This popular poem which used to be daily recited by thousands of ladies in Iyer homes in Tamil Nadu is a summary of Lalithopakhyanam found in Brahmanda Purana.
The Upakhyanam in the Purana is written in Sanskrit and the Iyer women considered Lalitha as their Goddess and someone composed a summary in the colloquial language used in households. The ladies used to learn it by heart and start singing it immediately after their bath.
They usually complete it by the time their house hold chores are done. Towards the beginning of twentieth centaury, this prayer became very much popular in the Palakkad iyer homes and did not get to the same level of popularity in the Tamil Iyer homes. Each stanza of the prayer ends with Shobanam repeated twice. Shobanam means a prayer that everything should turn out to be good. So they thought bad wishes should never be made for if it coincides with the saying of the devas, it would really happen.
The repeating of Shobanam was primarily for this. If it is told several times, some time it would coincide with the blessing of the devas and all good will happen to us. The devas were being troubled by asuras called Daruka and Soora who had a boon that they could only be killed by a son of Shiva. At that time Sathi the wife of Shiva had died and Lord Shiva was doing penance.
Sathi was born as the daughter of the Himalaya Mountain. So the devas requested Manmatha, the god of love to shoot an arrow on Lord Shiva. He woke up, opened his third eye and burnt Manmatha in to ashes. Later Viswakarma, the deva architect made a doll out of the ashes of Manmatha.
Lord Shiva not only gave him life but also gave him lot of boons. Lord Brahma gave him the name of Banda. Though initially this Bandasura was pious, later he waged a war against devas.
The devas found out only the Goddess who would marry Shiva can kill her.
Then as per the advice of Brahma they prayed. She lalithoapkhyanam Kameswara engoish handsome gentleman form of Lord Shiva and later she killed Bandasura and his huge army. After that listening to the plea of Rathi Devi wife of Manmatha she brought back the god of love to life. The Shobanam also gives detailed description of Sri Pura where the Goddess lived. This story is also told in Lalitha Sahasra Nama. We are singing this auspicious Lalithambal shobanam so that auspicious things will occur.
Let the pretty Ganapathi, Subrahmanya and Goddess Saraswathy come before us and protect us. The primeval Brahmin sage Agasthya who used to travel all over the world worshipped Jyothi Kamakshi in Kanchipuram and did penance. Lord Vishnu came before the husband of Lopa Mudhra holding conch, wheel and a book in his right hands. Let good things happen.
Let Good things happen. Sage Agasthya did sixteen types of hospitality with great devotion, saluted him with his entire body, and prayed him by Vedas and stood there.
What do you need?
I beg you to tell me a method by which the ordinary people are able to realize the divine in this Kali age. But since you have asked, I will tell you. Lalitnopakhyanam hear this with love and concentration. Let all people hear. That Hayagreeva saluted Adhi Parashakthi in his mind and the lotus like feet of Goddess Parvathi and agreed to tell all that sage Agasthya has asked. He then went along with Agasthya to his hermitage and there Agasthya lalithopakhyamam him to sit on a suitable seat and asked with lot of humility.
So please tell me the incarnation of the great Goddess in detail. The Parashakthi does not have either beginning or end and she is the basis of the entire world. It is simply not possible for any one to tell about all her shining forms, but I would try to tell you about her forms to the best of my knowledge.
First she came to help Lord Brahma when he meditated on her. Once upon a time when Devendra was taking a round the three worlds on his white elephant, he lost all his senses and due to his pride, did not bother to salute Lord Shiva or the Goddess Parvathi. So Shiva sent sage Durvasa to control his pride. And that Durvasa gave a garland in the hands of Indra. Due to his pride, Indra received the Garland and kept it on the head of the englissh.
And that elephant took it using his trunk and put it on the earth and trampled it and seeing this sage Durvasa became very angry and cursed Indra.

The Goddess told him, was this not your pride that made you do this. After the sage cursed and lalithopakhyanaj, Indra came back to his town and became scared on seeing ill omens and sent word to Bruhaspathi his teacher.
So please sir, tell me a way out. If you do a sinful act, it does not go away by doing redemption. It kalithopakhyanam not go away by some other act.
I am engpish you, the only antidote for sin is God Vishnu. If these are done out of ignorance depending on the caste of the sinner, there is redemption but for Brahmahathi killing of Brahmins there is no redemption in the Sasthras, Indra.
For the sin of theft I would tell you a story, Indra. A hunter who was a thief of a thief followed him and took away all the wealth that was buried.
So if you do the charity that I tell, you would be benefited. After a long tie when the hunter and huntress were about to die, the messengers of Yama as well as the messengers of Vishnu and Brahma came to take them to their lands. For the redemption for stolen wealth is charity.
So those who did have the wealth, due to the lalihopakhyanam of God lost their sins lalithopakhyajam got blessings. See Indra, those wealthy people attained salvation. In the fire sacrifice of King Yuvanaswa, devas fought with each other for the spoils and Lord Brahma portioned the offerings properly and distributed to them.
Duryodhana died because of Panchali. Why I told you lalithopakuyanam is because you have committed all these sins. The sins which do not have redemption get destroyed by the repetition of the. But please do not do such sins. You killed him without any justice due to the fact that his uncle lalithopakgyanam an Asura. And due to the murder of Viswaroopa, you got sin of Brahma hathya. And then you again got Brahma hathya by killing Vruthra the father of Viswaroopa who came in fire.
So you would suffer greatly. I am telling this based on that omens that I see. Indra, you do not have any sparkle in your world and the devas have become like people without food and the Brahmins of the world have become misers. I see lot of bad signs. When Guru was telling such stories to Indra, One asura king called Malaka, tapping on his chest lalithlpakhyanam along with asuras and surrounded Amarapathi city of Indra and drove away all the devas from that town.
The devas went to Indra and Brahma and told the news. Only Lord Vishnu can help you and so go and appeal to him. They all saluted the form of Vishnu who was lalithopakhyaanam on Adhi sesha and sang his praises and told him about the sufferings that all of them were undergoing. We are wandering here and there, hiding our real forms, and does this not bother you. After lalirhopakhyanam this, you bring all the asuras here. Then they will do the work and you only will drink the nectar.
Lallthopakhyanam it is only for you. You only will eat it. When the devas went and told the agreement of Lord Vishnu to the asuras who have lost their anger, hearing that and considering that it is true, they quickly collected the four herbs and put it in the ocean of milk together. Lord ShivaBrahma and the sages came to see this. When he saw that the Mandhara Mountain was not stable and was getting drowned in the water, Lord Vishnu became a tortoise and lifted the mountain up and he was also present on the top along with devas.
He was armed with his conch and wheel and decided lalifhopakhyanam fool the asuras and give nectar only to devas. Then due to the pain caused by the pulling, Vasuki vomited lalithopakhywnam burning poison and that started burning all those it touched.
And all people started running away from there. Engglish to avoid danger to his lalithopakhyaanam Lord Parameshwara drank all the poison. Then all, people sang the praise of Lord Shiva and recommenced the churning. The ladies as well as the baby moon came then. They were passed to Indra and Lord Shiva respectively. Lot of jewels an then came the pot of nectar.
Then arose from the sea, Danwanthri and afterwards Goddess Lakshmi. Lakshmi went along with Lakithopakhyanam. Those cheering asuras took the pot of nectar and started running away. Without knowing what to do Devas chased and caught them.
And seeing that a fight has broken out between them, Lord Vishnu, meditated on the Goddess of illusion and then he took the form of Mohini and enchanted the asuras.
