  Video above : Lalitha Sahasranamam Chanting with lyrics and meaning

The Lalitha Sahasranamam is an extremely powerful chant.It is said that Devi Herself ordered that this chant should be propagated and spread.

It is
Lord Hayagriva
said it was given to Hayagriva (
an incarnation of Mahavishnu with the head of a horse ) when Hayagriva was in thirst of getting liberation / mukti.

 By chanting the Lalitha Sahasranamam with devotion,Hayagriva was blessed with the Divine Mother Herself appearing and giving Him Mukti ( liberation )

 Lalitha Sahasranamam came directly from Lord Shiva,who passed it to Nandi.From Nandi,it went to Lord Hayagriva and then to Sage Agasthiyar.

Maharishi Vyasa then conveyed it to us ! Thus now we have this wonderful gift of being able to learn and chant the Lalitha Sahasranamam ! 

It is said that this is the most favoured form of prayer to Lalithambika Devi 

It is also said to be more powerful than any forms of Tantra or Mantra

In chanting Lalitha Sahasranamam,it usually begins with  Nyaasa ( salutations and invoking ) and Dhyaanam ( meditation on Lalitha Devi ) before the start of the 1000 names ( the 1000 names start with ' Sri Mata Sri Maharaagni ' )

    1. You can chant it anytime.Any person leaving their mortal coil has no restriction to chanting any vedic hymn or mantra.

    1. She is the supreme goddess of the universe and only she can decide when/if she can make you rich. One cannot say "chanting these many times" will give you her blessings. The karmic account is also looked at before she decides to grant anyone anything.

    2. If you are planning to use this great vedic treasure to seek materialistic wealth... you better leave it..

  11. Jai Mata Rajrajeswari.Endless love to Shiv-Shakti can reduce all sins in one life? I want to to be a flower of Mata Adishakti's Shri Shri Charan?

  17. Namaste,

    I have prayed to Matha Lalithambika by chanting Lalitha Sahasranama during my times of postpartum depression and stress. But, on one occasion, due to some family issue, i burst out in anger and sorrow. This my in laws believed that is due to my chanting Lalitha Sahasranama. I couldn't bear this. They keep telling me that chanting LS is not good for their family and all their grandparents & Great grandparents have tried to chant but obstructed with various reasons. (once their grandfather cut off his fingers while cutting vegetables, which they believed was due to chanting LS). MY in laws family are strenuous believer and reader of Vishnu Sahasranama, but are not ready to accept LS or allowing me to read. Please help me out. Is there anything like one particular God will not be good for a family? I am confused and surprised. My maternal family reads all slokas including VS and LS.

    1. This is utter stupidity.. and a very great insult to Lalitha Devi...

      Please continue chanting with devotion to Devi.

      There is a possibility that your in laws are strict vaishnavites..endowed with fanaticism and this may be an excuse to drag you away from Shakti Worship ...

  18. I how many months and time required to chant one crore lalitha sahasranam
