LALITHA SAHASRANAMAM MAI SAHASRANAMAM
441) Kaulamaargatatparasevitaa कौलमार्गतत्परसेविता – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 441
Worshipped by those, devoted to the Kaula कौल path or worshipped by family members from pedigree to pedigree. “That Devi, who is established by family tradition, should be worshipped in the customary method, laid down from parents to children,” It has already been explained before, that a devotee’s children, if devotees, are much more loved by Mother.
There are three modes in the worship of Mother, viz., Samaya समय, Mishra मिश्र and Kaula कौल. The first is the path based on the Vedas and is explained in five Agams आगम (Shubhagama Panchaka), the five works of great seers, viz., Shuka शुक , Vashishta वसिष्ठ and others. Kaulachaar कौलाचार is another mode, and Mishra is combination of both. The main difference is that, that the Samayins believe in the sameness of Shiva and Shakti and Kaulas worship only the Shakti. The Samayins believe in rousing the Kundalini and its being worked up in successive stages of Upaasanaa, Tapas and Japa. The Kaulas believe in worship of Mother and leave to Mother, to rouse the Kundalini and are satisfied with their lot, without any restrictions about material and temporal and temporary enjoyments. The Vaamaachaaris or Waama Maargis are more or less similar to Kaulas.
442) Kumaargananaathaambaa कुमारगणनाथाम्बा – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 442
Mother worshipped by Kumaar the deity of war(Mars) and Gananaath , the deity of success. Kumaar psychologically means celibacy. Mother that is attainable by supremacy over discrimination and determination, and with the perennial reservoir of the most carefully preserved sexual energy. The highest and most efficient energy is the sexual energy, which can be utilized to do the most wonderful work.It is therefor why I have often most emphatically stated “Very little practical work can be done by institutes of selfish, self-contained, unenergetic, motionless, ever anxious, pulled out and child producing people, of wise talk, no leisure, no work and no usefulness.( Page 38, Theory and Principles of Mother’s Lodge.)
Any institute that wants to do solid work shall be required to have quite an appreciable number of unmarried workers , of both sexes. The fright of unmarried life and the social, wicked and suspicious mentality about the unmarried life shall have to be wiped away, as soon as any such institute gains strength.
There can be nothing more foolish than to presume that it is impossible for a man or a woman, to remain chaste in the unmarried stage. there is nothing more suicidal than succumbing to a life long bondage of married life , for one who has the aspirations and capacities of higher life , of Service , Love and Devotion, simply because there is the fear or even the extremely remote possibility of once-in-life failure in some accursed wick moment, or because there is no provision of maintenance made by society, or parents or relations or religious institutes.
When married life becomes selfish to the core , when none is free to consider, watch and serve the general weal and welfare, each married couple lives simply for adding to the poverty of the already half famished populace of a country, unmarried life shall welcome as a boon to the individuals, who are out for Mother’s work and society.
There are dangers, no doubt, of unmarried life as well, but no doubt, unmarried life is a boon to them that are really great and have a higher ambition and goal than that of sense-living and who almost dedicated their life to doing service to humanity.The Founder’s first question to every youngster (thousands of whom have approached him) is, ” Are you married ? ”
Mostly married people seek protection for being saved themselves, with absolutely no possibility of being useful to save others.
In the opinion of the Founder, the salvation if India does not lie in political game-playing or warfare, but in the building of character, for one and all of the nation, through the religious revival in new form with the Mai-istic Life maxims of “Love All, Serve All, Devote yourself to Mother (or Father) with unconditional cheerful self surrender,” sharpening the thirst for higher happiness which once tasted kicks out material happiness, through celibates of both sexes in thousands with their life dedicated to Mother of Humanity, their wide-spread religious education, under the guidance and the supervision of the world-renounced high souls (not diplomatic agitators) and through ample provisions by Religious Institutes for helping the poor and destitute, and through affording protection to the needy, etc.
Those that have been suckled by Mother with Her breasts of nectar ever remain to be children, and as innocent of sexual pleasure as children, as an instance of this, Kumaar or Kaartikeya , who remains celibate, may be quoted.

447) Shaantih शांतीः – Peace. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 447
Mother is peace itself. Peace or peacefulness is nothing of man’s making, Best balanced brains will get agitated in no time. Hence peace is Mother Herself. Peace is an effect and not a cause.
That which gives peace to a man struggling with the flood of his impurities, illusions and tossing to and fro, as a result of his actions , is something which proceeds from Mother, as Her Grace. This is Shaantikalaa, the art of peacefulness and mainly consists of realising one’s inability to remedy any matters anyway, and renouncing oneself to Her, with unconditional self-surrender to Her Divine Will.
She that quiets down the soul. The disquietude is due to the agitation on account of the mental confusion. Duality is the cause of fear and loss of peacefulness.
