माई कुमारी सहस्रनाम
This means that Scriptures-deities use the dust of Mother's Lotus Feet, to serve as vermilion in the different hair-partings. What is conveyed is, that Scriptures personified as deities, not only hold Mother as Saviour but they cling to the Mother's Lotus Feet, and place their dust on their heads , most reverentially and worship-fully. Scriptures also are incapable of expressing Her directly and describe Her by negation"Not this, Not that" etc.

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.
The Kurma Puraan says "Those who once remember Mother, invoking Her protection do not fall in to the endless ocean of Samsaara which is difficult to be crossed."

This is the name of Paarvati and means chaste and faithful spouse.Even in imagination a true wife should not think of any other person as her husband or lover. When Rama was roaming like a madman after the loss of his beloved wife Seetaa, Paarvati suspected if Rama, who appeared to be so much entangled in the love of his wife could be the incarnation of one of the three deities. So, She with a view to test him, took the form of Seetaa and approached Raamaa; but Raamaa at once bowed down to Her and said, ' O Mother wherefrom you here ? Is my Lord Shiva happy?"
Those who worship ignorance enter into deep darkness. Those who worship knowledge , enter int highest lights. What one likes , that he seeks, What he seeks that he collects knowledge about. Seeking and knowing how, he gets approach to the sought.What one is in contact with, that attracts him.What attracts him that he exerts to possess. Finally deleting the intermediate process . what one likes, that he gets.
The important psysic law is that the illuminated gets more and more illuminated and the deluded gets more and more deluded.
The reverse meaning is brought out thus : - Sati (सत् ) Ajna (अज्ञ) Anaanandaa (अनानंद) or
सत्यज्ञानानन्दरूपा = सत्य +ज्ञान + आनंद + रूपा // सत्य+ अज्ञ + अनानंद + रूपा // सत्य + अज्ञान + आनंद + रूपा
Dearest reader, if thou hast love for me , repeat and repeat the above para, substituting Thee and Thine for Mother, Her, Hers and Her, etc. for the sake of thy love for me at least. From "The entire" to "alone".
i.e. : =
[ The entire absence of joy or the continuous feeling of being miserable, for them that do not THEE or the imitative or delusive joy arising from the worldwormness and sense living of them that are in dark regarding THEE, respectively. These two, as also the joy of the truely wise and followers of truth, all proceed from THEE, and are making of THINE, and are aspects of THINE alone.]
It has made me loose myself at 9 A.M. of Friday, 9 January 1940 .
Satyarupaa is a higher form than the Satyavrataa which is again higher than Satyapriyaa. You are on the other side of truth.You side with people , customs, action and conduct in the right, that is Satyapriyaa. You yourself trying to best keep yourself in the right is Satyavrataa. When you can not feel easy yourself because you are not in the right, you are Satya-rupaa.
Satya-rupaa is the stage when the righteous living becomes so interwoven with one's thought and action that any casual observer can mark you out whenever you speak an untruth or twist the truth or make the slightest departure from the right conduct.You are then Satyarupaa. There is so much of uneasiness, confusion and guiltiness stamp on your face, that even the dullest person can detect you. You are then Satya-rupaa. You can not remain composed till you have vomited out your crime, sin, fault or folly.
As an instance of Satyarupaa I quote a wonderful instance of actual happening of a young man. He having fallen a pray to weakness with a young woman in solitude, went direct to the woman's husband and spoke to him thus : " I and your wife succumbed now, being young and in solitude. We both are fools and uncontrolled. I do leave this place tonight so that the sin may not be repeated but our best saviour can be you.I therefor pray to you to do all the needful to save us both from direct hell." Whatever he is another field, he is a Satyarupaa.
A similar instance I know of another person. For his service done some one came one night to him and in spite of flat refusals left a fifty rupee note. As soon as that man left, this Satyarupaa began to get headache and vomiting and after two hours he called his son and said , " I know our poverty but if you wish I may not die before morning, please take this money and return to its owner."
Satyarupaa सत्यरूपा are those who cannot bare the burden of any secret or the fact of having dabbled with truth or having hurt anyone by unpleasant feeling, thought word or deed.
Satyavrataa सत्यव्रता may also be taken to mean She that is pleased by vow of speaking and living truth or She that becomes Satya, i.e., more known or manifested on observing Vrataas (religious vows) sincerely and not hypocritically. Satya also means giving quick and lasting results, and Satyavrataa means She that gives quick and lasting results. Satyavrataa may also mean She that makes Her promises true in the matter of conferring all that is necessary for evolution till the attainment of salvation, on him who surrenders himself to Her.
In Devi Bhaagvat there is a story of an illiterate and foolish Brahmin by name Satyavrataa who on repeating the sound "Ai" - ए which he heard from the mouth of a boar by whom he was frightened became the king of poets. Mother taking pity on him completed his "Ai" ए to be "Aim" एम and "Aim" एम become "MAI" by continuous repetition.
The greatest virtue which gives a lift in spirituality is Satya or Truthfulness.The usual outlook about the "Truth" of the routine religionist although he repeat that word hundred times is extremely narrow. Few have explained "Truth" except by some small definition of " Conformity of word, thought and action".
I say by experience that crookedness and violation of truth is much worse than highest sin because it deadens the conscience and closes all doors against even the best saviours. No patient can be cured by even the most celestial doctor, if the very history he gives the false one. If you are unreliable, you are incorrigible and untouchable as well. Impurity of other sins soils you but the impurity of crookedness murders your higher self.
Purity suggested in the name Shuddhaa is internal and external,mental and physical. The internal impurity is due to evil motives, illegitimate desires, harmful intentions, falsehoods spoken and intended to be spoken, plans and designs, projects and programmes based on basis of selfishness and attainment of selfish desires, currents and undercurrents, different colours and cap-boards, different flows of living (natural, as to be shown to the people, as desired and so on). See Satya Roopaa सत्यरूपा .
External impurity is due to visitations of unhealthy areas and places as epidemic-affected, burning and burial grounds, night-soil repositories, etc., due to impure touch of human corpse, a dead animal, a woman in menses, due to sexual cohabitation, due to unearned food or food already contaminated during with attainment with actions of the most debased sort of living or earning etc.
You are more polluted by food earned by doing baseliest deeds .
This pollution is actual and not imaginary or superstitious. If one carefully analyses himself he can find it out. I want Maai-ists to understand everything in quite a scientific way by additions and subtractions, by weighings, sortings etc.
Before Mother's worship begins, the very first prayer after repetition of Jay Maai is to purify us in the following words :-
Apavitrah pavitro vaa, sarvaavasthaam gatopi vaa |
संस्कृत शलोक - [ अपवित्रः पवित्रो वा सर्वावस्थां गतो अपि वा ।
Impure or pure, or gone to any condition of impurity though he repeats Maai Jay Maai, he is pure externally and internally.
Sat and Asat are also the two kinds of knowledge. Sat is knowledge or mental understanding about Mother after, the realization of the unity underlying the Soul, Universe and Mother. It is after this realization alone , that the Universe becomes Asat (non-existent). Asat knowledge means the knowledge which is non existent, but which is contrary to the final truth, and which every soul has , before the above said realization.
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.

892) Samaya-achaara-tat-paraa समयाचारतत्परा - She that is ready to accept and be satisfied with the poorest and most incomplete and meagre rituals, which the devotee is able to observe serving at the right moment, as best as he can. Mother is most merciful while considering his capacities, circumstances,times and conditions.Just as Kaulaachaar कौलाचार is kind of worship, so is Samayaachaar समयाचार. The former is worshipping Mother in Chakras mentally produced in ether. The latter is worshipping Mother in the ether of the heart itself.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 98
As per Mother's Ideal, Kulaachaar कुलाचार is the practice, in one's dealing with all, of a demeanour which proceeds from the belief that we are all of one (Kula कुल) family and Samayaachaar is the higher practice of seeing sameness and dealing out treatment of equality and justice to all.
This name also means , She that is anxious to see that Her devotee's demeanour to all is uniformity,justice, oneness, sameness and equality. Samay समय means worship or time and Aachaar अाचार means behavior. Mother's own behaviour also during worship is one of very great impatience, to somehow finish up the rituals and very quickly enter into personal relations of equality, of Mother and Son or God and devotee, with Her devotees.

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.
The body of the Great Mother should be contemplated upon, as a perfect Image of all sacred Love contained in different Tantras, because there is the relationship of the different Tantras with Mother corresponding different limbs and with crown, garments, ear-rings etc. This is as under :-
