Sri Matre Namaha

Krodha-śamanī – The One Hundred & Sixty Ninth name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.

Krodham samayati iti

She who extinguishes anger

Krodha-śamanī : Krodha + Samani

Krodha is counted as one of the six enemies. It spoils all the acts of devotion of the devotees.

Krodha-śamanī : Krodha means anger and shamani means controller – it means she controls the aner of devotee or she destroyes the anger of devotee

She destroys anger / Anger control of Her devotees.

Anger is one of the six deterrents to self-realization (refer nama 156). It is said that any worship done with anger destroys the effect of such worship.

Krishna cites the reasons for anger (Gita II.63,64) ‘while contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment to them and from such attachment desire develops, and from desire anger develops and from anger total dissolution arises…’. That is why we have repeatedly discussed in this site about the evils of sensory organs. Krishna also says that material mode of passion is responsible for all the sufferings we undergo.
