Panchatanmatrasayaka – Pancha Tanmatra Sayaka   21 comments

Sri Matre Namaha

Panchatanmatrasayaka – The eleventh name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.

Pancha Tanmatrani eva sayaka yasya saShe who is holding the arrows of the five subtle elements

The five subtle elements are her five arrows, and they are rasa (taste), rupa(form), sabda (sound), sparsa (touch) and gandha (smell).

The earlier nama spoke about the bow and this nama talks about the arrows. She has five arrows. These five arrows are of flowers. The five represent five subtle elements- tanmatras Shabda, Sparsha, Rupa, Rasa, Gandha. These five flowers or arrows are described differently in various tantra sastas. These five flowers are lotus flower, raktakairava flower, kalhara flower, indivara flower and flowers of mango tree. These five flowers represent excitement, madness, confusion, stimulation and destruction. The arrows are used in wars targeting the enemies. Lalitha targets Her devotees with these arrows to destroy the illusion or maya as the five subtle elements are associated with maya. This is her right lower hand. Varahi devi is represented by this hand. 

The names of the Lalita Sahasranama 8- 11 is significant since it has Ayudhamantras.

Ragasva of Ragasvarupapasadya can be split as Ra+aga+sva where AGA means Sthanu which is Siva and Ha is Siva’s letter.

The lexicon declares that Ha means Siva, Sthanu and the Sky. Thereafter Sva stands of i with the bindu. So the subtle form of the pasa is the bija formed by these three letters ra, ha and i.

Ra always follows Ha and with i it becomes HRIM

Similarly Krodhakara can be split into Kro + dha+ akrodha and word kara is connected to each unit of the compound.

Anukusa would be Anusvara. And the bija mantra would be Krom, dham and am.

In Manorupeksukondanda Manas means dham as Kosa describes , tha means the lord of the right nostril and mind and Kodanda is anusvara as declared by the lexicon. So dham would be danurbijam.

Thus from 8-11 we can derive dam, ram, kam, lam, yam, sam, vam and am, tim, um.

These letters when combined according to the rule give bija of the mantras of weapon. The five banabijas (arrow-mantras) are dram, drim, klim, blum and sah.

The namas 8,9,10 and 11 have secret bija aksharas. For example, 8th nama has “Hrim” bijam which is known as maya bijam. The 8th nama begins with “ragaswa” which is formed of ra+aga+swa. Aga means Shiva. The bija for Shiva is “Haam”. This is to be taken as “ha”. The next is ra and this is to be taken as it is. Swa means the letter “im” with a bindu on the top. The bija Hrim is thus formed by ha+ra+im. When pronounced together it is pronounced as “Hrim”. Like this in other three namas also such bijakasharas are hidden. That is why Lalitha Sahasranamam is considered on par with Vedas. Most importantly, this sahasranamam should not be recited with raga or swara (both used in singing)

Well….this is a rather complicated name and the derivations of bija mantras are very interesting!I know that I have been taking her for granted too…and she has been keeping me on a leash (her noose!) I have never doubted her presence in MY life. She has been there in many forms. My friend Mathy always said, “you do not know how lucky you are!” so true those words are..I never was at a loss for people in my life, she always sent the right person the right time…I should have the jnana to see her in these people…Hope that I realize that every time.She has been kind, caring, loyal and has never given up on me…so could I ask for a better friend and mother? Well, the fact that she has blessed me with so many things that in itself shows her presence….I believe in you and I know you won’t give up on me!
