Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Sujñā (सुज्ञा) refers to “she who is intelligent” and is used to describe Pārvatī, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.25 (“The seven celestial sages test Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as the seven Sages said (with false words) to Pārvatī: “O daughter of the mountain, although you are wise and intelligent [i.e., sujñā], you are not able to see through the conduct of that celestial sage who professes to be a great scholar but who is cruel-minded. Nārada is a quibbler. He misleads others. If his words are paid heed to, you stand to lose in every respect. [...]”.
