All scriptures, with all their highest efforts to try to fathom the nature and truths about the Mother, have been successful enough, just to be able to describe not Her nature, not even Her body, but simply the pearl of an ornament of Hers. That ornament is also not one, that is in contact with any of Her limbs, but the pearl of a nose -ring.
"Mother! Everything that all religions have to teach and everything  that all the great men of past of all nations have to give; both put together, goes to form only the first Furlong Formula , to the way-fairer on the long long infinite way to Thee, I have never come to Thee,  tracing my way, Thyself has lifted me  away to Thy mysterious mansion."

Says one devotee, " Oh Mother! Repeating Thy simple name is more meritorious than repeating the several words prescribed for offering oblations. The hunger of all the hosts of deities and dead ancestors (Devas and Pitris) is fully satisfied on hearing Thy ecstasy-giving name, in case, due to poverty or some unfortunate circumstances, it is not possible to make offerings."
