1. 1

    श्री देव्युवाच । श्रुतं देव मया सर्व रुद्रयामलसम्भवम् । त्रिकभेदमशेषेण सारात्सारविभागशः ॥ १ ॥

    Sri Devi says: O Deva, I have heard in detail all that has been revealed through the union of Rudra and his shakti or what has emerged from the Rudrayamala Tantra. I have also understood Trika, or the three divisions of Shakti, which forms the quintessence of all knowledge.
