There are many books which provide meanings for Lalitâ Sahasranâma in English. Then what is the specialty of this book? This is not just another book. Below is explained in a nutshell, how different this book is and the research which has gone into this book.

It is very difficult to understand the Paribhâshâ Mandalam, which is written to split the verses and get the 1000 names properly. Further, though the earlier verses, Salâkshara Sûtras are not available at present, the available one or two Sûtras have been explained in simple language in this book – this is a new aspect. Such an elaborate discussion is just enough to describe how carefully our ancestors have accessed in the matter of splitting these names from the verses.
