She is not bound by the limitations of vice and virtue in a matter of Herself and Her relations with devotees. Virtues and vices are tendencies, which lead to finally permanently desirable and undesirable actions and results.
When She showers Her Grace on a devotee, She first makes Her devotees devoid of vice and virtue, and then that which leads to a desirable result is taught to him by teachers whom She specially deputes to teach him. Generally speaking, that conduct which prevails in each country in accordance with tradition, conditions and circumstances, and which is not contrary to the fundamental truths in scriptures, is called Dharma. As per Mother's Ideal, sacrifice, good conduct, self-control, non-injury, gift and sacred study, etc. is Dharma. Dharma means upholder, whatever holds you up from going down. Dharma further means duty, i.e., duty to one's creator, one's sisters and brothers, and to the universe, ancestors and posterity, and finally Dharma mean one's nature, and this is suggestive of union with Mother or returning to the final most Mother.

Sometimes it is said, that the mind turns away fully vanquished, and convinced of the impossibility of comprehending Mother, and again sometimes it is stated that by mind alone, She should be and will be perceived.

Mai's White Lotus Feet indicate the pure Samvit, i.e., universal consciousness, which is untainted by any Upaadhis, (obstructive environments), etc. The red feet are the Paraahantaa (Supreme egoism); also known as Mahat being the first emotion(vritti) from the Samvit (universal consciousness). The combined coloured feet indicate atoms of egoism, manifesting themselves, each by the modification (the vritti) of " I " in individuals.

Mother is the foundation of the Universe and the supreme consciousness which She has or is, the foundation of all consciousness about all things. She establishes certain relations of cause and effect, substance and property, and laws governing all the phenomena of the Universe. Similarly, in the path of evolution, it is Her Grace that lays the foundation of all evolution.

Praan-Pratishthaa of an idol or a photograph means the sanctifying the same, by pouring in or establishing the soul force therein, by those that are empowered to do so, by intense devotion and purity, through Divine Grace.

Asat knowledge means the knowledge which is not non-existent, but which is contrary to the final truth, and which every soul has, before the above-said realization.

Knowledge obtained as the concentrated essence from the experience of many actions and their results and conclusions which gives guidance to every being, at every further step.
As the taste of saltishness experienced in a lump of salt is neither within nor without, so is full and concentrated knowledge, permeated in and around the "object known", outside and principally as reflected in the brain stuff.

(410) Jnaanavigrahaa ज्ञानविग्रहा - Whose body is formed of atoms, every one of which is permeated with knowledge.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्रनाम क्रमांक 644

Jnaana alone is the supreme liberator, Jnaana lone is the supreme binder. This universe consists of knowledge. There is nothing beyond knowledge. Jnaana is both Vidyaa or liberating knowledge and Avidyaa, or binding knowledge.

(412) Satya-jnaana-anada-rupaa सत्यज्ञानानंदरूपा - In the form of Truth, wisdom and bliss. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 791
Mother is both knowledge and ignorance, the high-class joy and worldliness joy.

Those who worship ignorance, enter into deep darkness.  Those who worship knowledge, enter into the highest lights. What one likes, that he seeks, What he seeks that he collects knowledge about. Seeking and knowing how he gets approach to the sought. What one is in contact with, that attracts him. What attracts him that he exerts to possess. Finally deleting the intermediate process, what one likes, that he gets.

The important psycic law is that the illuminated gets more and more illuminated and the deluded gets more and more deluded.

The reverse meaning is brought out thus : - Sati (सत् ) Ajna (अज्ञ)  Anaanandaa (अनानंद)      or  
Sati (सत् ) - Ajnaana(अज्ञान) - Aanadaa(आनंद) :-

सत्यज्ञानानन्दरूपा  =  सत्य +ज्ञान + आनंद + रूपा   //          सत्य+ अज्ञ + अनानंद + रूपा  //  सत्य + अज्ञान + आनंद + रूपा 
 The entire absence of joy or the continuous feeling of being miserable, for them, that do not know Mother (Sati, Thee) or the imitative or delusive joy arising from the worldwormness and sense living of them that are in dark regarding Mother (Thee), respectively. These two, as also the joy of the truly wise and followers of truth, all proceed from Her (Thee), and are making of Hers (Thine) and are aspects of Her (Thine) alone.

Dearest reader, if thou hast love for me, repeat and repeat the above para, substituting Thee and Thine for Mother, Her, Hers and Her, etc. for the sake of thy love for me at least. From "The entire" to "alone".

i.e. :  =

[ The entire absence of joy or the continuous feeling of being miserable, for them that do not know THEE  or the imitative or delusive joy arising from the worldwormness and sense living of them that are in dark regarding THEE, respectively. These two, as also the joy of the truly wise and followers of truth, all proceed from THEE, and are making of THINE, and are aspects of THINE alone.] 

It has made me loose myself at 9 A.M. on Friday, 9 January 1940.
The joy of them, that are blessed with wisdom, knowledge of Truth and experience of bliss, as well as that of those drowned in ignorance and worldliness due to the absence of a relationship with or at least, knowledge of Her, are both Hers.
And it is this, that explains why true devotees of Mai enjoys everything, even ignorance, worldliness, irreligiosity and atheism, and are not ruffled thereby, and are never driven to hating others; as in the case of religious persons of other creeds. A Mai-ist is very broad in his outlook. He says," Well if the joy of the particular soul lies in evil, let him be happy therewith. It is all Mother's play."

(413) Paraaparaa परापरा - Superior and Inferior. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 790
"Paraa means superior, enemy, distance, " and Aparaa the reverse. Paraa means others and Aparaa means the self; again Paraa means foe and Aparra friends. Paraaparaa is he, who is far and near, without and within, foreign or familiar, foe or friend.
Mother is neither of these and yet both of these.
Paraa and Aparaa also mean the two kinds of knowledge true and false, similarly night and day, and therefore mother is dawn, which joins the two.
Mother, when She wants to create, prompts Her devotees to praise Her, as the dawn at the time of the beginning of creation.
Knowledge is said to be two-fold by the division of Paraa and Aparaa. Of these, the first is the supreme knowledge and leads to the cognition of the Mother, and liberation from the bondage of the self. The second, Aparaa knowledge is such knowledge of false notions, beliefs, differences, etc. as simply becomes the cause of greater and greater bondage. Some add the Paraaparaa knowledge which is there, when one who well knows both varieties of knowledge, continuously swings between the two and attains little of permanent gain.
Worship is also of three kinds: Aparaa, Paraaparaa and Paraa.
Aparaa means, remaining in the spiritual realm of nonduality, the Aparaaparaa is worship of Mother, through and by means of the (Shree) Chakra.
The Paraa means worship of all manifestations of Her, without the higher understanding.
Mother is also threefold, paraa , Aparaa and Paraaparaa. Brahmi, the creative energy, which has the white colour, is said to be Paraa. Vaishnavi, the protective energy, which has the red colour is Aparaa, and Raudri, the destructive energy, which is black coloured, is called Paraaparaa.

(414) Paraanishthaa परानिष्ठा  - Supreme end. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 573
Attaining Mother is the final goal.
All kinds of actions and knowledge, sooner or later, bring the soul to that conclusion.
All actions good and even bad, by experience, lead you to the same conclusion, and that being the goal to be achieved, Jivas are made to do all different actions, both bad and good, and to pass through various experiences. 

(415) Paraatparaa परात्परा -   The supremest of the supreme. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 809

Mother is greater than the greatest, nearer than nearest, more befriending than the most befriending. The worshipper of the Highest Lord, Servant of the lowest servant, grosser than the grossest, and subtler than the subtlest.

"One who knows both knowledge and ignorance, crosses over death, by knowing and eliminating ignorance and attains immortality, by attaining and achieving fruits of knowledge."
One must have both negative and positive knowledge and resort to both types of corresponding remedies. The two kinds of knowledge are, one about self-realization and the other about how the delusions and obstructions arise.
Vidyaa and Avidyaa are two forms of Mother, by one man are freed, by the other they are bound.
Mother has three forms, Bhraanti भ्रांती, Vidyaa विद्या and Paraaपरा . The confused knowledge of different objects almost of a delusive nature, is called Bhraanti भ्रांती. Knowledge concerning self and Brahman without ambiguity, are called Vidyaa विद्या and Paraa परा respectively.

(392) Vishvaadhikaa विश्वााधिका- Transcending the universe. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 334
She is beyond universe. This name removes misunderstanding of those who think that God is only imaginary name for all things of universe put together known as "nature". This name is an eye-opener for them who do not go beyond "Mother Nature".

(393) Vishnumaayaa विष्णुमाया - All-pervading love. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 339
Vishnu means all pervading unlimited by place, time and law of causation, etc. and Maayaa means love. It is in the field of Maayaa, delusion and love, that seeming absurdities have a place.
Mother is the donor of the power of diplomacy and delusion conferred on Vishnu to enable him to conduct and protect the universe. This is an instance glorifying Her name Varadaa, the boon-giver. The most efficient and the most wonderful power that  subjects and conquers everything and everyone is Vishnu's. And it is by way of boon of Her giving. Ishitva (supremacy) and Vashitva (subjugation) are Vishnu's powers or Vaishnavi powers of holding supremacy after subjugation..
In a worldly way, success is achieved by four powers known as Shama शम (conciliatory, co-operative and persuasive power), Daana दान (purchasing power and power of temptations through promised or actual returns),Bheda भेद (powers of dissuading, misinterpreting secret working, planning, plotting and cheating etc.) and Danda दण्ड (power of force and might). 

(394) Kalaatmikaa कलात्मिका -  In the form of kalaa. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 611 
In the waking state, there are four Kalaas कला (phases)namely, rising, thinking , and maintaining continuity and relevancy of mental action. The waking state is said to be the function of Shakti. In the sleeping state, the four Kalaas are death, oblivion,insensibility and sleep abounding with darkness, and these belong to Shiva. In the dreaming state the four Kalaas are desire, confusion, anxiety and recollection of sense objects and these belong to Shiva and Shakti unified. In the Turyaa तुर्या state, the four Kalaas are dispassion, desire of salvation, the mind purified by concentrated meditation (Samadhi समाधी) and determination of reality and unreality; these Kalaas belong to the Final most Mother.

(395) Kalaanidhih कलानिधिः- Reservoir of sciences and art.
Kalaas are also jivaas (souls) who are mere bubbles in the ocean of Mother.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 797

(396) Gambhiraa गंभीरा - Fathomless. Ocean in which devotees are prepared to drown themselves and enjoy swimming ecstasy. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 954

She is the great lake of the universe, which is purified or polluted by every good or bad action, thought or desire (vide serial 390) . The whole humanity in this universe resides in, and takes in, the water of this Lake. You are spoiling the great Lake by every bad thought or action or desire and it is the same dirty water that you have to live in and take in.
Gambhiraa is the large tank (Mahahrada) which means the lake in shape of the supreme Divine Mother. Anusandhaana or Meditation means the feeling of being merged in that tank and Anubhava or experience is the happy condition after bath purification. It is the clear manifestation of the Self in its full understanding with reference to the Universe and Mother.

(397) Kshaya-vinnirmuktaa क्षयविनिर्मुक्ता - Free from decay. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 867
" It also means 'exempted from having to leave household for working out salvation ", Taking Kshaya to mean "house" and "Vinirmuktaa" to mean "freed". Those who obtain Mother's Grace can attain salvation, even while living as householders, Houses are often abandoned for the fear of worldly objects by those who desire salvation but salvation is more easily obtain by the devotees of Mother, even while they are in their houses.Mother's Ideal says, "If you desire the supreme abode, do not abandon your own abode." "Remember in your heart the name of Mother, and you are on the way to supreme abode."

One of the most common question is "Whether it is necessary to leave one's family, home , wife and children etc., to attain salvation. The answer is here given. Her devotees are freed from the requirement, It is surely necessary for Hinduism, which prescribe the four Ashrams but it is not so for Mai-ism. Mai-ism views the question universally. If renouncing the world were indispensable Zoroastrians would never get salvation, for with them there is no such institute as of Sanyaasis. The idea which Mai-ism holds on the subject is that your salvation depends on what you are, and not on where you are, in a house or in a forest, or in your own house or another's house. 

What is best, is to alternately resort to being within and without the world. Being within, one knows where he is on the spiritual ladder, he is put to test, he gets experience and schooling. Being without, he evolves and awakens his latent powers to meet the temptations and tests while within.It is just like the mungoose-serpent fight. Mongoose is aspiring soul and serpent is worldliness. The serpent and mongoose fight hard within and with the world or serpent. When he gets poisoned by contact, he runs away to his hole where there is some wonderful Herbage (Mother), the smell of which acts as an antidote to all poison. By most perseverant alternate resorting to, within and without, finally he overcomes the worldliness, killing the serpent.

(398) Naishkarmyaa नैष्कर्म्या - Affected by no actions. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 900
Mother is neither sinful nor righteous. She is free from the taint of action. Mother is untainted by pain, action and the result of action and mental impression.
Mother is given this name , which literally means actionless for several reasons. (1) She so tactfully manages every smallest detail of the working of the Universe in the sets of ostensible causes and effects, that most of the average men remain in delusion, regarding Her real Finalmost Power behind such ostensible reasons. (2) Mother is actionless for them that consider the supreme working power to be the Law of Action and Reaction and do not believe in any intercession or reserve powers to make exceptions. (3) She is called actionless to evade any imputation regarding the evil and misery, injustice and inequality, partiality and mercilessness. (4) Finally , She is called Actionless because whatever Grace She showers , She sportively and lovingly attributes to anyone of Her most beloved devotees and prompts the society and humanity to believe so, although the devotees are Nimittas (for name's sake only).
True devotees call themselves to be "measures". The donor and the Grace -Showerer is Mother, the recipients are blessed children of Mother, and the measure, the vessel, the temporary container of the Grace, which Mother handles to pass Her Grace are Her self-surrendered devotees.

A devotee king was, on Mother's day (Friday), giving alms worth thousands, to the learned , poor, destitute and needy. For the whole period that he was distributing alms, he kept his head hanging low towards the ground, with tears trickling at intervals. Someone asked "why". The devotee said "Whatever is given is Hers. Whomever it is given  are Hers. Why has Mother ordained such a hard ordeal for me to test, if I get deluded and succumb with the idea of being the giver? Is it not enough for Her to know, that I am not worthy enough for the dust of Her devotees' Lotus Feet on my head.?"

(399) Mithyaa-jagadadhishthaanaa मिथ्याजगदधिष्ठाना- She that serves as basis of the illusory Universe. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 735
The difference arise in Her just as the mother of pearl is the basis of illusion of there being silver therein.
Indeed Mother alone is all this. All other things exist but not as separate from and independent of Her. Mother alone exist in that sense. Mother alone is all this and there is none and never, any other.
According to Mother's Ideal, the universe is the manifestation of Mother, and the universe is real, because, as the Universe and Mother are not different. Universe is real as Mother is real. If clay is real, the pot is also real. Only thing is that, the difference that is made between the pot and the clay is illusory or unreal. The subtle difference between "does not exist,"  "is unreal" and "is illusory", should minutely noted, as without proper understanding, the meaningless misleading parrot-like jargon has thrown so many aspirants out of gear and overboard.

Take for instance a sugar and a cow toy and a tiger toy, made of sugar. The cow sugar toy gives happy association while the tiger sugar toy gives unhappy association of thoughts to a child. The child grows up and later, neither the cow toy makes him happy, nor the tiger toy unhappy. Does the cow toy of sugar exist or not.? That it does not exist is meaningless, senseless jargon. Put that toy in the boiling water, the water gets sweet. If you put two such toys it will be doubly sweet. The sugar toy or cow toy exists. The cowness and tigerness of the toy also exists, though for the child alone, and although the existence is illusory. The cowness and tigerness has existence for the Mother and confectioner, as well, but it is unreal existence . It is the difference between cowness and tigerness, that is illusory, and not the cow toy or the tiger toy. Further if a cow or tiger had no existence at any time or anywhere, there could not have been any love or fear. The theory viz., that the whole universe is illusory is absurd.
To the person who puts the toy in boiling water, the toy has existence in the shape of the sweetness of the water.
Thus under the Mother's Ideal the universe has existence and every object has an existence. It may not exist tomorrow as that object, but it has an existence in another shape. The most correct method of pronouncing judgement about the existence or  non existence of a thing would therefore be, not by making an arbitrary decision, but by judging everything by its own quality, condition, circumstances and merit. For an infatuated lover like Soordas anxious to meet his beloved, the blackest night does not exist and is broad light day, but to others it is the darkest night. The corpse in the river does not exist, and is a jolly boat purposely kept by the beloved, to enable him to cross the river and the most poisonous serpent hanging from the window, does not exist as a serpent, but is a rope intentionally tied by his beloved to enable him to climb up to her room. What exists for one does not exist for another and vice-versa. The universe does exist for one  so long as he is affected by it. To say that the whole Universe does not exist is absurd. What is illusory or unreal is the appearance of differences and wrong notions , in and about the Universe.

If a definition of different words is reduced to plain ideas and qualifying epithets are used, much of the wasteful word-war would be over; because I feel somehow, no true seer saw the Finalmost Irreducible Form of the Eternal Truth in a contradictory form to that which another true seer saw. The difference lies in the confusion of words, a method of expression, partial vision, meaning attached to words, thought-world and emotion-world arising with speaking or hearing of certain words, points on which to lay, stress etc.

The most familiar illustration of seven blind men describing an elephant differently and even contradictorily is often quoted. But going even beyond that very satisfactorily explanation, if even an ignorant man  describes an elephant as a huge animal who could trample you under his foot in a second , say, if you prick it with a pin, I am sure all the seven blind men will agree with him. The only thing is that he must be the elephant driver, to readily give experience to anyone  who doubts the said description.This means God is the Final Supreme Controlling Beneficent Power , proceeding from Infinite Love, which is God's Finalmost form. 
Experience of God and Godliness is as true as any living fact and as universal as the coolness of the moon, which is the very same for anyone  of any clime, colour or age. Experience is same. though expression varies, and going further down, misunderstandings, misinterpretations and word-warfares are innumerable and eternal.

The substance to play with  is the very same, as say a pack of fifty two cards. Each intellectual game originator comes forth to frame his own imaginary rules and introduces or creates a game . Within the players of different games themselves there are quarrellings  but an outsider only says "They are playing cards."

(400) Ekaakini एकाकिनी -One alone. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 665
Mother is one without second. Alone, She creates the worlds, alone She establishes them, alone She consumes the Universe. Hence She is called the One.
'She is one' and 'She is many', (please see the Preface). Though She is one , She is everywhere and cognised as many by limitations.Just as the crystal looks coloured, by the transmission of the different colours, just as one cloud become many retaining the same nature and colour, just as the rain from the sky assumes various tastes and colors according to the soil, just as the one fire takes different shapes, and just as wind is said to be differently odorous, so also Mother is said by the wise to be one and many.
Mother is One alone, to Her devotees as seen in their single-mindedness during their sublime most period of devotion; and Mother is many while they move in the Universe and deals with hundreds of humanity and hundreds of experiences of desires, thoughts, emotions and actions etc

Names 369 to 390

(369) Kshettraswarupaa क्षेत्रस्वरूपा - With a matter as Her body.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 341

While going through this name, one should seriously think how body limits the soul, which is so often led by the requirements of the body. A body has a certain power over the soul.

One of the greatest subjects of thought is how to bring about the best and correct understanding of the relation and rhythm, between the body and the soul.

(370) Kshetreshi क्षेत्रेशी - The ruler of matter. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नामक्रमांक 342

(371) Kshetra-kshetrajna-paalini क्षेत्रक्षेत्रज्ञपालिनी - The protector of matter and of the knower of matter. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 343
Kshetra means the matter or the field and Kshetrajna is the knower thereof, i.e., the soul (jiva). This body is called Kshetra, and on who resides therein is called Kshetrajna.

(372)Kshetrapaal-samarchitaa क्षेत्रपालसमर्चिता -Worshipped by Kshetrapaal, the protector of the universe. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 345
It is explained in Hindu Mythology that Kaali, one of the aspects of Mother as the fighter on battle-field killed a demon, but thereafter the fire of  Her wrath was not appeased. Seeing the consternation of the world, Shiva, in order to appease Her anger, assumed the form of crying infant. She suckled the child who drank up the fire of anger along with the breast milk. This child which is that incarnation of Shiva is called Kshetrapaala. Kshetra is also the place where Mother is worshipped. In places where Mother is worshipped, Mother's invisible devotees remain present. Being so very anxious to maintain the continuance of worship and sacredness of the place, they actually pray to Mother for the continuance of the prayer holding and sacredness of the place and practice.

(373) Pancha-koshaantara-sthitaa पंचकोशांतरस्थिता - Residing in the five sheaths. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 428
Corresponding to our bodies there are five sheaths. These Koshas are called Annamaya, Praanamaya, Manomaya, Vijnaanamaya and Aanandamaya. Each is involved in the preceding one. Of this five, the innermost last is the Aanandamaya and with that, Mother is identified. She is the witness and controller of these sheaths.

(374 - 375 - 376 - 377 ) Praanadaa प्राणदा, Praaneshvari प्राणेश्वरी, Praanadaatri प्राणदात्री, Praanarupini प्राणरूपिणी -ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 783, 831, 832, 784
Praana means senses as also the five vital breaths. Mother is the Giver of life, which enables the body to perform its functions. Vivifier of the universe, the Supporter of the breath in therefore of life and Nourisher of senses. Mother is Breath of breaths.

(378) Murtaa मूर्ता - Shapely. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 813

(379) Amurtaa अमूर्ता - Shapeless.  ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 814
Murtaa is earth, water and fire. Amurtaa means air and ether. The former is so called because it has form, whereas the latter has no form.
Further Murta means the five gross elements mingled with each other; Amurta means the subtle elements which are not mingled with each other.
Again Murta means Universe and Amurta means Brahman. Also, they mean perishable and imperishable respectively.

(380) Avyakta अव्यक्ता - Unimanifest. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 398
Avyakta is the collective form of the three qualities of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.

(381) Vyaktaavyaktarupini व्यक्ताव्यक्तरूपिणी - In the form of manifested and unmanifested or individual or collective existence. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 399

Vyakta, is naturally subject to modifications unlike Avyakta. 
Vyakta is perishable. Avyakta is imperishable. Taking Vyktaa to mean the first manifestation, it is Supreme Egoism.
Vyakta, Avyakta and Vyaktaavyakta are three conceptions of Mother for each of the three processes, viz., those of worship, devotion and meditation and they are generally based on the above meanings. If you worship Mother in the universe around, which is Vyakta form, you get happiness. On the other hand, if you worship Mother as the eternal Finalmost Mother, which is the Avyakta form, you get salvation.  If you worship Mother both ways. i.e., at times with form and with attributes and at times without form and without attributes, you get both, i.e. happiness and salvation.

She is manifested ( Vyakta ) to and in those devotees, whose deeds have been ripened and is not manifested (Avyakta), to and in those who have remained themselves bound by the noose of Maayaa and She is Vyaktaavyakta to and in them who have known the whole science of evolution and their own situation and desired the attainment of the finalmost stage, but have not attained it

On the same lines, Vyakta meditation is the meditation of one's worshippable in the limited and experienced form. Avyakta meditation is focusing on the conception of the universal form and Vyaktaavyakta meditation is the happy combination of concentration on the form delimited to be fully within practicability, but vested with limitlessness and infinity. Krishna as Yashodaa's son is Vyakta, Krishna as Vaasudeva is Avyakta and Krishna as Raadhaa's Beloved is Vyaktaavyakta.

(382) Bahurupaa बहुरूपा  - Of manifold form. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 824 

(383) Vividhaakaaraa विविधाकारा - Of varied multifold forms. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 401

She is formless because She is Supreme, whereas She is many-formed because of Her activity. Though She is of the nature of Para Brahma, ( Finalmost mother ), She is also the agent of all action and activity ( Active Mother ).

The difference between the above two names, is that one refers to innumerable varieties of the same kind, and other to the innumerable kinds, even contradictory and yet there is no incongruency as stated in the next name.

(384) Nirdvaitaa निर्द्वैता - Without duality. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 667

(385) Dvaitvarjitaa द्वैतवर्जिता - Transcending duality. ललिता सहस्रना स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 668

None of the opposite pairs are permanently true, not are they, during the period of their existence, able to exert any permanent influence. Nor can She be permanently conceived as in two parts. She is goodness, Benevolence, Love and Mercy alone. She is all the best and best alone in spite of all seeming evil, because She alone is both opposite parts, both being of Her making and ever creatable and destructible by Her, at Her sweet will and pleasure.

(386) Naamarupavivarjitaa नामरूपविवर्जिता - Transcending name and form. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 300
There are five qualities of the universe, which appear inextricably intertwined in the knot of spirit and matter. These as analysed by great men, are known as 'existence, knowledge, bliss, name and form.'

(387) Desha-kaala-pari-chchhinnaa देशकालपरिच्छिन्ना  Unlimited by space and time. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 701

Limited by space, means the absolute non-existence of a thing in a certain place (as when we say,"This is not here"). Limited by time, is similarly explained when we say, "This was not before" or "It will not exist in future." She is also unlimited by the laws of causation. This means that She can manifest Herself or shower Her Grace, in any place and any time. Devotees or preachers or Truth-seers can flourish in any country. There in any case , in any religious world, and in any century. There is no monopoly for the Maiist. Her Grace and manifestation is even above the Law of cause and effect. This means that there is no stereotyped mechanical routine, through which every soul has to pass, in the very same manner and through the very same experiences.

(388) Saakshivarjitaa साक्षीविवर्जिता - Herself unwitnessed. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 385

She is not seen by anyone while She sees everyone and everything. There is no witness to the One who is the witness of all things. Says one devotee," There is a mountain behind a straw and none sees the mountain ".

(389) Kritajnaa कृतज्ञा - Witness and judge of actions. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 374

"Under Her supreme command the Sun, the  Moon, the God of death, Time and the five elements watch and witness every good and bad actions, thought and desire of all beings".
Kritajnaa may also be taken to mean knower i.e., the Rewarder
of every smallest good thought, feeling and action.

(390)  Chidekarasarupini  चिदेकरसरूपिणी - The one ocean of all intelligence brought to a homogeneity.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 364

The idea is this. Consider a lake in which all people put in good and bad things. The lake as a whole, malarious or of decease-removing property, is equally effective to all. Any man who  does a good action or thinks a good thought adds to the permanent lake, and She is the master of all the workings in this lake, and of the universal homogeneous influence of this lake.

Names 341 to 368

 Under this group, such names have been selected as are helpful in giving a general understanding of soul, universe and Almighty Mother.
" One of the most important requests I have to make my readers, is to always remember while reading Mai Sahasranam, that the word devotees always means both sisters and brothers, women and men. It is only a great pity that with the traditional convention of centuries I have to treat the word devotees as of the masculine gender. To use the expressions "her" and him" or " hers and his " so often makes the language most clumsy and harsh to hear. It can not be, however, too much emphasised, that under Mai-ism, a female devotee need not begin to think as men or compose devotional poems as men and should not mentally transform herself to be a man, to be considered eligible for devotion or Mother's Grace. In Mai ism, man has no superiority over a woman, either from the point of the evolution of the soul or worthiness to get Mother's Grace. Mother's Lodge is an institute of Sisters and Brothers and not that of Brother's alone, that is liberal hearted enough to extend admission to sisters. Maiism means a spiritual coequal religious recognition for both sexes
First, we begin with the different states of the soul and the different functions of the Supreme Power, i.e. Mother.

(341) Jaagarini  जागरिणी - She that manages the waking state. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 257

She that manages the waking state dear to all, which is the state of being capable of doing external actions through the activity of different faculties and organs of action and knowledge. Jiva or soul in its waking state is called Jagarit and acts in the gross body called Vishva.

(342) Svapanti  स्वपन्ती - Dreaming state. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 258

She that manages the state of Svapna (dream) which is the state of objectifying visions ( which are perceived in the mind ), caused by the perception of ideas latent in the mind. Jiva in its dreaming state is called Tejas and acts in the subtle body. 
It is a big question, whether the crown of a king in the waking state or the begging bowl of the same king in the dreaming state, should be called true or Satya

(343)  Suptaa सुप्ता  - State of sleep. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 260
She that manages the state of sleep. Sleep is the incapacity of discrimination i.e., the illusion. One says," I slept happily. I knew nothing "  One says this from recollection. Three modifications of Avidyaa are indicated by this expression, viz., ignorance, egoism and happiness. Sound sleep is that state, in which these three exist. Jiva in this state is called Praajna and acts in the causal body.

(344)  Turyaa तुर्या  - State of ecstasy. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 262
She that manages the Turya state. Turaya is the state in which the experience called Shuddhavidya, which is the result of discrimination of these (lower ) three states, is acquired and enjoyed. Though there are different states,. viz., waking, dreaming, and sleeping, real enjoyment exists only in the fourth one. Jiva in this state is above the notion of the lower three bodies and is stated to have merged in the great causal body. It is the ecstasy in the fourth state, which dripping therefrom and permeating the other three states, animates them and confers enjoyability thereon. In the Turyaa state the static knowledge experience and the working of the thinking, feeling and acting (all accumulating to an extinction of the notion of body,etc.) and the enjoyment of bliss, are all of the highest order.

(345) Sarvaavasthaavivarjitaa सर्वावस्थाविवर्जिता  - Transcending all the states. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 263

This is the fifth state and may be called " beyond Turyaa state."

 The supreme state which is beyond the Turyaa is only to be attained through a firm hold on the Turyaa. When this stage is once reached by a jiva, his physical life by its living itself becomes a religious observance. His conversation is itself, then, the japa and his dealing with anyone in any manner act as an elucidation of the knowledge of Self. It is these souls who have reached this stage that has the power of transforming others, even without any upadesh (उपदेश), on their merely remaining in their atmosphere. In their presence, a man is changed and sublimated and his doubts are dispelled without any explanation whatsoever

(346) Vishvaatmikaa विश्वात्मिका - In the collective form of all souls in the waking state. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 256

This word is slightly altered to suit the symmetry of the following two words. The name in the original is Vishvarupaa. 

(347) Taijasaatmikaa तैजसात्मिका - In the collective form of all jivas in the dreaming state.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 259

(348) Praajnaatmikaa प्राज्ञात्मिका - In the collective form of all jivas in the sleeping state. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 261
After the description of the five states of jivas who are controlled by Avidyaa, five functions of the Supreme Power are described as under.

(349) Srishtikarti सृष्टिकर्त्री - Creator. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 264

(350) Brahmarupini ब्रह्मरूपिणी  - In the form of Brahma.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 265

(351) Goptri गोप्त्री - Protector. ललिता सहस्र नाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 266

(352) Govindarupini गोविन्दरूपिणी - In the form of Vishnu.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 267

(353) Samhaarini संहारिणी - Destroyer for reconstruction.
Samhaara means reducing the universe to atoms or collecting together. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 268 

(354) Rudrarupini रूद्ररूपिणी -  In the form of Mahesh or Rudra. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 269

(355) Tirodhaanakari  तिरोधानकरी- Causer of disappearance.
Tirodhaana means complete destruction, i.e., the absorption even of the atoms into Prakriti. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 270

(356) Ishvari ईश्वरी - In the form of Ishvar. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 271 

(357) Anugrahadaa अनुग्रहदा  - Conferrer of the blessing of rejuvenation. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 273
When after complete annihilation, the universe again assumes the form of the primordial atoms, the process is called Anugraha. This is the function of Sadashiva. Anugraha means blessing. Mother blesses the jivas by creating the universe again and giving a new living for experiences, enjoyment, etc.

(358) Sadaashiva सदाशिवा - In the form of Sadaashiva. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 272
To recapitulate, the external and the internal manifestations of Mother Mai, which cause bondage and release, and which have corresponding expressions in Tirodhaan and Anugraha respectively, are Ishvari and Sadaashiva, when highest Rajas and highest Satva respectively predominate. It is the sub functioning of Mother as Ishvar that gives rise to the three sub-aspects referred to in the serial numbers 349, 351 and 353, as Srishtikartri, Goptri and Sanhaarini.

(359) Panchakrityaparaayanaa पंचकृत्यपरायणा - Devoted to the five functions. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 274 
Thus the five functions of Mother are the creation, preservation, destruction, annihilation and causing the reappearance of the universe, which manifest themselves one after another, incessantly.
In the above names, five names are Hers in Her "energy" aspect, five names are Hers as substance. Or say, there are five names as the propeller and five as the actor.
Mother binds the whole universe and holds souls bewildered by the noose of illusion and the strong ropes of " I " and " Mine ". Corresponding to the five functions of the Supreme Power above stated, and individual souls' functions are Illumination ( creation ), affection ( preservation ), dissatisfaction ( destruction ), lamentation ( annihilation ), fructification ( causing reappearance ).

(360) Tattvamayi तत्वमयी - In the form of Tattvas. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 907
Next should be the consideration of Tattvas. Tattvas are numbered differently by different teachers, primarily.
Primarily, we may consider the three Tattvas, viz., Atma Tatva, Shiva Tattva and Vidya Tattva. The imperfect, the perfect and the transformer of imperfect to perfect. She is collectively in the form of these three Tattvas, as well as transcending the three.
For thirty-six Tatvas in detail, the introduction may please be read.
(1) Atmatattva has a preponderance of the element of Shiva merged in maayaa, (2) Vidyaa Tattva has that of Shakti and (3) Shiva Tattva , that of Shiva and Shakti combined. The fourth ( The Turiyaa Tattva ) represents the unification and oneness of these three together. From another view, these three Tattvas represents Sat, Chit and Ananda. From earth upwards, the thirty-six Tattvas including Atma are represented by the Tattva "Sat". Chit is the working Power and Ananda is the transformation of imperfect to perfect and the combination of Shiva and Shakti. It is the shadow of this Ananda which the soul experiences, on attending the desired object or state. Taking the two said sets of the interpretations of the Tatvas, Shivatattva correspondence to Anada because it is blissful, Shaktitattva to Chit because it confers knowledge and power, & Atmatattva to Sat, because it has immortal existence, knowledge -- external and perfection -- reaching destiny.

(361) Tattvamarthasvarupini तत्वमर्थस्वरूपिणी - In the form of the identity of "That and Thou". ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 908
Tat means Shiva, or perfect soul, tvam means, the Atma or imperfect soul. Mother is both Shiva and Jiva, as also the unifier and unification or oneness of both.

(362) Tattvaadhikaa तत्वाधिका - Transcending the Tattvas. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 906

The condition of going beyond the Tattvas is indicated by both Samprajnaata and Asampratjnaata Samadhis, meaning states of blissful unconsciousness. The Asamprajnaata Samadhi arises on being unified with Shiva Tattva. The Samprajnaata Samadhi arises by transcending the Shiva Tattva. 
The Asamprajnata Samadhi is slow. The Samprajnata is quick. The slow Samadhi is indicated by the fixity of the eyes and of the body, The quick Samadhi is indicated by laughing, crying, by hair standing erect on their ends, trembling, perspiration, etc.

(363) Shivajnaanapradaayini शिवज्ञानप्रदायिनी  -Bestowing the knowledge about how to be a perfect soul. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 727

(364) Shivashaktyaikarupuni शिवशक्त्यैक्यरूपिणी - The union of Shiva and Shakti. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 999

Her nature is the equal essence of Shiva and Shakti. The Supreme Shakti is one with the Shiva Tattva. Like oil and the oil grain. The Maayaa which is usually described as separate from Brahman is not different from Brahman itself. It is impossible to distinguish the difference. The idea is that Mother is one from whom Shiva with Shakti in his heart and Shakti with Shiva in her heart originate.
The main Shaktis are five and they work as under:
Dhumaavati veils, Bhasvati reveals the Spanda stimulates, the Vibhavi Pervades, the Alhadini nourishes. The Dhumavati Shakti belongs to the earth,Bhasvati to fire, Spanda to air, Vibhavi to ether and Alhadini to water. The whole world is pervaded by and is the working of these Shaktis.

(365) Chetanaarupaa चेतनारूपा  - In the form of consciousness. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 417

Shakti is Chaitanya itself. Devotees meditate upon that primaeval Vidya, which is in the form of Chaitanya of all, and which guides their senses.

(366) Chitshaktih चिच्छक्तिः - The power that removes Avidya ignorance and grants right and righteous consciousness. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 416 

(367) Jadaatmikaa जडात्मिका - She that is the soul of the objective world. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 419
She is insentient Mother as well.

(368) Jadashaktih जडशक्तिः - She is the energy of the inanimate creation and inanimate things. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 418
Thus both Chaitanya and Jada, sentient and insentient, is She.
An object is and becomes what it is by its own energy. Every object even though inanimate has its own energy and is able to exert a certain influence and produce a certain effect or change.
 The energy is generally dependent on and borrowed from the Chaitanya Shakti in close proximity. As an instance, a mirror has the power of enhancing the practice of concentration through inanimate.
