Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Mudā (मुदा) refers to “(immeasurable) joy”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.5.—Accordingly, after Goddess Śivā (i.e., Umā/Durgā) granted a boon to Menā:—“Saying so, the Goddess Śivā vanished from there even as Menā was watching. O dear one, on getting the desired boon from the Goddess, Menā attained immeasurable joy [i.e., mudā]. Her misery occasioned by penance vanished. Bowing down in that direction, the chaste lady of delighted mind returned to her abode repeating the benedictory word “Jaya” (be victorious)”.Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: The Purana Index
