Sri Matre Namaha

Karpooravitikamodha-samakarshi-digandara – The twenty sixth name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.

Karpurah vitikayah amodam samkarsanti ya disah taevantaram yasyah sa

The fragrance from the betel leaves she chews attracts the deities of the quarters

Karpuravitikamodena samakarsini digantarani yasyah sa

By the fragrance of whose betel leaves the quarters have become fragrant.

Karpooravitika is a combination of fragrant ingredients, used to chew along with the betel leaves. The ingredients used are – saffron, cardamom, clove, camphor, kasthuri, nutmeg and mace or myristica fragrans or jaddhi pathiri. The ingredients are finely powdered and mixed with powdered sugar candy. This karpooravitika powder when used with betel leaves for chewing gives immense fragrance and delicious taste). When She chews this, it provides fragrance to the entire universe. Refer nama 559 also. In Lalitha trisadhi ( a verse containing 300 namas based on panchadasi mantra) nama 14 also has the same meaning. Possibly this could mean that She attracts ignorant men by this fragrance. Knowledgeable men can reach her by devotion whereas ignorant men require some sort of inducement to obtain her grace. This inducement is the fragrance mentioned here.
