Ānandita (आनन्दित) is the name of a catuṣpadi metre (as popularly employed by the Apabhraṃśa bards), as discussed in books such as the Chandonuśāsana, Kavidarpaṇa, Vṛttajātisamuccaya and Svayambhūchandas.—Ānandita has 15 mātrās in each of its four lines, divided into the groups of 4, 4, 4 and [IS] mātrās. Ānandita is almost identical with the Pāraṇaka, though Padminī (made up of 4, 4, 5, [S] mātrās) is slightly different from it.

Ānandita (आनन्दित) refers to “bliss”, according to the Kularatnoddyota, one of the earliest Kubjikā Tantras.—Accordingly: “[...] Having seen and conceived (my) own Śakti and become blissful (ānandita-ātmā) (thereby), (my) radiance, consisting of (both) Kula and Akula, is the fire offering of divine energy which is Akula that has gone forth (projected out from the) Bliss (of our union) along the Path of the Void. (Thus) Mitranātha, whose qualities resemble mine, and is (my) incarnation, attained birth (here) below. His Śakti is beyond measure and intent on (the practice of) vow and discipline, her body is born of the (primal, universal) cause”.

Ānandita (आनन्दित) refers to “happiness”, according to the King Vatsarāja’s Pūjāstuti called the Kāmasiddhistuti (also Vāmakeśvarīstuti), guiding one through the worship of the Goddess Nityā.—Accordingly, “[...] O goddess, I praise you with mind and speech. Your greatness is primordial. Your limbs are slightly ruddy like the morning sun, and you have made the triple world happy (ānandita-tribhuvanā). You are the bride of the god [i.e., Śiva], and possess a body inseparable [from his]. You bestow worldly enjoyment and also liberation from [the world]. You are the stream [of consciousness or immortality], O ruler of worlds. [...]”.
