Purana and Itihasa (epic history)Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation
Pramuda (प्रमुद) refers to “(great) delight”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.5.—Accordingly, after Goddess Śivā (i.e., Umā/Durgā) granted a boon to Menā:—“[...] O sage, when their mutual sexual intercourse took place, Menā conceived and the child in the womb gradually grew up. She gave birth to a beautiful son Maināka [...] In the city of Himācala there was a wonderful celebration of the event. The couple were highly delighted [i.e., pramuda-ādhikya]. Their pain was at an end. He gave monetary gifts and charitable offerings to brahmins. Their devotion to Śivā and Śiva became increased. [...]”.
