1) Proṣita (प्रोषित) refers to “being absent” or “being on exile” (i.e., due to important work), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.54 (“Description of the duties of the chaste wife”).—Accordingly, as a Brahmin lady said to Pārvatī: “[...] A chaste lady shall take food only after her husband has taken it. O Śivā, if he stands, the woman too shall remain standing. When he sleeps she can also sleep. But she must intelligently wake up before him. She shall do what is beneficial to him. She shall love him without any sort of deception. O Śivā, she shall never show herself unembellished to him. If for any important work he is on exile [proṣitakāryārthamproṣite] she shall never adorn herself. [...]”.

2) Proṣitā (प्रोषिता) refers to a “banished wife”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.18 (“Gaṇeśa crowned as the chief of Gaṇas”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada: “[...] Whoever hears this narrative auspiciously with pure mind shall have everything auspicious and be the abode of auspiciousness. [...] The sonless, impoverished, banished wife (proṣitā) will be reunited with her husband. [...]”
