I have already written about a strange but significant dream which I saw a few days back. I have also written about the number of ways in which that dream had links with Goddess Lalita in my post Kundalini Experiences – part 8. But what’s really amazing is that, ever so often, more and more links between my dream and Goddess Lalita keep popping in my way…
Today I was reading about the meanings of the Sanskrit verses in the sacred text of Goddess Lalita – the Lalita Sahasranama, when I came across this word: ‘Chidagnikundasambhutha’ – referring to the origin of Devi Lalita.
‘Chidagnikundasambhutha’ means – Born from the Pit of the Fire of Consciousness.

What makes this word special for me is that in my dream, I was offering the Red Sari to the Goddess (surprisingly, Goddess Lalita is actually described as wearing a red sari in the scriptures) but I was making the offering in a pit! Yes that’s right – not in a temple, not before a statue, but in a large pit in the ground…
“In my dream, I saw myself descending, from what seemed like a raised platform or cliff, onto a ground, which had many large pits. I then proceeded to offer a red sari (a traditional women’s wear for Hindus) with a golden border and small golden floral prints, into one of those pits in that ground. Even though I was offering the sari into a pit I was actually meaning to offer that sari to the ‘Devi’ (Goddess) or ‘Shakti’.” – Kundalini Experiences – part 8
…and all this while, I was wondering whether my act of offering the Red Sari in a pit (when I actually meant to offer it to the Goddess), made any sense at all!
…and boom, just like that I find the missing link ….and it totally makes a lot of sense now!
How cool is that? 🙂
