Story of the Soundarya Lahari of Adi Shankaracharya

Soundarya Lahari, composed by Adi Shankaracarya, praises the beauty and grace of Mother Goddess Shakti – the feminine primordial cosmic energy. There is an interesting story, which narrates how the Soundarya Lahari came to be composed by Adi Shankaracharya.

Legend has it that Soundarya Lahari book was given to Adi Shankara by Shiva. But Nandi, the divine bull and vehicle of Shiva, was in a playful mood and he snatched the book from Adi Shankaracharya.

When Adi Shankaracharaya demanded the book be returned, Nandi tore it into two halves. On was kept by him and the other half was returned to the Saint.

Adi Shankara went back to Shiva and told him what had happened.

Shiva asked him to write the second half. Adi Shankaracharya then wrote the second half and it is today known as Soundarya Lahari.

The first half, comprising 41 shlokas, which Nandi gave to the Guru is considered to be the Anandalahari.

Know the Fear – Tips to Overcome Fear

What is stopping us from facing our life problems is fear.

Fear of failure. Fear of future or uncertainty and Fear of being rejected Fear stops us from connecting with people. We cannot be happy in the present because we fear the future. Fear is the reason why postpone many things that are dear to us. We drag our feet due to fear. Another fear that causes a lifelong problem is the thought that I am not good enough.

We run away from all these fears. We never want to face them. As we do not want to face them, we make excuses. We blame others. We cause distractions.

Running away from fear is never effective and is not a solution. It only makes matters worse.

How to overcome fear? Face the fear. Be honest and admit that we have fears. Feel it and go through the stress, pain, and discomfort it creates. Once you are able to understand the damage, it can cause; you should find ways to mitigate it. You should come up with solutions, as you are the best judge of what you are going through.
