Prajeśa (प्रजेश) refers to Brahmā (lit. “the lord of the people”), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.17 (“The dialogue between Indra and Kāmadeva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to Kāma: “[...] Securing a wonderful boon from Brahmā, the great demon Tāraka has become invincible and a pest for everyone. [...] The noose of Varuṇa, the god of waters, snapped. When hurled at his neck by Viṣṇu, the discus Sudarśana was blunted. The death of this wicked demon has been foretold by Brahmā, the lord of the people [i.e., prajeśa], at the hands of the boy born of Śiva. the great Yogin. O dear friend, this task must be achieved by you diligently. Then we, the gods, can be very happy. [...]”.
