Primarily, we may consider the three Tattvas, viz., Atma Tatva, Shiva Tattva and Vidya Tattva. The imperfect, the perfect and the transformer of imperfect to perfect. She is collectively in the form of these three Tattvas, as well as transcending the three.
For thirty six Tatvas in detail the introduction may please be read.
(1) Atmatattva has preponderance of the element of Shiva merged in maayaa, (2) Vidyaa Tattva has that of Shakti and (3) Shiva Tattva , that of Shiva and Shakti combined. The fourth ( The Turiyaa Tattva ) represents the unification and oneness of these three together. From another view, these three Tattvas represents Sat, Chit and Ananda. From earth upwards, the thirty six Tattvas including Atma are represented by the Tattva "Sat". Chit is the working Power and Ananda is the transformation of imperfect to perfect and the combination of Shiva and Shakti. It is the shadow of this Ananda which the soul experiences, on attending the desired object or state. Taking the two said sets of the interpretations of the Tatvas, Shivatattva correspondence to Anada because it is blissful, Shaktitattva to Chit because it confers knowledge and power, & Atmatattva to Sat, because it has immortal existence, knowledge -- external and perfection -- reaching destiny.

 तनुमध्या Tanu-madhyaa -Slender waisted. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र,
 तमोपहा Tamopahaa - Remover of darkness. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 361
Tamas means ignorance. They that worship ignorance enter blind darkness. Darkness and ignorance mean death. Primarily Tamas manifests itself in two ways , (1) not knowing the right thing and knowing truth as untruth and untruth as truth (2) Deadness, inertia, aversion or any change or activity.
Under deadness comes absence of control over senses and false contentment known as Ashakti or Tushti respectively. Tushti is also a kind of Tamas, and some of its varieties are" All your exertions towards raising religiosity are simply wasteful. Time is unsuitable. God himself does not like. It is the wish of God that in Kaliyuga (iron age) religious work can not bear fruit."
Under the other head of Tamas comes ignorance, inversion and abuse, the dynamic force being egotism and selfishness. The abuse of God Grace to obtain Siddhis and utilise them to one's fame and easy attainment of all comforts, pleasures and sources of merry-making is the most degenerative abuse. In the case of ignorance the man has no knowledge but in the case of inversion he knows facts and yet acts in the opposite manner.Incapacity and weakness is one thing, over-activity and oppressiveness is another thing and between the two is indecision and oscillation and hypocrisy, etc.
