Lalita Sahasranama # 230
1) mahayagah sa eva kramah - mahayagakramah, tena aradhya
She who is properly worshipped by the method of mahayaga.
The word mahayaga is a Tantric term. It means the worship of sixty-four yoginis by giving them oblations to them. These sixty -four yoginis are considered to be the part of Brahmi, etc.
Krama = worshipping sixty four yoginis (i.e., in the proper method), as they confer quick results whereas others cause delay.
2) The word mahayaga would also mean the occult meditation, as it is explained in the Bhavanopanishad. The Mahayaga is most secret and it is to be accomplished by sivayogins alone
