The counter for Shree MahaLakshmi Mantras [in "GoogleKeep"]...

As you know "Shree Lakshmi-Tantra" has an extremely ample set of Shree MahaLakshmi Mantras. 

For example, my current sadhana consists of 13 Mantras of Shreemati MahaLakshmi-Devi ("13" is my lucky number).  

You can use an ordinary notepad just striking out The Mantras you have recited, but I use "GoogleKeep" on my Android-phone, because it has great list system with striking out and copy! 

I can't reveal my Shree MahaLakshmi-Mantras, so the following example demonstrates Shree Durga-Mantras from श्री चामुण्डेश्वरी अष्टोत्तरशतनामावलिः  - "ShrI ChAmuNDEshvarI AShTottarashataNAmAvaliH" 

1. So, for example, there are 6 Mantras of Shreemati Durga-Devi in your sadhana. Use bulleted note and type The Mantras manually in the list. I strongly recommend to type with digits - 01. 02. and etc., please see the picture below:


2. After you repeat, let's say, Mantras 04 and 05 (108 times on Rudraksha beads), you just strike out points 04 and 05 from the list:


3. Embellishing the techique with "COPY". The great feature of "GoogleKeep" is "Copy", so you can copy you list of Mantras for example 7 times (for 7 subsequent days of the week). "COPY"-option is usually on the top-right (but can be on top-down on some phones):


4. This is the example of 9 squares with Shree Durga-Mantras, 1 square (set of Mantras) per day:

Winter Devotion...

ONE OF THE CHAPTERS OF "SHREE VARAHA-PURANA" IS DEDICATED TO BHAGAVAN SHREE NARAYANA WORSHIP IN VARIOUS SEASONS. THE FOLLOWING LACONIC EXCERPT IS ABOUT SUCH HARSH SEASON AS WINTER. 

Bhagavan Shree Varaha said to Shreemati Bhumi-Devi:

123.15: "I shall now tell You about the actions to be performed in winter by doing which the devotees attain supreme bliss". 

123.16: "Although tormented by cold winds, remaining firm in Devotion and with unchanging mind".

123.17-18: "Worshipping Me with the flowers available in winter, kneeling down on the floor and with folded hands, the following Mantra is to be uttered:

123.19: "O Lord of the worlds, You are winter, the snow is impenetrable and uncrossable. Lead me out of this samsara, O Lord of the three worlds''

Mantra in Sanskrit: 

शिशिरो भवान् धातरिमं लोकनाथ हिमम् दुस्तरं दुष्प्रवेशं कालं संसारान्मां तारयेमं धर्ता त्रिलोकनाथ । 

shishiro bhavAn dhAtarimaM lokanAtha himam dustaraM duShpraveshaM kAlaM saMsArAnmAM tArayemaM dhartA trilokanAtha | 

123.20: "He who performs worship with this Mantra in full devotion, attains supreme bliss".

Vaishnava-Mantra of the week and brilliant PanchaRatrika Tika of "OM devAya namaH" Mantra...

The Vaishnava Mantra of the week is Mantra NO. 12 from "108 Names of Bhagavan Shree VenkatEshwara" ("Shree Brahmanda-Purana"). 

Please don't miss the following more than brilliant Tika about Bhagavan Shree Vishnu being "The Hunter" from SADAGOPAN.ORG edition. This Tika is based on Shree PanchaRatra Vaishnava Agamas of course:
१२. ॐ देवाय नमः
12. OM devAya namaH

This is the 377th naamam in Sri Vishnu Sahasra nAmam (VSN). There are two other VSNs which are close to the 377th nAmam of DevAya Nama: Those are: DevabruthayaE nama: (494th name) and DevEsAya nama: (493rd name).

The meanings are however quite different from the 377th nAmam.

"DevAya nama:" salutes the Devan, the MaayAvi, who amuses Himself by binding the jeevans with the strings of His own MaayA (Moola prakruthi) and plays with them just like the

Мощь "Шри ПанчаРатры"...

Да, девчонки, не пропустите очень мощную и злую Тику на Мантру номер 12 из "108 Имен Бхагавана Шри ВенкатЕшвары" - http://vishnudut1926.blogspot.com/2017/02/vaishnava-mantra-of-week-and-brilliant.html

"Шри ПанчаРатра" не отличается особой эмоциональностью, поэтому Ачарьи Шри Рамануджа-Сампрадайи пишут о Бхагаване Шри Вишну как об Охотнике, который забавляется, связывая джив веревками кармы и васан. 

Звучит зло, но Бхагавана Шри Вишну здесь не в чем обвинять, так как Он является ПашуПати и играется с собственными амшами. Данная Сиддханта повторяет Сиддханту из Шайва-Агам, особенно Пашупата-Сиддханту, которая по многим причинам очень тесно связана с Шри ПанчаРатра-Сиддхантой. 

Да, и в этой же Тике есть безумно красивая цитата Шримати Андал-Деви (Шримати МахаЛакшми-Деви), звучит вот так: 
He (Bhagavan Shree Narayana) is the One, who goes ahead of 33 crores of dEvAs (Muppatthu mukkOdi amararkku munn senRu kappam tavikkukum Kali as Andal saluted in ThiruppAvai).
