In Hinduism

Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Samīpa (समीप) means “to be near someone” (i.e., in close proximity), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.13 (“Śiva-Pārvatī dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva: “[...] With my blessings you become qualitative and embodied. Without me, you are attributeless and incompetent to perform any activity. Being always subservient to Prakṛti you perform all activities. Self-controlled, free from aberrations and untainted by me how can you perform them? If you are really superior to Prakṛti, if what you say is true, you need not be afraid to be near me [i.e., samīpa], O Śiva”.
