Sri vidhya mantras -The main modes of worship in Sri Vidya are threefold: mantra, yantra and tantra. Mantra is the sacred sound current which is chanted to purify the mind, yantra is the sacred geometry which is associated with the different forms of God and Divine Mother and tantra encompasses any number of psychophysical techniques which transform the mind, body and spirit into a conduit for divinity to flow through.
Śrī Vidyā is the name of a Hindu religious system devoted to the goddess Lalitā Tripurasundarī or simply Tripurasundarī ('Beautiful Goddess of the Three Cities'). The Sanskrit word vidyā means knowledge or lore; so the literal translation of Śrī Vidyā is Knowledge of the Goddess Śrī.
In the theology of the Śrī Vidyā the goddess is supreme, transcending the cosmos which is a manifestion of her.
The goddess is worshiped in the form of a mystical diagram (Sanskrit: yantra) of nine intersecting triangles, called the śrīcakra that is the central icon of the tradition.
The name śrīvidyā is also used to refer to a specific mantra used in this tradition having fifteen syllables. This mantra is called the pañcadaśī; The Fifteen syllabled; and the pañcadaśākṣarī. She is also worshiped with a mantra of sixteen syllables called the ṣodaśākṣarī by some people. It must also be noted that the ultimate mantra in the system is "Shodashi" having 32 syllables. ...
The underlying principle of the whole practice is to realize the ultimate unity of the Devata, the mantra, the teacher and the practitioner.

There are many ways to explain this mantra. Whole bookshave been written on it. Below is a short examination of its syllables Relative to the first of the three sections of the mantra: Ka is desire or the creator. E is Maya or the power of illusion. I is Vishnu or the Divine ruling power. La is the power of bliss. Relative to the second section: Ha is space or breath- Sa is time. Ka again is creation. Ha is breath or spirit renewed in energy. La again is bliss. Relative to the third section: Sa is time as eternity or totality Ka is origin and also the unknown. La again is bliss. Hrim repeated three times brings about a triple transformation of our nature. Srim added at the end is the crowning glory and realisation http://www.srividyasadhana.com
