Sri Matre Namaha

Chaturbahusamanvita – The seventh name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.

This name can be split into parts, Chatuhu + Bahu + Samanvita

Chatuhu : means four (number 4)

Bahu : means the hand/arm.

Samanvita : means to have or to be withThe complete meaning is, the one who has four hands.

This name is towards the physical appearance of the Goddess. She is endowed with four arms.

Nothing specialty is there for having four arms. Because there are so many deities and also demons are there with four arms, ten arms, twenty arms and also a thousand arms. But here the holy mother is called “chaturbAhu samanvitA”. Every one knows about the unlimited kindness of the mother. If she starts giving by herself, there will neither be any end nor any intermission.

The bahUs of her are very cleaver (chaturAs) hence all of them constantly holding one each with pAsa, ankusa, Dhanush and bAnAs, with an idea that the mother will not have any choice otherwise. It is just like the nandi always guarding alertfully in front of Siva bhagavan, to prevent undeserved devotees from snatching the undesirable boons from the ubbu linga. But of course, the tiny look of the paradEvata , from a narrow corner of her eyelid is enough, by which all the gods will come running to attend at those devotees and instantly fulfill all their desires.

Not only that, the word “bAhu” is derived from ‘bahu’ i.e., “Bahutwa AkAN^xayA prabhavati iti bAhuhu”. “sO.akAmayata bahusyAm prajAyEyuhu” The paramAtma has desired for some thing else. That is enough for the mother chitChakti to inaugurate her presence in the form of “Om” the first manifestation in the space, which actually was never there, but she has falsely created some space, only within the all pervading paramAtma him self.

The pranavA`s appearance was in both visible and audible form. It is just like, when two firestones strike with each other, we find a spark of light and a chuck like sound both at a time. In the same way, the pranava also appeared with its four limbs, a-u-m as bindu and artha chandra as the nAdha).

Just as the pranava is a combination of four KhandAs, The panchadasi mahA mantra also, which is nothing else but the extension of pranava, is said to have four KhandAs (limbs=bAhUs). These bAhUs unlike the material gross bAhUs, will ceaselessly endowing boons to the sAdhakas independently by themselves. Their actions are not controlled even by the paradEvata.

In all the four the first limb is called “vAgbhava” is enough to give vAk siddhi, by which one becomes most attractive with his good speech and every one will humbly obey his word unhesitatingly. what ever he says, it always become true.

The second one is “kAmarAja” which will be securing every thing what ever are the needs and what ever is desired by the devotee. So many people are attracted to him and flock around to hear what he is saying.

The third one is “Sakthi kuta” by which all the puruShArthAs (Dharma, artha, kAma and mOxa) would become an easy walk for him to accomplish.

Finally the remaining limb nAdA will become the bestowal of the total liberation without any chance for rebirth. Then there will be no difference between the original paramAtma and him self.

“sarvamAtmaivAbhUt kEna kam pasyEt”

The physical appearance of Lalitha begins here. She has four arms. These four arms represent her ministers, through whom she administers. These devis who assist Her are described in the next four namas.
