God – Giver of the fruits of good and bad actions

 

God – Giver of the fruits of meritorious and unmeritorious actions.

The respective results of bad and good actions are to be experienced in several fields. Viz.,1) of pains and pleasures; 2) of ignorance and enlightenment; 3) of disagreeable and agreeable environments;  4) of unrighteousness or righteousness; 5) of repulsiveness and attractivity, etc.some here and some in hell or heaven, hereafter.

A very vexing question is, whether a man is a free being or a bound one. Does he act according to the dictates of his own will and conscience, or that of God ( Mother ) ? If he acts under the prompting of God (Mother)’s will, why should be held responsible , and suffer for good or bad actions ? Does not happiness of some and miseries of some, lead to an imputation of partiality and mercilessness on the part of God (Mother) ?

The way out of this paradox is this. Do not mix up the two theories. First begin with “You are Master of your own fortune,” “Righteousness and unrighteousness depend on the doer.” “You suffer for what you have done now or before”. During this stage of yourself being the master, when you hear in this country of talks of all shades and opinions, that God does everything, understand it in this sense. “Everyone is able to do what he does, subject to the undoing or prohibition by higher authorities.” Under the same electric light, one is stealing valuables from a safe and other is taking out of purse, for handing it over to a charitable institute Secretary. The thief has succeeded in taking out money and  the donor has taken out the purse, both acts being indebted to the electric light. The thief has a serpent bite , and the donor sees before him his son rushing out with a revolver to finish him, if he is going to make him a beggar.

Both are free to act in the manner they like and yet there are some higher powers as well. The man does possess his free will, but it is within certain limits and again subject to circumstances , over which he has little control.

After realisation of the fact, that results are subject to higher control, the next stage for an aspirant should be “Whatever defective , undesirable and undeserved things are done, are done  by me; and whatever good is done by me is due to the promptings of the God ( Mother). ”

The third stage is “Whatever I do, good or bad, all that I do as prompted by God ( Mother). ”

If one has arrived at the third stage by actually wading through varied experiences , by the time he reaches that stage , all evil tendencies and passion have subsided, or even vanished, and it is impossible for him to think or do evil.

If you have honestly reached this stage, when you believe, that everything is done by you on prompting from the God ( Mother), you soon get suspicious about your own wrong thoughts, desires and actions as God ( Mother ) cannot prompt you to do evil things. Evil suggestions and decisions cannot be but yours.

Suppose that you have begun developing the idea that you are merely an instrument and that therefore you have left off censorship of your thoughts and actions, and further suppose that still some undesirable actions pass through your hands. In that case , if you are true to your belief, you have no right to question “why” when you suffer. To claim authorship of whatever good passes through your hands and to believe that the promptings of evil actions are from God ( Mother), and to further claim that you should not suffer for them, on the ground that those promptings are from God ( Mother), is simply unreasonable, unjust, foolish and selfish. If your action is of Her own will, your suffering also is of Her Own Will.

Be either wholly Hers, with cheerful and unconditional surrender to Her divine will, without questioning or hold yourself responsible for whatever happens to you. To reach from the latter inferior stage to the former superior stage ; there is an immediate supreme stage of “All good is Hers, All evil is mine.”

The former belief is that of Sharnagati शरणागती  or Prapatti प्रपत्ती. There you should stop thinking, and be prepared to live enjoy or suffering of God (Mother)’s desires. Say to yourself “Thy will be done.”Even this suffering may have a lofty purpose, which Mother alone knows.” “Mother will do nothing that is not finally for my welfare.” “I am not a true Sharanaagata शरणागत, if I ask why and even if dissatisfied with my lot. On the top of everything be positive and say” My joy is to see Her Divine Will satisfied, and to lay no claim to any concession, exemption or exception, making or raising a complaint of injustice or mercilessness.”

Man is bound in the larger circle and free in the smaller circle. He is given a certain field, certain capacities and certain latitudes and limitations. To give capacities that are much beyond what is possible for every human being to utilize, would be a waste and often a source of burden, repentance, dissatisfaction and misery. How to utilize those capacities, how far to use them or allow them to rest or waste, is the matter of the free will of the man.

What playing cards you get, is a matter beyond your control, and yet if you are a good or a bad player, you often win or lose within certain limits.

Given the same circumstances, it is up to the man, to ascend higher or to descend lower. In that sense he is free. In the sense however strongly he may will, it is impossible for him to go beyond certain limitations, he is bound.

It is just like two sons leaving home with the equal amount of capital, but one returning with rich and the other a pauper.

With the same body, means and intellect, you can be busy with worshipping or breaking a idol. You cannot do either if light or body fails and yet neither the light nor the body is responsible for your worshipping or breaking the idol.

“What you have” is Hers. “How you use is yours”. If you use well, you will be given better “have”s.

Every one of us is under the direct protection and guidance of God

Every one of us is under the direct protection and guidance of God. Our talks of superiority and inferiority are only our prattlings.

God is neither a wrathful tyrant nor a heartless judge nor a jailor. Nor is a God a foreign element.God is a parent, Father or Mother.Preferable not a severe Father but a loving Mother.

God as one Supreme Self of which we are little reflections is a conception that is impracticable to the common man , and is found on minute observation to be the achievement rather than the evolutionary remedy.

Delimit your God as little as possible. The heavier the establishments of mythology, history, traditions, rituals and conventional motions , the more belittled and the more unapproachable and the more narrowed your God is made.

Lalitha Sahasranamam : Names 731 to 750

LALITHA SAHASRANAM ललिता सहस्रनाम  MAI SAHASRANAM माई सहस्रनाम

 

” Mangalaraaja Stava says ,” Where there is worldly enjoyment, there is no salvation; where there is salvation, there is no worldly enjoyment. To the best devotees of Shree Sundari, salvation and enjoyment are both in their hands. They may choose any.” “

731) Priyamkari  प्रियंकरी – Causing affection. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 731

732) Naama-paaraayana-preetaa नामपारायणप्रीता – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 732

733)Nandividyaa नन्दिविद्या – The Service evolutionary path for attaining Mother.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 733

734) Nateshvari नटेश्वरी – She that makes the whole universe dance. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 734

735)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 the cow toy nor the sugar 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 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 Tulsidas 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 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 definition of different words are 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 conclusion of words , 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 with 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 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 it 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.”

736) Muktidaa मुक्तिदा  – Giver of salvation. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 736 The Brahma Puraan says ,” Those who worship Supreme Mother whether regularly or irregularly, are not entangled in worldliness. There is no doubt, they are liberated souls.”

737) Mukti-rupini  मुक्तिरूपिणी – She that is the salvation Herself. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 737 Salvation is not merely removal of ignorance or Avidyaa, but in  a positive way attaining the condition of ever remaining in one’s own bliss. Salvation is therefore in a way, becoming the Absolute self.

738) Laasyapriyaa लास्यप्रिया – Fond of dancing. Female dance is Laasya. Male dance is Taandav.  ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 738

739) Layakari लयकरी – Causing absorption. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 739

Next the whole of his vast possession of the subtlest knowledge, the most valued experience, the most delicate emotions, the most enlightened wisdom and everything as it were is abandoned. A big shopkeeper has in his shop thousands of things, he knows their uses, their values, their sources, their constituents and and all details about each and everything in the shop.But as soon as he receives heavenly mandate  that the queen of the place has accepted him as her son, as the inheritor of Her vast dominion, at a sweep all that knowledge disappears. This Laya stage is described as a peculiar state of mental absorption which is equal to ten meditations.

740) Lajjaa लज्जा – Self-respect sense.  ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 740 Then a stage comes when with all the remembrance, of the contrasts of himself and Her and his doings and Her doings etc., he gets ashamed of himself. He thinks he does not deserve devotee-ship. He gets ashamed of being called a devotee of Mother, at the idea of his unworthiness.His whole heart and soul as it were gets reduced to the smallest atom of the dust of the Mother’s Lotus Feet. He wishes his whole mind, body and heart may get small and small ( of course condensed ) and may form the dust of Mother’s Feet.

741)Rambhaadivanditaa रंभादिवंदिता- All that is infatuating and maddening in celestial damsels like Rambhaa, Urvashi and others , who are deputed to break the penance of a Muni, proceeds from Mother. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 741

742) Bhava-daava-sudhaa-vrishtih भवदावसुधावृष्टिः- The rain of nectar (falling) in the forest fire or worldly existence. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 742

Just the reverse of this, Mother sometimes spreads forest-fire and scatters away all the worldly happiness-giving possessions, conjugal circumstances and conditions, and snatches away the cup of drink which the devotee thinks to be the nectar, but which Mother wishes them to realize to be poison. Bhava means Shiva, or salvation. The word also can be read as Vasudhaa Vrishtih, means bestower of the gift of wealth. Mother is thus the bestower of worldly enjoyment as also the salvation. Mangalaraaja Stava says ,” Where there is worldly enjoyment, there is no salvation; where there is salvation, there is no worldly enjoyment. To the best devotees of Shree Sundari, salvation and enjoyment are both in their hands. They may choose any.”

743 ) Paapaaranya-davaanalaa पापारण्यदवानला -The forest fire consuming the forest of sin. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 743

Dava ( forest-fire ) means devotion also, which is the means of destroying sin. The Brahma Puraan says, ” The supreme expiation of all sin weather committed knowingly  or unknowingly, is said to be the remembrance of the Feet of the Supreme Mother.” The following is quoted from Hindu Scriptures : ” Hear, Oh Devendra, the great supreme secret, which immediately destroys all sin. Possessed of devotion and faith, after purification, stand in solitude, in penitential spirit and repeat the Mother’s sacred name one thousand and eight times. Thus worshipping the supreme Mother any one is released from all sins.”

744) Daurbhaagyatulavaatulaa दौर्भाग्यतूलवाूला  – The gale which blows away the misfortunes like the thistles or tufted seeds of reed. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 744

745) Jaraa-dhvaanta-ravi-prabhaa ज्वराध्वांतरविप्रभा – The sun-beam which dispels the darkness decay. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 745

746 ) Bhaagyaabdhi-chandrikaa  भाग्याब्धिचन्द्रिका -The moon darling of the ocean of good fortune. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 746

The ocean gets  extremely joyful, rich, uncontrolled and ready to give over its every possession, on the rise of the Moon, especially on Full-moon days. Thus once the reflection of moon, i.e., Mother’s devotion rises in the heart, good fortunes gets most impatient to reach and deluge the devotees. According to Hindu Mythology, Moon is one of the fourteen wonders of the universe, that came out of the ocean on being churned by deities and demons. The ocean is the father and moon taken to be the feminine gender is his daughter.

747) Bhakta-chitta-keki-ghanaaghanaa भक्तचित्तकेकिघनाघना – The cloud that nourishes the peacocks, viz., the minds of Her devotees. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 747 Mother so much loves Her devotees, that just to satisfy the thirst of Her devotees, She floods the whole universe with rains. A few drops would have sufficed for a peacock,, but the whole universe is blessed with rains , because it has one peacock. The whole universe is blessed  because She loves Her one devotee staying in that universe. As some say, the world is so full of sins that were it not for the few virtuous persons and saints and devotees and the few chaste women, the world would not have deserved the bounty, it has been enjoying.

748)  Rogaparvatadambholi रोगपर्वतदंभोली – The thunderbolt which shivers the mountain of diseases. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 748

749) Mrityu-daaru-kuthaarikaa मृत्युदारूकुठारिका -The axe that cuts down the tree of death with its pains. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 749

Death here does not mean the physical death of the physical body, but deaths of so many types as ill-fame, poverty, ignorance, lack of self control, defeat, subjugation etc.

750) Maheshvari महेश्वरी- Goddess of Mahesh, i.e., Shiva.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 750 There are two words in the list of names ,viz., Maheshvari and Maaheshvari. One name has proceeded. For Mai-ists, the happy way of understanding distinctions of several names of mother, referring to the relationship of Mother and Shiva, is as under. That power energy of Mother, which has created Brahmaa, Vishnu and Mahesh to be what they are, is Mother energy of theirs. That power or energy which they enjoy, and a result of which, they are able to do their duties and maintain their positions is the Wife energy, where as that power of energy which proceeds to the devotees, on their propitiation, is their daughter energy. The meaning should be taken as  suits the context, but generally all the three conceptions should be before  the mind. Thus the shortest name Maheshi may be taken to mean Mother Energy. Maheshvari may mean Wife Energy  and Maaheshvari may be taken to mean Daughter energy proceeding to the devotees.This difficulty does not arise in case of Vishnu and the name Vaishnavi, in the simplest manner, means the Power of Vishnu, the protecting power, without the complication of the wife or the daughter aspect as in the case of Mahesha. This is so , because Vishnu’s wife has not attained that stage of accepted motherhood for devotees, as Mahesha’s wife Paarvati, as stated in the introduction. Besides taking the innermost view, Vishnu or rather Krishna is more like Mother Herself, in the male form and Mahesha is the highest devotee or worshiper of Mother. While one of the names of Mother is HRIM, that of Vishnu is Hari. Between  Mahesh and Vishnu, the former is manlike or husband like and the latter womanlike or wife-like. While reading this remark, which contains view corroborated some times in scriptures and traditions, it should not be forgotten, that under Maiism, husband means the worshiper and wife the wholesale self-sacrificer. A Mai-ist should never harbor any idea of superiority or inferiority between the husband and wife, or the worshipped and worshiper. EXTRACT FROM THE BOOK : MOTHER & MOTHER’S THOUSAND NAMES

MOTHER NEVER FAILS TO DO WHAT IS BEST IN THE INTEREST OF HER DEVOTEES

DIVINE MOTHER
UNIVERSAL DIVINE MOTHER MAI

Once it becomes a conviction that it is Mother and Mother’s Grace that gives or does a certain work, the whole outlook is entirely changed. There is no marketing, no mechanical doing of something, somehow, leading us somewhere, no bargaining with the deity, no chasing and no cheating.“YOUR’S IS TO PRAY, AND IT IS HER WILL TO GRANT OR NOT”. At every step in this life, there is some difficulty of illness, affliction, poverty, painfulness, etc.

How long to wonder and how often to break one’s head and empty one’s purse, in the search of almost a mirage!!! Mai-ism says “miseries will be endless”. Make yourself proof to them. Seek Grace, pray without  despondency in case the prayers are not heard. Practise living cheerfully, with the spirit of self-surrender, in any circumstances. Further as a result of grant of the request, a devotee does not get deluded as a Siddha (if at all there is any), because he does not consider himself to be the giver or the worker. Unnecessary fuss and bossing due to a little better knowledge of rituals or sacred word has no dancing platform.  MOTHER NEVER FAILS, TO DO WHAT IS BEST IN THE INTEREST OF HER DEVOTEES, ON PRAYING TO FOR RELIEF.
Readers would not rest satisfied till they know, if this theory is supported by practical experience, and I may reply to them. There are experiences, which would take volumes to narrate, of prayers by devotees that have been heard by Mother.” I am not talking of old grand-mothers tales or hearsay’s and rumors of some Bhaktaas (devotees) in past. I am referring to the experiences of myself, as great an atheist as any of you, who wants things to be proved to him, as in a civil court, supported by ample outside independent evidence.

Lalitha Sahasranam : Names 711 to 730

LALITHA SAHASRANAM MAI SAHASRANAM
711) Saadhu  साधु – She that helps Her devotees to lead the life of saintliness.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 711
After attainment of purity, one has not to hurry himself in a secluded corner, thinking of his own salvation but to spread saintliness by living example of one’s self. Saadhu means ” well done.

712 ) E ई – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 712

713) Guru-mandala-rupini गुरूमण्डलरूपिणी – In the shape of assemblage or collection or conference of spiritual teachers. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 713

This word conveys universality. Mother is not simply Guru-murti but Guru-mandala-rupini as well. The evil of well-froggism that follows as result of considering Guru as God is here warned against.She is the collection of all the Gurus. It is foolish to consider that one’s own Guru is  a diamond and those of others are stones.

In the matter of one’s own Guru, religion and worshipped God aspect, the understanding  must be very subtle. The advantage of concentration on one’s own select should not be lost on one hand and there should not be well froggism on the other. This is a difficult  position which few are able to achieve. You must be devoted to your own and yet revere others . It is foolish to wipe out distinctions and yet it is necessary to broaden the outlook. To say, “everything is same ” is talk of a fool who is simply a talker or one who is too much afraid least a quarrel or some bitterness may ensue.

To give an idea of routine life, it should be just as in a joint family of an old papa with several sons . Each of the sons’ wives acts equally well to all the sons in all matters except one, viz., the matrimonial heart to heart relation. So a devotee has to behave with respect to his own God and Guru and those of others. All are the shareres of the whole property but the master of oneself, one’s heart and one’s love in One alone.

714) Kulottirnaa कुलोत्तीर्णा – Transcending all senses. She that by Her Grace raises Her devotees beyond the influence of senses.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 714

715) Bhagaaraadhyaa भगाराध्या – She that is worshipped through the Sun. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 715
The next common form of worship through the Sun by Gaayatri गायत्री which is considered to be the highest Mantra for granting purity, true knowledge and miraculous powers.
716)Maayaa माया – Illusion-creator. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 716
The energy which obscures what is plain. She causes marvellous actions, producing unheard of results, like dreams, miracles or juggleries. At one moment the universe looks flooded, at another it appears desert-like dry. Once the moon is bright Full Moon, next the same is dark New Moon. The destroyer becomes inits turn again the destroyed.This is the Maayaa of the universe. Maayaa of humanity is previously explained. Mother is Mahaa Maayaa, i.e., juggler even to Maayaa, in the matter of Her devotees. This has been explained. Maayaa tries to delude the devotees, but Mother deludes Maayaa, making Her think, that She would be successful,but, in the end Maayaa a humiliating defeat.

717) Madhumati मधुमती – Honey or Mead-like. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 717
Mother gives to Her devotees, the sweetness of honey. They become themselves honey-like for others and enjoy the highest honey themselves. The relation between the devotees and universe will be that of  giving and taking of honey and the relation between the devotee and Mother Herself will be that of mead-drunken madness.

718) Mahi मही – Earth.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 718
719) Ganaambaa गणाम्बा – Mother worshipped by Ganesh, who is emblem of determination and discrimination.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 719

720) Guhyakaaraadhyaa गुह्यकाराध्या – Worshipped in an unknown secret place and in an unknown secret manner. When love is established between Mother and the devotee, none knows how and where he worships Her. This is so because the devotees’ worship is not of a particular type and particular form, in a particular place with particular materials and in a particular condition. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 720

Because he had dispensed with all accessories of worship and rituals.

When other thinks he is playing and enjoying, he may be actually worshipping Mother internally. If devotion is ripened to Love, that love will always proceeded with and developed and enjoyed most secretly, with entirely different appearances and even apparent disregard for Mother and Mother worship.

721) Komalaangi कोमलांगी-Slender limbed. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 721

722) Gurupriyaa गुरूप्रिया – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 722

And Mother’s greatest joy lies in the senior brother’s holding the hand of the junior brother and leading him into light, to peacefulness from tempestuousness

723) Svatantraa स्वतन्त्रा  – Independent. It is also conveyed that all the Tantras are Hers.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 723

724)Sarvatantreshi सर्वतन्त्रेशी – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 724

Ruler of all the success and master of the secrets of scriptures dealing with the practices and paths of devotion.

725) Dakshinaa-murti-roopini दक्षिणामूर्तिरूपिणी – In the form of Dakshinaa-murti. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 725

Dakshinaamurti दक्षिणामूर्ति  is the name given to Shiva to commemorate the most wonderful teaching He gave to Brahmaaब्रहमा , Naaraayan नारायण , Sanak सनक , Sanaatan सनातन and others while sitting with face southward. It is the most well-known Stotra स्तोत्र. The marvelousness about it was that the divine knowledge was given without a single word in the most through manner which dispelled all doubts about the most knotty problems of universe, soul and God and where the disciples(Shishyaasशिष्य) were the oldest universally worshipped wisest beings and the Master(Guru) was an extremely handsome young being.
This name suggests the idea that this knowledge was so wonderfully given, because it was Mother who did the work in the form of Shiva शिव as Dakshinaa-Murti दक्षिणामूर्ति .
This is a unique case where the supremely divine knowledge was given not through the tongue, not through touch, not through glance exchange, not through presence, but through of Mother. I say “not through presence,” because Mother was not present as Mother.  This is an instance of the highest type of Mother’s Grace. Grace suggests the idea of  its not depending on the worthiness of the person whom the Grace is showered but resulting from the greatness of the Gracious.

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

728) Chitkalaa चित्कला – The energy of consciousness residing in the minds of all embodied souls.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 728

729) Ananda-kalikaa आनंदकलिका-Bliss-Bud.

The bliss that the devotees and the whole humanity enjoys is but an infinitesimal part of this bliss. ललितासहस्रनामस्तोत्र,नाम क्रमांक 729

730) Premarupaa प्रेमरूपा -Image of affection. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 730

Love is mighty, mysterious, most popular and yet most misunderstood word. Through over cautiousness about the abuse, this word has been extremely seldom used by writers of Hindu Scriptures.

Mother’s Universal Religion says “Love All”.  Leave off every thing. Practise this and this alone, ” Serve All” is only an amplification of Love. Automatically godliness will dawn. Then begin loving God as well. Sacrifice and Cheerful Unconditional Self surrender are also mere amplifications of Love.

Sublimation of Love secures a salvation.

Lalitha Sahasranamam Names 701 to 710

701) 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.

702 ) Sarvagaa  सर्वगा – Omnipresent.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तो., नाम क्रमांक 702

703) Sarva-mohini सर्वमोहिनी – All-bewildering. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 703
How can be Mother said to possess contradictory attributes such as permanence and impermanence, animation and non-animation, etc. ? This name answers the above question. She bewilders (Mohini) all the ordinary people (Sarva), who believe in the reality of the  apparent duality.The apparent difference between Mother and the souls and the universe is illusory.
Sinful men devoid of Mother’s grace, bewildered and suffering birth and death, etc., do not know Mother.

704) Saraswati सरस्वती –  Goddess of Learning, music and fine arts. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र ,नाम क्रमांक 704
This and the following names are more closely related to Mother, as Learning and Scriptures.

Saraswati presides over knowledge and it is an ocean of knowledge. The name also means possessor. Vati of Saras, i.e., the stream of sense-impressions. She is supposed to be residing on the tongue of Her devotees. She imparts knowledge to Her devotees, but that is always parrotic knowledge. It is only when there is Divine Grace of the Finalmost Mother, that the true knowledge with its bliss and power dawns. Very often the knowledge given by Saraswati, unaccompanied with Mother’s Grace, turns out to be one that bewilders. Such knowledge delude others, in the first instance, by its dazzling glamour and then the possessor of such knowledge , themselves.
Persons devoid of Divine grace get confused, and the knowledge of non-duality, with the practice of love , service, devotion and self-surrender, which removes all sorrows, remains for ever concealed from them, although they are extremely learned. Scriptures also labyrinth. One who  enter  therein once , does not find his way out, unless he constantly  keeps his eyes set, on the Directing Mother and strictly follows Her instructions, without any interference of his own will and wisdom and with full faith. Scriptures should not be studied, without simultaneously doing all the needful, to be continuously under the showering of Her Grace.

It is Grace , that makes all difference.Rain water is only distilled sea water and most of the wholesome and pleasant dish, is only a mixture of several ingredients, cooked together. It is grace that fulfills the distilling and the cooking process.

705) Shaastramayi शास्त्रमयी – She, that is one with scriptures. or She whose different limbs are scriptures.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 705
From Her breath, often through Her realised devotees, mantras and truths are recorded in the scriptures originate, though often understood or misunderstood. from Her words, flow poetry and dramatic speech. From Her throat proceed medicine and archery and from her heart, love and devotion deluge.
What is meant is that scriptures or scriptural portions which refer to mantras and truths , poetry and dramatic speech, love and devotion, are all from Her and by Her Grace.

706) Guhaambaa गुहाम्बा –The Mother in the cavity of heart.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 706
This cavity of heart may receive and harbour light as also shadow and this is dependent on Mother’s Grace.
707) Guhyarupini गुह्यरूपिणी-The secret. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 707

All the ordinary ideas of duality etc., are only true for time, but non duality is ever true. This non-duality is most secret ( Guhyaa ) not perceivable by ordinary vision, like space and light.We adore Mother who assumes the form of the Guru, and of the main secret, and is the secret knowledge. We prostrate to Her, who is beloved by Her secret devotees residing in secret places.Among the Upanishads of Mother there is one that is called the Guhyopanishad. Mother’s path is described as secret of secrets.

708) Sarvopaadhi-vinirmuktaa  सर्वोपाधिविनिर्मुक्ता –Free from all limitations. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 708

She is neither one nor many, neither male nor female, neither qualified nor unqualified, neither personal nor impersonal. She is both or She is none.She is above limitations. She is what She likes to be. (Please read introduction). From ordinary vision, She is multi-fold. From highest experience, She is one and one alone.

709) Sadaashiva-pativrataa सदाशिवपतिव्रता The devoted spouse of Sadaashiva. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 709

710) Sampradaayeshvari संप्रदायेश्वरी –Fount and protector of traditional wisdom. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 710
Sampradaaya is the wisdom, regularly imparted by the teachers to the disciple; Ishvari means ruler. Knowledge is gained by reasoning, through traditions, faith in Guru and intuition. Mother tries to see, that so long as a particular school of religion with certain beliefs and practices of the divine path to reach Her, is not tented with vice of greed, adultery, hypocrisy etc, it progresses with Her full help and blessings. The secret of success of the initiation ceremony and rituals should be , the intense devotion with which the Guru requests Mother to create a replica of all his powers, knowledge and wisdom to be conferred on the disciple. When however the Guru becomes the usurper of God’s powers and the Guru’s homages, when he gets deluded that that powers belong to and vest in himself, and when disciples attach more importance to rituals then to the actual faith and devotion (in and to God and Guru), the whole institute becomes a soul like skeleton. Further as by several leakages by vices the joints get loose, the whole frame work begins to crack, the vitality gradually vanishes, and the whole body begins to give a stinking smell like corpse, and the whole institute finally gives way, by its own weight of sinfulness and weakness of perverted notions , ignorance and meaningless mechanical practices.

By Mother’s Grace, as soon as one institute gets too old, another is brought into being. Mother is concerned with keeping up the religiosity of the universe and not with the superiority and inferiority of a particular institute or religion or the fame of an individual founder. That fighting and quarreling is all man made and meaningless and by half baked people, bigots or fools.
