Sri Matre Namaha
Mandasmita-prabhapoora-majjatkamesha-maanasa – The twenty eigth name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.
mandam yet smitam tasya prabhapure majjat kamesvarasya manasam yasya sa
In the beautiful flow of whose smile the mind of Kamesvara is drowned.
Smita means smile and mandasmita means a special smile. Kamesha is Shiva. When Lalitha is sitting on the left thigh of Shiva, they are known as Kameshwarar and Kameshwari. This form is different from their arthanari form. Shiva is immersed in that beautiful special smile of Lalitha. Kama also means bindu, a dot. Bindu is a part of kamakala bija (eem). This bija has two bindus, each representing the sun and the moon. The bindu refers to ego. Kama and kala both mean desire. Mind is the cause for desire. When the mind of Shiva himself is influenced by the smile of Kameshwari, it only speaks about Her glory. She attracts ignorant men by her smile.
The word Kama means bindu which is the part of the body of Kamakala and which is the sun termed as fire. Kala meaning moon. The Kmkl V says: ” Bindu is the form of ahamkara; the sun is the form of pair (kama and kala) of equal essence. Kama means that which is desired and Kala means the moon.
The two bindus Kama and Kala are manifested as the fire and the moon.
According to Mimasakas , the mind is omnipresent, so when it is said that the mind is drowned it means that the glory of the goddess is unlimited.
