Names 843 to 892



Under this group, some more names, mostly repeating the ideas already given are enumerated. 
(843) Janani जननी - Mother. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र,नाम क्रमांक 832
Some read this with the previous word in the text and take one of the names of Mother to be Brahma-janani. This explains the Mother's Lodge view. Some ask " Is Mother the Mother of Krishna who is represented to be Poorna (Perfect) and of Shiva ?" 
Mother's Lodge explains thus," Consider some deity, Mother of that deity, Mother of that deity's Mother, and so on. You must come to some end. That Finalmost Mother is the Mother of the Mother's Lodge. The highest variety that the Hindus can conceive of is Brahmaa. Mother's Lodge says, " If Brahmaa has Mother, the Mother of the Lodge is the Mother of Brahmaa." There must an origin from which all this has originated and origin means  Mother.
Taking the Puraanic view even when Naaraayan is sleeping, Lakshmi, although represented to be shampooing is awake. It is worldly foolishness to infer that the shampooing entity is inferior.
