Maha Meru is the three-dimensional form of the Sri Chakra, the cosmic symbol of the Divine Mother. The Meru represents all of the secrets and mysteries of the universe. The conical shape of this Maha Meru resembles a pyramid with 9 subdivisions or phases called “Nava Avarna”. The top most point is called “Bindu” where Goddess Shakti abides along with her consort Lord Shiva (the ultimate union of cause and effect- creation).
It is said that the progression up the ‘steps’ or phases represents the stages towards enlightenment. The Meru is the concentrated form of a million Goddesses’ energy in one sacred form, which transmits energies for prosperity and good fortune
Significance of Maha Meru:
Made of Panchaloha, envisioned with the blessings of Sri Lalitha Parabattarika, this Sri Maha Meru has been sculpted to the precision. Sri Maha Meru represents the whole Universal Energy and the energy in every animate and inanimate object.
Ancient scriptures indicate that the presence of Sri Maha Meru bestows success, peace and happiness through health, wealth and harmony. Kumkuma archana (vermillion) with Lalitha Sahasranama or Lalitha Trishati on various points of Sri Mahameru brings all round success, prosperity and growth. Ideal for Srividya Upasana.
