THIS celebrated Kaula Stotra, which is now translated from the Sanskrit for the first time, is attributed to Mah?k?la Himself. One of the chief features of this Stotra is that it gives the mantroddh?ra of the Dakshina-K?lik?. It not only gives us the Dhy?na, Yantra, S?dhana and Svar?pa-varnan? of the Mah?dev?, but it also contains the chief Mantras of Dak?i?ak?lik?. The adjective "Tava manu-samuddhara?ajanu" qualifying "idam stotram" in ?loka 21 expressly states this fact. Among the various Mantras of Dak?i?? K?lik? the greatest is the "Vidy?-r?jñ?" consisting of 22 syllables (Dv?vi?s?k?ar?). This mantra gives the fullest and the truest symbol of the Svar?pa of Her. This mantra is contained in the first five ?lokas.
