Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Abhogin (अभोगिन्) refers to one who is a “non-reveller”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.16. Accordingly as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] On hearing these words of mine—of Brahmā—in the presence of Viṣṇu, Śiva, the lord of worlds spoke to me with his face beaming with a smile: [...] Of what avail is a beloved to me in this world since I am in the path of abstinence delighting myself in my own soul, freed of attachment, unsullied, with the body of an ascetic, possessed of knowledge, seeing himself, free from aberrations and a non-reveller (abhogin). Besides I am always unclean and inauspicious. Hence say now what can I do with a loving wife?”.
