Sri Vidya: Navavaranas in the Navama Avarana

Authors: Sai Venkatesh Balasubramanian
Comments: 15 Pages.

In this article, the masterpiece of Dikshitar and by extension all of Carnatic Music, namely the ninth Avarana Krithi of Sri Yantra worship in Aahiri Ragam is discussed in detail, diving deep into its philosophical and spiritual significance. The song is understood to the philosophies of all the nine Avaranas into a single composition, merging seamlessly the Vibhaktis, Yoginis, Avarana concepts and Devatas. Thus, it is concluded that this song is a pinnacle of Muthuswami Dikshitar, of Carnatic Music, of Navavarana Concept and of Sri Vidya itself, extolling Kamalambal by viewing the Mother Lalitha as the very Sat-Chit-Aanandam Parabrahman.
