Svātmārāma (स्वात्माराम) refers to “delighting oneself in one’s own soul”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.16. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] On hearing these words of mine—of Brahmā—in the presence of Viṣṇu, Śiva, the lord of worlds spoke to me with his face beaming with a smile: [...] Of what avail is a beloved to me in this world since I am in the path of abstinence delighting myself in my own soul (svātmārāma), freed of attachment, unsullied, with the body of an ascetic, possessed of knowledge, seeing himself, free from aberrations and a non-reveller. Besides I am always unclean and inauspicious. Hence say now what can I do with a loving wife?”.

Svātmārāmā (स्वात्मारामा) refers to “she who experiences the delight of her own inner nature” [?], according to the Lalitāsahasranāma.—Lalitā’s thousand names are eulogized in the Lalitāsahasranāma, describing the goddess’s spiritual beauty on the analogy of physical, sensuous beauty. [...] She embodies the great play of intercourse between herself and her partner (mahārati) (218). Similarly, she is the Great Enjoyment (mahābhogā) (219). Of course, this union is not external. The bliss of the union she embodies is the delight she experiences of her own inner nature, which is bliss itself (svātmārāmā) (878). This bliss is the result of union. For this to take place, there must first be separation. [...]”.
