Adhinātha (अधिनाथ) refers to the “lord”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.9.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Sage Nārada:—“After you had gone to heaven, some time passed. Once Menā approached the lord of mountains and bowed to him. After waiting there for some time with humility, the beloved of the mountain addressed her lord; the chaste lady who loved her daughter as ardently as her own life spoke to the lord of mountains [i.e., śaila-adhinātha] thus. [...]”.
