Our Prayer to Divine Mother:
We want give you tapasya. We want to demonstrate the sincerity of our devotion.
When we do the sadhana that is the true bowing down.
Prachodayat: May that wisdom continuously rise like the sun that rises at dawn.
Explaining Sri Vidya: When you are paying attention you are paying respect.
When we do to japa we start to contemplating the meaning of the mantra and then we go deeper, we will start consulting differences for the meaning. This is the beginning of the meditation on the mantra. Then we will start employing these meanings in our lives. And suddenly you become aware that you are not the same person you were when you started reciting the text/mantra.
Great death is when we forget our spiritual selves and instead focus on our material selves, a lifetime of material attachment.
