Soundarya Lahari - Part 309


The first nIrAjana talks about the worship by Vishnu, BrahmA and Indra. It is significant that this listing of
the divines begins with Vishnu, thus indicating that we are talking about the nIrAjana meant as an offering of the Sustenance function. 

The second nIrAjana (#30) corresponds to the Dissolution function is already built into the very words ‘the conflagration of Cosmic Dissolution proves only to be the nIrAjana’ (‘mahA-samvartAgnir-viracayati nIrAjanavidhiM’).
