Abhrita (अभ्रित) refers to a “cloud-covered sky”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.6.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] At the proper time, he saw his wife Menā about to be delivered of the child, with delight, as one sees the sky enveloped with clouds [i.e., abhrita]. The lord of the mountains felt greatly rejoiced on seeing his wife of sound and auspicious in limbs the ‘labour-chamber’ presided over by physicians. She felt very brilliant with the mother of the universe in her womb. In the mean time, O sage, Viṣṇu, and other gods as well as the sages came there and eulogised Śivā who was in the womb”.
