Amṛtāharaṇa (अमृताहरण) refers to one of the various Vibhava manifestations according to the Īśvarasaṃhitā 24.267-272.—Accordingly, “the Lord, those wisdom has become bloated with nectar, who brought nectar (hence the name Amṛtāharaṇa), wearing yellow garment, with a single face and four hands shall be meditated upon. His hand is resting on his buttock, he is ornamented by conch and discus, resting the middle part (of the body) with the right hand, having a form of the hill, who was pure knowledge, who destroys the fear (for the devotees) of getting karman, who directs well His devotees with the intellect, affectionate to His devotees, who churned the milky ocean with His māyā, who brought out nectar after stirring it, a healthy rival for hunger, thirst etc. He is to be treated as pure and imperishable in the midst of the sea of māyā, a nectar for the souls and peerless by the act of destroying food”.

These Vibhavas (eg., Amṛtāharaṇa) represent the third of the five-fold manifestation of the Supreme Consciousness the Pāñcarātrins believe in. Note: Māyā means wonderful power which alone would make the milky ocean cleaned.
