Sri Lalita Tripurasundari Devi is the 6th day Alankaram in Vijayawada Dasara Navaratri 2020, 22 October. During Dasara Sharan Navaratri of Kanakadurga Temple, each day one of the forms of Goddess Durga is worshipped.
Kanakadurga Mata is decorated in the form of Sri Lalitatripura Sundari Devi and worshipped. This Shashti Navratri falls on Ashwayuja Shukla Paksha Shashti tithi.
Goddess Lalita or Lalitha Tripura Sundari devi and the red Goddess, is one of the most powerful manifestations of Goddess Shakti. Goddess Shakti incarnated as Lalita to demolish the demon called Bhandasura. Bhandasura was a demon formed from the ashes of Manmadha or Kama deva, the God of Love and seduction.
Goddess Lalita represents the Panchabhuta (five basic elements) of the Universe. Panchabhutas are – air, water, fire, earth and space (Vayu, Jala, Agni, Bhumi and Akasha). Lalitha Devi is also associated with Sri Chakra, the ultimate Chakra representing the origin and existence of the universe.
The Alankarams of Navratri puja differs from year to year depending on the Nakshatras and Temple’s Agama Shasthra.
