Can we recite Lalita Sahasranaam before the altar of Durga?
Absolutely. There is no scripture that the Gods and Goddesses do not like to hear!
Swamiji talks about chanting the 300 names of Lalita as greater and fruitful than Her 1000 names. Does this mean the thousand names are not as powerful as the 300 names? Or has Swamiji made it easier for those who don’t have time to chant 1000 names?
No, verse 103 specifically states that the recitation of the 300 names is 10 million times more fruitful than the 1,000 names. And if we recite them both, we receive 110% of the fruits of sadhana.
