Sri Matre Namaha
Nijjaruna-prabha-poora-majjad-brahmanda-mandala – The twelfth name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.
Her red brilliance engulfs all Universes.
All created Universes are only Her Radiance.
Nijjah arunaprabhayah pura tasmin majjanti bramhandanam mandalani yasyah sah
Bathing all the universe in her own red radiance
She has rose-like radiance as described in contemplating in the Nyasas such as Saubagya.
Shivah shakthya yukto yadi bhavati shaktah prabhavitum
Na chedevam devo na khalu kusalah spanditumapi;
Atas tvam aradhyam Hari-Hara-Virinchadibhir api
Pranantum stotum vaa katham akrta-punyah prabhavati
Lord Shiva, only becomes able.
To do creation in this world along with Shakthi Without her,
Even an inch he cannot move,
And so how can, one who does not do good deeds,
Or one who does not sing your praise,
Become adequate to worship you
Oh , goddess mine,
Who is worshipped by the trinity.
Siva becomes capable of creating the Universe, only when united with Sakti (Thee), but otherwise (when not so joined with Thee), He is incapable of even a stir. How then could one. who has not acquired merit (punya in this and previous births) worship Thee or at least praise Thee, who is adored even by Vishnu, Siva Brahmã and others?
Nijjaruna-prabha-poora-majjad-brahmanda-mandala Her red-rose like complexion radiates the universe with red colour. From this nama starts the gross description of Lalitha. When physical description of a God is made, it is from foot to head and for Goddesses it is from head to foot. For Lalitha, the descriptions begin from her head. For Shiva the descriptions are both from his head as well as foot as He represents both Shiva and Shakthi (arthanari form-Shiva Shakthi combine in a single form). In panchdasi mantra (a supreme mantra of Devi containing 15 Sanskrit bijas) there are three parts or kootas, which will be discussed later in this series. Out of the three kootas, vakbhava koota is meditated upon Her head, which is in line with the tradition of describing her from head to foot. span>
