Upaśruti (उपश्रुति).—The patron-goddess of Uttarāyaṇa (The sun’s progress towards North in the former half of the year). In Mahābhārata, Ādi Parva, Chapter 166 mention is made of how this goddess made it possible for Indrāṇī to see Indra through the holes of a stalk of lotus. It was by the help of Upaśruti that Śacīdevī and Indra met together. (Mahābhārata Udyoga Parva, Chapter 14, Stanzas 12 and 13).
