Soundarya Lahari - Part 149


The important thing to note here is what has not been said. It is not said that the mind and the five senses should submit themselves to the bow and arrows of ambaal. It is only said that they should dissolve themselves into the divine feet. Recall from shloka #4 that ‘She need not give abhaya and vara by Her hands; 

Her feet themselves are capable of doing that’. In this shloka #7, instead of the vara and abhaya mudrAs in the two hands, the bow and arrows are mentioned. They have been said to give the mind-control and the sense-control.
