Vibhedinī (विभेदिनी) (Cf. Vibhedin) refers to “that which breaks through”, according to the Ambāmatasaṃhitā verse 5.94-95.—Accordingly, “She abides in the beginning in (the energies that) have been gathered together within a subtle measure (of energy), like a grain of wheat. That energy which moves in a slant and, tranquil, breaks through the condition of the mind [i.e., manobhāva-vibhedinī] as (she) matures impurities by means of knowledge, is Mālinī in the Kula”.
