Make sure that you cannot be disturbed in any manner for 15 minutes, dim all light, silence all sounds and then start the video with full concentration from you for best impact. Worship of That One can be at three levels: sthula (gross/physical), sukhsma (subtle/mental) or para (transcendent of both physical and mental). Many of the saints of India who reached the last level reveal it by their behaviour, which are passed down the generations as anecdotes such as: 'wherever he kept his feet, a lingam appeared'. In the scriptures too, such stories are found regularly, example: Hanuman's answer to Rama's question: Who are you?; and the various hymns of the Srimad Bhagavatham, Bhagavad Gita and other texts. The essence of this hymn comes from the Upanishads directly. It is hard-hitting and unpalatable to most and therefore, little known and even less appreciated. The honesty in this hymn is considered as being incomprehensible to the common mind and heart. Such comprehension is, however, neither required nor surprising in its absence: very few amongst us can even hope to attain the concentration, resolution and purity essential for mental worship. However, it is sometimes useful to know that there is one more step.

Thus the stotra of Sankaracarya towards Goddess Lakshmi was sacred, famous and popular known as Kanakadhara Stotra. Bhagavatpada Sankaracarya's Kanakadhara Stotra also called by him as Surarnadhara Stotra studded with Anugraha Bijakshar as aiming at Sri Lakshmi. Lakshmi in her manifestation is Arogya Lakshmi (giver of health), Keerti Lakshmi (bestower of name and fame), Santana Lakshmi (blesses children and continuing progeny), Vijaya Lakshmi (ensures victory in all the efforts), Dhana Lakshmi (Showers continuing wealth, Dhanya Lakshmi (restores abundant crops), Moksha Lakshmi (grants liberation), Sowbhagya Lakshmi (unending harmony and auspiciousness), Santa Lakshmi (giving peace). Thus she is apparently one in all the eight forms (Ashta Lakshmi) who also confers Ashta Siddhis, which are Anima, Mahima, Garima, Laghima, Prapti, Prakamya, Eesitva and Vasitva.for more details www.hindutara.com
Sringeri Math is a large, partly open structure situated right on the northern bank of the river Periyar or Poorna. Of the two major shrines within, one is dedicated to Sri Sankaracharya and the other to Goddess Saradamba, the main deity of Sringeri. The samadhi of Sri Sankara's mother Aryamba is also located here. A small shrine to Vinayaka, or Ganapati, is the scene of evening prayers, chanted to the rhythmic ringing of cymbals. The worship in these temples is done by Tamil or Kannada Smartha Brahmins and not by Nampoothiris. It celebrates a ten day festival during Navarathri and procession lead by a decorated temple chariot is conducted. Eminent artists present classical music concerts during the festival days. On Sankara Jayanthi, the birthday of Sankara a Vedic discourse and debate is conducted in which Vedic scholars from all over the world participates. Shankara was born in the Nambudiri Brahmin community to Sri Sivaguru and Aryamba in or near Kaladi in central Kerala. According to lore, it was after his parents, who had been childless for many years, prayed at the Vadakkunnathan temple, Thrissur that Sankara was born. His father died while Shankara was very young. Shankara's upanayana, the initiation into student life, was performed at the age of five. As a child, Shankara showed remarkable scholarship, mastering the four Vedas by the age of eight.
