Translated by P. R. Ramachander

The Lalitha Trishathi Stotram is also known as the Sarva Poorthikara stotram.

There is a very large school of thought which gives primacy to Shakthi which is the female aspect of energy of the Gods. The followers of Shakthi were called Shakteyas. Among this group rose a peculiar group of sages who were called Tantrics. They believed in Shakthi only and worshipped her using methods which was not considered "normal", for example worshipping a virgin, doing Yoga sitting on a corpse and so on. They also preferred acts over mostly. To them, the names of Goddess had some divine meaning, which would give them supernatural powers. They also believed in animal and even human sacrifice. From them rose voluminous religious literature dedicated to Shakthi. In these books sounds were considered extremely important. Chanting each Sound was believed to result in different benefits. The most important of these ancient books is the Devi Bhagavatam, Devi Mahatmyam (from Markandeya Purana), Lalitha Sahasranama and Lalitha Trishathi (both also from the Brhamanda Purana)

These are contained in the chapter called Lalithopakyanam. This entire chapter is in the form of conversation between Hayagreeva and Sage Agasthya. Agasthya is also the saint who is supposed to have originated the Tamil language by writing its first book of grammar.

Lalitha is the name of the goddess and means, She who can be easily attained or She who is simplicity personified. Adi Shankara has written a bhashyam. He also has contributed to Shakteya literature by writing a book called Soundarya Lahari.

In the Lalithopakyanam chapter, Hayagreeva teaches Agasthya the famous Lalitha Sahasranamam. But Agasthya does not get satisfied because he feels that his teacher has not taught him one another important Stotra. Hayagreeva hesitates because that one stotra is extremely secret. Then Lalitha herself appears before Hayagreeva and asks him to teach Agasthya, the most secret of the stotras called Laltha Trishati. She also tells him that this is the Sarva Poorthikara stotra meaning “that stotra which completes everything.” Then Hayagreeva thanks his disciple for giving him an opportunity of seeing the Goddess Lalitha herself and teaches him The Lalitha Trishathi stotra.

This stotra recounts the 300 names of the goddess. Twenty names each start from each of the fifteen letters which form the Pancha dasakshari manthra (the 15 letter manthra). This manthra is


The first five letters (vaag bhava Koota) given in the first line originate from the Mooladhara (Literally basic support or the support which is the root) which is situated below the vertebral column. This is supposed to house the baser instincts in man. This manthra (entire first line) is supposed to rise from Mooladhara like the fire in time of deluge and touch the anahatham (the basis for food)

The second six letters (Kama raja koota) start from the anahatham with the power and brilliance of billions of sun and touches the Agna Chakra(Literally the wheel of command).

The last four letters (Shakthi koota) starts from the Agna chakra like the soothing light of billions of moon and touches the Lalata Madhya(The center of the forehead). This series of sounds is supposed to start from the baser instincts (Compared to a coiled serpent sleeping in The Mooladhara) lights one by one the Stomach, the chest and travels through the Sushmna Nadi and blossoms the unopened bud of the Lotus with thousand petals in the brain. Once this is opened the Yogis believed that there is no knowledge in earth and heaven that you did not know.

Each line of Panchadasakshari manthra is considered equivalent to one Gayatri.

Because of this the chanting of Lalitha Trishathi is supposed to lead to great benefits to the Sadhaka. It is supposed to give him all that is needed.

Phala Sruthi

After teaching him the Lalitha Trishathi Stotra sage Hayagreeva told Agasthya that out of the 15 letters of Panchadasakshari Manthra the letters Ka(thrice repeated) and Ha(twice repeated ) are the letters indicating Shiva., Hrim (thrice repeated) is a letter indicating Shiva and Shakthi as well as the Trimurthis and the rest of the seven letters are the letters indicating Shakthi. Then Hayagreeva explains to Agasthya the formation of Srichakra. He also tells him that:

  1. Just by one repetition of the Lalitha Trishathi stotra, the mind becomes full of contentment and peace.
  2. All that can be attained by Thantra can be attained by chanting of this great stotra
  3. Without any desire,if a devotee chants these, the Goddess would judge what he wants and give him all those.
  4. People without devotion and honesty should never chant this because then negative effects will result.


  1. This alphabet ‘ka’ represents light- This is also the first letter of the Pancha dasakshari manthra
