Aśeṣadarśana (अशेषदर्शन) refers to “one who sees everything” and is used as an epithet for Brahmā, in the Gargasaṃhitā chapter 6.3. Accordingly, “[...] by his mystic power he [viz., Raivata] traveled to Brahmaloka. His intention to ask for a proper husband for his daughter, he bowed before the demigod Brahmā. As the Apsarā Pūrvacitti was singing, he found his opportunity. Aware that now he had Brahmā’s attention, he spoke what was in his heart: ‘[...] You are self-born. You are the grandfather of all in the universe. You are the best of the demigods. You see everything (Aśeṣadarśana). O lord, please tell me who should become my daughter's husband, a divine husband that lives forever and has all virtues’”.
