How is She worshiped?

The ancient sage Sri Adi Shankara best defines a Shakta’s ideal devotional aspiration:

“Let my every word be a prayer to You,
Every movement of my hands a ritual gesture to You,
Every step I take a circumambulation of Your image,
Every morsel I eat a rite of sacrifice to You,
Every time I lay down a prostration at Your feet;
Every personal pleasure and all else that I do,
Let it all be a form of worshiping You.”

From Verse 27 of Shankara’s Saundaryalahari, a hymn in praise of Lalitha Tripurasundari. The image to the right is a modern meditational image of Lalita in her adolescent aspect as Shodashi, seated upon the inert form of Her consort Shiva, while Her throne rests on the diminutive figures of the Hindu pantheon’s other major deities.
