Lalita Sahasranama # 69
1) geyacakrakhyam ratham arudhaya mantrinyaparitah sevita
She is attended by mantrini who rides the chariot called Geyacakra
Mantrini is another name for Syamala Devi
2) geyam cakram yasya tadrso rahta yasya (suryamandalasya) tararudhubhih mantrinibhi (yoginibhih) parisevita
Here Geya means to be praised; cakra=wheel, ratha = the disc of the sun. Those who ride the geyacakra are yoginis devoted to Srividya. They are called Mantrinis.
3) Geyahcakrakhyo rathah yasyah sa (tripurasundari) tasya arudham tena yo mantrinih (mantri nayatiti)tena parisevita
According to this interpretation, the word Geya means important cakra, i.e., sricakra ratha = chariot, arudha = contemplated upon tripurasundari whose chariot is that important cakra i.e., cakra is contemplated upon. The person who obtains the power of the mantra becomes Mantrini when the realization comes to him, he obtains the power of using the mantra, which is described in Tantraraja and which is to be learnt from the Guru.
It is explained in the SiSu and its commentaryn (I23). Even in his commentary in SiSu, Ksemaraja describes it at length.
