Source: archive.org: Shiva Purana - English Translation

Ātithya (आतिथ्य) refers to “(extending) acts of hospitality”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.22 (“Description of Pārvatī’s penance”).—Accordingly, after Menā spoke to Pārvatī: “[...] Performing such austerities and engrossed in the muttering of the five-syllabled mantra, Pārvatī meditated on Śiva, the bestower of fruits of our cherished desires. Everyday during leisure time she used to water the trees planted by her along with her maids and extended acts of hospitality [i.e., ātithya]. Chill gusts of wind, cool showers, and unbearable heat she bore with equanimity”.
