Suprīta (सुप्रीत) refers to one who is “greatly delighted”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.43.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] then the celestial sages, sang the glory of Śiva and left for their abodes with delighted minds. Others too were pleased and left for their homes. Viṣṇu and I, went to our regions, joyfully singing the ever auspicious glory of Śiva. Lovingly honoured by Dakṣa, the great lord Śiva, the goal of the good, returned to Kailāsa along with his Gaṇas. He was greatly delighted (i.e., suprīta)”.
