Can anyone share the complete meaning of Sri Lalitha Sahasranama? I have come across word to word translations, but need a proper explanation.

  • Proper explanation is a tricky phrase. An explanation given by one translator, may not be appealing to everyone. Then your question will become opinion based, and is liable to be closed. Mar 13 '20 at 5:26
  • You can buy Sowbhagya Bhaskara if possible. I think u need to read commentary and u'll get that in the book.

There are a few commentaries available for Sri Lalitha Sahasranama, and Bhaskararaya's commentary has been published in English, translated by Sri Anantakrishna Sastri. This is a full commentary and not just word by word meaning.This is what I recommend.

You can order it online if you like. Search for "Bhaskararaya" and "Lalitha Sahasranama" and "Anantakrishna Sastry" to find a printed copy of the book. Originally published by Adyar libraries.
