Adhīśa (अधीश) refers to “Lord” (i.e., of the Gods), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.2.40.—Accordingly, as Brahmā narrated to Nārada:—“[...] after going beyond Alakā, the capital of the king of Yakṣas and the Saugandhika park, they saw the fig-tree of Śiva. [...] Beneath that vaṭa of yogic potentialities, Viṣṇu and other Devas saw Śiva seated. [...] Viṣṇu and the Devas performed obeisance and spoke to Śiva who was revered by the lords of Devas, Siddhas, Gaṇas (i.e., sura-siddha-gaṇa-adhīśa) and the sages”.
