About The Book

Bhaskarayaya, an authority on Srividya, flourished in the eighteenth century. He has commented on the Lalita-sahasranama, the Saundaryalahari, and the Bhavanopanishad etc. And written an independent work Varivasyarahasya also published by the Adyar Library.

He did much to dissuade devotees from following the vamacara rites and advocated the daksinamarga of Srividya worship.


We are happy to bring out the eighth reprint of the Lalita-sahasranama together with an English translation by R. Ananthakrishna Sastry of the famous commentary by Bhaskararaya. The text was revised on the basis of Bhaskararaya's commentary. The Lalita-sahasranama, considered to be part of the Brahmanda Purana and the Visnu-sahasranama, forming part of the Mahabharata, are among the most popular Stotra poems of the Sahasranama genre. Both were translated by R. Ananthakrishna Sastry, who was a member of the Adyar Library Staff. He translated into English Bhaskararaya's commentary also (published by the Theosophical Society in 1899); a revised edition came out in 1925.

Bhaskararaya belonged to Maharashtra; but he traveled throughout the country. His Bhasya on the Lalita-sahasranama was composed in A.D. 1930. His commentary is influenced by the Saundaryalahari ascribed to Samkaracarya. Bhaskararaya was an authority on Srividya. Devotion leads to the grace of the deity worshipped, and transforms the spiritual powers of divine names for the devotee's enlightenment. R. Ananthakrishna Sastry's Preface to the revised edition (1925) gives all necessary details about Bhaskararaya, and his Bhasya. It is hoped that this great work will help the resuscitation of our declined spirituality and restore to it its pristine purity.
