Āspada (आस्पद) refers to the “word” [?] (of all perfections and characteristics), according to the Netratantra of Kṣemarāja: a Śaiva text from the 9th century in which Śiva (Bhairava) teaches Pārvatī topics such as metaphysics, cosmology, and soteriology.—Accordingly, [verse 2.22cd-28ab]—“[...] That is supreme strength, that is supreme amṛt. The highest of splendors is highest light of light. The divine Lord is the supreme cause of all the world. The creator, supporter, and destroyer are not as strong as this. This receptacle of mantras is the word of all perfections and characteristics (sarvaguṇa—sarvasiddhiguṇāspadam). [...]”.

It is all bliss, secret, omniscient, and facing everywhere. It generates the six-fold path (of the universe). It is all things, the place where death arises (mṛtyūdaya-āspada) (as well as) the seed and womb of the universe. It is the abode of the mother, the secret energy. That current is the lord Akula who, in order to emanate the universe, conceives his own imperishable Self to be Śakti”.

Then he extended his invitation highly pleasing to his kinsmen stationed in different places with great delight (sukha-āspada—nikhilānāṃ sukhāspadam). Then he began collecting foodstuffs and other requisite articles intended for the performance of the marriage. [...]”.
