Cāriṇī (चारिणी) (Cf. Cārin) refers to “those (Gaṇas) belonging to a particular world”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.40 (“The Marriage Procession of Śiva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] The leaders were as refulgent as Brahmā, Viṣṇu and Indra, Aṇimā and other Energies. They were as brilliant and lustrous as crores of suns. O sage, some of them belonged to this terrestrial world (pṛthivī-cārin), some came through nether worlds (pātāla-cārin), some came through the sky and some came through seven heavens. Of what avail is this talk? O celestial sage, Śiva’s own Gaṇas living in all the worlds came and joined the procession of Śiva, with pleasure. [...]”.
