    Can someone guide me with the Nyasa rite, done before chanting the Lalita Sahasranama?
    Being from Europe with no Indian roots I'm completely at a loss with this, but I wouldn't want to skip the Nyasa because I know it's important.

    Don't know much about that, but this could help:



    Anga-Nyasa and Kara Nyasa before Starting vishnu Sahasranama - Meaning | Facebook

    (Amrutaan shoodbhavo bhurati beejam: IMHO, that may relate to purification of our thoughts). There are a few knowledgeable Vaishnavas in the forum. And I am sure, they will be able to help you.)

    Nyasa literally means trust, deposit - to put your trust faith in something.

    IMHO, Nyasa is establishing the deity metqaphorically in one's own body.
