Adrīndra (अद्रीन्द्र) refers to the “lords of the mountains”, according to verse 6.21.14 of the Mokṣopāya.—Accordingly, as Bhuśuṇḍa said to Vasiṣṭha: “[...] When the suns blaze and the mountains have become rubble, then, having performed concentration on the water element, I remain with my mind steady. When the lords of the mountains (adrīndra) have been pulverized and the winds of the dissolution blow, then, having performed concentration on the earth element, I remain unmoving in the ether. [...]”.
