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.
