Soundarya Lahari - Part 87

Similar things can be said of the poetic traditions and the culture of classic literature. Or even of sculpture, painting or architecture. In all these,  our norms cannot be the standards of ordinaryworldly life. Works like Soundarylahari, which are simultaneously devotionally divine hymns and poetic excellences,  have to be approached in the right manner in order to obtain the fullest benefit from them.

Our minds have to be open and clean. The  Shri-vidyA  shAstras describe inesoterically romantic terms how Shiva, who is nothing but the Absolute Brahman, coupled with  KAmeshvari, the personification of the  icchA (Will) of Shiva, cause creation to happen. Such matters occur inSoundaryalahari also.
