Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Āgatya (आगत्य) refers to “having come” (to the forest), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.28 (“Description of the fraudulent words of the Brahmacārin”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva (in guise of a Brahmacārin): “[...]  Neither Viṣṇu nor Brahmā can equal that noble soul. How can then the gods and others be? They are always dependent on Time and are not eternal. After realising this with my sharp intellect factually, I have come (āgatya) to this forest and am performing the elaborate penance for attaining Śiva. My ambition is to attain the supreme lord who is favourably disposed to His devotees and who blesses the distressed”.
