This post is about the song, Sri Chakra Raja Simhasaneshwari praising the mother Goddess. It is a ragamalika composed by Agastyar and the words are in Sanskrit and Tamil. The ragas include Senchurutti, Punnagavarali, Nadanamakriya and Sindhubhairavi. All four ragas are highly emotive in nature and used in light classical compositions. The practice of Sri Chakra involves the worship of the deity in the form of a diagram (nine inter-locking triangles) that represents both Shiva and Shakthi, the yin and yang of human nature.

Here are the lyrics of the song.
