105) says,”May that house,built of Chintamani stone which is on the northern side of Sringaaravana (on Meru),whither all the devas go to worship,remove all my mental trouble(chinta).”


In the commentary on Gowdapaada-sutra(no.7)the Chintamani house is explained as the place of origin of all those mantras which bestow all desired

objects(chinthitha),and its construction is elaborately described.

Chintamani is specially mentioned in the 3rd,8th and the 33rd slokas of Soundarya Lahari.


jadhaanaam chaithanyasthabakamakarandasruthijhari
Daridraanaam Chintaamanigunanikaa janmajaladhau
Nimagnaanaam dhamshtraa muraripuvaraahasyabhavathi.”


The dust of Thy lotus feet is the Island City,wherefrom takes place the luminous sun-rise of spiritual illumination driving away the over-casting darkness of ignorance in the hearts of the devotees.


It forms the cluster of flower buds from which gushes forth the nectar of intelligence,enlivening the dull-witted.


It is a veritable necklace of wish-yielding gems for the poverty-stricken.And for those immersed in the ocean of worldly affairs,it becomes their uplifter like the tusk of Vishnu,which raised the earth from submergence in pralayaa waters when He incarnated as the Cosmic Boar.


The Nagara.


Nagara had 25 streets circling it, made of iron, steel, copper, and lead. An alloy made of five metals, silver, gold, the white Pushpa raga stone, the red Padmaraga stone, onyx, diamond, Vaidoorya, Indra neela (topaz), pearl, Marakatha, coral, nine gems and a mixture of gems and precious stones.


In the eighth street was a forest of Kadambas.


This is presided by Syamala. In the fifteenth street lived the Ashta Digh palakas. In the sixteenth lived Varahi alias Dandini who was her commander-in-chief.


Here Syamala also has a house.


In the seventeenth street lived the different Yoginis. In the eighteenth street lived Maha Vishnu.


In the nineteenth street lived Esana, in the twentieth Thara Devi, twenty-firstVaruni, the twenty-second Kurukulla who presides over the fort of pride,


twenty-third Marthanda Bhairava, twenty-fourth the moon and twenty-fifth Manmatha, presiding over the forest of love.

Devi With Beeja Shakti Peeta Pithapuram

In Hinduism on March 14, 2014 at 08:30

Pithapuram, Andhra Pradesh , India, is where the Devi‘s left hand fell.


Ujjainyam Maha kali, Peethikayam Puruhutika /
Odhyane Girija devi, Manikya Daksha vatike // Asthta Dasa Stotram ,Shankaraharya.

The Goddess in Puruthika Devi and the Lord is Kukkudeswara.



The idol of Puruhuthika devi has four hands. They contain bag of seeds (Beeja), axe (Parashu), lotus (Kamala) and a dish (Madhu patra) from lower-right to lower-left in order.

Puruthika Devi, Pithapuram.

Puruthika Devi, Pithapuram.

Previously there were two sects of Upasakas in Pithapuram worshiping Puruhootika devi. The first one calling her as Puruhootha Lakshmi (Meditating on Kamala and Madhu patra) and worshiping in Samayachara and the second one calling her Puruhoothamba (Meditating on Parashu and Beeja) and worshiping in Vamachara. There is also a tale that the original statue of Puruhutika devi was buried under the temple which was worshiped by them.


Once Indra has cheated Ahalya (wife of Gautama maharshi) in the form of Gautama and was cursed by the Maharshi. Indra lost his testes and got the symbols of Yoni all over his body. He felt very sad and prąyed Gautama a lot. Finally the Rishi accepted and told that the Yoni symbols will look like eyes, so that Indra will be called as Sahasraksha there after. But Indra lost his testes. He wanted to regain them. He left his kingdome, came to Piithika puri and did Tapasya for Jaganmata. After a long time Jaganmata appeared before him and blessed him with wealth and testes. Indra was very happy and prąyed her as Puruhutika devi (One who was worshiped by Indra).

This is also a Vishnu Kshetra where Kunthi worshiped Lord Vishnu.
