Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Āgata (आगत) refers to “arriving”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.20 (“The story of the submarine fire”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to Nārada: “[...] Taking that fire mare-like in form, at the will of Śiva, I, the lord of the worlds, went to the sea shore, for the benefit of the worlds. O sage, on seeing me arrived [i.e., āgata] there, the sea took a human form and approached me with palms joined in reverence. Bowing to and duly eulogising me, the grandfather of all the worlds, the ocean said lovingly”.
