Daily parayanam of Vishnu Sahasranama and Lalita Sahasranama in the evenings after lighting the lamp was a ritual followed by many families even a couple of generations ago.
Lalita Sahasranama is said to have been composed by the eight vaag devis (Vasini, Kameshvari, Aruna, Vimala, Jayani, Modini, Sarveshvari, and Kaulini) upon the command of the goddess Lalita herself.
The Goddess is seen in a seated posture and whenever a devotee prays to Her , She is said to bless his/her soul. In fact, reading Lalitha Sahasrananmam is considered a benefit of good karma done by one in previous births. The prayer is said to have been authored by celestial women
Chanting Lalitha Sahasranamam on full moon day will protect from diseases and will also ensure long Life. Chanting this stotram helps you to ward off the ill effects caused due to planetary transition. For the blessing of a child, a woman can chant these 1000 names and offer butter to the Divine Mother.
