About visualizations of deities,God as Mother Names 641 to 650

LALITHA SAHASRANAMललिता सहस्रनाम  MAI SAHASRANAM माई सहस्रनाम

About the visualizations of deities

641) Dhyaan-gamyaa ध्यानगम्या – Perceivable by meditation. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 641

Mother who is otherwise hidden is fully seen in Dhyaana ध्यान  or meditation.
By constant praises and thinking about Mother, there comes a stage when all other senses close their relations with other objects of their pleasures and emerge in this one object, viz., Mother. When all senses thus withdrawn from their respective other objects concentrate in Mother, it is meditation and in that condition She is most visibly seen.

As during my experiences of others about the visualizations of deities  and about the imagined religiosity which is most exaggeratedly believed to have been attained on the only basis of such visibility , I have seen so many misunderstandings, I wish to deal with this subject at length here.

There is meeting of friends, every one of whom says he has an elephant. Every one is almost proud and satisfied that he is the possessor of an elephant, but they are benighted and there is no conveyance to return home. In the meanwhile one of them who was silent says,” Oh, my elephant has come. Come on and I will give lift to you and leave you one by one at your homes.” The fact was that everyone had an elephant. None was wrong, but one had a paper elephant, another had a cardboard one, still another had an ebonite one, and so on. Only one had a real living useful elephant.

There are many who having some visualization of some sort get deluded that they have reached the proximity of salvation and that this is their last life. I have met so many.The most pitiable misunderstanding !!

One may have a wonderful visualization but Maai-ist must judge evolution BY A  REFERENCE  TO WHAT HE IS. You see in your solitude a figure of any deities, but you are wrathful, greedy, anxious, full of desires, your faculties are not of the highest type, you are not attractive, you have so many enemies, your conclusions are not correct and your forecast of future do not turn out to be correct. You must in that case conclude that there is something wrong about your visions.

You cannot reach Mother or see Mother, unless you are one of the highest souls  with no desires, all readiness to sacrifice , constant remembrance of Mother, high purity, high transparency and great wisdom as to the best way of dealing with and addressing others, etc.

Your having actually seen some deity figure is not denied, but how far that happening means that you are nearer to God or salvation must be judged, more by the permanent conditions of your acquisitions, attainments and developments and righteousness in your living the daily life , than by the mere experience of some vision.

Visualization arises from several sources : – (1) It is simply a thought of mind that creates an impression of your having seen, just as several arrangements of clouds in the sky some figure is sometimes imagined and seen at a certain moment. (2) By still greater intensity and continued thinking and the seeing of a certain conception for a long time a figure is sometimes seen, just as children see something in the dark without there being anything. Numbers 1 and 2 are only mind’s makings. (3) Next, by powerful intensity of thoughts, certain elements in the ether are being drawn together and you have the sight. This is an ethereal vision.(4) There are some invisible mischievous spirits who assume the form of the deity and derive frolic by seeing how the deluded man begins to dance , thinking that he is one of the highest souls who have got Saakshaatkaar साक्षात्कार   (direct vision) of God. (5) Next some really good and religious, invisible angelic helper, taking pity on the person pining away for proof of existence or Darshana दर्शन (sight), consoles him and encourages him in his devotion by appearing as a deity. (6) Then comes the deputation of some one by the deity to console and encourage and assist, who appears  as the deity. (7) Then comes the one of the invisible disembodied principal devotees of the particular deity (8) Then comes one of the principal actual companions, and constant adherent of the deity and lastly (9) the deity Herself or Himself.

A vision is seen, but that is no proof of the proximity of salvation or deity’s home. It may fall in any of the above nine varieties  which I have enumerated.Which class the vision belongs to, should be judged, as stated above, by one’s own personal self-analysis.

Number (4) is generally very common; sometimes such spirits who are opposed to general religiosity play the mischief and stop the further religious progress by creating the feeling of enoughness.

There are limitations and realities, Judge them by where and what you are. Do not get deluded away. Distinguish between mental, ethereal, spiritual and godly visions.

One way of judging what class the vision belongs to, in addition to the general self-analysis is to see after effects and after conditions. If you are over-powered with a feeling of ecstasy, the feeling of being perfected, being much better than what you were, feeling that you have nothing more to wish or love for, there is a reason to believe the vision to be of  a superior class. You feel you should have vision again and again. The other clue is to see how much of whatever is said  or spoken by the vision figure comes out to be true. Judge the plane of purity which such speech proceeds. Decide the strength of sublimity and sanctity of the speech and emotion and knowledge during the vision. 

Have a very correct analysis of what you are, how you live and what you do. Your vision can not be above what your plane is . If you are a true disciplined disciple , Gurus appear. If you are a devotee, devotees appear.If you are a world-worm with a little hypo-critic appearance of religiosity and doing something here and there , ordinary spirits appear. If you are entirely uncared for  and do not know your way out from a calamity, sometimes your dead relation and friend spirits appear.

The fact is that the way is Infinite. Best that has been said till now by way of instructions by the best people and best founders of all religions is but the first furlong formula. It is useful only for the first furlong of the long, long unknown infinite way. Let people be happy with their respective elephants according to their maximum conceptions. Do not discourage them or break their heavens. Let all be happy by Mother’s Grace.

It is not that the Infinite way is made through by the struggling soul. He is himself unable to explain, record or even know how he reaches the goal. It is Mother and Mother’s Grace that lifts him up and places him at or on the Goal.

All talk of wisdom of ” Do this and do not do that ” except Mother’s Grace is mere prattling. It is good in it’s own sphere, and many times much better than nothing or the reverse thing, but nothing beyond it.

A multi-millionaire thrusts himself suddenly into the house of his poorest friend and says,” My Rolls Royce is waiting. I am going to Mahabaleshwar महाबळेश्वर. Send one of your children  with me.” He is extremely quick. He turns his eyes and says,” Yes come on,Bhaktiprasad.” Catches Maai-sharan, drags Premsvarup, beckons Sevak and puts them all in the car. The car is off in a moment before other children think or even father replies.

Dear reader !! I am very free with thee and much out of the way. The above explains what the Mother’s Grace is . It is not the children that go to Mahabaleshwar. What each child’s part in the achievement is its purity, amiability and cheerfully self-surrendering mentality. A neatly dressed, happy looking, contended, lovely, serving, obedient, individuality-submerged child.

Be Mother’s child. It is not possible for you to wade through the Infinite  unknown way. Mother will take you. You only remain prepared with best though little you have.

Reduce your own individuality. Love, service, devote and surrender . The best musician that visits you will take in his lap the worthless hand harmonium in preference to the most costly one, if the latter though with supreme tunes has one tune of itself, which will go on sounding whether the player wants it or not.

Be prepared to be dealt with by Mother in any way She likes you; you will be the first to be in Her lap for being played with.

Resign yourself to Her. Try to the extent you can.

642) Aparichhedyaa अपरिच्छेद्या – Unlimited as to place, time and law of causation. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 642

643 ) Jnaanadaa ज्ञानदा – Bestower of knowledge. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 643

That knowledge which causes modifications of the feeling of joy and sorrow to rise inwardly and outwardly towards sensual objects and which develops a network of dualities and which ensnares a man, is called knowledge leading to bondage. One who is bound by this bondage , is forever in the samsaara संसार (worldliness), and a worldworm, living and dying in bondage. Mother in the bestower of knowledge which is reverse of this knowledge.

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

Jnaana ज्ञान alone is the supreme liberator, Jnaana ज्ञान 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.

645) Sarva-vedanta-samvedyaa सर्ववेदांतसंवेद्या – Known through all the Vedanta वेदांत ,as the final end. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 645

646) Satyaanandasvarupini सत्यानंदस्वरूपिणी – Who is the ideal of truth and bliss.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 646
True joy which is not the joy experienced  by worldly people, proceeds from full understanding of life, Universe and Mother and full self-control and self-surrender to Mother’s Divine Will.

647) Lopaa-mudra-architaa लोपामुर्द्रार्चिता –Worshiped as by Lopaamudraa.   ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 647

It may be noted that whatever is stated immediately above is more or less for an individual. Either the desultory progress in the ordinary God fearing usual life, or knowledge or acquisition or practising virtues or trying to regulate mental brain stuff. They all indicate individual efforts and actions.

Next we come to what is done in home life or family life. Here the sense may be taken to be that of worshipping and progressing in the manner of a respectful high class strictly religious family life, say by observances suggested for the householder’s life. Lopaamudraa लोपामुद्रा  was , as is often previously stated, the wife of the great Muni Agastya अगस्त्य .
This path includes so many methods of making a slow and steady progress. Vows as Navaraatra नवरात्र, Satya- Naaraayana सत्यनारायण , Poornimaa Vrata पोर्णिमा व्रत, fasting, daily idol worship, Sandhyaa संध्या , temple-going, pilgrimage, charity, saint-service, religious-place-living, Scripture hearing and remembering , supporting Pandits पंडीत and Shaastris शास्त्री , digging wells, constructing dhamashaalaas धर्मशाळा  , all this come under this head.

648) Lilaa-klrippta-brahmaanda-mandalaa – लीलाक्लृप्तब्रह्माण्डमंडला –Who formed the world systems as it were in sport. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 648

Devi stava says,” That is done without effort. Even Shiva is powerless to create, preserve or destroy, but Oh ! Mother, the regulation of the universe is but sport to you. Thou art manifesting the universe in Thyself, at Thou own will.”
649) Adrishyaa अदृश्या – Invisible.ललिता सहस्रनाम सस्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 649
It requires Her Grace to be able to see Her working and Her Hand, in the working of the universe and the dispensations, rewards and punishments, awarded to individuals. The proverb runs ” God’s stick has no sound. “
Mother is invisible and it is this invisibility which has been instrumental to her sportivity. It requires many lives before Mother becomes visible to the ordinary man, even in so far as the meaning of visibility may be taken as only admitting Her existence. Next, to some few of these to whom She is visible as existence , She becomes visible as the unfailing enforcer of Karmic Law and the Restorer of Righteousness. To a few of these She becomes visible as Reliever of distresses through devotion. To a few of these when they desist from desiring any favoures , She becomes visible in dreams. When devotees desire nothing in addition to loving Her passionately, She becomes visible in physical form, just as exceptional circumstances of life. When the devotee day and night remembers Her with repetition of names, She is visible to him as residing within himself. When everything else about the universe disappears She becomes visible to the devotee as “He himself “.
When the Founder was in Communion with Mother and became unconscious on the repetition of the Mantra Jay Maai, the couplet that brought him to consciousness was this : MAIYAA, MAIYAA, MAIYAA, KARAKE AAPHI MAIYAA HO GAYAA .- Repeating Mother, Mother, Mother, he himself become Mother. Such is the divine Mother. Once you see Her in any sense of visibility, there is a lift of many lives.

650) Drishyarahitaa दृश्यरहिता  – She is invisible and every time She sportively tries to deceive the devotees by trying to create the false notion that his successes are due to his own efforts, chances or some other persons or other deities. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 650

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.

A Mai-ist must always remember this secret. ” By disgrace and censure by others, the penance of the devotees is increased. Whereas by adulation, service and worship by others, the penance  is destroyed. If you jump at the immediate little return, you loose the highest supreme return.”

Mai-istic instructions for the relief of Misery ( Part 1 )

 

I wish to disclose some sacred Mai-istic instructions for the relief of Misery, which has been imparted to me by our beloved Founder Maiji, Maai Swarupa Maai-Markandji.

Miseries of illness occur by way of painful reactions of certain causes in the physical body and the working capacities of mind etc. The most apparent physical trouble, illness or disorder is due to the disregard or ignorance of the general rules or precautions which govern the working of the body and the mind. With the advance of medical science aids and cures are fortunately now available. However these facilities resulting from scientific discoveries are counter-balanced by the high cost of medicine and other difficulties. As a result, in spite of claims on the advancement of civilization and other scientific progress, the total number of suffering persons have increased considerably. This is evidenced by the impartial, unflattering opinions expressed fearlessly everywhere.

On innumerable occasions the divine aid has been experienced as marvellously useful in relieving miseries at so many quarters all around the world. It is unfortunate that our Indian brothers are too idle to pursue any enquiries in this direction in a true scientific manner and ascertain facts on the basis of first-hand information and direct evidence. It is still more unfortunate that there are very few interested in spreading the truth of their experiences in divine aid and knowledge in a humanitarian missionary spirit.

The result is the two extreme beliefs on the subject, both conclusions being arrived at without any serious thought, enquiries or personal experiences. One is that of out and out non-believers who refuse to accept things even when results are shown in front of their own eyes. They are fanatics in favour of atheism with the violent determination of sweeping out any talk or thought which are likely to lead one to the higher considerations concerning invisible forces, Divine aid, Saintly Incarnations etc. The other suffers from such an overpowering blind faith in the healing powers of divine aid that they fall pitiable victims to religious cheats who practice certain flimsy self-invented process of healing, for the purpose of self-aggrandisement and monetary benefits.

The Hindu Science of medicine has surely progressed to a high degree, but is lacking in certain qualifications to which the modern world has become habituated. The modern mind prefers quick relief even though temporary. It does not agree to any diet control and is not prepared for any preliminary troubles in the preparations of the medicines to be taken in.

The popularity of Indian medicines ended in the new age with the acceptance of the principles of equality among men as it was the general custom of the physicians to prepare and distribute the rich medicines to the rich from the funds supplied by them and the remnants to the poor. Another cause for the unpopularity was the greediness of the few learned physicians in the field who attempted to squeeze out as much as they could from their patients. Even though the modern doctors were no better, the public preferred the new departure mainly out of a desire to be relieved of an old evil and from the optimistic dreams on the new remedy. Today we find cries of new diseases and swarms of youthful patients everywhere and signboards of doctors at every nook and corner.

It has now become the inevitable duty of all thinking men to pursue the problem of the physical malady evil. As you know, West is always most enterprising and ready for any sacrifice to search out the truth in any subject either of material happiness, industry, science or spiritual knowledge. We are not in close touch with the day-to-day improvements made by the latest theories under discovery regarding diseases under enquiry in the west. The matter however of treating diseases in the allopathy has become too old there and a subject of the past, not to speak of different new varieties of medicines, operations etc. There have been a newer illumination in the west regarding diseases namely that one’s character, emotions, mental peace, devotion, strong will, self-control, disciplined life etc., have been exerting the most wonderful and unimaginable influence on the body which creates or prevents diseases and either augments or cures the diseases. Here we are getting a good deal of satisfaction and finding that the latest science, based purely on experiments and observations has been fast approaching our ancient beliefs which we did cherish and continued till our civilization got adulterated with western notions of life, its purpose and goal.

Nothing can be more authoritative than the final conclusion of Dr. Alexis Carrel who was twice awarded the nobel prize in 1912 and 1944. We quote here the exact words. “Prayer is a force as real as terrestrial gravity. As a physician, I have seen men, after all other therapy has failed, lifted out of diseases and melancholy by serene effort of prayer. Only in prayer do we achieve that complete and harmonious assemble of body, mind and spirit which gives the frail human its unshakable strength.” The November 1951 issue of Readers digest from America, the magazine read over the whole world, mentions the case of “The man who licked cancer.” He was a man who always talked in the tone of unconcealed devotion with resolute eyes. No one would suspect that he was a man who at 32 had fought of four attacks of cancer. The man who was told five years before, that he had but two weeks to live. The doctors on final conclusion suggested to him that his kidney tumor was cancerous and that he had only two weeks to live and finally to consider if he wanted to draw up his will. The man was entirely exasperated and stated. “The question of living or dying was to be decided by God Almighty and neither the disease nor the doctor.” He prayed and prayed with ardent devotion and was so much entirely freed from the smallest disability of the evil that he was reemployed and continued in his service of the hardest work and greatest responsibility. The final remedy and the most efficacious one is thus the living of one’s life, with the least mental disturbance on account of various vices, sinfulness, criminality etc. in a word, live the life of love and service to all and regulate and conduct every detail of one’s life in the fullest spirit possible of devotional and unconditional cheerful self-surrender to one’s own God Almighty or deity, does not matter whatever conception and whatever religion one has. It is a well-known fact that the said requirements namely love and service to all and devotion with self-surrender to God of whatever conception, are the sinews links tenets and commandments of the new religious movements of Mai-ism. Mai-ism is the newest rationalistic Universal Religion recommending the  said tenets. It has so much conviction about the beneficial and welfare procuring results on living the life with the observation of the said tenets that Mai-ism so very boldly, unlike any other religion of the past, dispenses with the need of even the most primary belief in the existence of God. Mai-ism states, you simply live the life of love and service to all that you come in contact with and Mother Maai Herself will take every possible care of you in the matter of your bodily happiness, moral development, religious initiation and illumination etc. This is so because even the present modern science thus corroborates the truth about the highest efficacy of living a life of universal love and service which under Mai-ism has the same efficacy as prayer to Mother in as much as there is nothing more evident than the fact that any mother is extremely pleased on rendering any help of relief to any one of her children.

Returning to the same most efficient authority in medical science Dr. Carrel states as under. “Prayer should be understood not as mere mechanical recitation but as mystical elevation and absorption of consciousness in the contemplation of a principle both permeating and transcending our word, such a psychological state is not intellectual. It is incomprehensible to philosophers and scientists and inaccessible to them. But the simple and innocent and virtuous feel God as easily as the heat of the sun or the kindness of a friend or the mercifulness of a mother. The prayer has to be in the first place entirely disinterested. The man has to offer himself to God. He has to stand before Him like a canvas before the painter or marble before the sculptor. At the same time he asks for His Grace, exposes his needs and those of his brothers in suffering. Generally one has to pray not for oneself, but for another.” In all countries and especially in India, people have belief in the existence of such beneficial results of curing diseases, healing of sick persons etc., but the greatest pity is, there is no understanding of a scientific nature behind the experience of such cures and such instances have been invariable connected with places of pilgrimage or some peculiar modes of attractive superficial religious living or with personalities like saints etc. It is the proudest privilege of Mai-ism to shatter off all imaginary notions connecting malady cures with any such outside appearances. Mai-ism so strongly emphasises on the absolute truth that it is the prayer and prayer alone offered by disinterested persons who live their lives for the welfare of the world that moves Almighty Mother to shower Her Grace to relieve every sort of misery and that all other paraphernalia are simply secondary and just to increase a little faith of the persons under grief or physical misery. Mai-ism sums up the strong disapproval about predomination of the subsidiaries and entire neglect of the principal working factor under its very strong expression of there being no ‘chchoo-mantra’ छु मंत्र under Mai-ism. It was this unhappy tendency of combining the true remedy with the exploiting and misleading elements of the said nature that during the 19th century not only the belief in prayers completely disappeared but even the expression of God, religion and prayer began to create natural hatred in the hearts of people born and bred under the quick and evident experiences of the teachings of science. Mai-ism believes, the custodians of Religion are none the less responsible than the people themselves for the new satanic evil of a disbelief and even hatred in matter of God, Religion and Prayers. The tendency of the new age is to develop their beliefs on the basis of actually observed and experienced facts of truth. As stated in Mai-ism the modern man asks for proofs for even sun rise and sun set and therefore for the assurance of the modern world it becomes quite useful to state that in the matter of proofs regarding the influence of mind over the matter and body, there has been amplest evidence in the new science under telepathy, clairvoyance, spiritual healing etc. The Western science has now begun to explore the entire field of reality and has attempted to learn the characteristics of spiritual modes of healing sickness etc.

Today any physician can observe the patients brought to Lourdes and examine the records kept in the medical Bureau. Lourdes is the centre of an international medical association and there is a growing literature about miraculous healing through prayer and devotion. Atheistic physicians too are becoming more interested in these extra-ordinary facts and professors of Medical Schools and Universities have taken up the work of an earnest enquiry to churn out the underlying spiritual truths. The Committee of Medicines and Religion of the New York Academy and Medicine has undertaken the study of this important subject.

So much then regarding the scientific principle on which Mai-ism hopes to carry relief to all under distress of any suffering. If a prayer is scientifically true for the removal of a physical suffering, it is much more calculated to be efficacious in the matter of mental suffering or the distress of heart.

Sandhyaa contains mainly the exercise of Praanaayaam or scientific breathing at an hour, when the atmosphere is specially suited for meditation and is pure and is meant to purify nerves.

In Vishnu Puraan, it is stated,”I bow down to the Supreme Ishvari, Who transcends speech and mind.”

Sometimes it is said, that the mind turns always 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. This contradiction is explained and by adding the qualifying words “Not purified” and “purified by Her Grace”, respectively to the word “mind”.
416) Chitshaktih चिच्छक्तिः – The power that removes Avidya अविद्या ignorance and grants right and righteous consciousness. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 416

 

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

418) Jadashaktih जडशक्तिः – She is the energy of the inanimate creation and inanimate things. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 418

Thus both Chaitanya चैतन्य  and Jada जड , 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.

 

419) Jadaatmikaa जडात्मिका – She that is the soul of the objective world. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 419

She is insentient Mother as well.

The popular name Gaayatri is that of Mantra consisting of twenty-four syllables. The Gaayatri Mantra of Mother is known to few, and its simple repetition, without the requirement of so many other suffixing and prefixing and distracting rituals, burns all sins to ashes. It is Aadyaayai Paramashvaryai Dheemahi Tannah Maai Prachodayaat . We recognise the Finalmost Mother alone, we meditate on Her, as the supreme Master of the universe and pray that She may pull us to Herself. This is Hindu Mother’s Aaddyaa Gaayatri- For Mai Gaayatri of Universal Mai-ism, please refer to pathanam.

While the ocean was being churned, all the best things came out, and last came poison, which began to destroy the universe. Shiva then came forth to control it, and swallowed up all poison, and hence Shiva’s throat became blue. Mahesvari forms that half body of that Mahesha or Shiva. The worldly meaning may also be noted that She is a true wife who shares the full miseries in all conditions and all circumstances.

393)  Prabhaavati प्रभावती – Luminous. She is so, being with luminaries of so many deities, Siddhis, Sun, Moon, Fire etc. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 393

Known to all in the shape of their “I”. Many deny the existence of God and dedication of anything to God. However, if God means “I” as it is under the Mother’s Ideal, every one not only owns but asserts the existence of Mother and dedicates and desires to dedicate the whole Universe to Her.

396) Parameshvari परमेश्वरी – Supreme Ruler. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तो., नाम क्रमांक 396

397) Mulaprakritih मूलप्रकृति -Primary cause. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 397

There are five elements from ether to to earth, and each is called the Prakriti ( origin ) of the succeeding one; the origin of ether is Mother and so She is called Mula-Prakriti. Prakriti is cause and Vikriti is effect. ” There is one Mother of the Universe , who has no origin; hence She is called Mulaprakriti.

” The earth, the basis of all, becomes dissolved into water, water is absorbed by fire, fire is absorbed into air,  air into ether, this into the unmanifested (Avyakta), and Avyakta into Mother.” So She is called Mulaprakriti.

398) Avyakta अव्यक्ता – Unimanifest. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 398

Avyakta is the collective form of the three qualities of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.

399 ) 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 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 attend 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 is Vaasudeva is Avyakta and Krishna as Raadhaa’s Beloved is Vyaktaavyakta.

400) Vyaapini  व्यापिनी- All pervading. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 400

She is called all-pervading, because She assumes all the different forms of the creations.

GOD AS MOTHER NAMES : 371 TO 380

LALITHA (LALITA) SAHASRANAMAM  ललिता सहस्रनाम MAI SAHASRANAMA माई सहस्रनाम

371) Vaikhari वैखरी –  Finally spoken form of speech. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 371

There are different stages of sound and speeches.

Though there are four kinds of speech, superficial-minded men do not know  the existence and do not understand the working of the first three.

Thus, if one uses an expression as “He speaks from lip, tongue, throat or navel, it is not a meaningless jargon.” Speaking through lip and tongue is most physical, that through throat is mental, that through the heart is emotional and that through the navel is causal. An outflow of love is sometimes stated to proceed from the navel. Speaking through eyes, is not only communicative  as through the tongue but is actuated with the desire of convincing.

It is the energy of the desire of the communication, that turns itself into the energy of speech. Some speak little and yet convey much. Some speak nothing and yet strike a much stronger hammer, than the vocal speech itself.

The fact is Vaikhari is not only the speech, and the lesser evolved forms are often more intense and more pregnant with energy. This explains how the heart speaks and the eyes speak more than intensely than tongue.

Intense prater is often speechless and intense love is similarly speechless. Speechless repetition of Mother’s Sacred name is, for the same reason, more effective than speechful.

372) Bhakta-maana-sahansikaa भक्तमानसहंसिका – She that beholds or regards Her devotees as playmates with Herself as a She-swan. There is a similar word, viz., Muni-maanasa-hansikaa.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 372
The subtle difference of the Bhakta भक्त and Muni मुनी or Yogi योगी ( as I make it ) may please be noted.The Muni of Yogi begins by withdrawing all senses from their usual objects of pleasure and silences them to help his mind to concentrate on Mother. Mother is perceived and Bliss is experienced. In the case of the devotee he does not deprive the senses of their pleasures but so trains them as to be feeling pleasure in the objects of innocent pleasures connected with Mother alone. The Muni succeeds by controlling the senses and engaging the mind. The devotee succeeds by substituting and sublimating the tastes.

The Muni closes doors against the universe  and enjoys the secret company of Mother. The devotee keeps the doors wide open but trains the senses to a higher happiness. Jnanin knows Her, the Yogi sees Her, the devotee touches Her and Karma Nishtha open an account with Her.

To the Muni, his mind is like the purest and most quite and crystallised water lake and in the midst of that lake the Muni sees the Mother as the most cheerful She-Swan. In the case of the Muni the purity and control is of the highest type. He is however on the bank and as a distant onlooker and enjoyer.
In the case of the devotee, it is all like the preparation of a country school boy. Nothing is achieved systematically and by a settled process or procedure. His strong points are love and sacrifice for Mother. Bhakta is with Her though as humblest, and fully knowing the  two planes of himself and Mother. He however is co-player.

Maana means protection. Mother extends the protection and attention and relation as a Sa-hamsikaa सहंसिका as the compassionate She-Swan. In a word Bhakta is a play-mate to Mother. The enjoyment is mutual and not one-sided. She feels for him. She teases him. She feels for him and harasses him. She bends him double. She sportively even prostrates to him. She deceives him.She makes an appearance as if She is deceived by him. She frightens him. She shows as if She is afraid of him and so on. In one word She sports with him.

373) Kameshvara-praana-naadi  कामेश्वरप्राणनाडी – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 373

The vital current of  the devotee during that absorbed condition. She is the protector of the devotee during the Laya condition just as even when the devotee falls unconscious on a main busy traffic road like Khar in Bombay (Mumbai). When the devotee sees face to face his unworthiness or inability to return the gratitude  for whatever Mother has done for him, he asks Mother,” Say Mother, should I live or die.Dost Thou tolerate my living ? ” ” This ungrateful living is unbearable to me. I wipe out my existence. “. He is then in a such condition that only Mother has been protecting him then. Mother raises and restore him. These are very dangerous moments and whether the devotee lives or dies is a question. So Mother is then the vital current.

The name suggests the meaning that the devotee in this condition is known only by the fact that the pulse is throbbing.

374) 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  कृतज्ञा  may also be taken to mean knower i.e., the Rewarder

of every smallest good thought, feeling and action.
375) Kaam-poojitaa कामपूजिता – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 375

Worshipped by Kaama, the deity of cupidity and sexual pleasure and happiness; or She that is worshipped in Kaama Rupa, i.e., the portion in the human body, near the place of happiness, i.e., Mulaadhaara Chakra. In the human body, Mother is supposed to have been mainly centred at four points figuratively named as under :

  1. Kaama Rupa Peetha near Mulaadhaara Chakra or place of enjoyment. 2. Odyaana Peetha near the navel, i.e. near Manipura Chakra 3. Purnagiri Peetha near theheart, i.e., near Anaahata Chakra. 4.Jaalandhar Peetha near the throat, i/e., near Vishhuddhi Chakra

376) Shringaara-rasa-sam-purnaa श्रृंगाररससम्पूर्णा – Filled with the essence of love. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 376

377) Jayaa जया – Allied to Jayini. Ever giving victory.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 377

 

It need not be stated that so many names of Mother have different interpretations, to suit different fields of love, devotion, religious philosophy, Yoga , etc. Shringaara Rasa is another name of Anaahat centre and in the field of yoga, this name means “She that fully remains in that centre.”

378) Jaalandhara-sthitaa जालन्धरस्थिता -Residing in throat. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 378
379) Oddyaana-pitha-nilayaa ओड्याणपीठनिलया  – Residing in navel. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 379
Next we turn within, i.e., inside our body.

In the body Mother is to be worshipped as residing in four places as under :-

1] Kaama-rupa-pitha-nilayaa as residing near the place of organ.

2] Oddyaana-pitha-nilayaa  , as residing in the navel.

3] Purnagiri-pitha-nilayaa , as residing in heart.

4] Jaalandhara-sthita-nilayaa, as residing in the throat.
Next we conceive of Mother as worshippable in different forms at different centers in our body already previously referred to.

 

380) Bindu-mandala-vaasini बिन्दुमण्डलवासिनी – Residing in the centre of the central point of the aforesaid triangle.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 380

351) Vaamakeshi वामकेशी – Having beautiful hair.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 351

Sometimes this word is made to be interpreted as the Mother of Vaamaks वामक, i.e.,followers of Vaama वाम  Maarga मार्ग . Or both the words Vaamakeshi वामकेशी and Kapardini कपर्दिनी are interpreted to mean wife of Shiva शिवwho is called Kapardi कपर्दी and Vaamakeshvar वामकेश्वर . Enough has been said about it.

 

352) Vahnimandalavaasini वह्निमण्डलवासिनी- Residing in the circle of fire. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र , नाम क्रमांक 352
Vahni-vaasini is the name of one of the sixteen Nityaas.

Vahnimandalaa lies in the Mulaadhaara Chakra. Vahni means three.She resides in the three circles of the moon, the sun and the fire in the Sahasraar, Anaahat and Mulaadhaar Chakras.

 

353) Bhaktimat-kalpa-latikaa भक्तिमतकल्पलतिका -The Kalpa creeper of the devotees. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 353
The Kalpa creeper yields everything desired.

It also means :- She that makes Her imperfect devotees perfect. Or She, that multiplies Her devotees and spreads them and their fame amongst many. She gladdens even Her imperfect devotees by the gift of all devotion. Shakti Rahasya states,” He who worships Bhavaani irregularly or with imperfect devotion, in the next birth becomes possessed of regular and perfect devotion.

 

354) Pashupaash-vimochini पशुपाशविमोचिनी -Releasing the ignorant from bondage. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 354
Pashus ( lit. animals )  are those who simply eat, drink and enjoy themselves and who are devoid of the conviction and devoid of the knowledge about Mother’s existence, about the psychic Law of Desire, thought and action, or the Law of action and reaction, about immortality of the soul and about what leads to liberation, etc. Pashu also means Jiva in contrast to Pashu-pati which means Shiva, who is the liberator. Hence the pashus are those who are devoid of wisdom. They who have no sense to understand past, present or future, their own nature or the working of others and the universe in their true colors.
Paasha (Bondage): The inherent blindness, incapacity to rise above the uncontrollable thirst and hunger of one who thinks of eating, drinking and making merry only. Pashu is one who is tied down with Paasha ( noose ).
Paasha also means dice and the ” Pashupaashavimochini ” may be taken to mean “ She that relieves Her devotees from miseries, ” whenever they play foolishly in dice game of worldliness and entangle themselves.

 

355) Samhritaa-shesha-paashandaa संह्रताशेषपाषण्डा – Destroyer of all hypocrites, i.e., who are hostile to true religiosity and righteousness. Here She considers why the aspirant approaches Her ? Is he hypocrite ? ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 355

 

356) Sadaachaara-pravartikaa सदाचारप्रवर्तिका – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 356

While Mother has been simply described as the the giver of the results of good and bad actions, She has not been fully described. She is not merely dispensing out justice but more than that, without the erroneously supposed indifferences to the running of the universe, She is all seeing that the whole universe and individuals are finally going towards “good” . That is the main policy of the Mai Government of the universe.

If the working principal behind all arrangements is to be stated, it is what Mother wants every soul to realise after varied experiences, that nothing can make the individual happy except returning with self-surrender to Her.
If evil predominates, She sends forth great saints preachers, founders and Message bearers. For them, that are incorrigible by softer means of the said type, there are shocking remedies as well, such as wars, epidemics, floods ,earthquakes, volcanoes etc.Universal sins are dealt with universally, national ones nationally, social and individual ones individually.
It would be stunting the natural  growth of a child, not to allow it even to stumble, but the final protection is there. Mother is Sadaachaara-pravartikaa also in the sense, that in most cases whenever you are inclined to do evil, your conscience warns you.

 

357)Taapatrayaagni-samtapta-samaahlaadaana-chandrikaa

तापत्रयाग्निसंतप्तसमाल्हादानचन्द्रिका

(3) impurity, sinfulness, ignorance, perverted intellect, etc., of the soul, by itself (Atmik);
Physical causes remaining the same, the miseries gets multiplied or reduced according as the stage which each soul has attained, and according as what one really is.
