In Hinduism

Shaivism (Shaiva philosophy)

Source: Yakṣiṇī-sādhana in the Kakṣapuṭa tantra

Prabhutā (प्रभुता) or Sulocanā is the name of one of the thirty-two Yakṣiṇīs mentioned in the Kakṣapuṭatantra, while Sulocanā is also mentioned as one of the thirty-six Yakṣiṇīs mentioned in the Uḍḍāmareśvaratantra. In the yakṣiṇī-sādhana, the Yakṣiṇī is regarded as the guardian spirit who provides worldly benefits to the practitioner. The Yakṣiṇī (e.g., Prabhutā) provides, inter alia, daily food, clothing and money, tells the future, and bestows a long life, but she seldom becomes a partner in sexual practices.

Prabhūta (प्रभूत) or Prabhūtāgama refers to one of upāgamas (supplementary scriptures) of the Ajitāgama which is one of the twenty-eight Siddhāntāgama: a classification of the Śaiva division of Śaivāgamas. The Śaivāgamas represent the wisdom that has come down from lord Śiva, received by Pārvatī and accepted by Viṣṇu. The purpose of revealing upāgamas (e.g., Prabhūta Āgama) is to explain more elaborately than that of mūlāgamas (e.g., Ajita-āgama) and to include any new idea if not dealt in mūlāgamas.
