Names 71 to 80

(71) Mantrinyambaa-virachita-vishanga-vadha-toshitaa 
मन्त्रिण्यम्बाविरचितविषंगवधतोषिता She is delighted at the destruction of Vishanga made by mother Mantrini.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 75
Vishanga and Vishukra are the two brothers of Bhanda. Vishanga is a perversion of life-conduct, poisoned judgment and craving for worldly objects. Vishukra is wasteful thinking and action. The perversion is removed by correct thinking and wasteful-ness by right action.

(72) Vishukra-praana-harana-vaaraahi-virya-nanditaa 
विशुक्रप्राणहरणवाराहीवीर्यनन्दिता - Rejoicing in he strength of Vaaraahi the sucker of the life of Vishukra. Vaaraahi  वाराही is Danda Naatha दण्डनाथ or Dandini दण्डिनी.  ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 76

(73) Kaameshvara-mukhaaloka-kalpita-shri-ganeshvaraa
कामेशवरमुखालोककल्पितश्रीगणेश्वरा - Shri Ganeshvara was formed by Her glances at Kaameshvara.ललितासहस्रनामस्तोत्र,नामक्रमांक77
Just as Kaamesha and Kaameshvaraa are different, so are Ganesh and Ganeshvara different. Ganesh is determination and discrimination and Ganeshvara is destroyer of doubt.
If, after that wasteful action is eliminated and an evil company is shunned by judicious action and right thinking, the devotee has mastered his desires, i.e., has become Kaameshvar, Mother smiles at him with approbation for his struggles and success. What arises from this smile is the destruction of all doubts ( the destroyer being Ganeshvara) about Mother's existence, Her readiness to help Her devotees, the final law of action and reaction and the conviction that each experience takes him along way Mother-ward.

(74) Mahaa-ganesha-nirbhinna-vighnayantrapraharshitaa
महागणेशनिर्भिन्नविघ्नयन्त्रप्रहर्षिता - She is delighted at the great Ganesha's breaking the obstacle formed of the magic figure.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 78
Impurities, wasteful action and evil company being eliminated, if one devotes oneself to Mother, Mother showers the Grace of the destruction of all doubts. The magic figure which means insoluble problems as the creation of the universe, life after death, re-incarnation.etc. cease to frighten or confuse the devotee and to form barriers, in relation with or progress towards Mother.
The magic figure which forms the main obstacle is the delusion and limitedness, which confines the soul to a certain restricted field of thought, imagination, emotion and action, etc. Beyond this little square like the four sides of a well in which the frog lives, he cannot peep. Everything else that surpasses those limits is not believed as existing or even possible. It is this magic square which is responsible for so much misunderstanding,alienship, hatred, differences, atheism, quarrelling and all the evils. That pitiable little worldworm finds his heaven and salvation in that little magic square. This square and infatuation of the square is broken by (1)  destruction of doubt about Mother's existence (2) the conviction about the infallibility of Karma Law (3) the conviction that there is a method and a remedy (4) practice with faith, viz., that he is capable of achieving final success through that remedy.

(75) Bhandaasurendra-nirmukta-shastra-pratyastra-varshini
भण्डासुरेन्द्रनिर्मुक्तशस्त्रप्रत्यस्त्रवर्षिणी - She is showering missiles in response to the weapons thrown by Bhandaasura. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 79
After this stage is reached,viz., that doubts have disappeared and the aberration about the said great truths has ceased, the lower mind makes very strong efforts to throw the man overboard. these are the missiles of Bhandaasura, and these missiles mean the last temptations. But when the devotee is thus tried, being pushed into the eternal abyss of delusion by Bhandaasura, Mother is equally alert and She is showering Her Grace in so many ways and of so many varied efficiencies and through so many sources. 

(76) Karaanguli-nakhotpanna-naaraayana-dashaakritih
करांगुलिनखोत्पन्ननारायणदशाकृतिः  From the nails of Her ten Lotus Feet and fingers the ten qualities of Naaraayana-ship ( supreme Godhood of a single universe ) spring.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 80
The Grace is showered from the nails, i.e., on the meditation of and on prostration to Her Lotus Feet, as a result of which there arises the fully perfected condition. In the usual proverb from " Nara to Naaraayan "[ नर से नारायण ], (from manhood to godhood), the meaning Naaraayan as "perfect", is clear. Also, Dashaa दशा means condition and Kriti कृति means to act. From Her Nails proceeds Her act of raising the devotee to the "perfect" condition. And there should be absolutely no doubtfulness or wonderfulness about it because the ten incarnations of Vishnu have sprung from Mother's fingernails. It is stated that the ten Avataars दशावतार (incarnations) having sprung from Her finger ends, and having done their godly miraculous work, stood before her with folded hands, for any further orders, to be carried out.
And this perfection takes place, through the instrumentality of higher and higher, and still higher energies following one after another from the rays, causing greater and greater evolution. this is shown by the avataars themselves of Vishnu, the protecting deity of the Trinity. These are the fish, the tortoise, the boar, the man-lionनृसिंह, the dwarf वामन, the primitive axe carrying Parashuram, Rama, Balaram, Krishna and Kalki, which generally represents the higher and higher forms of evolution of life inhabiting our Earth. From the meditation of the Lotus Feet, the devotee begins to know Mother as the origin of the different wonderful energies which have maintained the equilibrium of the universe. He further gets control over the five states of a jiva or a soul, viz., the wakeful जागृति, dreaming स्वप्न, sleepingसुषुप्ति, ecstatic  तुर्या and ultra-ecstatic परा and also over the powers of creationउत्पत्ति, preservationस्थिति and destructionलय, disappearance and re-appearance which fully belong to Mother, and within certain limitations are gifted to the souls as well, in their small little-soul-creations.

(77) Mahaa-paashupata-astra-agni-nirdagdha-asura-sainikaa
महापाशुपतास्त्राग्निनिर्दग्धासुरसैनिका - She burnt up the army with the fire of the astra (weapon ) called Mahaapaashupata(महापाशुपत). ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 81
After that the grace has been fruitful to this extent She burns away the army, which means the long lingering undetectable Vaasanaas the fundamental rootlets of different desires.
Please differentiate "vanquishing" and "burning" as the latter means total annihilation and not mere control. The army of Daityaas ( demons)means mental modifications due to ignorance. The fire of Mahaapaashupataastra महापाशुपतास्त्र means the burning power created as a result of the belief and practice of the non-duality arising from and increasing with devotion.
(78) Kaameshvaraatra-agni-nirdagdha-sa-Bhandaasura-shunyakaa
कामेश्वरास्त्रनिर्दग्धसभण्डासुरशून्यका - Bhandaasura with his army was burnt up by the (Love) fire of the (weapon of) Kaameshvara. 
ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 82
It is after so many efforts that the superior devotee becomes finally able to kill Bhandaasura by the Fire of Love which he bears to Mother. The subtle point to be noted here is that, although Mother has helped the devotee all throughout, the demon is finally killed by the Kaameshvar. This means that the liberation work of oneself is to be done by oneself alone.

(79) Brahmopendra-Mahendraadideva-samstuta-vaibhavaa 
ब्रह्मोपेन्द्रमहेन्द्रादिदेवसंस्तुतवैभवा - Her supreme power is praised by Brahmaa, Vishnu, Mahendra and others ( deities). ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 83
Her wonderful royal sportivity is praised by all the three big deities for these reasons. Firstly, She Herself gradually brings about the evolution and salvation of Her devotee, secondly, She takes no credit to Herself and shows to the world that the success is achieved by Her devotee himself as the Asura (demon) was finally burnt by the devotee and not Herself and thirdly, She Herself again would restore Bhanda to life as will be seen from the next name.

(80) Hara-netraagni-sandagdha-kaama-sanjivana-aushadhih 
हरनेत्राग्निसंदग्धकामसंजीवनौषधिः - She was the life-giving medicine to Manmatha मन्मथ (God of Love)who was burnt up from the fire from the eye of Shiva.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 84
The question may arise. Is this evil a powerful enemy of Mother? No, even the evil is of Her own making and indispensable to supply the material to Her devotee for practising and experiencing the needful to realise Mother, and therefore, She sees that evil does remain in the world and is not entirely extinguished. Good and evil
both belong to Mother and are of Her making. One is needed for the other. She sees that none is powerful enough to wipe out the existence of the other.
Under  Mai conception, in reality, there is nothing like absolute good or absolute evil. Good and evil are simply relative terms. One helps the soul directly, the other indirectly. If one is achievable , the other is the indirect means of achieving. Evil is seemingly dirty manure to which the sweetest fruit of "good" often owes its existence. In Mother's Lodge philosophy, there is no hatred for evil and no possibility of destroying evil, once for all and ever. By sublimation, the worst vices may be transmuted to be the best virtues.  What is required is the Energy and the success on sublimation, both of which depend on Mother's and guru's Grace alone.
In another view, there is nothing bad. Everything is good, though of different grades. Where the judge enters, there the barrier line is formed; and what is below the bar receives a relative name of "evil".
The good and bad are, therefore, mere making of its maker.
The Mai-ist outlook is different from that of an average follower of any individual religion.  This goal is not to do something secretly for himself to save himself from miseries in his seclusion. The Mai-istic fabric is raised on " being oneself and harmless and useful member of a large family of the Mother ".
The true foundations of Mai creed are different in their very initial forms. Thus the Mai-ist has the greater disposition towards what may be called " Sahajaavasthaa " सहजावस्था, Causal State. as-it-may-please-Mother living". The evil should not be permitted to harass the good, and the good shall not be permitted to humiliate evil beyond certain limits. No downright denouncing of evil, no sky-reaching resounding of good. Be extremely alert, understand the working and act best to achieve your goal. If you can not withstand the temptation after having done your best, do not deprecate yourself, do not despond. Suffer cheerfully, be wiser through your folly; if a thorn has pricked you, well run to Mother. She will slap you but will remove the thorn. There is no great superiority of the thorn unpricked or inferiority of the thorn-pricked. Gradually and cheerfully go towards the goal with faith in Mother's protection and Guru's guidance.

  Thus names from 1 to 60 which fall under the category of  " Shree Maataa " (श्रीमाता) are of pure description and from 61 to 80 which describe how She helps Her devotees to achieve victory, have been shown as falling under the heading of "Shree Mahaaraajni " (श्रीमहाराज्ञी).
Jay Mai Jay Markand Mai Mother Bless All.
