अकान्ता Akaantaa - Beyond the conception of the wife of Shiva. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 860
This is a higher conception where the combined form of Shiva-Shakti शिवशक्ती is worshipped as one form and as Shakti शक्ती , i.e., in this conception Shiva disappears, or if at all peeps, it is only as Her worshipper or narrator of Scriptures relating to Her.
She is अकान्ता Akaantaa which means that She is not the wife of anyone.Here She is Mother and not Father's wife.This conception very closely approaches Maai's माई conception. The subtle difference is that She is Mother here but as Power and not as Love which is the main conception about Maai माई.

 अज्ञानध्वांतदीपिका Ajnaana-dhvaanta-dipikaa- The lamp that dispels the darkness of ignorance. A boy asks his elder brother about so many things lying in a dark room and regarding there whereabouts, shape, colour etc. Each thing requires a long description. The describer describes it and described-to hears it tiringly. None is sure whether the things will be found. But just then Mother comes in and ignites the lamp in the room. The boy leaves his elder brother and runs to the room.

I do not know how far I am able to carry the idea but Grace is not only like a micro-scope , which enables you to see things which you previously with your naked eye could not see in much larger size and with smallest details fully visible , but some indescribable thing acting in a such a wonderful manner as may be compared to the transfer of a dramatic scene. Every smallest thing of the existing scene is wiped out and entirely new scene which is often just the reverse evolved, absorbing you. As for example, a stingy man who renounces his millions.
When shall I have such Grace, Oh, Mother !! When the Grace is showered, Life, Light and Love are there. You feel conviction of one plus one is two, and experience an indescribable joy.

At what moment, with what most usual words Mother effects a life change is unimaginable.
Once a man was on a river bank at the time of eve and the boatman was taking over passengers from one bank to other. When night made things invisible he spoke out in a loud cry "This is now the last turn, come in all that want. Night is fast falling down" - that day changed the whole life of a worldly man to that of devotee.
An extremely greedy old man was ever watchful about economy in the smallest details. even the ordinary home lamp he would ignite and extinguish himself. One day he continued to do his work without igniting the light when night set in and the darling daughter said to him," At least now will not ignite the lamp? " This turned him !!
 अदृश्या Adrishyaa- Invisible.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 649
Mother is invisible and it is this invisibility which has been instrumental to her sportivity. It requires many lives before Mother becomes visible to the ordinary man, even in so far as the meaning of visibility may be taken as only admitting Her existence.Next, to some few of these to whom She is visible as existence , She becomes visible as the unfailing enforcer of Karmic Law and the Restorer of Righteousness. To a few of these She becomes visible as Reliever of distresses through devotion. To a few of these when they desist from desiring any favoures, She becomes visible in dreams. When devotees desire nothing in addition to loving Her passionately, She becomes visible in physical form, just as exceptional circumstances of life. When the devotee day and night remembers Her with repetition of names, She is visible to him as residing within himself. When everything else about the universe disappears She becomes visible to the devotee as "He himself ".
When the Founder was in Communion with Mother and became unconscious on the repetition of the Mantra Jay Maai, the couplet that brought him to consciousness was this : MAIYAA, MAIYAA, MAIYAA, KARAKE AAPHI MAIYAA HO GAYAA .- Repeating Mother, Mother, Mother, he himself become Mother. Such is the divine Mother. Once you see Her in any sense of visibility, there is a lift of many lives.
It requires Her Grace to be able to see Her working and Her Hand, in the working of the universe and the dispensations, rewards and punishments, awarded to individuals. The proverb runs " God's stick has no sound. "
 अनघा Anaghaa- Annihilator of sins. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 987
There is none equal to Mother in the matter of removing sins. Dear Reader ! if you can share with me without foolish notions of decency. Agha also means in vernacular "motion". When a baby has spoiled itself, all avoid and run away. When Mother returns , if She has gone a while away Her first work is to cleans the child and suckle it. If the Mother does not return, the baby remained that soiled condition for hours together, in the midst of so many persons and well wishers.
Mother can not bear the sight of the baby being soiled. Tell me who shall do what Mother does ? Even the ordinary mother !!

Chin reminds one of children's often catching Mother's chin and forcefully turning Her face to themselves to hear and grant the demand made by them Chin-holding is the most affectionate assertion of the child'd right to the Mother, turning Her mirror face to itself to join eyes to eyes and protruded lips to protrude lips. Reader just sublimate thy love to thy Mother. Has thy mother never thrust her betel juice, quite unexpectedly in thy mouth !Imagine the same oneness with the divine Mother, and tears will flow from thy eyes in devotion, if thou art a true Maai-ist.
