Purana and Itihasa (epic history)

Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Ājñapta (आज्ञप्त) refers to the “bidding” (of one’s superior), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.17 (“The dialogue between Indra and Kāmadeva”).—Accordingly, as Brahmā said to Kāma: “[...] Śiva is at present engaged in a great penance. [...] For the sake of gods, at the bidding of her father [i.e., pitṛ-ājñapta], Pārvatī is attending on Him, I hear. O Kāma, you shall certainly do everything necessary to bring about an interest in her in the mind of Śiva who has self-control. You will become contented after this. Your miseries will be destroyed. Your exploit will be permanently established in the world. Not otherwise”.
