[ 'अ' कारादि ललिता सहस्रनाम ]

 माई कुमारी सहस्रनाम


751) Vijnaatri विज्ञार्त्री - The Perceiver, the Knower. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र , नाम क्रमांक 651 

752) Vijnaana-kalanaa विज्ञानकलना - Causer of perception.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 902

753) Vijnaana-ghana-roopini विज्ञानघनरूपिणी - One essence of consciousness or chaitanya. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 253
754) Vidagdhaa विदग्धा - Artful in the art of ameliorating the devotees as also sporting with them.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 904

755) Vidyaa विद्या - Allied name. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 549

The Supreme art consisting of sacred knowledge and action, which by discrimination of the creations of Maayaa leads to wisdom and salvation, is Vidyaa.

756) Vidyaavidyaarupini विद्याविद्यारूपिणी- In the form of knowledge and ignorance. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 402
"One who knows both knowledge and ignorance, crosses over death, by knowing and eliminating ignorance and attains immortality, by attaining and achieving fruits of knowledge."
One must have both negative and positive knowledge and resort to both types of corresponding remedies. The two kinds of knowledge are, one about self-realization and the other about how the delusions and obstructions arise.
Vidyaa and Avidyaa are two forms of Mother, by one men are freed , by the other they are bound.
Mother has three forms, Bhraanti भ्रांती, Vidyaa विद्या and Paraaपरा . The confused knowledge of different objects almost of a delusive nature, is called Bhraanti भ्रांती.
Knowledge concerning self and Brahman without ambiguity, are called Vidyaa विद्या and Paraa परा respectively.
757)  Vidrumaabhaa विद्रुमाभा -Of the coral colour. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 891 
Vidruma विद्रुम also means tree of knowledge. VI वि means knowledge and DRUMA द्रुम  means tree.Also VI वि means great and VIDRUMA विद्रुम means the most fruit giving tree and Mother is such. 
Regarding benevolence and living the life of sacrifice for others the following are generally quoted
Trees, rains, saints and rivers are benefactory. Trees suffer under the Sun, rain, atmosphere tempests, solitude, no sitting posture etc. and give other their sweetest fruits to all with same cheerfulness and blessings, whether one prays for the fruits under its shades or hit the tree with stones.

758) Vidhaatri विधात्री The ordainer of one's fate. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 337
It is stated, on the sixth day after a child is born, this Vidhaatri settles up the main issues of the life  and living of the child.What befalls everyone is outside one's control is, what is ordained by Vidhaatri. The above function is Her function, as a routine one , but Mother is prayed as Vidhaatri, because She often makes exceptions and exempts Her devotees from routine operations of the Karmik Law, whenever She desires.

759)Vindhyachalvaasini विन्ध्याचलनिवासिनी - Residing in the midst of mountain.(Similar to above). ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 336
Considering the geographical situation of Himalaya and Vindhya, we may take the two Vaasinis(Residents of), to mean highest head energy and highest heart energy. This view gets support, because Vindhyavaasini is again described as Nanda- Gopa-Grihe-Jaataa. Born in the house of Nanda, i.e., the energy of Blessed Lord Krishna, who was the master of the hearts of the whole universe.

760) Vipra-priyaa विप्रप्रिया - Vipra is one who has the ancestral heritage of religious instruction and conduct who has purified himself and who has scriptural knowledge ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 887
Such a one is very dear to Mother.

Vipra-roopaa विप्ररूपा - Such a Vipra should be revered, protected, helped and maintained by worldly householders , with the understanding, that all sacrifices done for him are as it were for Mother Herself, i.e., as if Mother is being helped through the vipra.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 888
762) Vimarsharupini विमर्शरूपिणी - In the Vimarsha form.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 548

Vimarsha is inherent vibration.
Vimarsha is the first inherent vibration in Finalmost Mother, who has the Prakaasha form as the Fundamental one , and is Vimarsha that produces the animate and inanimate universe and destroys it. Vimarsha is the amplifier like speech to the Prakaasha as thought. Both are counterparts of each other . If there is no thought , speech has no meaning and value. If there is no speech, thought has no value and thinking has no utility.

763) Vimalaa विमला -  Unsullid. Pure in midst of all impurities.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 347

764) Vimaanasthaa विमानस्था - Constantly engaged in the protection of Her devotees.
VI means much, MAAN protection, STHAA, engaged in. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 943
765) Viyatprasooh वियत्प्रसूः -Mother of the ether.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 837

766) Viyadaadi-jagat-prasooh वियदादिजगत्प्रसूः - The mother of the universe consisting of ether,etc.ललिता सहस्रना स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 550
767) Virajaa विरजा  - Without passion and devoid of Rajas or the passion for activity or sin. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 779
768) 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.
769) Vilaasini विलासिनी -Playful. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 340
Playing with Her powers of concealing the truth, and showing untruth as truth and truth as untruth. Vilaasa primarily means extension. Vilaasa therefore means such  acts, gestures, projection and development by speeches and tricks, as intensify Love.
770)  Viviktasthaa विविक्तस्था- Abiding in solitude. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक  835

The universe is itself by holy.It is made unholy by people.Every ground is holy where no people go. Vivikta may be interpreted to mean the region of righteousness, but the importance of loneliness as most fitted for meditation can not be underrated.

Society and solitude both should be alternatively utilized. In solitude is the facility for awakening the higher powers.In society one has the school, the test and the means.

In forests there are sometimes fights of a deadly serpent and a mungoose. The mungoose  beats and the serpent bites.When the serpent's poison becomes unbearable the mungoose runs away to it's resting-hole where it smells some medicine which is antidote. By alternately fighting with the serpent and regaining powers in solitude , the mungoose finally kills the serpent. Such is Samsaar, the serpent of worldliness and the secret of success for the soul-mungoose is the alternate utilization of society and solitude.

Perhaps this illustration is repeated, but it has its appropriate place here and repetition is the secret of success. 

The Maai-ist, if a renouncer, says," All earth is mine.Mine by my universal service and mine by universal love." In black forests of man's ignorance there are poisonous wild trees of lusts, avarices and angers which have to be uprooted by practice.No amount of scriptural reading or Bhajans and Kirtans will help you.That uprooting has actually done by squeezing your own comforts and by crushing your lower mind.By extending love to all you make this earth much fairer to live in. 

Aspirant on the path of salvation must from the very commencement fore-arm themselves against hard obstructors and tempters on the path.These are 1] egoism 2] doubt and oscillatoriness. 3] abuse of powers 4] lust 5]pure and misplaced love out of a wrong idea of duty or helplessness of the beloved 6] hate 7] clinging to life or fear of loosing life 8] pride and 9] ignorance etc.
The for-arming and fighting to success should be well practiced and not presumed on the ground of being Rishis' and Professors' sons or on the ground that you have never taken meals without bath.
771) Vividhaakaaraa विविधाकारा - Of varied multifold forms. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 401
She is formless because She is Supreme, while She is many-formed because of Her activity. Though She is of the nature of Para Brahma, ( Finalmost mother ), She is also the agent of all action and activity (Active Mother ).
The difference between the above two names, is that one refers to innumerable varieties of the same kind, and other to the innumerable kinds, even contradictory and yet there is no incongruency as stated in the next name.
772) Vishaala-akshi विशालाक्षी - Long eyed. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 936
Not circular but like the bow, peculiar to Bengali pictures.
773) Vishukra-praana-harana-vaaraahi-virya-nanditaa 
विशुक्रप्राणहरणवाराहीवीर्यनन्दिता - Rejoicing in he strength of Vaaraahi the sucker of the life of Vishukra. Vaaraahi  वाराही is Danda Naatha दण्डनाथ or Dandini दण्डिनी.  ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 76
774) Vishuddhi-chakra-nilayaa विशुध्दचक्रनिलया -
 In the Vishuddhi centre, which is in the cavity of throat, in the sixteen petalled lotus, I adore Daakini of the rosy-coloured, armed with club,the sword, the trident, having one face and striking the sinful with terror, presiding over the skin, whose form is surrounded by Amrita   and other Shaktis and who is worshipped by warriors.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 475  
775) Vishrinkhalaa विशृंखला - Naked, unfettered.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 834
She that unfetters Her devotees from the cause of bondage. Nakedness is better than even best dressing. Wise devotees always always pray to Mother, " Oh Mother ! Destroy my bad actions as also good actions. Fetters though of gold are not less strong to bind."

776) Vishvagarbhaa विश्वगर्भा - Whose womb is the universe.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 637
777) Vishvagraasaa विश्वग्रासा- ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 890
She to whom the whole universe is just nothing more than a morsel. She is the consumer of the universe. The sinful and the sinless, the Brahmins and the Harijans, the Hindus and Non-Hindus, in spite of all their tall-talked differences are not different to Her. All are them are merely the smallest grains of Her morsel and that is apparent. Neither the sinless, nor the Hindu nor the Brahmin nor the bath and kitchen religion observers, have been able to show any greater superiority to others, in matter of avoiding and postponing or prolonging death. The difference is there but it should not be so magnified, as will throw you in forgetfulness of many times much higher truths.

778) Vishvato-mukhi विश्वतोमुखी  - With faces in all directions and turned to all, capable of seeing with millions of angles of vision and attending to the need and evolution of one and all. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 780
779) Vishvadhaarini विश्वधारिणी - Supporter of the universe. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 759

780) Vishva-bhramana-kaarini विश्वभ्रमणकारिणी -Causing the revolution of the Universe. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र,नाम क्रमांक889
Some wise call it nature, some confused call it time; that by which the wheel of the universe is revolved, is the glory of the Mother.All beings are tied down to the wheel of universe which the Maayaa, the power that causes confusion, misunderstanding, perversion,etc. keeps on revolving.

781) Vishvamaataa विश्वमाता -She is the Mother of the whole universe.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र ,नाम क्रमांक 934
782) Vishvarupaa विश्वरूपा  Creation. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र ,नाम क्रमांक 256
She that should not be considered as separate from the universe, which is of Her own making. 
You can not get the Grace of Mother and act in any way you like , with the universe.

783) Vishva-saakshini विश्वसाक्षिणी  - She sees and supervises all and everything. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तो., नाम क्रमांक 384

784)  Vishvaatmikaa विश्वात्मिका - In the collective form of all souls in the waking state. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 256

This word is slightly altered to suit the symmetry of the following two words. The name in the original is Vishvarupaa. 
785) Vishvaadhikaa विश्वााधिका- Transcending the universe. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 334
She is beyond universe. This name removes misunderstanding of those who think that God is only imaginary name for all things of universe put together known as "nature". This name is an eye opener for them who do not go beyond "Mother Nature".

786) Vishnu-granthi-vibhedini विष्णुग्रन्थिविभेदिनी - Severing the knot called Vishnugranthi. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 102
787) Vishnumaayaa विष्णुमाया - All-pervading love. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 339
Vishnu means all pervading unlimited by place, time and law of causation, etc. and Maayaa means love. It is in the field of Maayaa, delusion and love, that seeming obsurdities have a place.
Mother is the donor of the power of diplomacy and delusion conferred on Vishnu to enable him to conduct and protect the universe. This is an instance glorifying Her name Varadaa, the boon-giver. The most efficient and the most wonderful power that  subjects and conquers everything and everyone is Vishnu's. And it is by way of boon of Her giving. Ishitva (supremacy) and Vashitva (subjugation) are Vishnu's powers or Vaishnavi powers of holding supremacy after subjugation..
In a worldly way, success is achieved by four powers known as Shama शम (conciliatory, co-operative and persuasive power), Daana दान (purchasing power and power of temptations through promised or actual returns),Bheda भेद (powers of dissuading, misinterpreting secret working, planning, plotting and cheating etc.) and Danda दण्ड (power of force and might).
788) Vishnurupini विष्णुरूपिणी -Mother in the form of Vishnu. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 893

Mother's male form was that of Lord Shri krishna, who bewildered milk-maids, (Gopees).
The Ancient Shakti becomes Bhavaani, in its ordinary form. In battle She takes the form of Durgaa; in anger that of Kaali or Chandi; and She also takes Vishnu's male form. The one and the same Mother has been worshiped in so many forms, including male form as well.

789)  Vira-goshti-priyaa वीरगोष्ठीप्रिया - Fond of scriptural talks , disputes, discussions by learned Pandits and Mahaatmaas and Shaastris and their assemblies, provided they are Veeras which means warriors i.e., men of action and heroism of making necessary sacrifices for the sake of their principles and determination to walk in the path of righteousness.
India abounds in scriptural talks in every street and every house, but that talk is not by Veeras. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 898

790) Veeramaataa वीरमात्रा - Mother of warriors.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 836
Veera also means chief among devotees. Veera-Dikshaa is one of the initiations in one of the schools of the old Shaaktaas.

791) Veeraa वीरा - Valorous. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 899

792)  Veeraaraadhyaa वीराराध्या -Worshipped by valiants. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 777
It is the best path for them that are self-determined, prepared to suffer and sacrifice. The characteristics of the Veraas are that they do not need external enjoyments, they enjoy self, they are ready for meeting and surmounting the difficulties, removing pains and miseries of others. They have dissolved egoism and are devoted to bravery.
793) Vriddhaa वृध्दा - Old. Devotees humorously cajole Her with "Thou art the oldest being, tottering along Thy stuff, but still not exhausted and not winding up Thy play." ललिता साहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 671

794) Vedajanani वेदजननी-Mother of the Vedas.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 338
Mother of all scriptures of all religions. This name establishes the superiority of Love of God to the most profound knowledge of the sacred lore. Vedas, the fountain of universal Divine Knowledge, have come to exsistance, as a breathing by Her. Individual divine knowledge arises as a result of the waking up and hissing of Mother, in the shape of Kundalini the serpentine power, residing in each individual body.
Tukaaram when greatly harassed  by Pandits said, "You know Vedas but I have caught the Lotus Feet of the Father of Vedas." Similarly Mother is described here as Mother of Vedaas, the shower-er of divine and spiritual knowledge, on universes and individuals.
795) Veda-vedyaa वेदवेद्या - Veda means four. "Known by the practice of four life maxims Love, Service, Devotion and Self-surrender which are the gates to the Chintaamani palace of Mother." Chintaamani is a gem, which the power of conferring whatever is desired, as soon as thought of having a particular desire fulfilled, arises. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 335
796) Vedya-varjitaa वेद्यवर्जिता - Transcending all knowledge. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 652

797) 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.
798) Vaishnavi वैष्णवी - Mother of protection. Mother of Vishnu. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 892

She is sung as Vaishnavi, (1) because She bears conch, disc and club wich are born by Vishnu as well; (2)because She is the Mother of Vishnu.

799) 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.

800) 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.
