Soundarya Lahari - Part 178


The regimen of worship for any deity has both ‘mantra’ and ‘Yantra’ associated with it. A certain sequence of sounds, repeated often and often gets the beatification of the presence of that devatA (divinity) prescribed by it. 

Just as each devatA has a physical form with limbs, so also each devatA has a form in a stringed sequence of sounds. It is called the sound-form, just as the recitation of mantras aims at the mantraform.
