Artist's Description

The Nityas or Eternities of Lalita represent the fifteen lunar days or tithis of the waxing Moon. The name Lalita means “She Who Plays”, and play (lila), refers to the creation and sustaining of the Universe.The full circle of the Nityas also represents the 21,600 breaths a human being takes in a full day and night.The Nityas are the The 15 Nityas are modifications of Lalita as red goddess with her three gunas and her five elements of ether, air, fire, water and earth. Each Nitya has her own mantra, yantra and group of energies (Shaktis).

The Upanishad says that the Human Body is to be conceived as the Sri Chakra, being the expression of one’s own self. The Body is to be regarded as not different from the atma, the entire cosmic system associated with the body is also the same . This manifestation rests on Time, Space and a combination of the two. The 15 lunar tithis, are to be regarded as identical with the fifteen Nityas . The sixteenth Kala called Sadakhya should be viewed as one with Lalita or the Supreme Deity Herself. Lalita or Tripurasundari is the 16th day or full moon, with her 15 digits. the totality of rays of the whole circle being 108.
This Mandala is my rendition of the Tvarita Nitya. Tvarita Nitya is the ninth Nitya (Eternity) in the cycle. She is called Tvarita (“Swift”) as She grants fruit to the sadhaka quickly. She is of auspicious form, in the first flush of youth, and dark in colour. She has 3 eyes and 4 hands and Her beautiful lotus- like face smiles gently.
