Lalita Sahasranama # 231
mahabhairavena (=parasivena) pujita
She who is worshipped by Mahabhairava
The word Mahabhairava means the Parasiva. He is called great bhairava because he nourishes (bha-bharana), destroys (ra=ramana)and creates (vamana lit., to vomit). He is the source of all the three actions of the Universe.Hence he is great and the goddess is worshipped by such Mahabhairava. Mahabhairava is otherwise called as Mahasambhu, who invoked the Goddess from the altar fire of cidagni.
