Sri Bala Tripura Sundari


In the name “BALA TRIPURA SUNDARI” the word ‘Bala’, you can feel the sweetness when you utter this name.  Sri Bala’s worship is a stepping stone to Sri Vidhya Upasana. Tripura rahasyam, a treatise on Saktham, highlights that goddess Maha Tripura sundari is indulgent in child-play as she portrays herself in the form of a little girl.

In Lalitha Sahasranamam both “bala”(965 mantra) and “leela vinodhini” (966th mantra) reconfirms the child status of the para brahma swarupini. The divine play of the goddess is none other than the triple functions of creation, preservation and destruction of the prapancham(world).  Sri Bala’s story is enunciated in “lalithopakyanam” and illustrated as a youthful princess of a kingdom as an ever-green 9 year old.

Why Sri Bala is worshipped as a child deity?

Because, with children we can be close. We tend to take liberty with them. Our affection is abundant with children. With Bala, the child we can open our heart, do the “sweet talk” with her and indulge in her innocence. The more you look at her as the sweet child, the more your heart abounds with joy. You become a child yourself and turn out to be childish.

What could a child do? A question often arises in our mind. In our puranas, surapadman asked Balamurugan what he could do and met his fatel end. Lord Krishna, in his child form destroyed kakasuran and boodhana. In Lalitha Sahasranamam, it was the child Bala, who annihilated the 30 sons of panda asura in the 74th line “pandaputhra vadod yukta, Bala Vikrama Nandita” So we should not take children as playful or easygoing types because a child, till its desired task is accomplished, doesn’t give up.

Sri Bala Tripura Sundari’s Moolamantram:

“Aiym Kleem Sow
Sow, Kleem, Aiym
Aiym, Kleem, Sow”

Meaning :

Sri Bala Tripura Sundari’s moola manthram(basic hymns) is the panacea to all modern worldly problems. It is simple and has 3 words. The first word Aiym is in lieu of goddess Saraswathi or learning, the 2nd word “Kleem” in lieu of Maha kali or magnetic appeal and the 3rd word “Sow” in lieu of Sri Lalitha Parameswari or prosperity.

When you chant the moola manthram( the moolamanthram should get from a Guru) Sri Bala Tripura Sundari is around you. When you recite her name “Bala” she is at your beck and call instantly with you. Without participating in Sri Bala’s ritual, Sri vidhya upasana doesn’t reach its culmination. The chanting of this moola manthra bring innate power, popularity and peace of mind.
