Bhānusamaprabhā (भानुसमप्रभा) refers to the “light of the sun”, according to the Devīpañcaśataka, an important source of the Kālīkrama that developed in Kashmir after the Kālī Mata of the Jayadrathayāmala.—Accordingly, “[...] It is Śiva’s will in the form of the Transmental and With Mind, (arisen as) both non-dual and dual (respectively). [...] Linked to Moon, Sun and Fire, she generates the seeds of (her) energies. Her form is one and, transcendent (nirālokā), is the supreme abode. She assumes a state of oneness in the middle of one who possesses (her) radiant energy. She shines, present in multiplicity (nānākhya) like the light of many suns [i.e., bhūri-bhānusamaprabhā]. [...]”.
