Sri Matre Namaha
Nija-sallapa-madurya-vinirbhartsita-kachabi – The twenty seventh name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.
nijaysa santapsaya madhuryena-visiya nihisena bhartsita kacchapi (vina) yaya sa
The melody of whose words put to shame the kacchapi (i.e., vina of Sarasvati)
The AmrK says: The vina of Visvavasu is named Brhati, that of Tumburu, Kalavati, that of Narada, Mahati and that of Sarasvati Kacchapi
The desire for hearing the vina is due to the sweet melody coming out indistinctly from the svaras, sadja, etc., though there is no clear reception of the sound of the letters. Kacchapi, being the vina of Sarasvati, speaks like the parrot and the resembles cuckoo speech which is a little distinct, along with melody. But no doubt, with distinct utterance the sweeter melody of her words excels all musical instruments.
Saraswathi’s veena (veena is musical instrument with strings) is called kachabi. It produces a superb melody, that too in the hands of Saraswathi devi, the goddess for fine arts, the music was very melodious. The voice of Lalitha is more melodious than Saraswathi’s veena. SL 66: Saraswathi was playing on her veena, the triumphs of Shiva; Lalitha was enjoying the melody coming out of the strings of kachabi, the veena of Saraswathi. Lalitha was so pleased with the melody, she said ‘well done’. Lalitha’s voice was so melodious, Sarawathi closed her veena out of shame. The same explanation given to the earlier nama is applicable here too. She attracts the ignorant by the melody of her voice.
