Kuruvindamanayah Tesam srenya kanata kotirena mandita
Her crown is resplendent with the shining rays of Kuruvinda jewels
Kuruvinda is a type of gem. This gem has special features. It is RED in color. It confers love, prosperity and devotion to Hari.
Hence, if one mediatates on her as wearing such gems his devotion will be increased.
Vasinyadi Vagdevis described up to this portion Sri Devi’s evolvement in general and begin now to describe Sri Devi in the manner of her creation.
According to Vedic statements, Sri Devi’s crown first appeared from the Holy Fire, illuminating all sides with great brilliance and then came out all other parts of the body down to the feet.
Kuruvinda gems are called PadmarAga, etc.. The Garuda Pr. In the Ratna chapter describes different kinds of rubies which can be obtained from different mines and rivers. “The Rubies obtained from Kuruvinda are to be preferred to those from Sphatika : they confer love, prosperity, and devotion to Hari”. The drift is, if one who meditates on Her as wearing such gems, his devotion will be increased.
Kuruvinda is a rare type of ruby, which is red in colour. This particular type of ruby is said to enhance love, wealth and devotion for Vishnu (Vishnu is her borther). These rubies adorn her crown. When She is meditated upon with this red crown, spirituality and prosperity will increase. In SL 42, it is said that all the 12 aadhithyas (dwadasa aadhithyas) adorn Her crown. SM 42 describes of Her crown.
Well..she is red and so is everything that she wears! She is resplendent and hopefully her resplendence will start to be visible in my life…it is visible in spurts in my life…hopefully from the resplendence in my life will be FULL GLOW…
