Lalita Sahasranama # 81
mahacca tatpasupatanca mahapasupatam, tasya astrasya agnin nirdagdha asurasya (=bhandasurasya) sainika yaya sa
She who burnt the soldiers of the demon (Bhanda) with the fire of astra called mahapasupata
Mahapasupatastragni = the highest mental modification connected with non-duality, which gradually increases according to devotion.
Asurasainika = the mental modifications connected with ignorance
The mahapasupata mantra referred to here is different from the six syllable pasupata mantra. The former belongs to Sadasiva and the latter to the Isvara. Hence this mantra belongs to Sadasiva
