Sri Matre Namaha

Nirmamā – The One Hundred & Sixty Fourth name in Lalitha Sahasranamam.

nirgatah mamah yasyah sa

She who has not the conceit of ‘mine’

She does not have self concern.

When the idea of self comes, it implies separateness. But the Goddess is without separateness

If there is self concern, you are identifying yourself as different from the Brahman. This is called dualism which should not be pursued. If we look at this nama from the point of view of the first nama ‘Sri Mata’, as the supreme mother she does not care for herself. Her concern is only about Her children, all the living beings in this universe. From the point of view of the Brahman, self-concern is yet another quality that has been negated here.

It is interesting to note that commencing from nama 164 one nama says that She does not have that quality and the next nama says that She destroys such qualities in Her devotees. For example nama 166 is nish-papa (without sins) and the next nama 167 is papa-nashini (destroys sins of Her devotees).
