Parāmṛṣṭa (परामृष्ट) refers to “cognized”, according to the Īśvarapratyabhijñākārikā III.2.12.—Accordingly, “When further [the layers of the objective “self”] from the Void to the [very] tissues of the body are transmuted by means of the ‘alchemical elixir,’ i.e. by the [fundamental] ‘I’-sense which is certainly conjoined with the qualities of magnificent power, eternality, sovereignty, [and others] of such nature that are cognized (parāmṛṣṭa) [as aspects of that ‘I’], then in this state [called] Beyond the Fourth they abandon (as it were) their objectivity”.

Parāmṛṣṭa (परामृष्ट) refers to “(being) touched (by conditions)” (as opposed to Aparāmṛṣṭa—‘untouched’), according to the Netratantroddyota commentary on the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 22.11]—“[Śiva is] he who exists in a fixed condition, who brings about all conditions [in all] time[s] and direction[s] but is not touched by [those conditions] (aparāmṛṣṭaākrāntikṛt tadaparāmṛṣṭaś ca). He controls them. He is their leader, [he leads] quickly, he wishes it, and he quickly brings [that which is wished for into being. He] projects [all conditions] outward and he also causes them to be made one with himself [internally, inside his consciousness]. [...]”.
