Shivananda Vijayalakshmi left for Shripuram

Received the news that Smt. Shivananda Vijayalakshmi, a great devotee of Swami Shivananda and a renowned Upanyasaki and Srividyopasaki attained the lotus feet of Sri Mahatripurasundari yesterday. Mami lived in Madurai, the dwadashanta kshetram, devoting every minute of her life to the sanatana dharma.

Can anyone forget the Soul-stirring Lalita Sahasranamam by her ? Being a Srividya upasaki herself, this is one of her masterpieces. The audio released in 1960s still holds the fort, running in each and every home. She is the guru for almost 90% of us to learn Lalitha Sahasranamam (through her cassette)...

A few occasions I spent with her was more valuable than several hours of study. We pray to the Empress Lalita Parameshwari to grant solace to the grieving family and the sishyas
