Ābrahmastambaparyanta (आब्रह्मस्तम्बपर्यन्त) refers to “from Brahmā down to a blade of grass”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.44 (“Menā regains consciousness”).—Accordingly, as Viṣṇu said to Menā: “[...] Whatever is seen in the universe from Brahmā down to a blade of grass (ābrahmastambaparyanta) is identical with Śiva. Know it. There need not be any hesitation in this matter. He alone, in the course of his divine sport, has incarnated himself in divine form. It was by the fascination of Pārvatī’s penance that He has come to your threshold. Hence, O wife of Himavat, eschew your sorrow. Worship Śiva. You will have great pleasure. All pain will be quelled”.
