Sri Matre Namaha
Arunaruna-kausumbha-vastra-bhaswat-katitatee – The thirty seventh name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.
arunarunam ca kausumbam ca yadvastram tena basvati katyah tati yasyah sa
She whose waist is resplendent with a very red cloth (i.e., Sari)
Arunavad arunam = arunarunam
The word arunaruna also means the cloth which is as red as aruna (the charioteer of the Sun)
She wears a red silk clothe around her waist. Possibly this could mean two things. We have already seen that three lines in her stomach represent her three activities. Red colour means compassion, which also we have seen earlier. Everything associated with Her is red in colour, indicating that her form is full of compassion. We can say that she performs her three acts with compassion. That is why the three lines are covered by this red cloth. This could also mean one of the vak devis, Aruna. This sahasranamam was composed by eight vak devis. They are Vasini, Kameshwari (not Shiva’s wife), Modhini, Vimala, Aruna, Jaini, Sarveshwari and Koulini. This Aruna vak devi is in her waist.
