पृष्ठभागोऽयं यन्त्रेण केनचित् काले काले मार्जयित्वा यथास्रोतः परिवर्तयिष्यते। तेन मा भूदत्र शोधनसम्भ्रमः। सज्जनैः मूलमेव शोध्यताम्।
--श्रीचक्र? Nine sections are dis- tinguished. In the ninth पर्व (section) are ten presiding deities--the siddhi devis. In a part of this पर्व were stationed the eight शक्तिस्. Above them were the ten मुदा- devis or प्रकटशक्तिस्. In the eighth पर्व there were six- teen शक्तिस् named Guptas. In the seventh पर्व were six गुप्ततरास् with sugarcane bow, flower dart and flower balls. In the sixth पर्व were the twelve आज्ञाशक्तिस्. In the fifth were ten कुलोत्तीर्ण s4aktis. In the fourth were ten Nigar- [page१-572+ ३६] bhayogini शक्तिस्. In the third were the eight Rahasya- yogini शक्तिस्. In the second were her favourites three in number. Where this was, there was Geyaratha and where the latter was, there was किरिचक्र। These three looked like the three worlds or like the three mountains namely the Meru, Mandara and the Vindhyas. ललिता was चक्रराज. There were six charioteers. Ten yojanas in length, covered by an umbrella of that height as indication of ललिता's साम्- राज्यम्.
