Soundarya Lahari - Part 230


Goddess KAmeshvarI has herself the name ‘aruNA’. Recall Her dhyAna-shloka: ‘aruNAM karuNA-tarangitAkshhIM’. Here our Acharya is actually invoking the eight armed Goddess: with bow, arrow, noose and spear (that go with KAmeshvarI) in four of the hands and with varam, abhayam, aksha-mAlA and book (that go with Sarasvati) in the other four hands. 

This is the aruNa-Sarasvati with eight hands, talked about by our elders.
