Names 401 to 415

Under this group. such names are arranged, as describe Mother and the Universe and the souls, etc., as a way to be useful from the point of achieving progress and evolution
(401) Pratishthaa प्रतिष्ठा - Foundation. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र नाम क्रमांक 829
Pratishthaa means honour or fame, fixity and foundation.  
Mother is the foundation of the Universe and the supreme consciousness which She has or is, the foundation of all consciousness about all things. She establishes certain relations of cause and effect, substance and property, and laws governing all the phenomena of the Universe. Similarly, in the path of evolution, it is Her Grace that lays the foundation of all evolution.
It is this Pratishthaa which gives fixity, character and devotion, and which establishes one firmly in devotion and the path of progress.
Praan-Pratishthaa of an idol or a photograph means the sanctifying the same, by pouring in or establishing the soul force therein, by those that are empowered to do so, by intense devotion and purity, through Divine Grace.

(402) Prakataakritih प्रकटाकृतिः Of form experienced by all. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 830

Prakata, experienced by all, akrutih Her nature. All men know themselves (i.e. their selves) as "I", and have no doubt about the existence of themselves and yet through delusion, they never think, know or recognise all different selves to be proceeding from Mother.
A child believes, it is indebted to the house tap for allaying thirst. A working cooly says he is indebted to the street pipeline. A mechanical engineer says he is indebted to the water workstation. The hydraulic Engineer states he is indebted to the river dam. The physicist says he is indebted to the clouds. The geologist says, to the ocean, further someone to Sun and still further, the astronomer will refer to the solar system and so on. Each man is able to judge according to his capacity.

(403) Guhyaa गुह्या - The secret. Mother is Secret of Secrets. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 624
Mysterious are the ways of Mother.
Just mark the contrast, She is as comprehensible and knowable as broad daylight as meant by the name Prakataakrutih, and yet, Guhyaa, most incomprehensible. By now, the reader must be able to explain the contradiction. To them whom She chooses She is knowable; to them from whom She wishes to conceal Herself She is Guhyaa; but the last word is that She is Guhyaa

(404) Sarvaadhaaraa  सर्वाधारा - Supporter of all.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 659
Mother is the supporter of all. Aadhaara means to support and Dhaaraa means gradations and laws. She establishes grades, different diversities, and establishes a government, although, in the end, it is Mother Herself who is perceived in all things, permanent or impermanent, gross, subtle or more subtle, embodied or disembodied, one or many and everywhere. 

(405) Sadasadrupadhaarini सदसदरूपधारिणी - Mother is the foundation and assumes all forms of being and nonbeing.
Sat means Mother and Asat means Universe.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 661 

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 not non-existent, but which is contrary to the final truth, and which every soul has, before the above-said realization.
Sat and Asat also mean existence and non-existence. Existence is what is permanent and unchangeable. Whatever appears as either existent or non-existent is caused to appear so, by the desire of Mother.

(406) Kevalaa केवला - The absolute.ललिता सह्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 623
She is single and devoid of all attributes, perfect, complete and not subject to any modifications.

(407) 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. "

(408) Divyavigrahaa दिव्यविग्रहा  - Divine bodied, with shining person.ललिता सहस्र नाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 621
Those who get a glimpse of Mother, first see such a flood of light, that the eyes close down as on the sudden appearance of sunlight in dark and the devotee falls in a swoon for a few seconds.

(409) Prajnaanaghanarupini प्रज्ञानघनरूपिणी - In the shape of concentrated knowledge.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 574
Knowledge obtained as the concentrated essence from the experience of many actions and their results and conclusions which gives guidance to every being, at every further step.
As the taste of saltishness experienced in a lump of salt is neither within nor without, so is full and concentrated knowledge, permeated in and around the "object known", outside and principally as reflected in the brain stuff.

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

Jnaana alone is the supreme liberator, Jnaana 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.

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

(412) Satya-jnaana-anada-rupaa सत्यज्ञानानंदरूपा - In the form of Truth, wisdom and bliss. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 791
Mother is both knowledge and ignorance, the high-class joy and worldliness joy.

Those who worship ignorance, enter into deep darkness.  Those who worship knowledge, enter into the 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 psycic 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  
Sati (सत् ) - Ajnaana(अज्ञान) - Aanadaa(आनंद) :-

सत्यज्ञानानन्दरूपा  =  सत्य +ज्ञान + आनंद + रूपा   //          सत्य+ अज्ञ + अनानंद + रूपा  //  सत्य + अज्ञान + आनंद + रूपा 
 The entire absence of joy or the continuous feeling of being miserable, for them, that do not know Mother (Sati, Thee) or the imitative or delusive joy arising from the worldwormness and sense living of them that are in dark regarding Mother (Thee), respectively. These two, as also the joy of the truly wise and followers of truth, all proceed from Her (Thee), and are making of Hers (Thine) and are aspects of Her (Thine) alone.

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 know 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 truly 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. on Friday, 9 January 1940.
The joy of them, that are blessed with wisdom, knowledge of Truth and experience of bliss, as well as that of those drowned in ignorance and worldliness due to the absence of a relationship with or at least, knowledge of Her, are both Hers.
And it is this, that explains why true devotees of Mai enjoys everything, even ignorance, worldliness, irreligiosity and atheism, and are not ruffled thereby, and are never driven to hating others; as in the case of religious persons of other creeds. A Mai-ist is very broad in his outlook. He says," Well if the joy of the particular soul lies in evil, let him be happy therewith. It is all Mother's play."

(413) Paraaparaa परापरा - Superior and Inferior. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 790
"Paraa means superior, enemy, distance, " and Aparaa the reverse. Paraa means others and Aparaa means the self; again Paraa means foe and Aparra friends. Paraaparaa is he, who is far and near, without and within, foreign or familiar, foe or friend.
Mother is neither of these and yet both of these.
Paraa and Aparaa also mean the two kinds of knowledge true and false, similarly night and day, and therefore mother is dawn, which joins the two.
Mother, when She wants to create, prompts Her devotees to praise Her, as the dawn at the time of the beginning of creation.
Knowledge is said to be two-fold by the division of Paraa and Aparaa. Of these, the first is the supreme knowledge and leads to the cognition of the Mother, and liberation from the bondage of the self. The second, Aparaa knowledge is such knowledge of false notions, beliefs, differences, etc. as simply becomes the cause of greater and greater bondage. Some add the Paraaparaa knowledge which is there, when one who well knows both varieties of knowledge, continuously swings between the two and attains little of permanent gain.
Worship is also of three kinds: Aparaa, Paraaparaa and Paraa.
Aparaa means, remaining in the spiritual realm of nonduality, the Aparaaparaa is worship of Mother, through and by means of the (Shree) Chakra.
The Paraa means worship of all manifestations of Her, without the higher understanding.
Mother is also threefold, paraa , Aparaa and Paraaparaa. Brahmi, the creative energy, which has the white colour, is said to be Paraa. Vaishnavi, the protective energy, which has the red colour is Aparaa, and Raudri, the destructive energy, which is black coloured, is called Paraaparaa.

(414) Paraanishthaa परानिष्ठा  - Supreme end. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 573
Attaining Mother is the final goal.
All kinds of actions and knowledge, sooner or later, bring the soul to that conclusion.
All actions good and even bad, by experience, lead you to the same conclusion, and that being the goal to be achieved, Jivas are made to do all different actions, both bad and good, and to pass through various experiences. 

(415) Paraatparaa परात्परा -   The supremest of the supreme. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 809

Mother is greater than the greatest, nearer than nearest, more befriending than the most befriending. The worshipper of the Highest Lord, Servant of the lowest servant, grosser than the grossest, and subtler than the subtlest.
