Lalita sahasranama # 72
1) Bhandasya sainyasya vadhe udyuktanam saktinam vikramena harsita
She is delighted at the performance of the Saktis that are ready to destroy the army of Bhandasura (saktis=Nakulis etc.).
2) Bhandah (=jivabhavah) tasya sainyam (=tadanugunadva-itavisyinyo vrrtayah) tasya vadhe udyuktanam (=advata vrttirupasaktinam) vissena kramah (=padaviksepah) tena harsita
Bhanda = the fettered soul, army = ideas of duality et., corresponding to the nature of the fettered soul. Saktis are the energies or ideas of non duality that are prepared to destroy the ideas of duality. Devi is delighted at the destruction of these ideas of non-duality.
