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 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.

913) Sarva-apadvi-nivaarini सर्वापद्विनिवारिणी -Remover of all misfortunes. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 913
This name proceeds to show that, even if one falls while following one path or another, Mother removes all misfortunes. by compassion, on hearing them repeating Her sacred names. This is true , even in cases of those who have fallen as a result of wrongly following the Vaama Path and have already sunk into the most miserable state. It is true even of those who knowingly or unknowingly have misunderstood Her religion and even abused it.
The idea is, once you have enrolled yourself as a Maiist with the belief of God as Mother, and the whole universe being Her family, and the belief of securing your welfare by Universal Love, Universal Service, Devotion to Mother with unconditional self surrender, even though you may be deluded into hundreds of complications , and are pulled and plunged into viciousness, you will be saved as soon as the remembrance about your original belief, life maxim, and devotion with unconditional cheerful self surrender to Mai, returns.
This name is suggestive of Reclamation by Her on Repentance.
In the Kurma Puraan a reference is made thus, “Those who, forsaking attachment, take refuge in Me, and ever worship me with devotion, who have compassion on all beings , who are tranquil, self-controlled, free from envy, humble ,wise, ascetic, and who keep their minds fixed on Me , and live in Me, and delight in outspreading My mercy and glory, are blessed. It is immaterial , who and what they are. Their darkest ignorance , it is I who dispels “. Still further Mother states, ” Those who are devoid of the above stated characteristics , but repeat my name, and are devoted to me , are blessed. I quickly destroy their misfortune, their Karmikc liability and sinfulness, even though in heaps and mountains, by the lamp of wisdom and fire of Grace, in the same birth”.
In Harivansha, Vishnu says to mother, “The misery of men proceeds from death, difficulty, separation of relations, loss of wealth,etc. In all these misfortunes, it is Thou alone who protects.”
In Varraha Puraana Brahmaa says,”O Mother, for Those who attain, Thy Supreme refuge , no misfortunes or dangers arise. The wise also know the remedy, as to what should be done in misfortune . it is that one should remember the Lotus feet of the Mother.”
“What does that remembrance do ?” ” It makes even Brahmaa and other deities to help him, and completely fulfil all his desires , as Mother’s Servants to the new surrender”.

914)  Swasthaa स्वस्था – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 914
Abiding in Her own Majesty. How is Mother ? She is in Her own majesty as ever, even in the battle field. She is not disturbed or anxious as to the result or agitated due to the arrows from the demons, etc. All these things appearing to others , as the matter for the most terrible consternation are to Her merely a  sport only of a different nature.
It must not be forgotten that all such names are to be interpreted as indirectly referring to the devotees. Substitute “She whose devotees” for “She” and “Her devotees” for “Her” etc., as suites the context.

915) Svabhaava-madhuraa स्वभावमधुरा – Sweet natured.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 915

916) Dheeraa धीरा- Possessor of endurance and power in the battle-field. Dhi धी also means knowledge of non-duality and raa रा means giver. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 916
917) Dhira-samarchitaa धीरसमर्चिता – Adored by the patience-Masters. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 917
This is the further requirement of the aspirant, in addition to the right understanding and ceaseless effort. Patience is the quality of remaining uninfluenced, and being able to maintain one’s equilibrium, in spite of the most humiliating repeated failures, discomforts, happenings of disagreeable nature, miseries and pains etc.
Those that are true devotees, have a faith, which enables them to keep up their patience and cheerfulness, to the last. One of them has said ;-
“Raise me Mother to the ruler-ship of the whole universe; or throw me in the darkest hell; it is impossible for Thee, to make me severed from my ceaseless effort, to ever remain in the Refuge of Thy Lotus Feet.”

918) Chaitanyaarghya-samaa-raadhyaa  चैतन्यार्घ्यसमाराध्या – She is to be worshipped by the Arghya अर्घ्य means water mixed with holy substance for dedication to Mother. This Arghya should be your own mentality, your own consciousness. It should be Arghya; your mentality should be liquefied and not hard as solid. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 918
The Arghya अर्घ्य  must be flavoured with eight holy substances. First non-injury, second sense-restraining, third pity, fourth compassion, fifth wisdom, sixth penance, seventh truth and eighth meditation.

919) Chaitanya-kusuma-priyaa चैतन्यकुसुमप्रिया – She is fond of Chaitanya flower. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 919

This means that Mother is fond of hearts as soft, delicate, sweet and fragrant as flowers. Some narrate the above stated eight substances as flowers, but penance and sense-restraining and wisdom are unfortunately substances too hard to justify being called flowers. I therefore prefer a little departure.
The idea underlying this word is that having gone through penance and sense-restraining practices,etc., if the devotee turns cynic or hateful to others or looks upon the universe with an attitude of displeasure, disappointment or dissatisfaction, He is still immature.
According to Mother’s Ideal he who has a hatred towards ignorance, passion, wickedness, cruelty and other evils of the universe is still Katchaa  कच्चा (immature). Evil must not remain as evil to him. When everything is joy creative, when nothing but good remains, then it is that Mother is fully pleased.
She is pleased with the flower of the soul of Her devotee. Devotee must not be austere-looking or getting boisterous at the evils of the universe, etc.
The higher meaning full of devotional ecstasy is that She is pleased by simply looking at the sweet flower-like (chaitnya – चैतन्य ) face of Her devotees. As a Mother the very fact that Her devotee is happy is enough to make Her happy, without any other expectation of  service or worship or return of any kind from the devotee.
When a man is in a foreign country the Mother passes anxious days for his return.When he returns, the very sight that he has come hale and hearty is more than enough to drown the Mother in an ecstasy of joy. She is pleased only with the fact that he has returned lively (alive), for which the son deserves no credit. Mother’s heart says,” Harass me remaining alive, but do not relieve me by dying.” Chaitanya चैतन्य  means life, livingness

. 920) Sadoditaa सदोदिता –  Ever alert to run to the succour of Her devotees.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 920

921) Sadaatushtaa सदातुष्टा – Ever contended.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 921

922) Taruna-aditya-paatalaa तरूणादित्यपाटला – Rosy like the morning Sun. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 922
Mother assumes different colours according to the form under which She is contemplated.
When She confers Grace for the attainment of salvation She becomes white in colour. In Her aspects as controlling men, women or kings, She becomes red in colour. In Her aspect of controlling wealth, She becomes saffron colour, while creating enmity, She is tawny-coloured and while She is in the action of slaying enemies, She is black.In Her love towards Her devotees, She is rosy.
923) Dakshinaa-dakshinaaraadhyaa  दक्षिणादक्षिणाराध्या -Pleased by offerings to foresighted men, who live a strict religious life, with the goal of spreading divine knowledge amongst people.
This name has several interpretations according as DAKSHINAA दक्षिणा and ADAKSHINAA अदक्षिणा convey different senses , viz., (a) Right and Left Path worshippers (b) tactful and tactless (c) clever in securing happiness through scriptures ordained  and desire-fulfilling religious ceremonial  actions (karma-maargis), and through others than those, and (d) capable of giving charities and poor.        name 923
924) Dara-smera-mukha-ambujaa दरस्मेरमुखांबुजा –  Whose lotus face is wreathed with sweet smiles. The smiles are observable through eyes and Her conch-shell-like transparent neck.  ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 924
Dara दर means the conch-shell and Smera स्मेर means shining . Her face shins like a white conchsell , or Her neck resembles the formation of conchshell and is so transparent, that Her smile appears both in the face , the eyes and the neck. Further, Dara दर also means fear. She whose devotee’s face is always shining even in times of fear. At the time of the final dissolution, while the faces of others go pale, those of Her refugees and devotees are smiling.

925) Kaulini-kevalaa कौलिनीकेवला – She that is worshipped by Kaulas, i.e., by people of the Vaama Maarga as “Thee and Thou alone.” ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 925
As stated here-before and hereafter there is the school of Kaulaas which dispenses with every elaborate method and lays its claim by direct full self-surrender. Primarily, from the point of worship there is internal and external worship. The worshipers of the internal variety are the Samayaa-Chaarins and those of the external type are the Kaulas.

They say,”Whatever is needful and appropriate will be done by Mother in Her own ordained time, manner, mode and form. Our work is done as soon as we have renounced ourselves to Her.” Thus Samayaachaar is more or less like Vedic or Right Path. In the Kaulaachaar there appear various sub-classifications as Shakti Maarga and Vaama Maarga.

926) Anarghya-kaivalya-pada-daayini अनर्घ्यकैवल्यपददायिनी – Giver of the abode of priceless salvation.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 926
927 ) Stotra-preeyaa स्तोत्रप्रिया – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 927
928) Stuti-mati स्तुतिमती – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तो., नाम क्रमांक 928

She that is pleased by continued repetition of Her name, Hymn or Prayer.

Righteous living, goodness, happiness-conferring and fragrance-spreading have been spoken about. Righteousness and goodness are no doubt most admirable requirements for being happy but they are only the entrance gates of religiosity. Many more things are required to be happy and that is because every one does not act  righteously. Just the reverse of it, the righteous man is generally most crushed because he offers least resistance and is of a harmless and forgiving nature . The world’s way is to curse the good man for not being better and to thank the bad man for not being worse, as only that way one’s self interest is best served. In this world there are many unknown and uncontrollable forces and happenings and therefore in addition to goodness and righteousness, one needs the Grace of Controller of the Universe.

“Being good”, is conveyed in the first requirement of  Mother’s Ideals, viz., “Love All”. It includes the requirement of  a good and superior heart but goodness will remain barren unless it is translated into action. This is conveyed in the second requirement, viz., “Serve All.” Love without service is unfruitful. It has not the material substance to keep the flame ablaze.Service without love does not bring bliss to the server or the served. Thus Love and Service should go together.Further even service with love or love with service is found to be not enough for being happy. We than acquaintance with higher happiness  which laughs at all kinds of little happiness that this world can give . Hence “Devotion to Mother,” is the third requirement which we are dealing with here. The third requirement means “Be the pet child of the Controller of the Universe.”

Mother is pleased by frequent repetition of Her names which is the simplest method of securing Her Grace. This must be done without any idea of prohibitions of time, place, manner and even bodily condition.

Repetition must be practiced till your tongue becomes so accustomed that it will go on doing its work without physical exhaustion, exertion and even consciousness, just as some have the habit of unconscious leg-shaking. One devotee says ,” Oh tongue, why I have flattered and flattened thee with most dainty dishes !! Why, if it is not with the hope that thou will not prove faithless, and will not fail to save me by repetition of Mother’s sacred name !!

She is further pleased by stotras, which mean age-borne popular hymns and psalms.

She is further pleased by  Stuti Mati स्तुतिमती , which means the mentality (Mati – मती) to feel grateful for whatever good is found and happens and to offer prayers  of thanks-giving for the same.

937) Viraagini विरागिणी – Dispassionate.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 937

Vairaagya is relishlessness about pleasures of all kinds. There are different varieties.Some temporary, as in burning places or hospitals or after delivery.Some as a reaction of a great indulgence as after heavy food. Some as result of shuddering picture of the evil consequences , as when a young girl hates being married, having seen some unhappy pairs.
Some have the parrot like emotional Vairaagya  which needs only as occasion and opportunity to disappear.
Some have a Vairaagya as a result of despondency of getting pleasures.
Eliminating, however, all classes, real relishlessness also divides itself in two classes, viz., relishlessness with a feeling of displeasure  and hatred towards the other objects of pleasures and relishlessness, with the feeling of total indifference.
The first is Taamas Vairaagya. You run away from pleasures and biting your lips say,”The wicked world.”

When you call the world wicked, there is unconscious feeling of “Unlike myself.” The intensity of wickedness you speak of is often proportional to the superhuman  idea you have about yourself.
The Saattvik Vairaagya is seen in that you not only renounce all the pleasures but you get relishlessness about yourself enjoying the unique position and being above relishlessness. Then you never speak of wicked and rotten world etc.

Her first work is therefor to remove wrong understanding and beliefs, debasing desires and so on. She prepares the minds of the devotees to enable them to know and see Her.
