[253] तुर्या  Turyaa  - State of ecstasy. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 262

She that manages the Turya state. Turaya is the state in which the experience called Shuddhavidya, which is the result of discrimination of these (lower ) three states, is acquired and enjoyed. Though there are different states,. viz., waking, dreaming , and sleeping, real enjoyment only exists only in the fourth one. Jiva in this state is above the notion of the lower three bodies and is stated to have merged in the great causal body.It is the ecstasy in the fourth state, which dripping therefrom and permeating the other three states, animates them and confers enjoyability thereon. In the Turyaa state the static knowledge experience and the working of the thinking, feeling and acting (all accumulating to an extinction of the notion of body,etc.) and the enjoyment of bliss, are all of the highest order.

[258]  त्रिकूटा Trikutaa -Three-peaked or three grouped. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 588

The three peaks of a mountain may be taken to be Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh and She is the one mountain of which, those are the peaks. Kuta also refers to the group of the fifteen syllabled Mantra. She that is worshipped by three groups.

 [263] त्रिगुणात्मिका  Trigunaatmikaa- In the form of the three qualities. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र ,नाम क्रमांक 763

On a fair mastery, being obtained over the above stated gross forms of feelings, emotions,desires, etc., one should come to the close study of the causes of several emotions and of vices and virtues.Here all diverse effects are reduced to three primary causes , viz. , the three Gunaas- Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. All that we feel, think or act  is the result of a particular

mental condition formed as a combination of the three qualities of activity (Rajas); Inaction (Tamas) and Sattva (Equilibrium).

All emotions are so many changes in head and heart. So far as the physical relation of these emotions and the material of the brain stuff are concerned , it has been found by the Hindus that emotions have an intimate relation with the food you take. Gunas are temperaments or humours reigning at a particular time over all thoughts , desires and actions resulting in and from a man.

The Sattva quality produces  a predisposition for happiness, purity, clearness and true knowledge. Rajas for desires and efforts for attaining them and Tamas for indolence, perversion. disinclination to movement or change and unnatural tendencies . That food has intimate relation with thoughts is evident from effects  of intoxicating drugs. Food being pure , the mind remains pure.

Substantial, tasteful, oleaginous food like milk butter, fruits etc. increases the Sattvik quality.

Bitter, acidic, sour, saltish, overhot, pungent, dry and burning foods increase Rajas.

Stale, putrid, stinking, foul, remnant-like, unnatural and changed foods increase Tamas.

Fasts and prohibitions about food have a bearing on these grounds.

The idea about the three qualities and their modifications  is expressed in the following names.

Trigunaatmikaa. She that is one with any one of the three qualities as also with their innumerable combinations. She in whom these three are in equilibrium.

[264]  त्रिजगवंद्या Trijagadvandyaa - Adored by the three worlds.ललित सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 627

Shiva and Shakti are each conceived as having three eyes. The three eyes of Shakti are the Sun, the Moon and the Fire.

Taking Trinayanaa to be the name of Maai, She is so because She gives from each of Her three eyes the boons of illumination(Sun), bliss of devotion (Moon) and fire of self-purification. Nayan नयन  means path, and devotees are laid to Her through faith in Guru's word, by meditation about Her and observation of Her miracle of Her response and assistance and leading, etc. or by Shravan श्रवण or hearing, Manan मनन or contemplation and Nididhyaasan निदिध्यासन or reflection.

[267]    त्रिपुरमालिनी  Tripuramaalini - ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 875 

One of the nine forms of Mother, conceived as presiding over the inner smaller square, previously stated in this group.

[268] Tripuraa त्रिपुरा - Master of the different triples. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 626

Mother is called Tripuraa because She is the Mother of the three entities (Brahmaa, Vishnu and Rudra). There are many triples , e.g., the three Naadis -Sushumnaa,Pingalaa and Idaa; as also Manas, Buddhi and Chitta. Again there are three Devaas, three fires , three energies. Whatever in the world is three fold, is referred to here, as belonging to Her.

Tripuraa also suggests the three aspects of Her Lotus Feet, white, red and combined coloured.

Mai's White Lotus Feet indicate the pure Samvit, i.e., universal consciousness, which is untainted by any Upaadhis, (obstructive environments), etc. The red feet are the Paraahantaa (Supreme egoism); also known as Mahat being the first emotion(vritti) from the Samvit (universal consciousness). The combined coloured feet indicate atoms of egoism, manifesting themselves, each by modification (the vritti) of " I " in individuals. This egoism is known as Ahankaar, which gets nourishment from knowledge, which is imperfect or unreal or perverse, along with all other paraphernalia of emotions, which again owe their existence to " I "(egoism).

Kabir says : The world dies with " I " 's death.
