Praharṣita (प्रहर्षित) refers to “delight”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.23 (“Attempt of Himavat to dissuade Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to her parents and others: “O father, O mother, O kinsmen, have all of you forgotten what I had said formerly. Even now listen to my vow. This great God by whom Kāma has been burnt in fury is detached (you say). I shall propitiate him, by means of penance. He is favourably disposed to His devotees. All of you please go to your respective abodes with delight [i.e., praharṣita]. He will certainly be pleased. You need not be anxious over. [...]”.
