Apanodana (अपनोदन) refers to “removing (the distress)”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.19 (“Kāma’s destruction by Śiva”).—Accordingly, as the Gods said to Śiva: “[...] O lord, the chaste Rati is lonely and miserable now. O lord Śiva, she is in great lamentation, O bestower of everything, please console her. If you have finally disposed off Kāma, O Śiva, you are desirous of annihilating all the gods by means of your fury. On seeing the distress of Rati, the gods are almost doomed. Hence you must remove [i.e., apanodana] the distress of Rati”.
