Vimṛśya (विमृश्य) refers to “self-reflection” (i.e., ‘to ponder over one’s true self’), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.13 (“Śiva-Pārvatī dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva: “[...] O lord, please ponder over who you are [i.e., vimṛśya] and who this subtle Prakṛti is. Without Prakṛti how can the great lord of the phallic form exist? You are worthy of the worship, respect and meditation of all living beings for ever, thanks to Prakṛti. Thinking of this in your heart, please reply”.
