SIVA PANCHAKSHARI MANTRA

Knowing its efficacy, Mother Gouri desired to learn it from her Lord itself. But she forgot that all are not fit to receive, much less aspire or practice it; only those endowed with Sattvic nature are eligible, and they alone can practice - repeating it fifty lacs of times with utmost concentration. Lord Siva tried to convince of her ineligibility - she was of Rajasic nature out and out, and proud of her blooming beauty and tansitory charms. So undeserving. When her adamancy reached the peak, Lord Siva cursed her to turn ugly and wander on earth with every conceivable misery attending on her. Her tearful prayers for redemption melted the All-merciful Lord and directed her to go to Kalahasti for doing penance, and only then she would be fit to receive that all potent mantra.

Accordingly, Mother Gouri descended, and with the timely guidance of Narada and Vinayaka reached Kalahasti. Giving up her divine body, she started penance in the earthly mortal frame. Before commencing, she bade her divine aspect.
