Yogayuktā (योगयुक्ता) refers to “one endowed with Yogic powers”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.5.—Accordingly, as Menā eulogised Śivā (i.e., Umā/Durgā):—“[...] The living beings are being united to the different principles of the nature of permanence and otherwise and those without substance are discarded. You are the inherent power of those permanent principles. In the proper time you become a woman of ability with Yogic powers [i.e., yogayuktā]. You are the origin and the sustainer of the worlds. You are the eternal Prakṛti, the great, by whom even the Brahman is brought under control. O you, of noble nature, O mother, be pleased with me. [...]”.
