In my study of Tirumantiram(the core text of Shaiva Siddhanta Sampradaya) I came across this shloka:
She is Pervasive Everywhere
She is Eternal Time embodied;
She pervades all thought and love;
She is united in Jiva inseparably;
She is Malini (Uma); Makuli (Kundalini);
(Who blows away the troubles of Her devotees like a tornado)
She is Protectress,
She with Protector indivisible stands.
Immediately,I remembered an almost similar mantra from Sri Devi Mahatmyam/Durga Saptashati/Chandi Patha.
देवि प्रपन्नार्तिहरे प्रसीद
प्रसीद मातर्जगतोऽखिलस्य ।
प्रसीद विश्वेश्वरि पाहि विश्वं
त्वमीश्वरी देवि चराचरस्य ॥१॥
Devi Prapanna-[A]arti-Hare Prasiida
Prasiida Maatar-Jagato-[A]khilasya |
Prasiida Vishveshvari Paahi Vishvam
Tvam-Iishvarii Devi Caraa-Carasya ||1||
1.1: (Salutations to the Divine Mother) O Devi, You Remove the Distress of those who Approach You and take Refuge in You; Please be Gracious,
1.2: Please be Gracious, O Mother of the Entire Universe,
1.3: Please be Gracious, O Goddess of the World, and Protect the World,
1.4: O Devi, You are the Goddess of all the Moving and Non-Moving Beings.
Detailed explanation from the net:
Could somebody explain the path of 'Prapanna'?How does one surrender to the Goddess and what are the steps/stages involved?The Devi Prapannārti Hare Mantra is Verse 3 from Chapter 11 of the Chaṇḍī Pāṭhaḥ.“Devi Prapannārti Hare” means, “Oh Goddess, you who remove the distress of all who take refuge in You.”
“Devi” means Goddess.
“Prapanna” refers to one who takes refuge in God, one who has surrendered.
“Arti” is suffering or distress, and “Hare” means removes or takes away.
When we take refuge in Her and trust Her completely, She removes all our suffering and distress.
“Prasīda Prasīda Mātar Jagato Khilasya”means, “Be pleased, be pleased, Oh Mother of the entire Perceivable World.”
Prasīda means “be pleased.”
“Māta” is Mother.
“Jagat” is the perceivable world, and “Akhila” is entire or all of.
“Prasīda Viśveśvari Pāhi Viśvaṃ” means, “Be pleased, Oh Supreme of the Universe; protect the universe.” “Prasīda” means be pleased.
“Viśveśvari” means Supreme of the Universe.
“Pāhi” is protect, and “viśvaṃ” is the Universe.
“Tvamīśvarī Devi Carācarasya” means, “ Oh Goddess, you are Supreme over all that moves and does not move.”
“Twamīśvarī” means You are Supreme.
“Devi” means Goddess.
“Carācarasya” means over all that moves and does not move (chara means that which moves, and achara is that which does not move).
P.S.As I keep reading Saiva literature it seems that Shakta tradition is an important/integral part of Shaivam as there is a great amount of information on Devi Uma Parvati.
