Immortal She is, pervading all things that grow downward and all things that extend upwards. It is by Her brilliance and light that the darkness of ignorance vanishes. She, Devi, the Divine One who has expounded Herself as the very being of the universe and the custodian. Mother Deity, the Divine Mother, Shri who is the refuge of all forms, of all thoughts and sentiments – all Her expressions in the power of will, power of knowledge, power of creativity – Lalita, the tender one, the gentle one, Tripura Sundari, the Beauty of the Three Realms, She whose name is beauty. She, who has revealed Herself in Creation, through the powers of Shree. (The Meaning of this event for which Sadhakas celebrate).
