Champak-ashoka-punnaga-saugandhiga-lasat-kacha – The thirteenth name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.

Chamapakashokapunnagadi Saugandhikani taih lasantah kacah yasya sa

She whose hair is adorned with the Fragrant flowers of Champaka, asoka Punnaga etc

We were treated to her radiance in the earlier slokas, now we get to hear about her description. LSN Starts with the head. Since head is the Vagbhav Kuta and the first Kuta of the Panchadasi mantra.

Champakam, ashokam, punnagam, saugandhigam are the four types of fragrant flowers that adorn Her hair. But her hair does not get fragrance because of these flowers, whereas these flowers get their fragrance from Her hair. Her hair is always sweet smelling. In Soundarya Lahari (SL) verse 43, Shankara (aathi Shankara, the greatest saint of our times who spread the philosophy of non-duality) said that her hair has natural wetness and extremely soft. That wet and soft nature of the hair will drive away our ignorance (ignorance about the Brahman). Wetness indicates he compassion. Softness indicates her motherhood.

Durvasa maharishi (Sage Durvasa) in his ‘Shakthi Mahimna’(SM) meditates on her sweet smelling hair in his heart chakra.

The idea behind these description is when Her hair can drive away ignorance (knowledge is considered as supreme in realising the Brahman), what Her total form can do for her devotees. These four sweet smelling flowers possibly mean the four deceptive components of anthakkaranam viz. mind, intellect, desire and ego. span>
