Dikshitar’s Kamalaambaam bhajare begins to delve into the Yogic aspect of Srichakra puja. In a wonderful contrast to his intensity, Venkata Kavi’s Bhajasva shree, in Nadanamakriya, buries esoteric brilliance in the beauty of the goddess.

Dikshitar’a Kamalaambaam bhajare begins to delve into the Yogic aspect of Srichakra puja. Esoteric descriptions are sandwiched by devotional odes. He calls her the consort of Paramashiva, the secret Yogini Shakti, the dispeller of sorrows, and who is the embodiment of the very essence of Brahmavidya. The enjoyer of the soul-bliss called Kaivalya, who is continuously auspicious, who bears the name Katyayani, who is Bhumitatva and other tatvas embodied in essence, who is Sri Kamalambika!!!

In a wonderful contrast to Dikshitar’s intensity, Venkata Kavi’s Bhajasva shree, set in Nadanamakriya, buries esotery in the beauty of the goddess. He says, You are the flow of bliss, which is like heavenly nectar. You always grant the devotee's desires. You, the beloved of Siva, hold the noose and the goad in your left hand(s); your glance is like the cooling rays of moonlight. You are worshipped even by the Trimurti. You have given us the Veda and Vedanta. You delight in the scriptures. You are adorned with golden necklaces, bracelets and crown.
