A compilation of divine stotrams conceived by Adi Shankaracharya in a book translated in Malayalam
The "Soundarya Lahari" is divided into two parts: the first part of Ananda Lahari consists of the first 41 verses, while the second part of Soundarya Lahari comprises the remaining 59 verses, totally making it a 100 verses. The entire scripture narrates the waves of happiness in describing Sri Lalithambika, her beauty, her grace and her great unparallelled feats as the Mother of the universe. Every sloka when recited with devotion unlocks a hidden benefit and turns as a blessing of Sri Lalitha Tripurasundari.
The "Shivananda Lahari" consists of 41 verses (stotras) that praise and invoke the blessings of Lord Shiva. In these verses, Adi Shankaracharya beautifully describes the various attributes, forms, and manifestations of Lord Shiva and expresses deep devotion to the deity.
Sri Tripura Sundari Stotram is dedicated to Goddess Lalitha. This divine stotram is used to appease Goddess Shodashi (also known as Lalitha Tripura Sundari). As the name suggests Goddess Shodashi is the most beautiful in all three worlds. In Dasha Mahavidya, She represents Goddess Parvati or also known as Tantric Parvati. Goddess Shodashi is also known as Lalita and Rajarajeshwari which means "the one who plays" and "queen of queens" respectively. As Shodashi, Tripura sundari is represented as a sixteen-year-old girl, and is believed to embody sixteen types of desire.
