Lalitā – The Resplendant One
Parikṣīṇā madhye pariṇata-śarac-candra-vadanā |
Dhanur bāṇān pāśam sṛṇim api dadhānā karatalaiḥ
Purastād āstām naḥ pura-mathitur āho-puruṣikā || 7 ||
– Lalitā Sahasranāma
A slender waist girdled with jingling bells, frame slightly bent by the weight of full breasts, like the frontal lobes of a baby elephant, face blooming like the autumnal full moon, Thou who art the power of Śiva, please manifest Thy Presence before us, holding the bow, arrows, noose and goad in your hand.
