Soundarya Lahari - Part 155


There is a Tamil stotra called abhirAmi-antAdi. This is a stotra by a great devotee  abhirAmi-bhattar  on the Goddess known by the name of abhirAmi in TirukkaDavUr. The form of abhirAmi has four hands with
vara and  abhaya in the two forehands and lotus and bead-necklace (aksha-mAlA) in the other two hands. 

The stotra has 100 verses. Right in the second verse the author describes how the Goddess gave darshan to him, as having in Her four hands, the bow, the arrows, the noose and the goad. In the last verse of his poem he gives the same description of the Goddess.
