Paramoda (परमोद) refers to “great joy”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.2.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] [Svadhā] had three daughters all of whom were of handsome features and virtuous forms. [...] The mothers of the worlds are worthy of reverence of the entire universe always. They are the bestowers of great joy (i.e., paramoda-da). They are great yoginīs, storehouses of knowledge. They pervade the three worlds”.
