[...] She makes boon bestowing and fear dispelling gestures and (holds) a rosary, book, noose, goad, large bow, and five arrows in her hands. She makes the gesture of knowledge and holds a large vessel filled with wine [i.e., vāmāmṛta-prapūrita]. O great goddess! Delighted with supreme bliss, she causes the entire universe to melt. (This is how) you should be visualized in the Transmission of the Youth. [...]”.

Prapūrita (प्रपूरित) refers to “that which covers (the whole firmament)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.21 (“Nārada instructs Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to Nārada: “O dear, of great intellect, listen to the story of the moon crested lord, my master and the cause of great enjoyment and protection. A wonderfully loud sound arose covering [i.e., prapūrita] the whole firmament when the fire issuing from Śiva’s eye burnt Kāma. On hearing that loud report and seeing Kāma burnt, Pārvatī was terribly frightened and she returned to her abode along with her maids. [...]”.
