The Sri Lalita Sahasranama is an ancient hymn of 1000 individual mantras describing various aspects of the Divine Mother. Amma, the hugging saint of India, says "Worship using the Lalita Sahasranama is of the utmost value for spiritual growth and material prosperity when chanted daily with devotion. The worship of the Divine Mother is ideal for enhancing good qualities such as love, compassion, forbearance and courage." In Sanatana Dharma (the Eternal Religion of India), the Divine Mother has been called Devi, Kali and Lalita. She is Jagadamba, or Mother of the World. Her love for all is supreme. She constantly showers upon humanity Her love and grace, and She is known for Her all-giving nature. Her goal is to have humans return to the ultimate state of oneness with Her - for each to realize his true self. What can humans offer such a Mother who loves them, takes care of them and gives them Her bounty? Praising such a Mother and offering Her gratitude is the essence of Sri Lalita Sahasranama. Offer Her this chocolate-- whose chemical properties also call forth love, bliss and well-being -- placing you in a receptive mode for all the Divine Mother offers.
