Today, by worshipping the Divine Mother Adi Parashakti you will start getting an inner feeling that either you are a sundara - handsome or you are a sundari - the beautiful one depending on the nature of your external form. Continuing in this manner, if you are a male then you become a sundara, if you are a female you will be called as soundarya. This is what the Divine Mother says and further continues that if you are a sundara or are called as soundarya, the first and the foremost quality you will develop is to become fearless.
Then the benevolent hand of Devi starts protecting you nurturing you and nourishing you with Her abhaya-hasta the hands of protection. This becomes your kavacha- protective armour. As the Divine Mother starts protecting you this way all the other divine qualities start manifesting in you. Remember that the Divine Mother is Tripura Sundari - the most beautiful whose beauty is par excellence in the three worlds. This clearly indicates that She will start Her manifestation inside you when you all constantly pray for Her. This is the time when She will start manifesting in you with Her vision of Her small childlike divine feet with the sound of Her anklet constantly ringing in your ears reverberating outside you and inside you as well. This is the melody of your soul. This automatically makes you to go inwards forgetting in fact all the noises and cacophony outside. You are now in meditation.
The beeja mantra of Devi starts along with the sound of the anklet both overlapping each other with a nada “Om Hreem” so on and so forth. This further takes you into deeper meditation oblivious of external surroundings or sounds. This is the almighty Devi Herself as shabda brahman or nada brahman.
Devi first starts manifesting herself as shabda brahman or nada brahman. The constant feeling of oneness with Devi when you start this sadhana before you coming to know the actual form, “I am a part of this soundarya and I am now floating in this wave of beauty itself.” Devi revels in a sweet melodious voice within you. Here Lord Shiva who is a part of Devi Herself starts his manifestation in you as Lord Kamaraja and then starts fulfilling your genuine desires by now. In this way Soundarya Lahiri fulfills genuine desires one by one.
In fact you will be amazed by this mystical experience happening in you. In normal parlance in case you have a good and a sweet dream you will wonder this is a true happening or a dream, by reassuring yourself you will be thinking once the dream is over whether to pinch yourself or not. This is the way Soudarya Lahiri starts working and manifesting within you changing the very outlook of yours internal as well as your external life itself.
