In Hinduism

Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Vicārya (विचार्य) (Cf. Suvicārya) means “to ponder over something”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.13 (“Śiva-Pārvatī dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva: “O Yogin, O lord Śiva, based on what you said how can that Prakṛti cease to exist and how can you be considered beyond that Prakṛti? You shall ponder over this [i.e., vicārya] and say with reference to the facts as they are. All these (the universe etc) are bound by Prakṛti continuously. Hence you shall not say anything, not do anything. Know that speaking, doing etc. is a Prākṛta activity”.
