Śri Rājarājēśvaryaṣṭakaṁ - Shri Rajarajeshvari Ashtakam - श्रीराजराजेश्वर्यष्टकम् - Lyrics

Śri Rājarājēśvaryaṣṭakaṁ - A hymn composed by the great Adī Śaṅkarācārya (788 CE - 820 CE) for beloved Mahātripurasundarī Lalitāmbikā Prakāśavimarśamaya Parābhaṭṭarikā Mahādevatā... The hymn praises the supreme goddess as Queen of all creation.

"prakāśa vimarśa sāmarasyātmaka parabrahmasvarūpiṇī"  (Sublime extract from Navavarana Puja Mantras of Śrī Vidyā). 

The rough translation would be "the source of splendour and the splendour herself, the light and the reflection, self-sustainable soul of all existence, original form of Brahman".


In the video with the ashtakam, some pictures assisting to grasp the essence of Devi worship in Śrī Vidyā.

Singer - Lalitha Sagari.
