Lalita Sahasranama # 112
1) Bhuvan (mahadevam samsaram kamam va) anayati (=jiva-yati) iti
She who gives life to either SIva or Samsara or Kama
Bhava = Mahadeva or it may mean samsara or kama, i.e., God of love, viz., Cupid, she gives life to all these three.
2) Bhavam (= jivarnarupam jalam) anayati (=jivayati) iti
she is the giver of life to Bhava, as water form of Siva is called Bhava.
3) Bhavani also means the wife of Bhava. By grammatical rule 'Indravaruna', etc., here 'anuk' agama takes place and dipa also takes place in the sense of feminine gender. So it becomes Bhavani. Bhavani is said to be the presiding deity of one of the pithas, namely, Sthanesvara.
