The many beautiful naamAs of BhUmi DEvi based on Her auspicious attributes are covered in this shlokam. The key words in this shlokam are: “Tava amUni NaamAni abhidhAna vrutthyA Tava anubhAvam kaTayanthy”.
Oh Mother! You are saluted with the names of Sarvam sahA (One who overlooks and forgives all the trespasses of the erring Jeevans), Avani (Protectoress of the universe), AchalA (Resolute in Your sankalpam to protect the Universe and its beings), VisvambharA (bearing the Universe and its beings), VipulA (immeasurable), VasundharA (One with limitles wealth). There are also many other nAmAs (anyAni) for You such as AanandhA (One who is blissful), Dharidhree, Maadhavi and PruTvee. All these nAmAs do not belong to any one else and they directly elaborate on Your vaibhavam alone (amUni nAmAni anya vimukAni abhidhAna vrutthyA Tava anubhAvam kaTayanthy).
