Aṅgīkṛta (अङ्गीकृत) refers to “accepted”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.26 (“Pārvatī-Jaṭila dialogue”).—Accordingly, as Pārvatī said to Śiva (in guise of a Brahmacārin): “[...] O Brahmin, when Śiva went away, I came out of my father’s house, being greatly dejected, to perform this steady penance on the banks of the celestial river. Even after performing this severe penance for a long time, I could not attain Him. I was just to consign myself to fire but on seeing you, I have stopped for a while. Now you can go. I shall enter fire since I have not been accepted [i.e., aṅgīkṛta] by Śiva. Wherever I take birth I shall woo only Śiva”.
