Viśeṣatas (विशेषतस्) refers to “particularly”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.4.—Accordingly, as Umā (Durgā/Satī) spoke to the Gods:—“[...] Formerly, O gods, with great devotion Himācala and Menā rendered service to me in my life as Sati, like my parents. Even now they continuously render me service and Menā particularly [i.e., viśeṣatas] (does so). There is no doubt about my becoming their daughter. Just as you, Rudra too, desires my incarnation in the abode of Himavat. Hence I shall incarnate. That shall be the end of misery in the world. [...]”
