Paripālana (परिपालन) refers to one “affording protection” and is used to describe Goddess Umā, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.3.—Accordingly, as the Gods eulogized Umā (Durgā/Satī) with devotion:—“[...] she who is the Tāmasika power of all the Gods, she who is visible in the Rājasika quality of the Creator, she who is heard by us as the benefactress and of the form of Śiva is eulogised here. Let us bow to her who is interested in residing on the Vindhya mountains (i.e., vindhyāgavāsa); who is clever in the playful activity of affording protection (i.e., paripālana) to Aṣṭāṅga Yoga; who is devoid of cessation and who acts like a raft that enables the crossing of the ocean of worldly existence with its terrible miseries”.

How will there be shelter for all beings in the last time, in the last age, after you have departed? Therefore let the Bhagavān speak about the protection of crops (sasya-paripālana) and the averting of Nāgas for the sake of all crops. [Thus] all crops will be provided, protected and increased’”.
