Lalitha Navarathna Malai Lyrics: Lalitha Navarathna Malai is a devotional hymn, composed by sage Agathiyar [Agastya]. At one time, Hayagriva, who had imparted many teachings to Agathiyar, extolled the greatness of Lalitha Sahasranama. When Agathiyar inquired about the significance of that hymn, Hayagriva explained the sacred path leading to the abode of the Divine Mother.
