Sri Shyamala Dandakam – Manikya Veena

Shyamala dandakam is a revered stotram composed on mother goddess Shyamala Devi praising her divine form and her bestowing nature on a devotee.

This Shyamala Dandakam was initially composed in Sanskrit by the great poet Kalidas in a literary style called Dandakam, where the stotram, although poetry, still resembles prose.

Goddess Shyamala devi is represented as three-eyed, with eight arms, a blue-coloured body, seated on a lotus, and carrying Veena, similar to Goddess Saraswati. This Goddess is also called by other names like Raja Shyamala and Matangi.

As described in the Lalitha Sahasranamam Lyrics, Shyamala Devi is represented as the Maha Mantrini or the Prime minister in the court of Sri Lalith Tripurasundari.

She is the Goddess of speech, music, dance, and other Arts. It is, thus, famous that children at a young age and knowledge seekers learn to recite Shyamal dandakam or atleast the first three stanzas, to improve their learning curve and experience the divine grace of Shyamala Devi.

The recitation of Shyamala dandakam lyrics, especially during Shyamala Navaratri’s, is known to have immense spiritual significance as these days are dedicated to Goddess Shyamala.
