Lalita Sahasranama # 423
1) dvija vrndaih (=traivarnika samuhaih) nisevita (=upasya)
She is worshiped by the community of twice-born
SHe is worshiped because she is Sandhya
2) dvijah (paksinah iva jivah), tesam vrndena nitaram (=abhedena) sevita (=sambaddha)
Three names, Vyahrti, Sandhya, Dvijavrndanisevita (nos 421, 422,and 423) indicate three different states. The first state, viz., waking state is indicated by Vyahrti being operation of speech, Sandhya indicates dreaming state (svapnah) as it lies between the other two states. And dvija means birds and also like them , Jiva. As birds exhausted by flight fold their wings and rest in the nest, tired jivas exhausted quit waking and dreaming states and merge into the Supreme Brahman in the susupti.
Thus She is worshiped in all these three states.
