Shri Chakra Nyasa

When one meditates that the virtuous one is in her heart, as bright as vermilion, it is said that she causes delusion, desire, subjugation and attraction - Vamakeshvarimatam IV, 42

The following lengthy and complex nyasa is translated from Nityotsava, a work based on the Kalpasutras, and written by Umanandanatha, a disciple of Bhaskararaya (Bhasurandandanatha), an 18th century devotee of Shri Vidya who wrote an extensive commentary on the Lalitasahasranama (Thousand Names of Lalita).

This last work is in English translation in an Adyar Library tradition. Bhaskararaya also wrote a work called Varivarahasya, also in English translation. (See bibliography).

The Shri Chakra Nyasa identifies the different elements of the Shri Yantra with different parts of the human organism. As the devotee touches the particular part of the body, she or he visualises the particular aspect and at the same time pronounces a mantra, linked to the particular matrikas or letters of the Sanskrit alphabet.

For a full understanding of this complex nyasa, look at the other sections on Shri Vidya on this web site, in particular, Lalita and the different mandalas of the yantra. The translation of the Bhavanopanishad, along with the prayoga or practical application, is also worth having at hand.
