In Hinduism

Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)

Source: Wisdom Library: Śāktism

Viriñca (विरिञ्च):—One of the male offspring from Mahālakṣmī (rajas-form of Mahādevī). Viriñca means “the pure one beyond passion”. This is usually a name for Brahmā, but is also sometimes applied to Viṣṇu or Śiva. Mahālakṣmī is one of the three primary forms of Devī, the other two being Mahākālī and Mahāsarasvatī. Not to be confused with Lakṣmī, she is a more powerful cosmic aspect (vyaṣṭi) of Devi and represents the guṇa (universal energy) named rajas. Also see the Devī Māhātmya, a Sanskrit work from the 5th century, incorporated into the Mārkaṇḍeya-Purāṇa.
