(952) Duraadharshaa दुराधर्षा  -  Difficult to be restored to form the point of control required as an essential quality.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 772

Both these terms are well explained by reference to the characteristics of Mother's religion as against Fathers.
Lukewarmness will not do. Strict obedience is indispensable. Haphazardness and half-heartedness, doing something somehow in some way just by way of appearing to be religious before others or relieving the conscience pricks by self-deception would not do in the Mother's Path.
For people of no special effort and special faculties, the routine path of stumbling, slowly proceeding further, more by the push from the behind than by their own initiative as in the row before the booking window is much better.
Shorter ways are always along steeper slopes or through difficulties. They that have no strength, no co-operation, no sense of their of own, no self-determination, for them this path is hard to follow.

(953) 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.

Shishtaas शिष्ट have educated men who can understand and the working, who can decide the further course for themselves with help and advice of Guru and the Grace of Mother, and who can introspect and watch the whole progressive procedure.

(955) Amati अमती - Wrongly directed intelligence. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 537

Why is it so as above stated? Because having left the protection of the routinists stated before, you are likely to miss as well. If you are not the blind follower of what the society or some routine religious leader tells, you are likely to commit a blunder as well.

Mother is everything. She is the Lakshmi or the prosperity in the house of the meritorious devotees, the atheism of the atheists, and poverty and wretchedness of the wicked.

The final results are determinable by your determination not to leave Her Lotus Feet, even though you sometimes commit blunders.
Because these blunders are errors and sometimes purposely ordained by Mother to test and teach by suffering. They are sometimes a part and programme of the evolutionary path.

Because he had dispensed with all accessories of worship and rituals.

When other thinks he is playing and enjoying, he may be actually worshipping Mother internally.

(972) Anitya-triptaa अनित्यतृप्ता - Satisfied with most trivial perishable offerings. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 815
This is so because Her taste is much higher. She is only pleased with devotion. She accepts whatever is offered, however trivial, with the greatest joy provided it is offered with devotion.
This is apparent even in human life. The higher a man evolves, the lesser value he attaches to material objects and enjoyments, Her joy is in praises with devotion as under:-
